For Yon Dell Rats Only: 35 of the Geator's Greatest, Grooviest, Ginchiest, Gone Golden Gassers! (Part 3)

If you're looking for the world's most authentic Jerry Blavat playlist -it's here!

In the early and mid 70s Jerry and the gang ushered in the disco era and they did it in style! Forget what you think you know about disco. If the Geator played it and his kids danced to it you knew it was cool; and I've hand picked some of the coolest tracks from Jerry's Place. Scroll down and you'll find everything you need to have yourself a knocked out Geator dance party! Pick and click, crank it to the max, and hit that floor like never before!

"This World" - Sweet Inspirations (October 1970)



"Zing Went the Strings of My Heart" - Trammps (July 1972)



"Look Me Up" - Blue Magic (August 1973)



"Dirty Ol Man" - Three Degrees (October 1973)



“Satisfaction Guaranteed (or Take Your Love Back)” –
Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes (April 1974)



"Honey Bee" - Gloria Gaynor (April 1974)



“Got to Get You Back” - Sons of Robin Stone (April 1974)



“Love is Just Around the Corner" – Sons of Robin Stone
(April 1974)



"TSOP (The Sound of Philadelphia)" - MFSB featuring
The Three Degrees (April 1974)



"Lady Marmalade" - LaBelle (January 1975)



“I’ll Be Holding On” – Al Downing (February 1975)



“Mighty Cloud of Joy” – Mighty Clouds of Joy (March 1975)



Now that's gospel-tinged disco done right - just inches across the line into the secular domain!

BONUS TRACK:

I love all things Philly and here's a blast from the more recent past...the ultra rare "Keep It On" by The G Five, a rappin' def jam tribute to Dr. J., Julius Errrrrving and the 1982-83 Philadelphia 76ers NBA Championship Team!

To the Spectrum everyone cos the Sixers have begun...
to get hot!




Did you hear that reference to station WGAL-AXY? Cool!

Gather 'round and listen up yon Dellettes, Dellers and other fellers. It's been a monumental bombastic blast having you join me for my authentic knocked-out Geator dance party! Give yourself a big boss round of apploss, hoss! But as all good things must come to an end it's time to bid farewell
and adieu to our 3-part Jerry Blavat tribute.

Geator, we thank you for the Memories in Margate, Ventnor, Atlantic City, Wildwood, OCNJ, LBI, Maple Shade, Vineland, Pennsauken, Cherry Hill, Bristol, Mount Holly, Havertown, Cheltenham, Ardmore, Passyunk, Germantown, Center City Philly, the Greater Delaware Valley, and all across Central PA and the USA! You're the greatest, man!

Have a Shady day...

and as a close personal friend of mine, Mister Jerry Blavat always said in parting, keep on rockin' baby, coz you only rock once!
