The 1980 Disco LP from El Coco, “Revolución,” with an illustration that was later re-used on a greatest hits compilation.
El Coco means “Boogeyman.” I didn’t know that until last week’s episode of “Grimm,” and it makes me wonder if this was an intentional use of the double meaning in the name of their Disco-Boogie group. Anyone?
From 1980, Caprice performing “Shame And Scandal In The Family.”

From Wikipedia: ”Shame & Scandal" is a song originally performed bycalypsosingerSir Lancelot.The song is a calypso and reggae classic, and was written for the movieI Walked with a Zombiein 1943.The song was originally titled “Fort Holland Calypso Song”.TrinidadiancalypsonianLord Melodyused the song as the basis of his song “Shame and Scandal”, although he titled it “Wau, Wau”.This version used the same chorus as the original 1940s song, but with new verses.
In 1965, the British comedy actor, Lance Percival, reached number 37 in the UK Singles Chart with his cover version, under the expanded title of “Shame and Scandal in the Family”.Jamaica’s Kingston Hilton Hotel resident mento band, The Hiltonaires, also recorded it as “Shame and Scandal” in the mid-1960s.
From 1980, Sonny Jenkins And The New York Potpourri Strings performing “That Friday Pay (Part 1).” I first became aware of this “Friday” song on Dimitri From Paris’ 2004 compilation, “The Kings Of Disco.”
