As with that one, it's a personal and totally subjective list, and some folks will moan that "___" isn't really disco, well tough! Incidentally, I'm including 1980 chart entries, (basically because it's my list!), and I've only included tracks that I already possess. Time to turn up the hi-fi and get those feet tappin'...
A Taste Of Honey - Boogie Oogie Oogie
Al Hudson And The Partners - You Can Do It
Alicia Bridges - I Love The Nightlife
Amanda Lear - Queen Of Chinatown
Amii Stewart - Knock On Wood
Amii Stewart - Light My Fire
Andrea True Connection - More, More, More
Anita Ward - Ring My Bell
Ashford & Simpson - Found A Cure
Average White Band - Let's Go Round Again
Average White Band - Pick Up The Pieces
Baccara - Yes Sir, I Can Boogie
Barry White - What Am I Gonna Do With You?
Barry White - You're the First, the Last, My Everything

These albums totally kicked my ass! I can’t think of any other female vocal group that was making funk that was this hard-edged this late in the decade. The Norman Whitfield-penned hits (Theme From "Which Way Is Up?" and What You Waitin' For) are both danceable, infectious and great, but there’s a lot more here worth looking into. I especially love the synthed-up space-funk grooves like Three Girls, The Force and Starbob. And these gals can sing!
Frankly, I think they’re more in the Parliament/Funkadelic spirit than the “real” girl groups that George Clinton produced (i.e.: Parlet and The Brides of Funkenstein). More diverse, too, as evidenced by the 60’s girl-group styled pop of I'll Always Love You and the haunting, Gloria Lynne-like vocal jazz ballad Chameleon Lady.
