Pam Todd & Love Exchange – 1977 – Let’s Get Together
Rare Disco. Check out prices here
“Let’s Get Together” was sampled in 8 songs here
This is disco heaven, with Greg Carmichael (of Robot Band fame) fusing superb futuristic grooves and 60s Motown arrangements.
Worth it for the outright quirkiness of “Popeye Disco” alone. I couldn’t keep a straight face during this one, that’s for sure.

Pam Todd is best remembered for her work with underground disco hero Greg Carmichael, a producer noted for his spacy, funky sound and heavy use of Moog synthesizers and other electronics (usually in tandem with Patrick Adams, but not in this case).
Carmichael helmed Todd’s first LP, 1977’s Let’s Get Together, which was credited to Pam Todd & Love Exchange and featured the cult items “Making Love“, “Can’t Hold This Feeling“, and the title track.
Carmichael was gone when Todd recorded her follow-up album, Together, in 1978, but the sound was similarly spacy; this time credited to Pam Todd & the Gold Bullion Band, the record also produced a minor club hit in “Baise Moi (Kiss Me)”.
