“Up Jumped The Devil” by John Davis Monster Orchestra – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
John David and The Monster Orchestra put the funk in disco music without taking the chic sound away. The magic of Mr. John Davis is best as outlining the disco era in a progressive pop mode. With tracks like “Ain’t That Enough For You” and “Love Magic” very little is left to imagine about disco music. His 1977 project titled “Up Jumped The Devil” is one of the dance experiences that bring the horns and funky guitars home.
I have taken the 12” version of “Up Jumped The Devil” and created a Disco Video Mix along with the 1973 horror/psychological drama, “The Exorcist” starring Ellen Burstyn, Max Von Sydow, Jason Miller and Linda Blair. A playful clip of the graphic scenes of the possession of a young girl by the devil who just can’t stay down.
The film was directed by William Friedkin
