F or those who say disco sucks, I say suck on this. “Shine A Little Love” was released as the advance single for Discovery, a shining star at the gate of a new constellation that held such future nebulore as “Don’t Bring Me Down,” “Confusion” and “The Diary of Horace Wimp.” As the title announced, Discovery marked a near-complete immersion in the expanding (and collapsing) world of disco. In many ways, it answered the question of what The Beatles would have sounded like if they had lived long enough to embrace disco (the question of whether they would have, of course, remains). “Shine A Little Love” and “Silly Love Songs,” for example, could have cohabited in the same catalog. The flip side of this single, “Jungle,” dates form the earlier Out of the Blue, and Beatlespotters might hear a hint of Bungalow Bill in it. The A side is shorter than the original elpee version and is, if I’m not mistaken (since I am lazy) missing the original album intro.

The band made a video around the entire Discovery album, which opened with a music video for Shine A Little Love. It features the band members playing their instruments (I didn't say it was a good video), led by Jeff "The Human Earmuff" Lynne.
