Heavy sans face from the disco era

This font looks so familiar, yet i can't put my finger on what it is.

Any ideas?

Helvetica Black?

That was the first one I tested. It's quite similar, but the type on the picture seems quite a lot heavier. Maybe that'll just do though. I'm still curious if they made a heavier-than-black cut of helvetica in the 70's or if it was made heavier by hand?

How'bout Akzidenz Grotesk Super

It's definitely not Akzidenz -- check out the C.

I just opened the image in Photoshop, reset the type in Helvetica Neue Black, laid it on top, and it appears to be a match (the weight seems the same)
