Come And Take A Trip With Me. Fantasy You Can Be Sure...
So begins a heady trip around the world courtesy of Grand Tour. Originally released in 1977 on the Butterfly label and produced
by Canadian disco duo Willi Morrison and Ian Guenther this album showcases six fully orchestrated tracks of an extraordinary
pedigree. The Grand Tour is an outstanding example of sophisticated North American disco, whilst Flight From Versailles ,
as the title suggests, has a much more European flavour along with the insanely catchy Let s Go Boating . And a stunning
cover of the Yardbirds Still I m Sad is another real highlight. As well as being a hit on the dance floor the Grand Tour album s
lounge style proved equally popular at late night parties where drug and drink fuelled revellers could take off on a mind
excursion together Grand Tour taking them on a trip like no other! Never before issued on CD this Disco Recharge special
edition also includes many of the single edits as well as a brand new Grand Tour medley created especially for this release.
Guenther and Morrison s Southern Exposure album takes up disc two of this special edition. Only sparsely distributed outside
of the US and Canada upon its release in 1979, this is another tour-de-force disco album with its feet planted firmly on the
dance floor. Headin South has influences of Dan Hartman whilst On Our Way probably the strongest track has a lush
70 s Euro porn style and a number of funky breakdowns that will resonate with the aficionados as well as the disco curious.
Love Is gallops along in a more traditional US style but with killer hooks and finally Tight Pants ups the camp and ends
the album on a definite high. Never before released on CD this edition comes with the original 7 edits of Love Is and Tight
Pants and well as brand new edits of Headin South and On Our Way .
