(La) Belle Epoque, "Miss Broadway" is a very much overlooked album. More than a one trick pony, it goes beyond the disco cover of their sole UK hit "Black is Black" which more or less takes up the whole of original vinyl side two in a typical segued disco album fashion of the seventies. Broken down into four parts: "Disco Sound, Black is Black, Why Don't you Lay Down & Black is Black Reprise". It's classic seventies floor filler, the thudding bass drum driving from one section to another. Great production and instrumentation, excellent harmonies and clever use of the full epic 14 minutes wasting no time without too much repitition. As it draws to a close, each instrument disappearing one by one and vocals fading leaving just a drum track and bass line. This stops and a strange, squelching sound oozes across the speakers, representative of what - I'm not sure, but fun all the same!
Original side one is a completely different story, being a lot less of a disco sound, more of a jazz ballad and punk meets disco style title track where lead singer Evelyn Lenton showcases her awesome gritty, gravelesque vocals as she aggressively shouts the spoken intro to a hypnotic driven and much sampled dance beat. "Miss Broadway" is about the yearnings of a street prostitute who craves stardom, a bath, some dresses and a fancy car. Scary miss Lenton deivers this brilliant 7 minute epic with great musical theatrics as the oddest combination of instruments including folk style strings and orchestral summersaults. It's brilliantly delivered with a force of a simple hypnotic baseline and stomping rhythms. A million miles from "Black is Black", a risk that pays off brilliantly. Played several times it just invades the brain and gets better and better.

belle epoque forever 7 Jan. 2011
By jose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
i had this tape since i remember, it was together with their other LP BAMALAMA, but this one with the 14 minute version of BLACK IS BLACK, you don't need the rest of the songs to rate this album. MISS BROADWAY is also good, the others are 2 ballads with no importance, but just the one full face 14 minute of BLACK IS BLACK is worth the purchase. you may end up liking the very fast tempo of MISS BROADWAY.
