Format: Audio CD
This is a long over due release of one of the great albums of 1970s Disco music from the Munich Machine.
Giorgio Moroder created the Munich Machine in 1976 The Munich Machine was a group of session musicians that played on many Disco record in the second half of the 1970s. They provided backing vocals and instrumentation for people like Donna Summer, Boney M, Silver Convention and La Bionda.
Back in 1977 you would have to go to the Disco to know about either of these albums. In 1977 when I was a teenager I had this album and loved it. The music on these discs was not the sort of thing you would find on radio in the UK.
The disc contains the entire first album released by Moroder as The Munich Machine. The album is called "Munich Machine introducing the midnight ladies." The first track was originally the only track on side one of the vinyl original release. It lasts a full 15 minutes and 42 seconds.
The original cover was graced with two dancing robots. The other tracks originally formed the entire second side of the original vinyl release. These tracks form an instrumental medley of Moroder/Bellotte's hits that they had already had with Donna Summer, Roberta Kelly and Giorgio Moroder as a solo artist. .
Get On The Funk Train begins with an intro of "destination, funk" and further coaxes you with examples of various disco beats & rhythm which leads into the main dance song. It is really mainly instrumental with "get on the funk train" as a random chorus.
The medley of other tracks begins with an electronic intro of Love To Love You, Baby and random vocals, then proceeds into chorus.

A disco classic 19 May 2010
By R. Shaffer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love Giorgio Moroder but have never heard this album until now. It's well worth it as a lover of vintage disco. Munich Machine was credited as helping on Donna Summer's albums "A Trilogy Of Love" and "Four Seasons Of Love", Roberta Kelly's "Troublemaker" and Giorgio Moroder's solo album "Knights In White Satin". This was Munich Machine's first solo album. It contains the hit singles from each of the albums that they worked on, as sort of a Greatest Hits. Only the songs have been reworked (by Giorgio and Pete) with breathy female vocals and a Battlestar Galactica (1970s version) type synthesizer which accompanies them.

The sound quality of this new CD is AMAZING! This sounds like it could have been produced today. Every sound is crystal clear and the bass beats really thump! All the tracks are properly normalized and will really fill your speakers. This CD is so worth it. I really hope that they continue this trend and re-release "A Whiter Shade Of Pale". That is one of the best Giorgio penned disco CDs EVER!

Total Munich Machine Moroder 1 April 2010
By Robert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Synths & electronic disco has always played an important role in the Giorgio Moroder franchise, and this is a great example of his very early works, right soon after his Knights In White Satin album. Get On The Funk Train begins with an intro of "destination, funk" and further coaxes you with examples of various disco beats & jives which leads into the main dance song. GOTFT is really mainly instrumental with "get on the funk train" random chorus, but the instrumentals are as fine as Donna Summer's "Je Taime" or even her earlier works.
The flipside of the original disco album was what I call The Munich Machine Medley that gets going with an electronic intro of Love To Love You, Baby vocal, then proceeds into chorus. Following this song are many familiar disco songs built on the Giorgio Moroder "Munich Machine" foundation like, "Troublemaker," "Try Me, I Know We Can Make It," "Spring Affair," & "I Wanna Funk With You, Tonite."
This album was a smash hit when it was first released. I know, because I DJ'd it in the original disco club setting, and the dance floor was jam packed. Those were the days of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love." Sold seperately.

Lost Giorgio Moroder production back in print 9 Mar 2010
By Daniel W. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Another side project of Giorgio Moroder while he was having huge success producing Donna Summer, the Munich Machine catalog has not found its way to CD until now. And the sound quality is superb. This more obscure, less mainstream disco album is very reminiscent of Moroder's mostly instrumental disco tracks. Get on the Funk Train has very few vocals (just a female chorus singing the title now and then). The medley (which used to be side 2 of the CD) is a medley of Donna Summer songs along with a Roberta Kelly track (Troublemaker) and a Moroder solo track (I Wanna Funk Tonite).

Gold Legion is reissuing some great disco classics. The only downside here is, this CD only runs 32 minutes, leaving plenty of room to have included "Whiter Shade of Pale", the other Munich Machine album! That would have been a dream come true. Hopefully, Gold Legion will get around to releasing that one as well.

Disco Classic 5 Jun 2008
By Pieter Uys - Published on Amazon.com
This 1977 disco classic was produced by 1970s dance legends Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte who were also behind the success of Donna Summer. So much exceptional dance music emerged in those years that although I was aware of it, this album didn't really stand out. What a surprise then to find how appealing it still sounds after all these years! Predominantly instrumental, the album's female vocals appear in just the right places to create the right atmosphere.

Get On The Funk Train is a long track with impressive synthesizer, strings and saxophone dominating the meandering melody, interspersed by strategic whistles. Mainly instrumental, it has some soulful vocals by The Midnite Ladies. This version of Love To Love You Baby, the song made famous by Donna, displays many appealing textures and melodic development, as does the another track associated with the disco diva: Try Me, I Know We Can Make It.

The album's greatest hit, I Wanna Funk With You Tonite, was popular and notorious for the double entendre enhanced by a deliberately ambiguous pronunciation. It has stood the test of time very well with its energetic beat, exuberant and sometimes processed vocals and catchy tune. This delightful album concludes with a reprise of Love To Love You Baby. What an exhilarating trip down memory lane! Many of the songs are interpretations of songs on Donna Summer's albums Love to Love You Baby, A Love Trilogy and Four Seasons of Love, all of which I highly recommend.
