5.0 out of 5 stars Second album by Munich Machine produced by Giorgio Moroder, 4 Sept. 2011
Marcia "marcia" (england) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Whiter Shade Of Pale (Audio CD)
This is a long over due release of the second and great album 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 this disc was not the sort of thing you would find on radio in the

Their second album A Whiter Shade of Pale (1978) introduced singer Chris Bennett on an Electro-pop cover of Procol Harum's hit. She also posed naked on the cover, even posing on the back cover with the two dancing robots from the first album. Once again the single releases did not impact the UK singles chart but like its predecessor the album was very popular in the Disco clubs. The album did well in the Underground of Disco
The sound on this CD issue of both albums is fabulous. It actually does sound better than the vinyl original.

Giorgio Moroder was very busy during this period of 1977-1978. He produced a single album, a double album, a live album, tracks for film soundtracks and a special suite for Donna Summer. He also produced an album for the Three Degrees, Roberta Kelly, Sparks and others as well as his solo projects. But all this work did not dilute the quality of the individual works.
This release is terrific and it is good to get both of these albums on one release.
