5.0 out of 5 stars Giorgio Moroder produced album for the Three Degrees, 4 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Dimensions (Audio CD)
After a successful period in the early 70s the Three Degrees went through a short lull in their career. This album from 1978 brought the girls back to chart success.
This was largely thanks to the addition of production by Italian producer Giorgio Moroder who had recorded his own solo albums and produced and arranged for other artists such as Donna Summer, Munich Machine, and Roberta Kelly.
The trademark production by Moroder is all over this album with hard driving disco beats and heavy synthesiser sounds. There are some great ballads too and the CD version is very good with the addition of the extended 12" mixes of the single releases added as bonus tracks.
Although Moroder had been more associated with a more underground and creative genre of Euro disco he had become more commercial with catchy disco pop through the success with Donna Summer.
This album has a heavy disco pop feel to it but it is a quality production of pop music.
This is the best album by the Three Degrees for me and I love the feel of the songs and the production.
