I knew about it from going to the Disco. It is an album that I never thought would ever get issued on CD. It's been a long time coming.
The likes of BBC radio one did not favour disco records on their playlists. Despite playing a few Disco tracks briefly from time to time, they seemed to champion Rock and Punk Rock records or commercially catchy Disco flavoured pop.
Giorgio Moroder is an Italian record producer, songwriter and performer. He had worked in Europe for many years and based himself in Germany. When in Munich he started his own record label called Oasis Records, which several years later became a subdivision of Casablanca Records.
He often worked with lyricist Pete Bellotte. Moroder recorded as a solo artist as well as producing for other people.
He had been very successful and developed a unique style that gradually moved more towards synthesisers and the Euro Disco sound.
Two years before this album he had teamed up with Bellotte to produce a debut album for Donna Summer in Europe only. (The lady of the night) This was a massive success in Europe but not the released in the America or the UK. The team then moved to America to produce the next album (love to love you baby) which was an incredibly original album success the world over.
At this stage he continues to produce for Donna Summer but in 1976 he records this solo album.
It is not as good as his later solo works but it is an interesting release.
The album is quite dated now by its 70s Euro Disco atmosphere.Read more ›
the bonus stuff was a nice extra .
In all if your a disco nut or just some one into the history of dance music this is a good start and the price wont break the bank , and the remastered cd sound is top notch .
I Love it but then again I am A HUGE Giorgio Moroder fan.

It's not Moody Blues, but it's entirely Giorgio Moroder. Listen close, and you may notice a riff comparison between this and his From Here To Eternity.
1. "Knights In White Satin"...It's a remake of The Moody Blues 1967 & ESP. their HUGE 1972 classic. Giorgio's version begins w/ the letter "K" & it contains the SAME lyrics as The Moody Blues version, to a slow disco beat. It's rather strange, but I still love it. It mixes very well w/ "Love To Love You Baby" by Donna Summer, as the follow-up song, right after "Knights".
2. "In The Middle Of The Knight"...This song was written By Giorgio Moroder & Pete Bellotte. It is EXTREMELY SIMILAR to "Knights In White Satin". The music, esp. w/ the VIOLINS is really great & there AREN'T too many vocals, here. I love this MIDDLE PART of the "KNIGHTS" sequence, very much.
3. "Knights In White Satin"...Just the continuation of Songs 1 & 2. This is version that I was the MOST familiar with.
4. "Oh, L'amour"...This song is okay.
5. "Sooner Or Later"...NOT to be confused w/ The Grass Roots 1971 hit single of the SAME name. This song has the SLOWEST beat, on this album. It also has some real sexy lyrics. I like this tune, quite a lot.
6. "I Wanna Funk With You Tonite"...The other big dance classic from 1976. It's very danceable & it also contains some sexy & suggestive lyrics. It's a very good song. I can recall, quite often, when Donna Summer's song "Try Me, I Know, We Can Make It" would follow, right AFTER the MIX.
7. "Let The Music Play" (Single version A-side)...I remembered this song, somewhat & I like it quite well. I feel that THIS song SHOULD have been more of a WELL KNOWN dance hit.
8. "Oh, L'amour" (Single version B-side)...Same opinion as #4 above.
9. "I Wanna Funk With You Tonite" (Single version A-side)...Same opinion as #6 above.
10. "Knights In White Satin" (Single version B-side)...Same opinions as #1 & #3 above.
Now that I'm done completing this review, I want to say that this CD is HIGHLY recommended. I'm quite happy that I found THIS CD, in it's entirety.
