Dance Discotheque Dance

Moon River Monkey
Dance Discotheque Dance
Go-Go-Go to 16 Great Tunes
Pricewise 4006

Curious LP from a budget label. Each side features eight tunes with the next track playing the instant the preceding song finishes. All of the tunes seem to have been recorded by the same session group. The music is laid over a continual crowd noise, to somehow suggest that the music is being recorded live.

For your money you get pleasant cheesy music and the blurry photos of adult models on the cover dancing on strips of aluminum foil.

A Clockwork Orange - Music From The Movie

Singing In The Rain & Title Music For The Funeral Of Queen Mary
Music From The Movie A Clockwork Orange
Pickwick SPC 3302

There are a number of odd "electronic" tracks on this album, some performed by Monte Cross. These are sandwiched between straight orchestrated tracks that may more closely mimic the "originals".

I'll just say that this album is good quirky fun and I recommend grabbing a copy if someone was kind enough to leave a copy for you in the discount bin.
