On The Groove Train - Volume 1 - 1975 - 1993

A cross section of the work of legendary disco producer Giorgio Moroder, ranging from the late great Donna Summer, whose career he launched, to many of his lesser-known protégés.

Moroder’s Musicland Studios in Munich produced the most popular and influential disco music outside of America in the Seventies and Eighties, and this collection will educate as well as entertain. Musicians featured include studio house band Munich Machine, Americans Marsha Hunt, Roberta Kelly and Paul Engemann, and Brit Keith Forsey. The results were successful and influential internationally and remain so today.

Includes one-off German single, ‘Carry On’ - reuniting Moroder with Donna Summer - and was the first ever track to be awarded a Grammy for Best Dance Recording.

In-depth liner note by Michael Heatley details the many different vocal and instrumental permutations Moroder used to create his music, often re-working earlier releases or themes with different artists.

Expertly remastered – superb sound - top quality reproduction. The best in the business!
