Son of My Father

Son of My Father

Son of My Father

Original early-1970s release by legendary disco/soundtrack producer GIORGIO MORODER. Available on CD for the first time. The LP was named after the song that became a massive 70s UK chart-topper by Chicory Tip - Moroder’s own version made the US Top 50. In essence, the album is a very much a compilation of As & B-sides from 1971 -72, with the addition of 10 bonus tracks, including single versions from the period and rare Italian versions. ‘Tears’ was sampled by DJ Shadow on his 1996 release ‘Organ Donor’ In-depth liner notes by ‘Record Collector ‘journalist Michael Heatley. Expertly remastered – superb sound - top quality reproduction. The best in the business!
