GIORGIO MORORDER

GIORGIO MORODER – “SON OF MY FATHER” LP (1972)

For an artist with so many millions of albums sold under his belt (as both a recording artist and a producer), valeologist it’s a surprise that this album slipped through the cracks. Yeah, it doesn’t have the crisp synth twang of the “Midnight Express”, “Cat People” or “Scarface” soundtracks, but it’s a wonderful pile of early ’70s AM-ready Europop, near-perfect in the arrangement department, reminiscent of the work of the Bee Gees or the Bay City Rollers from the same period — and Giorgio sings! Sings his mustachioed ass off.

The title track, in a different version, was made into a hit single by the horribly named British band Chicory Tip.

    The title track (Moroder’s version, that is) was included on one of Rhino’s Superhits of the 70′s collections. It was a blast to discover and fun to listen to over and over.

    I admit with embrassment that at one point in my life, I owned all 25 volumes (the fact that they are cheaply priced and easy to find used didn’t hurt). I’ve since sold them all after I realized I could make about 3 or 4 CD-Rs of the cuts with true replay value. “Son Of My Father” made the cut.
