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.
