Cerrone

Great French disco producer. First album gave disco classic "Love in C Minor"; one of the first disco LPs to fill one side of a record with an extended version of just one song. This track is co-written by Alec R. Costandinos. Listen for the beat - as the 1970's went on, this sound became characteristic of European disco records. First album also contains a cover version of "Black is black" (also covered by La Belle Epoque) and another Costandinos song, "Midnight lady". "Love in C minor" and "Midnight lady" were later covered by Frankie Crocker's Heart and Soul Orchestra.

"Cerrone's paradise" continues in the style of "Love in C minor" - perhaps it was too similar, as the album didn't sell as well. This album also includes the disco classic "Take me", co-written by Alain Wisniak.

The LP "Supernature" yielded the international disco hit title track; a different style to the first two albums, it quickly became a disco classic and was as always very popular in Europe. Side B of this album was more typical Cerrone sounding disco, featuring "Love is here".

"Golden Touch" LP was another studio recorded album of the late 1970's and yielded another classic dance track, "Je suis music". This album also includes the good-groove "Music of life". "Rocket in the pocket" begins to show Cerrone's movement away from disco into a more rock-flavoured style of music.

His fifth album showed ever more a move away from disco and towards rock with the A-side of the LP, but the b-side faithfully gives "Living on love" to his disco fans. Also listen for "Not too shabby".

Further albums followed in the 1980's, including "Cerrone IX" with "Club Underworld". Cerrone worked with other disco artists in the 1970's, including Don Ray and Cristal ("Phonic").
