Download the Gorgio Moroder Collection

Spotted over at my former colleague and good friend Bfred’s blog, the definitive Gorgio Moroder collection. The fact that he compiled and uploaded this right now is rather convenient, considering I’m in the middle of reading And Party Every Day, a new book about Casablanca Records, who Moroder recorded and produced artists for.

Says Brendan,

It’s hard to imagine a time when synthesizers didn’t dominate popular music, but in the early 1970s, anything beyond acoustic was a pretty avant-garde act. Producer/singer/songwriter Giorgio Moroder was at the forefront of making electro go pop, through his innovative work in disco, pop, and film scores.

Raised in a German-speaking part of Northern Italy, Giorgio made his career in Germany’s music scene in the late ’60s when krautrock artists had started sprinkling synths into their traditional rock formulas. In 1976, he hit it big with Donna Summer’s “Love To Love You Baby,” a funky, orgasmic club anthem that turned the unknown singer into the definitive artist of the disco era. A year later, Summer, Giorgio and longtime partner Pete Bellotte released “I Feel Love,” a hard-hitting electronic disco record that is often credited as the missing link between acoustic disco and modern house music. Other German electro artists like Kraftwerk might have been more musically radical, but Giorgio brought the synthetic revolution to the dance clubs and pop radio before anyone else. He would go on to compose a string of hugely successful soundtracks, from 1978’s Midnight Express to 1983’s Scarface, phasing out classical-style scores in favor of futuristic sounds that would dominate the ’80s. I collected over 25 of my favorite Giorgio songs for the latest Uggh…Nice Watch compilation…

  8. Scurviest Sea Dog for my naughty terrier. Our almost new home computer started making a terrible grinding noise on Sturday evening, so I will not be able to post much until it is fixed. Right now I am at work.

  9. I’ve been looking for a post like this for an age

  10. How glorious – it’s nice to see a little something light and green at this time of year, when everything is gearing itself towards stodge and fat-laden foods. I will definitely give this a go, except I might change the cheese for a Wensleydale or something sharp because I am not a blue cheese person! I will grab some salad leaves soon and get making this salad

  11. Richard Cranium | I stopped reading when I saw “Romney killed my wife” and you accusing the Obama campaign of putting out this ad. Priorities USA Action put out the ad so your intellectual honesty is sorely lacking. The campaign had nothing to do with the ad and is prohibited by law to coordinating with SuperPACs – whether to approve or even request an ad be taken down. Try insight, not incite.

  12.

    You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation however I to find this topic to be really one thing which I feel I might never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very broad for me. I’m having a look ahead on your next post, I will try to get the grasp of it!
