the success of the first THP Orchestra release “Early Riser/Two Hot For Love”
Disco Recharge brings you the second and final instalment “Tender Is The
Night/Good To Me”. By now Ian
Guenther and Willi Morrison had established themselves as the kings of Canadian
Disco and this special edition shows why.
hot on the heels of “Two Hot For Love”, “Tender Is The Night” features the epic
“Weekend Two Step” as well as the stand out title track “Tender Is The Night”
along with a cover of the Amen Corner classic “Half As Nice”. Lead vocals are
courtesy of Phyllis and Helen Duncan A.K.A ‘The Duncan Sisters’. Released on the
infamous Butterfly label the album was a smash hit. In typical disco style the
album only featured four tracks so we have added the single edits as bonus
two features their 1979 album “Good To Me”. By this time Butterfly Records was
in the middle of its’ well documented demise and Guenther and Morrison signed to
Atlantic Records for the final album which is credited to “THP”. More electronic
than the previous albums it paved the way for Guenther and Morrison’s move into
Hi-NRG in the early 80’s. The album’s title track has recently been sampled by
Duck Sauce and their single will be releases in Spring 2013. Again only 5 tracks
long we have added the single edits as bonus tracks.
liner notes are by Alan Jones, co-author of “Saturday Night Forever: The Story
Of Disco and features an exclusive interview with Willi
is the first time on CD! Neither album has appeared on CD officially so this
restored special edition is bound to be in demand when released. Another
essential Disco Recharge release!
