It really is 35 years old !!! I fished it out this afternoon to play to the kids fot the first time.... Disco-tastic :lol: The producer Frank Farian must have made zillions, Brown Girl in the Ring, Painter man, Rasputin and the absolute killer track Rivers of Babylon! I'd forgotten how good the drumming is on the album, real dance floor 4/4 stuff. And not a computer in sight.

How old are your kids?
There's nothing, nothing, more embarrasing than dad getting his retrogrroove on!
But maybe that was your aim. :mrgreen:

My daughter just came in with a friend to find her dad giving it some to this...

Now that i didn't know! When you say sampled, did another drummer play the same 'track' or was it lifted i.e the same drum track reused?
