This instrumental album should really be of interest for fans of Giorgio Moroder and his group of studio workers in the early 1980s. I am a big fan of the instrumental film and TV music of Moroder, Harold Faltermeyer, Sylvester Levay and Keith Forsey, and on this album there are songs by all four. All of them (minus Moroder) are also performers here, along with Helen St. John on the piano. She is of course most known for performing Moroder's Love Theme from Flashdance. This album starts with three rather cheesy tunes which goes well into Richard Clayderman and Burt Bacharach territory, but from track 4, Faltermeyer's uptempo Petite Romance, the songs are getting more interesting, and side two of the album features fine songs all the way through. Some sounds from the 1982 Moroder soundtrack Cat People can be heard in the soundscape, on an album which surely must be called a product of its time. Let's hope a CD version with liner notes appears in the future, it had been interesting to know how the album came about, and how the different musicians worked in the studio.
