"Frank Sinatra" was used very effectively on Danny Tenaglia's Global Underground mix "010: Athens"...

Put this old favorite on today and I have to confess the A side tracks still amaze me. After the brief intro, Frank Sinatra, The Grey Area and 1982 are three top notch electroclash classics with ballsy attitude and funny vocals. Miss Kittin has never sounded this entertaining again, while the catchy and popish melody on 1982 earned it heavy radio and club rotation. Frank Sinatra, quite probably the duo's most known tune ever, has badd ass production and Miss Kittin crushing your ego with arrogant and inimitable vocals.
The B side I don't fancy that much since, after all, I am not that big of an electro head. Gratin Dauphinois is a straight up instrumental electro number, and despite a tremendous and pumelling bass line, on a whole I don't recall playing it too much. In comparison to the pure fun displayed throughout the A side, this is too sudden of a change in mood and sound. The Gigolo Outro is not that different from the Gigolo Intro, while the last bonus track, Dirty Talk, is back on track, though way too short. A very playful and easily accessible melody with Miss Kittin's vocals absolutely dominating here. Unfortunately, it all comes to an end way too soon.
Overall, this is a good one, though I would recommend getting their debut album "First" before this any day of the week. It contains two of the best tracks from this EP (Frank Sinatra and 1982), as well as two fistfulls of similar tunes. The influence of this should not be underrated though, as I seriously doubt these two would have ever gotten the recognition they did if it weren't for Gigolo who gave them a chance. Good start to what would soon become an internationally recognized and well respected musical partnership.

agreed - a classic , i don`t think the strange attraction , that Miss Kittin`s voice surely has , comes across better than on this release . People , who got the first pressings from early GIGOLO 12"es should hold on to them - they will get very expensive one day - Arnold Schwarzenegger won a trial , not to use his picture on the covers of the early GIGOLO records - that`s why there is Sid Vicious`s picture on the Gigolo records now ..

on some recent pressings they printed 'Gigolo 09' on the label, which is wrong. the font is also thinner. besides; mine has a yellow cover instead of a brown one, with an ean-code-label 0718752951166

dirty talk is a much too short cover of the italo-disco-smasher by Klein&Mbo. Imho the track where Miss Kittin's strange voice sounds best.
