      This is an exquisite and sadly rare piece of vintage 80's synth-noir disco, that renders many of its contemporaries mere plastic. Very much an aesthetic template on which the Eurythmics based their more comercially viable, but no less excellent early hits. French model Ronny affects a Germanic-tinged vocal atop an intense, melancholic widesreen production. Side B boasts the very Ultravox-ish offering "Blue Cabaret", a bittersweet homage to Marlene Deitrich with darkly gorgeous lyrics and a true sense of stage. Finally, a cover of Sly Stone's funk number "If You Want Me To Stay" is given a smarmy, Brian Ferry piano bar treatment. Immeasureable light and shade, and completely classic.
