Love of Life Orchestra

Love of Life Orchestra by Peter Gordon (disco)
Released: Oct 2010
Label: DFA
The New York musician Peter Gordon was as comfortable with disco as he was classical minimalism, and on this DFA-issued retrospective he combines both into ecstatic songwriting, powerfully funky grooves and complex, colorful arrangements. Arthur Russell features on "That Hat," but the real standout here is "Beautiful Dreamer," a 1979 single featuring a French-Tunisian performance artist's eerily naive vocals over melancholic synths and horns and an indefatigable disco beat.
