Festival - Disco Evita
One of many projects by Russian-born disco royalty Boris Midney (see also Beautiful Bend, USA-European Connection and others), this was the result of Robert Stigwood's idea for Boris to `disco-fy' the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. I must say I grew up on the original 70s soundtrack (which probably explains a lot) so it's quite bizarre to hear a disco spin on these songs. Fabulous disco orchestrations though. The two sides of the album were continuous mixes:
1. Buenos Aires (9:19)/I'd Be Surprisingly Good For You (4:00)/Don't Cry For Me Argentina (4:57)
2. High Flying Adored (4:34)/Rainbow High (6:02)/She Is A Diamond (2:19)/Eva's Theme (Lady Woman) (5:47)
3. Bonus track: Don't Cry For Me Argentina (Single Version) (3:49)
Eva's Theme (Lady Woman) is Midney's own composition.
So CHRISTIAN DIOR me
