2007 digitally remastered and expanded reissue of Boney M's third album, originally released in 1978, featuring two bonus tracks: 'Mary's Boy Child/Oh My Lord' and 'Dancing In The Street' . This Euro-Disco quartet were put together by producer/songwriter Frank Farian and their albums and singles were aimed directly at the dancefloors across the world. Boney M's sound featured male/female harmony vocals, a stomping Disco beat, swooping strings, funky guitar and hook-filled melodies that are still fondly remembered by millions of fans worldwide. After Boney M, Farian's next successful project was the equally popular but ill-fated Milli Vanilli. 12 tracks including 'Rasputin', 'Rivers Of Babylon' and a cover of Neil Young's 'Heart Of Gold'. Faria.
The unearthly brainchild of uber-producer Frank Farian, Boney M may be the most kitsch group in history, but they're so much fun that Nightflight To Venus--brim-full of the gloriously absurd and the outrageously inventive--is more than just a kitchen-foil-clad period piece. Their strengths were Farian's hammering disco rhythms and neat, icy production, and, most crucially, his totally deranged imagination. Deciding to write "Rasputin" is as bizarre an act as anything perpetrated by the mad monk himself; here, it sits alongside other hits and oddities with titles as good as "Never Change Lovers In The Middle Of The Night", plus a selection of bizarrely chosen covers--"King Of The Road", a deadpan take on Neil Young's "Heart Of Gold" and "Painter Man", the ultra-hip 1960s oddity by The Creation, sped up and strapped to the most brutal 4/4 beat in disco history. --Taylor Parkes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
