BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1981
Re-Rip Newly Remastered!
Originally I posted this one on March 29, 2011. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon Super 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!
Take the songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein and the musical The Sound Of Music, mix it all together give it a disco beat and you’ve got “The (Disco) Sound Of Music by Show-Stoppers ’81.
It’s been a mystery as to who actually sings the lead vocals on this track is it it Julie Andrews? All clues lead to Sarah Brightman being the singer. Clue #1 the track was produced by Jeff Calvert who also produced Brightman’s 1979 single “I Lost My Heart To A Starship Trooper”. Clue #2 according to the 1989 UK TV series “This Is Your Life” it was revealed that Sarah Brightman did actually record the vocals for “The (Disco) Sound Of Music”. Mystery solved.
Just for fun I also put together a custom picture sleeve. Enjoy!
