THP Orchestra

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

THP Orchestra - Two Hot For Love! Two Hot For Love!
Disco New - LP FLY 005 Butterfly
Sealed 1977 Original, Cut Out Hole. "Two Hot For Love!, THP's First LP, Was Generally Ignored By Radio But Gave The Eurodisco Outfit A Small But Enthusiastic Club Following. DJs Were Especially Fond Of The Title Song, Which Lasts Almost 16 Minutes And Takes Up All Of Side One. Boasting A Sweaty, Intoxicating Performance By Singer Barbara Fry, "Two Hot For Love!" Is An Orchestral Eurodisco Masterpiece. Side Two, Meanwhile, Is Devoted To Instrumentals, The Strongest Of Which Is An Arrangement Of Luis Bonfa's "Manha De Carnival." The Bonfa Standard Is Generally Associated With Brazilian Pop-Jazz And Bossa Nova, Although It Works Surprisingly Well In A Eurodisco Setting. The Other Instrumentals On Side Two (Including The Dramatic "Early Riser" And The Playful "Crazy Crazy") Are Pleasant, If Unremarkable. Produced By THP Leaders Ian Guenther And Willi Morrison, This Decent-To-Excellent LP Isn't For The Casual Disco Fan But Is Worth Hearing If You're A Seasoned Disco Addict." - Alex Henderson, Al Music Guide... more details
 
THP Orchestra - Tender Is The Night Tender Is The Night
Disco New - LP FLY 014 Butterfly
Sealed 1978 Original. “In The 1980s, Dance-Pop Went Totally High-Tech -- Rather Than Hire A Lot Of Musicians, A Producer Could Easily Act As A One-Man (Or One-Woman) Band And Program All Of The Synthesizers, Sequencers, And Drum Machines Himself/Herself. That Was A Major Departure From The Late '70s, When Disco Producers Typically Used A Lot Of Musicians And Favored Lavish String And Horn Arrangements. The THP Orchestra Was An Orchestra In The True Sense Of The Word -- At Least In The Beginning. On THP's Second Album, Tender Is The Night, Producers Ian Guenther And Willi Morrison Oversee A Lineup That Includes Vocalists Phyllis And Helen Duncan, A Rhythm Section, Five Horn Players (Including Canadian Jazz Trombonist Ian Mcdougall), And No Less Than Ten String Players. That Didn't Impress Radio Djs, Who Ignored The LP. But In Dance Clubs, Tender Is The Night Was A Hit. Club Jocks Who Favored The European Disco Sound Were Quick To Play Exuberant, Ultra Danceable Numbers That Range From The Clever "Weekend Two Step" To The Lush Title Song And The Funky, If Mechanical, "Music Is All You Need." The Glossy "Half As Nice" Is Much Too Sugary And Campy For Its Own Good, Although The Other Songs Are Decent. Like THP's First Record, Two Hot For Love, This LP Isn't Recommended To Those Who Have Only A Casual Interest In Late-'70s Eurodisco. But It's Worth Having In Your Collection If You're A Serious Fan Of This Type Of Music.” - Alex Henderson, AMG... more details
