Where Do I Go

...."Where do I go...follow my heart"....This is a perfect example of the disco saturation that happened during the late '70s when disco music started to wear off and became a novelty.  However, there where some great records produced during this age of absurdity and niche market productions.  Disco Spectacular Inspired by the film "Hair" is one of those exceptions.  New York producer Warren Shatz turned an intense, wide-ranging musical whirlwind, with a great deal of help from guest vocalists Evelyn "Champagne" King and unrestrained disco chanteuse Vicki Sue Robinson, who had appeared in Hair on Broadway.  I have to say that the minimal arrangements and soulful vocals actually deliver the musical message of Utopian hedonism better than the original Broadway production here.  by giving the familiar songs unforgettable new hooks on "Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In" featured here.  Also,  the guitar solo of my favorite track here "Where Do I Go?" which spotlights the amazing New York Community Choir, has a great late '70's Santana feel.  I'm loving these disco interpretations of Hair!
