Theo Vaness - Theo Vaness

posted by on April 18 at 14:38 PM

You might remember this old post about Madleen Kane. I talked a little bit about her producers, Lana and Paul Sebastian.

Well here’s another beaut by the same producers, the self-titled album by Theo Vaness. Not only did they recruit help from Motown string arranger Paul Riser, and synth help from ex-Russian Boris Midney, but the album is almost entirely mixed to perfection by Legendary disco drummer, DJ, and soon-to-be house-music producer Francois Kevorkian (Kraftwerk, Walter Gibbons, Paradise Garage…).

Theo Vaness was a dutch disco singer who’s biggest hit was the gay anthem “As Long as It’s Love.” But this is my favorite by him. It includes the dance-floor fillers, “Magic Dancer” and “Thank God There’s Music.”

If you’re into steamy sexy disco of the slightly gay kind, this out-of-print album is definitely for you.

Check out some samples at my blog.

You and I have very different taste in music Terry, but it's nice to read someone that shares my proclivities for obessing over the deatails of what-we-like-about-what-we-like.

I love that you write about the SOUND of a record, and the lives of the people behind those sounds... so refreshing to read compared to so much music journalism that doesn't at all convince me the author even likes music.

Keep it up!
