Space Rockets

Like I've said many times before on this site, almost everything released off of Tom Moulton's Tom N' Jerry label tend to be good. The same goes for the Tom N' Jerry released On The Road Again LP by the French disco group The Rockets. This 1978 record featured a five piece group of 'space-alien' looking musicians produced by Claude Lemoine. The Tom Moulton mixed titled track, "On The Road Again" is the record's most standout out track, pushing the lines between cosmic disco, early italo, and science fiction. The song also poccess this funky down-tempo groove that can still definitely shake the dancefloor (perfect for those upcoming Halloween Dance Parties). Regardless, another classic Tom N' Jerry release from a group that was well ahead of it's time.
