Panther De Lo Disco

Here is a funky version of Henry Mancini's "Give Me Some Mo!" by Guy De Lo and His Orchestra from the hard-to-find disco-themed album The Pink Panther Disco Star. As you might imagine, this record, which was released in 1978, features disco renditions of Pink Panther themed compositions that were originally written by Mancini. Often times these cleverly themed concept albums are nothing more than good ideas that lack execution and quality, however Guy Del Lo was able to put together a solid group of funky renditions that have the ability to stand on their own as well-crafted disco productions. I'm not here to say that every track on the record is stellar, however great instrumental cuts like "Give Me Some Mo !" and "The Pink Panther (Discostar)" make the very unique album worth adding to any music collector's wish list. It's nice to see that a concept record like this, when done well, can produce some good music. Enjoy!

This sounds like a dance remix using the original soundtrack recording. Guy De Lo? No wonder this was never released in the USA. A bit of copyright infringement here, I think. It's still great.
