Classic 60's pop
Shmuel | Jerusalem Israel | 05/30/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In fact the second disc, As though it were a movie, sounds as if it could have been released yesterday, it doesn't sound at all dated as do some of his contempories listening to them 35 years later. As opposed to all the peace and love trippy music that most of the artists at the time seemed to be involved with Sarstedt wrote about life with all its bitter sweetness. The songs on this album are as strong and as original as any you are likely to find anywhere. He spices his sharp insights on life with a great sense of humour and varied musical styles, though all pop/folk/rock, excelently produced by Ray Singer (whoever he may be!)The first disc contains the original "Where do you go to my lovely" and the second disc has as a bonus track the great "Frozen orange juice", one of my favourite pop songs from that period. I have another vinyl disc of Sarstedt called PS which is also very good, it's not listed here. It contains the song Beirut. I remember when I bought it I had a record player that let you repeat the record and I remember just letting side one play over and over again."

"My parents had these record albums when I was a kid in the 1970s. I'm loving listening to the songs again, and hearing new things. It's a very "orchestral" approach to pop music, with slightly subversive lyrics. I wonder whatever happened to Peter . . ."
