Loverde & Patrick Cowley - Die Hard Lover b/w My World Is Empty Without You (1982) - single



Frank Loverde (or simply Loverde) (1947–1990) was an American disco singer and musician active during the 1980s. Based in San Francisco,
Loverde worked with record producer Patrick Cowley on his greatest success; Die Hard Lover, released in 1982.

Patrick Joseph Cowley (October 19, 1950 - November 12, 1982) was an American disco and Hi-NRG dance music composer and recording artist. Besides Giorgio Moroder, he is often credited as a pioneer of electronic dance music

Working with Linda Imperial and her sister, Loverde made a name for himself on the San Francisco club scene as both a DJ and performer. During this time, the trio gained a record deal with Prism Records and released Iko-Iko, a record produced by Patrick Cowley and Michael Finden, in 1980. Loverde continued on the club circuit, occasionally working on studio projects, until 1982 when he was given an instrumental track by Patrick Cowley and asked to write lyrics for it. This track became "Die Hard Lover", which was recorded along with Linda Imperial and Peggy Gibbons.
The trio, now calling themselves Loverde, had huge success with the single in 1982 and became celebrities in the Hi-NRG music community.

Children Of The World feat. Ellen Foley and Jimmy Hall - The Time Is Now b/w American Medley (1980) - single



Steve Popovich and legendary Nashville producer/arranger Bill Justis have created a labor of love for our perpetual enjoyment and inspiration.
The voices of children never fail to create goose-bumps — and these Children of the World will thrill your heart. They sing with a long list of adult superstars and the selection of songs is brilliant, from "If We Only Had The Time" (what a philosophy to come from out-of-the-mouths-of-babes) and "Kids Are People, Too," to "Grandfather Song" (perfect!), to a stirring, scalp-tingling "American Medley" with Charlie Daniels.
The soul is inspired. The eyes mist over … It is time that the music of our children be heard outside of school auditoriums and classrooms. It is time for these voices to ride the media and caress the airwaves. For these are the voices of rock and flame. These are indeed the voices of our children … Children of the World.

Ellen’s duet with Jimmy Hall "The Time is Now" is, unsurprisingly, a sticky sweet ballad.
The album also contains an instrumental introduction written by Ian Hunter, a song by Abba’s Björn and Benny [Disclaimer: I fucking hate Abba], an appearance by Slovakian polka king Frank Yankovich (not related to ‘Weird’ Al) and a Father Abraham and the Smurfs song performed by Hervé Villechaize.
