 - Il Assassino

  • Adrian Gurvitz

    Il Assassino LP (1980)

    Jet Records

This is the type of stuff that's been big in Japan for years but Westerners are just finally realizing what a glorious guilty pleasure this slick early 80s disco pop rock really is.  Adrian Gurvitz has a few worth checking out in the yacht rock vein, but this album is his best with the Leo Sayer / Bee Gee-esque midtempo rompers "Borrowed Beauty," and "New World." Also check the stereo store speaker test instrumental "Hit Man" slathered in all its 80s analogue synth glory.  A sound that marries the future synth with the dry disco drums (eff a gated snare!).
