Pressed on 180-gram vinyl. Arabesque's 1980 self-titled third LP (aka Marigot Bay aka Arabesque III) was an unusual musical step for the group. Disco was four or five years old and had become a little unfashionable to the general public. In retrospect, Marigot Bay is an album on which Euro disco was born - the dance rhythms and the singers' natural charms were reinforced with elements that were unusual for the pure American disco style, specifically the rock 'n' roll guitar and vocal stylings. The results are glorious: "Jingle Jangle Joe" sounds very much like a remake of Cher's 1966 hit "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" and "Take Me Don't Break Me" is a true rock 'n' roll tune with a disco beat. And one more thing: Marigot Bay was the very first album in the history of disco to have quite serious lyrics, rather than just "dance, dance, dance..." The ballad "The Only Night Was a Lonely Night" stands head and shoulders over all the other songs on the album, and was one of the most popular Arabesque tracks in USSr. This reissue is a truly deluxe one: all songs are remastered from the analog tapes, sleeve design restored on silver foil card paper, and there's an eight-page booklet with song lyrics and rare band photos. Includes exclusive bonus track "Rock'n'Roll Fan."
