Following the success of French Disco Boogie Sounds (FVR 101CD/LP, 2015), DJ and producer Charles Maurice is back on Favorite Recordings, this time engaging a musical world tour in search of hidden productions with a touch of AOR style. The result is AOR Global Sounds, a compilation of eight forgotten and rare tracks produced between 1977 and 1982 in all parts of the globe. At the end of the '70s, many artists all over the world were deeply influenced by such AOR stars as Steely Dan and their classic Aja LP and strove for the same attention to sound production and detail; this specific West Coast style mixed with pop rock standards, soul, disco, and jazz influences. From Erik Tagg in the Netherlands and Ulla in Poland to Diane Tell in Quebec and Nohelani Cypriano in Hawaii, Charles Maurice has found a real link between these great songs and artists in their music clearly infused with this special AOR touch. Fully remastered from the original versions. A must-have for rare-groove collectors. Also includes tracks by Junior Mendes, Loredana Berte, Placa Luminosa, and Paul Hart.
Each record is protected within its record sleeve by a white vellum anti-dust sleeve.
