Grinning from ear to ear

I suppose this is a bit of a departure from art rock (see previous post) but I can't hide my disco heritage. I'm actually treating this post as an attempted exorcism because this tune has been burrowing around my brain for weeks like some low-slung funky worm!

You may recognise the dude above as the crooner who crapped on about tying some bow around a tree but, make no mistake, in his one shot at dancefloor glory Tony Orlando struck gold. Don't Let Go is a mid-tempo grinder with all of our favourite disco elements in place - the skippy beats, insistent bass, classy strings and that analogue synth - it just falls on the right side of cheese.
