peter gordon and his love of life orchestra are testament to the incredible musical innovations happening in new york city in the late 1970s. those two compositions, underpinned with disco and gilded with noisy guitar bursts, hanging piano chords and saxophone wails, exhibit not only gordon's kaleidoscopic vision as a musician, but his precision as a producer and composer. featuring avant-experimentalists and downtown legends david byrne and arto lindsay as well as love of life orchestra cofounders gordon and david van tieghem, the tracks shine a light on the work of an artist whose influence on dance music is recognizable more than three decades later.
