2014 reissue. The year was 1978 and disco was king -- the ideal situation for the debut of many fine disco combos on the European stage. The girls from Frankfurt vocal trio Arabesque were perfectly situated to drop one of the best European disco albums of the era. Their debut LP Friday Night (aka Arabesque I) presents simple but highly melodic and catchy songs based on pure disco rhythms and straightforward arrangements from the famous Music Machine Studio instrumentalists, also of Boney M. fame. Deeply rooted in '70s Europop, Friday Night set the standard for more than a few female Eurodisco acts, and it's still an absolutely vital and energetic album. Highly popular in continental Europe, Japan, and the USSR, Friday Night was a forerunner of the mainstream success that would soon find Arabesque. This reissue is pressed on 180-gram vinyl, includes an eight-page booklet with lyrics and rare photos, and is presented in a gold foil card paper sleeve with restored original artwork. Fully remastered.
