Reviewed by Steve Best

In a whirl of glitterballs, flares and big hair, The Company emerge blinking from the '70s -and decide they prefer life there! Quite simply gloriously evocative of those heady days, this is deftly done, with tongue firmly in cheek and a big smile on the face, whilst able to make a spiritual point at the same time. With names like Tadpole Lowenbad (bass), Freaky O'Neill (keyboards) and Rockafella on rhythm guitar, you have to hand it to these guys, who, judging by the cover shots, appear to have walked straight out of a Starsky & Hutch episode. Musically we have styles ranging through Chic ("Ooh C'mon"), Funkadelic meets James Brown ("Boogie Machine"), Gloria Gaynor ("You Turn My World Around"), Earth, Wind And Fire ("International"), Kool And The Gang ("All Around The World") and Donna Summer ("Send Me Your Love"). In addition, "Will You Be There?" could easily be the answer - some 20 years later -to Blondie's "Call Me". There's even an appearance by the Boogie Police, who advise: "Give up or get down." As for me, I'll plump for the latter. Funktastic!
