From the Chappell library music label collection Dance and Mood Music, this album from Pierre Dutour crams in the best grooves in vogue at the bridge of the late 60s, early 70s. Pop, beat, jerk, rhythm’n’blues and funk lead the way on this hit-filled, honed for the dance-floor offering. With help from his trusty accomplice Jack Arel, another influential figure in the European library music world, Pierre Dutour adopts a sound and production style boldly drawing from England and the USA (the superb “Tracking”, veritable homage to the Temptations’ first foray into psyche/funk; “Sunset” which has clearly learnt all it knows from Burt Bacharach): around the all out holy trinity of bass, drums and guitar, a burning brass section installs itself along with an indispensable, erupting Hammond organ, testament to the rising temperature (the fabulous and forever compiled ”Following You” which makes a showing as the ultimate jerk.) Actively sought out by every rare groove and mod sounds collector going, this record, like all fruits produced by the Arel-Dutour tandem, holds a solid place in the great nebulous of library music, with guaranteed carefully crafted compositions, a quality production ripe with truly intense sensations. The true soundtrack to the swingin’ sixties!
