Album Notes and Credits

Producer: Sandy Linzer.
Reissue producer: John Snyder.
Digitally remastered by Joe Lopes (1988 RCA Studios, New York, New York).
20 years before the neo-swing craze, songwriters August Darnell and Stony Browder conceived this cinematic disco recreation of a '30s/ '40s nightclub floor show, complete with Latin rhythms worthy of Xavier Cugat and Carmen Miranda. The two had a secret weapon in the considerable vocal abilities of singer Cory Daye, who could handle all their slithery slighty-out-of-tune melodies (and lyrics) in an ingratiating "trouper" style. Add to the mix the nimble marimba work of "Sugarcoated" Andy Hernandez and you have what was, in retrospect, a truly class act to hit the 1976 charts and a crowning achievement of the disco era.
Actually the word-drunk DR. BUZZARD harks back not so much to Busby Berkeley extravaganzas as to the hip camaraderie of the vocalese trio Lambert, Hendricks & Ross, especially in the way two male principals prepare the way for a dazzling leading lady to lead the conga line in finger-poppin' style.
