CHICORY TIP MEGAMIX
(Giorgio Moroder / Pete Bellotte / Michael Holm / Zack Laurence / J Weston)




Origin:
Unreleased 12 inch single

The Chicory Tip Megamix was put together in 1978 and featured five of their
most commercial singles - Son Of My Father, Cigarettes Women And Wine,
Survivor, Good Grief Christina and What's Your Name.

The brief was to capture the energy of the band and the catchiness of the choruses
on all the songs together with the moog synthesizer sound which became their
trademark. It was ironic that none of the four members of the band featured a
keyboard until they got the success with "Son Of My Father."

To cram the essence of the five songs in under 8 minutes and 30 seconds was
never easy, and without the use of the master tapes everything had to be carefully
edited using the finished records. With just one laser zap effect on the song being
added it was important to keep the songs very much as they were when they came
out as singles in their own right, so each song has been edited down and spliced
together to match in the most comfortable and natural way - effectively more a
Medley than a Megamix in fact.
