Cover artwork from 'Love's In You, Love's In Me' (1978) by Giorgio & Chris. Produced by Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte.
Love Now, Hurt Later
Although the practical demands of disco dictated a certain speed and pattern to the rhythm, Moroder and Bellotte tried hard to push back these limitations. This innovation can be heard in the robot rock'n'roll of Donna Summer's 'The Wanderer' and on the 'Love's In You, Love's In Me' album with one particular track: 'Love Now, Hurt Later' which, within its disco constraints, created a light boogie-woogie backing - with a vocoder vocal-style preceding a similar effect on ELO's 'The Diary Of Horace Wimp' by one year.
The album's other notable feature is the presence of vocalist and collaborator, Chris Bennett who would provide the lyrics for many of Moroder's recordings (circa 1979/1980) as well as co-writing and singing the vocal on the 'Theme From Midnight Express'.
supposed debut was previously on Munich Machine's 'A Whiter Shade Of Pale'
album (which clearly stated 'Introducing Chris Bennett' on the cover).
In fact this album was preceded two years earlier by a 1976 Moroder/Bellotte
novelty single about a DJ called 'Disco Man'.
