A bootleg compilation of 'sexy' european tracks, the first volume of this series is really superb, and introduced me to tracks I would probably never have heard otherwise.

The CD is chock full of quirky vocal tracks, sleazy, funky organ-laden instrumentals (many, like 'Claudine 69', with porno noises over the top), and even a wonderful soundtrack bossa nova with wordless vocals.

Standout tracks for me include the aforementioned bossa (Juliette LeBlanc's 'theme from Nights of Sin'), Klaus and Uschi's 'Young Stud' (which was sampled by English band Bentley Rhythm Ace - the track that goes 'I luuuuve it!'). The Monaco Danceband's 'Snake in the grass' is also incredible - a jaunty number with flute and ludicrous vocals that never fails to raise a smile, while orchester Lou Castell's 'Miniskirt' (not the esquivel track) is a perfect sounding late 60s blues-funk instrumental, with great percussive piano, watery guitar sounds, and cool horns.

The whole disc is tremendously fun, and recalls a night at the superb 'Vampyros Lesbos' club night in NYC, which was put together by the guy who compiled this disc, DJ Franco.
