The Michael Zager Band - Private Stock Vinyl Album

"Let's All Chant" is a song written by Michael Zager and Alvin Fields and performed by the Michael Zager Band. It was originally an idea suggested by the former head of A&R Jerry Love after visiting clubs in New York and seeing people endlessly chanting "Ooh-ah, Ooh-ah". Even if he was first embarrassed when Love convinced him to write a song upon these chants, Zager accepted the proposal and eventually co-wrote a song with his partner Alvin Fields. The opening track and lead single from the group's eponymous album, "Let's All Chant" was released as a single in December 1977, with the track "Love Express" as a B-side, and charted worldwide in 1978. An unexpected smash hit, the single reached number one on the disco chart for one week and crossed over to the Soul Singles chart, where it peaked at number 15, and to the Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at number 36. In Europe, the single managed to reach the top 10 in several countries, including in the UK, in Ireland and in France. It eventually sold five million copies worldwide.Recognizable by both its vocal hooks and its classical section, which is featured in the middle of the song, "Let's All Chant" was well received by critics, who praised its musical arrangement and its catchiness. Most of them have regarded the song as a classic of the disco era. It also became a turning point in Michael Zager career. As well as being used in countless TV advertisings and movies, it became an influential dance song which has been extensively covered or remixed by numerous artists and has been interpolated or sampled in many other tracks.

This is a 45 RPM 12" Long Playing Album with each side going over 7 minutes of play time. Both the album cover and the vinyl album are in great condition. The inner sleeve is the original generic sleeve that came with the album.
