More slickly produced than Tania's earlier albums of bossa jazz from Europe – but a very nice record of mellow fusiony grooves, with some excellent work on the keys from Tania, and her usual bright vocals firmly in place. Jon Lucien guest stars on the track "The Rainbow Of Your Love", which is sort of a snoozer – but there's lots of other nice moments like "Deep Cove View", "Bela Be Bela", "Pour Toi", and the classic "Funky Tamborim".

Flag ... LP Mercury, 1988. Near Mint- ....
One of the most dramatically poppy albums from Yello – a set that takes their older electric groove and infuses it with a bit more theatrics and dancefloor-styled rhythms! Flag's really the record that probably sums up the mainstream vision of Yello the best – that image of mustachioed Europeans acting goofy in cleverly cartoony music videos, while referencing an imagined nostalgia in definite 80s trappings, and avoiding any real direct attempt at songwriting. Yet amidst the showiness and oddball characters, the core Yello sound is still at the bottom of the mix – lost a bit, to be sure, but still more compelling and longer-lasting than much other electric pop spawned by their generation. Titles include "Tied Up In Red", "Blazing Saddles", "The Race", "Otto Di Cantania", "Tied Up", and "3rd Of June". LP, Vinyl record album
