Consumer Guide Reviews:

Discotheque [Atlantic, 1975]
"You know what that is?" said Carola, looking up from her book in astonishment. "That's an easy-listening version of `Pick Up the Pieces.'" Almost. The disco people seem to like this, but what do they know? After all, if the Chinese hordes were to overrun our nation, Herbie would be on the racks in a month with an LP called Little Red Book, and Chou might well like that one. D+
