  • Jungle Love (UK ZE/Island) 1979 

Blondie’s Chris Stein produced this French quartet’s album in New York; Island Records chief Chris Blackwell mixed the tapes in the Bahamas and released the LP in England — all for no audible reason. While the cool ambience of relaxed disco (complete with a female vocal trio and Cristina guesting on one track) may be soothing to tired dancers, the music is too bland to avoid instant forgettability, despite the suave French vocals.
