Chilly ‎– I Hear You Knocking (1980)
Written by Bernt Möhrle, Brad Howell

 

Showbiz

Another record by CHILLY, the spicy German glamour Disco group leaded by producer and songwriter Bernt Möhrle. But aside from the cool and relaxed I HEAR YOU KNOCKING this album sounds mostly very kitschy or exaggerated hysterical to me. And I simply dislike the idea to merge all this Broadway-Showbiz, Rock ‘n’ Roll and Pop-History quotes with Disco-Sound … that doesn’t fits for my ears.
