- gruppo sportivo: the secret of success
(2011, cd, nl, prcd2011011)
Hans Vandenburg's Gruppo Sportivo made name in the late seventies as a fun rock band. Everybody should have their first two albums.
One of these included a track called 'Superman', and it incorporated Zappa's 'Take Your Clothes Off'.
Gruppo Sportivo still exists, and the band released a new album recently: "The Secret Of Success". The formula is still there: guitar orientated pop songs, female vocalists,...
It's not the Gruppo Sportive from the first albums as it lacks the fun element, but it's still an okay album.
And, yes, this is the same Hans Vandenburg that did some concerts as The Rubbers Of Prevention...
