VARIOUS ARTISTS - HOOKED ON CLASSICS (3CD SET)

In 1981, Australian record producer Don Reedman joined forces with Jeff Jarratt and the world famous Hooked On Classics series was born.

The pair recruited Louis Clark (who had previously worked with Electric Light Orchestra) to arrange a collection of instantly recognizable Classical music tunes, which were played as medleys by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, with Clark himself conducting. The medleys were laid over a continuous disco beat, resulting in an irresistibly catchy series of highly listenable Classical pieces with a contemporary ‘hook’.
