Overview

Released in 1977, Summernights is the Hong Kong and Southeast Asian issue of the band's punchy Golden Girls LP, an album which again saw the band in the charts, a stellar feat for an act that history has essentially relegated to the one-hit-wonder heap. Although Silver Convention's star power had cooled by this time, their producers Michael Kunze and Sylvester Levay still managed to pepper this set with sonic nuggets -- hinging string-driven disco to shots of deeper funk in classic Euro-disco style, most notably here across "Hotshot" and "Wolfchild." Shuffled in beside these, of course, are the band's lite-whipped numbers: "Telegram," which owes more to the influence of ABBA than countryman Giorgio Moroder; "Disco Ball," a nice rehash of "Save Me"; and the anthemic title track, which is an edgy keynote. Slick with the sheen that surrounded the Euro-disco movement, Silver Convention again successfully delivered what they promised. And while they may have often been short on substance, they were never far out of style. [In 2015, Summernights was reissued in a Remastered & Expanded Edition featuring two bonus tracks: the single version of "Telegram" and 12" disco version of "Ain't It Like a Hollywood Movie."]
