Peter Nero Break

Peter Nero was one of those easy listening/lounge guys who made a slew of cover albums in the 1960’s and 1970’s. He’s been sampled before but has managed to stay mostly under the radar in comparison to dudes like James Last or Ferrante & Teicher. Like many of the cover artists from the 1960’s, they were forced to update their sound when Disco hit. Nero is no exception with his album “Disco, Dance, and Love Themes of the 70‘s”.

The album has a lot of familiar cuts like Barry White’s “Love’s Theme“, The Stories’ “Brother Louie“, and Barry DeVorzon’s “Young & Restless Theme“. The standout cut is a cover of Stevie Wonder‘s “Superstition“. The intro has a dope drum break similiar to the original. Check it out.
