PATRICK HERNANDEZ will be remembered for one of the
most iconic Eurodisco anthems of the seventies. 1978's hypnotic ‘Born to Be
Alive’ reached the top ten all over Europe (including number 10 in the UK) and
eventually made number 16 on the American pop chart after it had topped the
charts in France, Austria, New Zealand, Norway and Sweden.
The song is the centrepiece of its parent album of
the same name which makes its international CD debut on Cherry Pop. The title
song is featured here in three mixes.
Hernandez is a Frenchman of Spanish, Austrian and
Italian heritage. On a historical note, Madonna performed with Hernandez as a
dancer early in her career before achieving superstardom.
BORN TO BE ALIVE also features the
follow up hits ‘Back To Boogie’ which made the Dutch charts, and ‘Disco Queen’
which became a Belgian hit and US Disco charter.
BORN TO BE ALIVE is complete with liner notes and bonus tracks. It is essential listening
for all Hi-NRG, Disco and seventies Pop fans out there!
