Alain Band/Hot City Simphony – Hold Up (1977)

The B side of the Alain Band 7” record features a conventional piece of instrumental disco, with drums and horns.

Louis Chedid, the composer, remade Hold Up in 1984, but it’s honestly not as good as the original one. A much better remake was recently done from samples off this 1984 track by the great LoSoul:

Louis Chedid – Hold Up (LoSoul Re-Edit) (2010)

It also appears that a very first version of this tune exists, dating back from 1974: I really don’t know whether it’s the same as the 1977 one.

    Brilliant. What we also need is the Brigade Mondaine films on dvd, all 3 of them.
