Eruption: Eruption [Ariola America, 1978]
From Frank Farian, creator of Boney M.: sharp disco interpretations of "I Can't Stand the Rain" and "I'll Take You There" on a danceable/listenable first side, a version of "The Way We Were" that would turn Rasputin into a Barbra Streisand fan, and "Party, Party," the poopiest song ever on that time-honored theme.
