claude mono vs. the bob crewe generation

Claude Mono vs. The Bob Crewe Generation – is a short reconstruction mix of performances on the Barbarella Original Soundtrack. Possibly Claude’s all-time favourite 2am club mix – and a highlight at the Silent Disco – and I made it!!! – slow start but go with it….

“Bob Crewe was the most incredibly handsome man I had ever met,” – ’60s Pop singer Diane Renay. “He exuded talent, culture and sexuality . . . people just seemed to gather around him and follow him wherever he went. When he walked into a room, his presence was like a magnet . . . you know how kids in elementary school are often asked to write a paper about the most unforgettable character they have ever met? Well, Bob Crewe was it for me.”
