Talpro Productions Inc.

3 Tracks: 1) Let's Make Love in Public Places
2) Let Me Be Your Fantasy
3) The Football Stadium
"Penthouse presents pulsating Disco and romantic sounds for loving and dancing", and with that, Penthouse went from pornographic country and entered the Disco scene in 1978. The record contains 3 tracks, produced by Mitchell H. Farber, recorded and mixed at RCA studios in New York. Engineer was Pat Martin, and the band was Cliff Carter on keys and synth, Hiram Bullock on guitar, Neil Jason on bass, Andy Newmark on drums, Sam Figueroa and Ray Chew on percussion, Dave Nadian on strings, and Charles Libove, Max Polikoff, Sanford Allen, Paul Gershman, Harry Cykman, Mathew Raimondi, Robert Rozek, concert masters. Lou Marini played the Flute and Fluegel horn. Vocals by Diva Gray and Neil Sheppard. Voices by Lani Groves, Yvonne Lewis, Gwen Guthrie, and Randy Brecker (Blood, Sweat & Tears fame). The song, "Let me be your fantasy" was a key track, and became an underground classic. It's actually included on the 2001 issued CD, "Disco Spectrum 2: Real Disco for Real People" which was put together by Joey Negro. The tracks were written by Mitchell H. Farber and Neil Sheppard.

Steven Earl Gardner-Drums
Tonina Guccione Biggs Andrews-Vocals
Jim Horn-Sax (Session Jazz Player)
After the original LP failed to chart, or sell, or get played, Penthouse decided to cut thier losses a little, and issued this stripped down version of the original LP. It is thought the 6 strongest songs were put on this record, 4 as they appeared on the original LP, and two remixes, "Love Somebody (Street Version)" and
"Night Flyer (Dance Version)". Apparently Threshold tried to carry on as a live band after Doug left the studio in 1982, but they didnt get too far. The novelity of Bob Guccione's daughter fronting a rock band must have worn off. There may have been some other single releases as well. Research continues.
|5. Nov 14th 1980 We Are One-Caligula Love Theme PR 101-S
7" Single, "Special DJ Edition"
1) We Are One-Caligula Love Theme (3:22)
A) We Are One-Caligula Love Theme-Dance Version (2:45)
These are slightly different mixes than appear on the 12" Versions that come with the Soundtrack Album. The single was commercially released, and also sent to radio and clubs. Now that we know when this record was issued, I may take another look at Billboard, there still is a chance it could have made some inroads.

|Nick "Chinga" Chavin was born in 1944, and put this collection of music together about 1975. It came to the attention of Bob Guccione, who decided to sell the LP and Tape through Penthouse Magazine by mail order beginning in 1976. They shifted over 100,000 units, and the single was also released as a promo to D.J.'s. "Cum stains on my pillow" is still a staple on some late night radio broadcasts. The LP was issued in Canada on Attic-LAT 1094, and in 1992 it was issued on CD with 4 bonus tracks. Check out Amazon.com|
