Il veliero - The Chaplin Band

The Chaplin Band was founded in 1976 by the brothers Bartels in Maastricht, the Netherlands. They want to make disco music, and their first attempt is a success: the debut single 'Let's have a party', released in January 1977, reached number 24 in the Dutch Top 40. Their second hit comes only five years later: 'Il veliero', a cover from a song originally performed by Italian singer Luigi Battisti.

The 12" single features a seven minute dance version. A twelve minute extended remix also seems to exist.

My collection: 12" single no. 36
Found: Disco Market, Den Haag, 1986
Cost: 7,5 guilders
Tracks: 'Il veliero (long dance version)' / 'Il veliero (radio version)', 'Gimme just a minute of your time'
