The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - Hooked On Classics A b/w Hooked On Classics B (1981) - single

Louis Clark, former arranger for Electric Light Orchestra, conducted the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra playing a collection of very recognizable extracts from classical music pieces played over a continuous beat (sometimes an overtly disco fast beat, sometimes a slower and more subtle rhythm that linked the segments together. This is called the Symphonic Rock or Orchestrated Rock genre, like London Symphony Orchestra did in its Classic Rock series but with fewer electronic effects. The first cut of the initial album was a very successful single “Hooked On Classics”, reaching Number 2 on the UK Singles Chart in august 1981.
