Disco family ’80s cover of Star Wars theme

WFMU’s Beware of the Blog reports:

You haven’t truly heard the theme from Star Wars until you’ve heard it performed by Dryden, Ontario’s The Bordens, with father George Borden (accordion), mom Jeanette (Electrovox organ), sons Roger (saxophone and guitar) and Gary (drums), and nephew Bill Dombradi (guitar). According to the liner notes, The Bordens played in “various parts of the country,” including Thunder Bay and Edmonton, and recorded this album at Century 21 in Winnipeg. The snippets of other songs they throw into the mix, including the “snake charmer song”, are just gravy. Good Times, indeed.

    That recording studio was in the neighborhood I grew up in. I’d walk past it to go to the corner Mac’s store to get slushies.
