The Original Soundtrack includes the singles “Life Is a Minestrone“, and “I’m Not in Love“, the band’s most popular song. The album was recorded and produced by the band at Strawberry Studios in 1974 with Eric Stewart engineering and mixing. The artwork was designed by Hipgnosis and illustrated by artist Humphrey Ocean. The Original Soundtrack was a critical and commercial success reaching No. 3 in the UK and No. 15 in the U.S. The album’s first single “Life Is a Minestrone” was a UK Top 10 for the band, peaking at No. 7. Their biggest success came with the song that sold the album, “I’m Not in Love”, which gave the band their second UK No. 1 in June 1975, staying there for two weeks. The song also provided them with their first major US chart success when the song reached No. 2. #10cc #theoriginalsoundtrack #imnotinlove #artrock #lifeisaminestrone #strawberrystudios #ericstewart #humphreyocean #billboardchart #hot100 #ukchart #tonyatlarge #eclectimaniacradioshow #todayinmusic #musichistory
