Chart Position[edit]

Party Tonight is a compilation album released by multi-hit Salsa and pop music group Modern Romance on the Ronco label. It was out in shops—on vinyl and cassette tape—ready for Christmas 1983 and showcased their biggest hits. It further offered some album tracks and cover versions. Party Tonight reached #45 on the UK Albums Chart, wrapping up what had been the band's watershed year; it is their highest charting album in the UK to date. The album was produced by Tony Visconti and featured tracks from their two previous studio albums—Adventures in Clubland (1982) and Trick of the Light (1983)—and featured its sister single, "Good Friday", released simultaneously. Party Tonight and Good Friday share the same cover photo.[2][3][1]

The album features both lead vocalists—Geoff Deane (1980–82) and Michael J. Mullins (1982–1985)—and was released in Germany by WEA and in Japan (under the title Juanita). The signature trumpets and horns by band member and conductor-composer John Du Prez are evident throughout.[2][3][1]


The album was advertised on UK television and selected tracks were used as jingles on BBC Radio 1. Further adverts were placed in national newspapers.[2][3][1]
