This odd 12" single is the audio equivalent of a Reader's Digest condensed book for The Rocky Horror Show. It includes bits and pieces of Science Fiction/Double Feature, The Time Warp, Sweet Transvestite, Hot Patootie, Touch-A, Touch-A, Touch Me, and Rose Tint My World, all run together back-to-back along with lots of drum machine, reverb, and other disco sound effects. On modern cast albums, it'd probably be called a "Mega Mix".
The Rocky Horror Disco Show is credited to "David & Roxana", but there is just one male singer for the bulk of the track. Apparently Roxana sang only for the 'Touch-A, Touch-A, Touch Me' portions. The "Instrumental Version" is exactly the same as the "Vocal Version" except... no vocals (duh). Neither of these tracks were ever reissued on compact disc. One random amusement is that the first time through "Science Fiction/Double Feature", Flash Gordon apparently has purple underwear. Then at the end when they're reprising the song, he has yellow underwear instead. *shrug*
