About the Artist:
Village People is an American disco group well known for its on-stage costumes depicting American masculine cultural stereotypes as well as their catchy tunes and suggestive lyrics. Originally created by Jacques Morali and Henri Belolo to target disco’s gay audience by featuring popular gay fantasy personae, the band quickly became popular and moved into the mainstream. The group scored a number of disco and dance hits, including “Macho Man,” “Go West,” the classic club medley of “San Francisco (You’ve Got Me)/In Hollywood,” “In the Navy,” and the group’s greatest hit, “Y.M.C.A.” Village People have sold more than 100 million records worldwide.
To promote its Spring 1979 On Tour disco/dance concert, Can’t Stop the Music, Inc., produced a 14-page concert booklet discussing the history of the Village People, the impact of the group’s music, and colored glossy photos of the six original singers/dancers: Alex Timerman, David Hodo, Felipe Rose, Glenn Hughes (deceased), Randy Jones and Victor Willis. The concert booklet is in great vintage condition. The inner pages and photographs are free of any yellowing, though, like the cover pages, do have some bends and creases. In addition, the corners of the cover pages have some edge wear. The staples holding the pages together are in good order.
This vintage Village People concert booklet would make for a great fun and surprising gift for a fan of 1970s disco music or a collector of music memorabilia of that era. If that’s you, then don’t let this item pass you by!
