Whatever Happened To… Village People?

Browse & purchase this albumGo West – Village People (1979)
This American group, formed by a French composer Jacques Morali & producer Henri Belolo, personified several male stereotypes seen around New York’s Greenwich Village in the late 70’s. They rode the wave of disco’s popularity – and lead singer Victor Willis’ strong vocals – to international fame. As with disco’s rise & fall, the Village People’s meteoric rise faded quickly as the 80’s began and several line-up changes ensued. Their last studio album came out in 1985, after which they took a break for two years. Since their return in 1987, their line-up has remained relatively stable, with three founding members still on-board. Thanks to their status as pop-culture icons, they continue to tour internationally and make special appearances to this day. They can be seen touring the US throughout this summer.
