A very interesting album for fans of the Village People. Originally formed as a studio group with Victor Willis singing lead- the producers Jacques Morali and Henri Belolo wanted a representation of the gay crowd they witnessed in Greenwich Village in New York. The "concept" slowly turned into an actual group when the popularity of the songs began circulating in the gay clubs- which was not the sole purpose of these songs, because this first album is also the soundtrack to the 1977 film NEW YORK CITY INFERNO (gay adult porn movie), which Jacques Morali and Henri Belolo were composing all at the same time. When Village People went on American Bandstand in 1977 and in their music videos for 1977, the group of performers were Victor Willis- lead singer and COP, Felipe Rose was backup singer and INDIAN (reportedly he was the first "character" Jacques and Henri saw in Greenwich Village initially. However, Felipe Rose was somewhat of a popular dancer at the Anvil as well as bartender in clubs always dressed in Indian gear, and his name was "out there" so to speak, due to his naked photo spread in the local AFTER DARK magazine in 1977, which he kept his headress on and nothing else). Alex Briley- backup singer and ATHLETE (later changed to ARMY MAN with the second album MACHO MAN. Alex was the only "hand picked" singer by Victor himself, because Alex could actually sing), Mark Mussler, an unknown, was a backup singer dressed as a CONSTRUCTION WORKER (later, after Jacques and Henri placed an ad asking for singers with moustaches to audtion, David "Scar" Hodo passed the audition to become the CONSTRUCTION WORKER starting with the MACHO MAN album), Dave Forrest, an unknown, was backup singer dressed as a COWBOY (later replaced by Randy Jones who answered the ad and had actual singing talent from Broadway experience), Lee Mouton, an unknown, who was backup singer dressed as a LEATHERMAN (later replaced by Glenn M. Hughes who was a tollbooth collector who answered the ad) and lastly, Peter Whitehead who was an actual songwriter, who helped write some of the Village People songs). The Village People exploded on the disco scene and hit the radio with their first big hit MACHO MAN in 1978 and the rest is HIStory.
