“Pleasure Island” by Paul Jabara – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Paul Jabara worked with disco music to create a lighter and more colorful edge to give the dance floor a good feeling to move with. His compositions include the disco classic “Last Dance” from 1978. His album “Keeping Time” was the work of Paul and producer Bob Esty – where they took several pieces work and applied dance music’s classic sound with the 70s new excitement. “Pleasure Island” is a track written by both Bob and Paul and one of the most incredible songs and movements containing Paul’s playful touch and Bob’s masterful production and arrangement. It is an incredible movement.
I have taken “Pleasure Island” along with the 1933 film, “King Kong” starring Fay Wray and Bruce Cabot – pairing the adventure of the mysterious island and the ominous beast, King Kong in this tribute to the disco track. It is the outline that disco fantasy is all about.
The film was directed by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Shoedsack
