“J'ai Deux Amours (Two Loves Have I)” by Phylicia Allen – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Phylicia Allen creates a disco-fied tribute to the great, Josephine Baker, an American singer-dancer who is noted for her wonderful contributions to the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. Allen works with disco producers Jacques Morali and Henry Belolo (Village People, The Ritchie Family) and gives two medleys outlining the climb and success of Ms. Baker.
Disco music of the late 70s began to work as themes for great films, events and times in history which gives it a lasting luster with its full band and sometimes orchestrated productions. This project is a wonderful example of that genre.
I have taken the 1991 television film “The Josephine Baker Story” and used several of the fabulous sequences starring Lynn Whitfield – who gives a command performance as Josephine Baker.
The film was directed by Brian Gibson
