Bad Reputation (1979)

Not to belabor the point, but comparing this to Brazil or Queens neatly displays the difference between early and late disco: the percussion breakdowns, shifting instrumentation and outside genre influences have been replaced by an unvarying strings/bass/drums/unison vocals formula over an unchanging 4/4 beat. Also, the mix of medleys and short songs has given way to a uniform six- to eight-minute track length. The only way to tell one song from another is the chorus melody, and on this record there's not much to choose from: I assume the title track was the single, but its girl-done-wrong theme is hackneyed; Side Two's progression of titles - "It's A Man's World," "Where Are The Men," "Sexy Man" - reveals a simplemindedness unusual even for disco. (Most of the lyrics flowed from the pen of Village People frontman Victor Willis.) Practically the only plus is the vocals, which have the same outrageous, edge-of-hysteria quality as Patti LaBelle, though without LaBelle's delicacy. By now the singers were Vera Brown, Jaqui Smith-Lee and Theodosia Draher; musicians include Michael Brecker on sax and, on "Sexy Man" only, Francisco Centeno on bass. (DBW)
