‘Voulez-Vous Coucher Avec Moi . . .’

Originally posted March 27, 2008

As a further reminder that Patti LaBelle and her girls came along long before Christina and the others, here’s a 1975 performance by LaBelle of “Lady Marmalade.” I’m not sure where the performance took place; I get the sense it was Germany or the Netherlands, but I could be way wrong. Either way, the performance ended up on a two-disc DVD set titled “The Best Disco In Town,” offered – if I’m reading this right – by a firm called ZDF Kultnacht.*

*Soon after this post went up, a friendly reader informed me that ZDF Kultnacht was a pop music show on a German television network. The video originally presented here is no longer available, so I’ve replaced it with another televised performance of “Lady Marmalade” from 1975. Note added June 20, 2011.
