“Can-Can” by Stainless Steal – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Stainless Steal is a disco project from arranger Geoff Bastow and producer Pete Bellotte – both were in integral part of the Munich disco scene in the late 70s. Bastow arranged many disco projects including Suzie Lane’s “Ooh, La, La”, Joy Fleming’s “The Final Thing” and Elton John’s disco project “Born Bad”.
“Can-Can” is a disco version of the composition from the 1800s – that has since become associated with the French dance by the same name. The disco version inserts a few moments of disco orchestration on some sassy chorus girl riffs.
I have taken the 1982 film “Victor Victoria” – a film by Blake Edwards and stars Julie Andrews, James Garner and Robert Preston. The story set in 1934 revolves around a struggling singer/artist who pairs with Preston to create a fake female impersonation stage show to exhibit her voice.
The comedy moves quite well with the music of the can-can and creates a whole new experience for the film and disco recording.
The film was directed by Blake Edwards
