Storyline

Louise Robey's One Night in Bangkok was always an irresistible wapatui blend of disco, pop, and soul that sounds dated and yet sounds great now that it's been remastered. True, she was a highly paid fashion model who would risk anything to become a highly paid disco singer. On "Bangkok," she collaborated with producer Joel Diamond, who since then has accumulated 36 gold and platinum recordings and has produced hits for many artists, from Laura Branigan, Gloria Gaynor, Jay Black, Sister Sledge, Helen Reddy. The title song is a cover of the Murray Head recording from the Broadway show "Chess." Robey's version hit number one in the dance clubs and various mixes of the song have circulated, but America was in an anti-disco mood by the mid-80s trying to cast off the musical vestiges of the 1970s.
