"Renaissance" The Village People (1981)

The Village People had an image problem in 1981. 

They were a disco band at a time when disco was pretty much dead. 

Their old label, Casablanca had just been acquired by PolyGram and PolyGram went straight to work dropping all the old disco acts from it's roster, Donna Summer went to Geffen and The Village People signed to RCA. And they revamped to a new wave image. 

Out went the costumes, in came SUPER dorky outfits, makeup and really, really, bad hair. 

This was the album's only single: "Five O' Clock In The Morning"

This is considered one of the WORST album covers of all time......
