Living in Quebec - I can easily reaffirm that Patrick Juvet was NOT a one hit wonder.
His music (mainly ballads) were all over the airwaves.LES BLEUS AU COEUR is a very beautiful song.
His 2 Casablanca albums are at the top of my list when it comes to disco faves.And when you put them both on the same disc ; it's even better.
THE GAY PARIS medley is so great.
Yes, so was Kelly Marie..
I specified "in Europe"..
Plus there was life for Patrick before "I Love America"..Just look at his Discography and I really like "Lady Night"the entire album, alot, which came after.
Lady D, in Europe he was big, so was TINA CHARLES and DAVID HASSELHOFF. In the States? Almost a one-hit wonder, but more. How about a ONE-ALBUM WONDER?? He really didn't do much here after I LOVE AMERICA! Did he?? Not here, anyway.
He was definately not a one hit wonder..
In Europe he "was" pretty much a Superstar
The States sometime over look very good talent and tracks as well..
well, when your biggest hit takes up an entire album side, maybe all you need is one hit (a la "In a Gadda Da Vida").
In his day, I thought that PATRICK was going to be a superstar. After I LOVE AMERICA, how could you not think that! That song rocked the DISCO scene and packed their Dance Floors. Never had another HUGE hit like that again?? WONDERING WHY?? Glad to see he is still going strong!!
