Alicia Bridges – I Love The Nightlife (1978)

Disco diva Alicia Bridges scored big in 1978 with her chart-topping hit “I Love the Nightlife.” It was her biggest moment in music, making her self-titled debut a definite part of the feel-good disco scene of the late ’70s. The blues-tinged “Diamond in the Rough” and “Broken Woman” were mildly successful, but Bridges never regained her disco reign. Two more albums followed — 1979’s Play It as It Lays and 1984’s Hocus Pocus — but those failed to gain recognition despite some disco threads transitioning into the new wave scene of the early ’80s. Bridges wasn’t entirely forgotten. Nearly 20 years later, electronic dance gurus “Little” Louie Vega and Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez of the house act Masters at Work revamped “I Love the Nightlife for the campy flick The Last Days of Disco. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, All Music Guide
