A quite forgettable routine this and choosing a DOTD is also rather mundane task on this one. Just because Lulu performs her own solo in this dosen't mean to say i should choose her. But quite frankly there isn't a lot happening. Nice shot of Patti early doors, Rosie's had her hair crimped and that's about it. So i guess i will have to select Lovely `Lulu`.
Yes I agree this is a rather muted performance although I love the look of the Troupe here. Lulu's solo is not compelling IMO due mostly to it's shadowy overlaid nature so I'm giving this DotD to the lady who's beauty shines through the early stages and that's the divine Patti.
Some Dancers who gave a good time, broke all the rules, played all the fools, yeah yeah yeah they blew our minds
At the start of the routine, she looks to be copying her dance moves from an instruction manual, the way that she glances downwards, & then turns around & carries out those moves across the dance floor, that for me makes for some great comedic values.
was there some sort of energy crisis in the TOTP studios in 1977? What else can explain the low lighting? Anyway a fair routine after all that and for me Sue sticks out a bit better than the others although there isn't a huge difference between them.
