The 4-track Village People mini-album came out in the spring of on Casablanca Records, picturing a group of models on the cover - but struggled at first to get anywhere. Slowly over the next months, " San Francisco (You Got Me) " started to set the dancefloors on fire in the gay discos, and the album peaked at #54 on the Pop charts.
The land area of Fire Island is 9. Fire Island lies on average 3. The island is accessible by automobile near each end: via Robert Moses Causeway on its western end, and by William Floyd Parkway Suffolk County Road 46 near its eastern end. Cross-bay ferries connect to over 10 points in between. Motor vehicles are not permitted on the rest of the island, except for utility, construction and emergency access and with limited beach-driving permits in winter.
The island and its resort towns are accessible by boat, seaplane and a number of ferries , which depart from Patchogue , Bay Shore and Sayville. The physical attributes of the island have changed over time and they continue to change. However, this is expected.
The inlet widened on September 21, Moriches Inlet and efforts by local communities east of Fire Island to protect their beach front with jetties have led to an interruption in the longshore drift of sand going from east to west and is blamed for erosion of the Fire Island beachfront. The origin of Fire Island's name is not certain. The Secatogues were a tribe in the area of the current town of Islip. It was part of what was also called the "Seal Islands".
The name of Fire Island first appeared on a deed in Historian Richard Bayles suggested that the name derives from a misinterpretation or corruption of the Dutch word vijf "five" , or in another version vier "four" , referring to the number of islands near the Fire Island inlet. Other versions say the island derived its name from fires built on the sea's edge by Native Americans or by pirates to lure unsuspecting ships into the sandbars. Some say it is how portions of the island look to be on fire from sea in autumn.
Yet another version says it comes from the rash caused by poison ivy on the island. While the western portion of the island was referred to as Fire Island for many years, the eastern portion was referred to as Great South Beach until , when widespread development caused the whole land mass to be called Fire Island. Though it is well established that indigenous Native Americans occupied what are today known as Long Island and Fire Island for many centuries before Europeans arrived, there has existed a long-standing myth that Long Island and nearby Fire Island were occupied by "thirteen tribes" "neatly divided into thirteen tribal units, beginning with the Canarsie who lived in present-day Brooklyn and ending with the Montauk on the far eastern end of the island.
They lived in small communities that were connected in an intricate web of kinship relations [ The western groups spoke the Delaware - Munsee dialect of Algonquian and shared cultural characteristics such as the longhouse system of social organization with their brethren in what is now New Jersey and Delaware.
The linguistic affiliation of the eastern groups is less well understood [ Working with a few brief vocabulary lists of Montauk and Unquachog , he suggested that the Montauk might be related to Mohegan-Pequot and the Unquachog might possibly be grouped with the Quiripi of western Connecticut.
The information on the Shinnecock was too sparse for any determination [ We simply do not know what these people called themselves, but all the ethnographic data on North American Indian cultures suggest that they identified themselves in terms of lineage and clan membership.
Deeds, according to the European concept of property, had to be signed by identifiable owners with authority to sell and have specific boundaries on a map.
The relatively amorphous leadership structure of the Long Island communities, the imprecise delineation of hunting ground boundaries, and their view of the land as a living entity to be used rather than owned made conventional European real estate deals nearly impossible to negotiate. The surviving primary records suggest that the Dutch and English remedied this situation by pressing cooperative local sachems to establish a more structured political base in their communities and to define their communities as "tribes" with specific boundaries [ A beach renourishment program was credited with saving the island from the full effects of Hurricane Sandy in In the winter and spring of , a beach renourishment project was undertaken on Fire Island, with the cooperation of the National Park Service , the U.
The Towns of Brookhaven and Islip, in which the communities are located, issued bonds to pay for the project, backed by the new taxes levied by community Erosion Control Taxing Districts. The island was heavily damaged in the high tides associated with Hurricane Sandy in including three breaches around Smith Point County Park on the sparsely populated east end of the island.
The biggest breach and politically most difficult one to deal with because it is in a wilderness area is at Old Inlet in the Otis Pike Wilderness Area just west of Smith Point County Park. Old Inlet is at the site of previous breaches which have come and gone on their own was feet wide after the storm on the south end and 1, feet on February 28, However residents of the bay front communities noted increased flooding after the storm.
This flooding was later found to be the result of several nor'easters and unrelated to the breaches. Reports indicated that 80 percent of the homes, particularly those on the east end, were flooded, and 90 homes were completely destroyed. But Fire Island was not hit as hard as other areas, and most of the 4, homes on the island survived even if damaged. Officials credited the dune replenishment program with helping to spare the island. Robert Moses State Park , occupying the remaining western portion of the island, is one of the popular recreational destinations in the New York City area.
Following are the locations on the island. Townships listed from west to east, communities alphabetically. The following are associated islands in the Fire Island National Seashore Jurisdiction, from west to east:.
Morali approached Willis and told him, "I had a dream that you sang lead on my album and it went very, very big".
Willis agreed. The album was a success, and demand for live appearances soon followed. Morali, his business partner Henri Belolo under the collaboration Can't Stop Productions and Willis hastily built a group of dancers to perform with Willis in clubs and on Dick Clark 's American Bandstand.
Although the composers were French, the lyrics were all in English as Morali and Belolo used American lyricists. On the first album, they brought in songwriters Phil Hurtt and the aforementioned Peter Whitehead. The band's name references New York City's Greenwich Village neighborhood, at the time known for having a substantial gay population.

Anyhoo, perhaps no one would care if they found out about his photo spread, for truth be told, this wasn't exactly hitting the big time. Not yet anyway. The songs were recorded and the movie was about to be released So they rushed out and placed ads all over town- " Wanted: Singers With Mustaches To Audition", and the men came calling. A trick I've thought about using once on a lonely Saturday night, but then I digress So, Randy Jones showed up, a man with real singing talent and Broadway experience.
David Hodo showed up and could sing as well. And lo and behold, a tollbooth collector wearing a leather jacket named Glenn M. Hughes showed up. Well Martha, that's all she wrote! They had a gang! A collection of singers who were ready for the big time!
Minus Judy and Mickey. They secured a record deal with.. Casablanca Records home to the 2 men's other act The Ritchie Family, and many, many other fabulous disco belting acts The album cover was made. For some odd reason. A couple more songs were added- to be used for a second Village People album it turns out. So who knew a movie soundtrack AND a group's debut album would be one in the same? So, there you go readers, I suggest you rush out and buy a copy of this wonderful album and may the lights of disco shine upon your heavenly dreams The Village People, a remarkably cool and unique act that celebrated the joys of living an alternative lifestyle, got their first album out in style!
Sure, it's just four tracks--but what a great four tracks we get! As they sing of San Francisco as a haven for gay people, The Village People harmonize well and the musical arrangement makes great use of the percussion, brass and drums. The percussion marks the beat and The Village People sing this flawlessly.
What a hoot! Great disco flavor on "Fire Island! In addition, "Village People" has them singing of the importance of coming out in order to live a much happier life. Great harp at the beginning! The percussion marks the beat once again and they sing this to perfection.
The liner notes have great artwork; and we get the song credits. The Village People could be scoffed at for being such a dated group--but that's only if you don't understand that their music is truly great and the messages they sent through their songs are still relevant in our times. The Village People still have two of their original members, Felipe Rose Native American and David Hodo construction worker ; and with any luck they will continue to give us some good, campy entertainment for ages to come.
