YouTube Treasure: Eurodisco At Its Absolute Zaniest

Baccara is not a brand of unfinished crystal.

It was a Spanish female pop/disco duo who looked like Little Nell meets Pinky Tuscadero, and whose sound came off like half of ABBA--or maybe like all of Pink Lady--but with a lot more teeth and legs.

The Most Fabulous Video I've Ever Done

Please indulge my Norma Desmond-like obsession with the past just one more time -- today -- and watch this YouTube classic, filmed at the notorious Limelight club by Nelson Sullivan sometime in the carefree '80s.

It has me in a glorious gown and stunning red braid, doing an impression of Ann-Margret as if re-conceived by Andy Warhol, Timothy Leary, and Diana Vreeland in a very dark alley.
