Top of the Pops 16 March 1978: Legs & Co. dance to ‘Is This Love’ by Bob Marley & The Wailers
There’s not much of a West Indian community in my home town: consequently, I’ve not been to many blues parties. But even a square like me knows that this is not really the authentic way to dance to reggae.
But you know what? I don’t care. Legs & Co. are looking lovely here, even down to the pom-poms on their toes (or are they bows?), and they’re they’re dancing well – in a very European, un-funky style perhaps – but so what?
This is a delightful routine to watch. Authenticity be damned.
