The Monique D'Ozo label
1977, TAKRL (The Amazing Kornyfone Record Label) used this label
extensively for about ten different artists. The real Monique D'Ozo is one of
over a dozen singers that were involved in a project called St. Tropez.
The idea behind the 1977 project spearheaded by Michael Lewis and Laurin
Rinder was that they would take the then hot disco music, and sing racier lyrics in French.
Inspired by gay disco, the theme would be gay and bi-sexual women. Over
a five year period, the project produced three albums and five 45 rpm
singles. The first LP that came out (on the AVI Label?) in 1977
was called Je
T'Aime, and was released on pink
vinyl. Following was Belle De Jour (1978) and Hot And Nasty (1982 ). There was most
likely a connection between TAKRL and D'Ozo, but it is
unknown exactly what that connection was.
