    So happy to see you are a Charo fan. Her Salsoul disco singles are great fun. Olé Olé is my favorite. Check out her video for Dance A Little Bit Closer. It’s pure Disco Vegas glitz. Merry Holiday!!

    Charo is a real hoot and I adore her! Dance A Little Closer is one of my Disco Favourites! And this Christmas cover is just as kitsch!
    With John Davis and Tom Moulton on the helms, this can’t go wrong!
    Thanks Paul!
