Synopsis by Mark Deming
August Darnell's ambitious and wildly entertaining blend of R&B, funk, Latin, and tropical sounds helped make his band, Kid Creole & the Coconuts, one of the most consistently entertaining groups of the '80s. This video, recording the Kid and company on-stage in front of a packed Parisian house, captures them at the top of their game. Kid Creole & The Coconuts: In Paris includes the songs "I'm a Wonderful Thing, Baby," "Annie, I'm Not Your Daddy," "No Fish Today," "Mr. Softee," "Endicott," "Laughing With Our Backs Against the Wall," and much more.
