Live and Sleazy is the fifth album by the Village People and features a mixture of live and studio recordings. It was released as a double LP. The album featured numerous lead singers: the original cop Victor Willis (tracks 1–6), the second cop Ray Simpson (tracks 8, 9, and 11), the construction worker David Hodo (track 7), and the G.I. Alex Briley (track 10). Horace Ott was credited as the arranger and conductor of the string and horn sections while the other musicians were from Bittersweet.

Victor Willis has announced on his Facebook page that there are plans for the live portion of this album be remastered and issued as a stand alone live album titled “Village People Live At The Greek Theatre” later in 2018. No information regarding if this re-release will include tracks left off the Live & Sleazy version such as “Key West”,”Go West”,”I Wanna Shake Your Hand”, and the track “Village People” which included band introductions by David Hodo.
