Disco exploded in the late 70s with the release of Saturday Night Fever movie & soundtrack. Overnight disco was exposed to the worldwide masses. The disco clubber was born. At the very same time John Travolta look-a-likes (in polyester shirts and suits, exploiting the “hustle” in their platforms) hit the clubs, producers and rappers began some of the first “sampling” techniques. Disco marked the dawn of dance-based popular music and developed out of the increasingly groove-oriented sounds of early 70s funk. The high-spirited scene and pounding disco beats soon dominated the pop charts across the globe. This audio-visual collection on DVD includes some of the most important and successful disco icons of the era. This is one long celebration to the music.
