A big beautiful book on the disco generation of the 70s – oversized, filled with color images, and broken into great little segments that serve up the period in sweet little slices! The book's a lot better than we might have guessed – thoughtfully put together, with a look at disco from many directions – its roots, its records, its regulars, its radio – and a whole host of other intersecting forces that made the period one of the greatest ever for groovy music! The text is layered beautifully with the images – which include loads of vintage images from the clubs, fashion, records, magazines, and more – a really great array of pictures, but put together with an eye more towards historical significance – not just 70s trash. 256 pages, hardcover, in full color!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
