The Disco Files 1973-78: New York's underground, week by week

£34.99

Product description

In 1973 Vince Aletti became the first person to write about the emerging disco scene, and went on to write a famous weekly column in Record World magazine, which incorporated top ten playlists from DJs across the US (such as Larry Levan, Larry Sanders, Walter Gibbons, Tee Scott and Nicky Siano) alongside his own writings and interviews. As disco grew from an underground secret to a billion-dollar industry, Vince was there to document it, and this is his personal memoir, containing everything he wrote on the subject (most of it between 1974-1978). The Disco Files is the definitive and essential chronicle of disco, true from-the-trenches reporting that details, week by week, the evolution of the clubs, the DJs and above all, the music, through magazine articles, beautiful photography, hundreds of club charts and thousands of record reviews.
This book is in very good condition, some signs of shelf-wear and a small dent to the spine. Inside the pages are intact unmarked.
