Don't get the wrong idea, or anything. I just happen to have friends who send me these links, that's all.

Re: Everything is terriblle.

Michael Lavorgna told me that he feels that Disco got a bad rap because most of the people heard it on car radios and 8 track. He cranks it up on a good hi-fi and gets down and funky all night long. Of course, since it is rather unfashionable to boogie down to disco tunes on a good hi-fi, he does it when no one is watching.

As my daughter would say, that's random.

On the contrary, disco sounded great on 8-track tape, especially in-dash. I even had a special move for the program-changing kachung.

Forget disco on 8-track. It's fantastic on cocaine.

Re: Everything is terriblle.

I sometimes check out the disco stuff on cable music channels. Oddly, some of that shit is actually pretty good. What is better is classic R&B. What frightens me the most is that I do have a CD by Parliament.

Since we're coming out of the disco closet, and showing off our disco balls, most of the production values from that era were top notch. Really tight musicianship and arrangements.

Indeed. Back in the late 1970s I sat in on a string recording session for a disco tune at a pro studio in Boston, and it was amazing. The backing track kicked serious ass, and the bass player especially was amazing. The string arranger was Rob Mounsey, who later went on to great success and acclaim. Most of the string players were students from Berklee, and they sounded amazing. One of my all-time best favorite memories.

Then again, there's always this:

Do they have computers in the Home For The Bewildered now, or did an attendant forget to lock the back door...??

Weird. If this was really directed to me as an ad hominem, it's the most bizarrely amusing one I've ever received. Why, thanks. If not, I have no idea why you wrote what you wrote.

I see that your typing fingers are channeling your inner Barry Gibb, Stephen. Deep down inside, you might be just a sensitive, hairy man with a helium voice.

Come on, man. Come out of the disco closet, stand up and be counted! I did and I'm better for it. I feel liberated and free. You can admit your disco past. You won't be judged (at least not publicly)
