What is Disco Music
When you say 'Disco' to most people, it conjures up visions of Bee Gees, Abba, YMCA, I Will Survive....music yes but not what this period was all about -
Disco Music covers a wide range of styles of music and everyone will have a different opinion of what Disco Music is. Personally, it is music that is created that is either emotional, is evocative, has feeling or vibe or basically just sounds good! The first ‘Disco’ record I bought – Rubberband Man was at the time for me the pinnacle of music. It changed by mood, it made me want to dance, it lightened my mood and, at the age of 15 (in 1975) I embarked on a mission to find more music like this. I was drawn to Daddy Kool records, in Hanway Street just off Tottenham Court Road in London to seek out this exciting music. Being a diminutive little white fellow, I used to get some strange looks from some of the other clientele but ended up spending hours in there listening to the amazing music, and buying a few albums.
