Albert Goldman - Disco
Disco (Albert Goldman, published by Hawthorn 1978) is Considered to be one of the seminal texts on dance music, and the main source from which all other texts about disco were born. Goldman seizes the scene from the multiple perspectives of a musicologist, sociologist and anthropologist. Best known as the biographer for Elvis and John Lennon, Goldman became fascinated with disco after interviewing Frankie Grasso for Penthouse. His extended essay retraces the disco explosion back to its primeval roots drawing comparisons to Venetian Balls from the mid 19th century and other excessive forms of hedonism.
Despite the overriding emphasis on the obvious glamour of clubs such as Studio 54 and Xenon, this book features more important underground clubs such as Crisco Disco and Paradise Garage. The book is jam packed with an eclectic mix of text, trivia and archive photos, including a four page spread of 22 discotheque entrances, long since forgotten. Bobby Guttadaro, Tom Savarese, Cerrone, Georgio Moroder, Grace Jones, Tom Moulton and David Mancuso are all featured.
