I've been lucky enough to pretty much avoid being exposed to much disco.  In order to keep things that way, I may sit this one out.

Not as bad as "hip hop".

Re: The wasn't disco crap thread .

When the disco craze was going on I wouldn't be caught dead listening to it or going to a disco - strictly for guidos. Now I think Saturday Night Fever is a great movie and I can enjoy some of the music. I mean I'll listen if a Bee Gees song from the movie comes on the car radio. Most of the rest of disco music I still can't take.

Thinking about it this, for me, should go in the 'I Fucking HATE That Song' thread but here you go:

A lot of disco was innovative and well produced, I've always had a soft spot for it.

Re: The wasn't disco crap thread .

A vast quantity of brilliant disco tunes were made. They all also belonged to other genres e.g. funk, jazz, soul, rock, reggae, Latin (not exactly a genre), African (ditto), electronic, . . . True, there were also a million commercial crap tunes made in an attempt to cash in on disco, but everything good in music of the 80s to the present day was done better in the disco era.

Re: The wasn't disco crap thread .

I always mentally pigeon holed chic as soul rather than disco.
They were far and away the best that's for sure.

Re: The wasn't disco crap thread .

Was anybody part of the original anti-disco movement in the late 70s?

I was certainly against the look of the BeeGees, even as a baby Hepcat.

Totally concur with the idea that disco was not initially a single style of music but became a description of a genre comprising of bad music with a welded on 4/4 beat.

Before it all went a bit wrong..

Cerrone - Supernature,
Any of the Tom Moulton 12" mixes,
Michael Jackson - Rock With You,
Sheila B Devotion - Spacer.
Sylvester - (You Make Me Feel) Mighty Real.
GIlberto Gil - Toda Menina Bahia
Magma - oh oh baby (French prog goes disco big_smile )
E2E4 - Manuel Gottisching

Re: The wasn't disco crap thread .

Nick Straker A Little Bit of Jazz
Candido Jingo (various mixes)
Babe Ruth The Mexican
Manu Dibango Soul Makossa
Atmosfear Dancing in Outerspace

And thousands more, many of the highest quality. The late seventies was a swansong for popular music's (particularly black American music's) golden age of the 40s to the early 80s. (Not to say lots of good stuff hasn't been made since then - it has.)

Like most recorded music there's jetsam and flotsam... take your pick of the best and laugh at the rest.
