The Disco Files 1973-78: New York's Underground, Week By Week – Vince Aletti (2009)

With reviews of every disco record worth knowing about, weekly reports from New York’s club scene, classic magazine articles and 800 contemporary club charts, this is the definitive chronicle of disco. It's the personal memoir of Vince Aletti, the very first writer to cover the emerging scene, bringing to life the clubs, the characters, and above all the music. The first book from DJhistory.com

Reviews.

Essential, endlessly readable and generally indespensible!
The writing is a point-blank description of the changing sound of a scene as it forms, through commercialization. Add the charts, playlists, etc. and this makes for a great read and resource.
Amazing, ultra-detailed excursion into the Disco-Era, everything I dreamed of and more in one book. Worth every cent. A monument of the dance to treasure.
If you love Disco you need this book.
Don't miss out, you'll be wearing this book out for years to come.
a must have!
Thanx for sending the book!
What can I say, it's ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!
This is a MUST HAVE for any Disco lover!
BUY IT NOW!!!
