Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380809079, Paperback)

Disco - people either love it or hate it. But one thing's for sure: rumours of its death are premature. This lighthearted yet in-depth look at one of the most outrageous eras in musical - and cultural - history discusses the fashion and the freaks, the music-makers and the celebrators, to uncover why disco was so revered and reviled. From disco's musical roots in black funk to its across-the-board appeal; from the history of dance halls to the rise of cruelly exclusive clubs; from the reigning queens (Gloria Gaynor, Donna Summer) to the wannabes (Dolly Parton, Frank Sinatra, and even Ethel Merman!), Hot Stuff will leave readers with the urge to dust off their platform shoes, dig out their mirrored balls, and shake their booties all night long.
