The Joy Of Disco – BBC documentary

The Joy Of Disco – BBC documentary

Wonderful BBC show about the four beats that changed the world.

Disco’s life, from 1969 to 1979, from illegal gay bath house to stadium rock to originator of house, is one of the most surprising, and still shockingly under written-about. Coming on the back of the disco revival, and the accompanying books Love Saves The Day, Turn The Beat Around and Vince Aletti’s The Disco Files is this lovely hour-long documentary that charts disco’s extraordinary tale. Disco as libertarian, revolutionary music? Starring Nile Rogers, Robin Gibb and Alexis Petridis? We’re down.
