SOUL A:M Pres FOURTY YEARS OF DISCO

10/8/2017

We continue our October schedule celebrating 40 glorious years of Disco through our own unique angle that is very personal to both listener and myself alike. Many agree that 1977 was the milestone year through a culmination of key factors such as.
Artist frustration - In the lack of opportunities to break through to the popular music scene heavily dominated by rock and pop artist..
Oppression - Depression and Recession were not only confined to Manhattan, the United States but to the United Kingdom and the world thus creating a mood many were unable to escape which ever way you turned.
Under ground Music scene - People of minority not necessarily of colour or creed but poverty and sexual orientation sought solace within the safe confines of especially constructed parties that were easily accessible to those who wanted to feel free to be!
With the audio backdrop to these new-found social scenes being undiluted deep rhythm and blues cuts aka Dance R&B, It was not long before this underground movement rose to the surface and began its march towards global domination.

This first part of two in this series takes a look into the record labels, Artists and social influences that unintensionally create the spark that ignites the 70s D.I.S.C.O explosion..

Please note, This interpretation of historical events is told through my own unique way, If this either clashes with your own believes or actual timelines...This is not definative! So take it for what it is! personal and positive entertainment,

Best regards MJ
