Overview

By the late '70s, disco went from being the little engine that could to the typhoon that roared with a swift ferocity, thanks in no small part to a movie highlighting the disco craze starring Vinnie Barbarino. Suddenly, disco music went from being the soundtrack to a predominately gay and black audience to the next big thing here to stay. Everyone from Telly Savalas to Ethel Merman cashed in, and nowhere was the craze more profitable than Hollywood. This Thump collection takes several of the most notable moments in Hollywood disco history and puts them all on one convenient and economically sensible package. Taking some of the high points (Giorgio Moroder's classic "From Here to Eternity" and Donna Summer's stunning "Last Dance") as well as the low points (Santa Esmeralda's excessively indulgent and unreasonably lengthy "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood"), Hollywood Disco is an accurate survey of the commercial world's mildly watered-down take on some of the most inventive music of the era.
