The Joy Of Disco

If you know me, you know I love me my disco. So imagine my delight when I came across this BBC-produced documentary. It’s pretty good and a well-recommended watch. Tom Moulton is especially funny reminiscing about his remix of Andrea True Connection‘s More More More. As is Moroder on the creation of the pioneering Diana Ross classic I Feel Love. Their focus on the connection between disco music and gay culture gives me warm fuzzies. My biggest gripe is that there’s nary a mention of Larry Levan, not one peep.
