Disco: Spinning the Story

Whether you love it or hate it, disco changed music forever. This Gloria Gaynor-hosted documentary may suffer slightly from some cheesy graphics, but for anyone interested in learning the history of this unfairly damned genre, this is a comprehensive tutorial. Existing for barely five years before it was publicly destroyed by a massive record burning at Comiskey Park in 1979, disco brought a common ground to all different races, cultures and sexualities unlike any other kind of music, and it also popularised the remix and created the twelve-inch single. Featuring interviews with legends like George Clinton, Giorgio Moroder, Kurtis Blow and Nile Rodgers, Spinning the Story is essential viewing for anyone with Saturday night fever. (Passport/Koch)
