Obscure Grooves #2: Space Age Disco
I can think of no other genre of music with such a huge percentage of crap. Don't get me wrong - there's a lot of great disco music, but if you stray too far off the beaten path (i.e. ABBA, The Bee Gees, Donna Summer) you're likely to get burned. According to my calculations, roughly 99.994% of the disco records released in the 1970s were utter shit.
Brainstorm is no exception. I was attracted to this one simply for its amazing cover. Unfortunately, the round piece of etched vinyl that was found underneath the artwork is woefully bland. Generic disco music at its most mediocre. Take a listen to "Hot For You"
Perhaps a better example is "Space Disco" by The Universal Robot Band (1976). I can see this really working on the dance floor. Band member, Patrick Adams, would become "Disco's Secret Master" - his credits appear on nearly one thousand disco songs!
