    Actually some Disco tunes were pretty good. KC and the Sunshine Band had a few.

    I've never had a problem with disco but as a millennial it's always been classic to me and I know I've only heard the cream of the crop of it on the radio...

    And I’m gonna jump y’all a few decades. I 100% Love Tiga. No guitars, sorry! But when my day is rough Tiga brings me up and I can’t help shaking! Enjoy.

    Don't dig KC and I'm probably not a fan of the sum of 70s disco, but I think the whole thing did put a lot of great bass playing, and what I'd rather just call very good funk and soul music, on display for everybody.

    Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards alone were absolute monsters and already cited twice in this thread, in different configurations. (Henry Davis?) on the Thelma Houston version of Don't Leave Me This Way. Larry f'n Graham on anything he touched.

    Rick James, [email protected]#%ers!


    And is the last great 'disco' track?
    This quote sums it up nicely..."When an 80s band made a song in the 90s after taking 60s LSD while jamming out to 70s music"
