24cm x 17cm. 484 pages, black and white illustrations. Illustrated wrappers.
Now out of print. “In 1973, Vince Aletti became the first person to write about the emerging disco scene. As disco grew from an underground secret to a billion-dollar industry, Aletti was there to document it, and The Disco Files is his personal memoir of those days, containing everything he wrote on the subject (most of it between 1974 and 1978) augmented with photography by Peter Hujar and Toby Old. This book is the definitive and essential chronicle of disco, true from-the-trenches reporting that details, week by week, the evolution of the clubs, the DJs, and above all, the music, through magazine articles, beautiful photographs, hundreds of club charts and thousands of record reviews.” (publisher’s blurb
