Disco Inferno (Album of the Day)
Philadelphia vocal group The Trammps were early adopters of disco, harmonizing to irresistible dance rhythms with a little help from their friends in MFSB, Philly soul hitmakers in their own right who provided production and instrumental support. The Trammps reached the big leagues with "Disco Inferno," which was just a minor hit until inclusion in the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack pushed it back up to #11 on the pop chart. The song, in its near-11-minute full-length version, became the title track to the quintet's most successful album, which also included two other Dance chart No.1s in "Starvin'" and "Body Contact Contract." The Gold-certified DISCO INFERNO was released 40 years ago today, and the collection can still make dancefloors burn, baby, burn.
