"Disco is the music that America tried to forget. This story of disco — from its subterranean roots to its gaudy blossoming and beyond — remains largely unknown, but photographer Waring Abbott has captured it with a wonderful combination of dexterity, passion and humour.
He was there to record the cathartic celebrations of the gay-driven dance floors, and he subsequently chronicled the hedonistic excess of Studio 54. He captured the pounding concerts of groups such as Chic and the Village People. Divas such as Loleatta Holloway, Grace Jones and Donna Summer were added to Abbott's portfolio...and all of the promoters and club owners looked into Abbott's lens."
