Georgio Moroder – From Here to Eternity

Album: From Here to Eternity (Casablanca, 1978) Chart pos:N/A

In defence of disco Part I.

With Donna Summer being nominated for the Hall of fame some people are riled that the brainchild of many of her biggest hits was overlooked. It was with good reason though as Georgio Moroder’s 70’s disco productions sounds way ahead of its time, yet he was no slouch on his own. From Here to Eternity sounds as hypnotic as Kraftwerk, yet it is more aligned with the dance floor than the avant-garde. It’s an underrated track from and underrated album that’s almost instrumental in the genesis of electronic music. While much disco music sounds horribly dated its amazing how this record has far outlasted much of the music from this era.
