The Disco Files 1973-78: New York's Underground, Week By Week – Vince Aletti (2009)

With reviews of every disco record worth knowing about, weekly reports from New York’s club scene, classic magazine articles and 800 contemporary club charts, this is the definitive chronicle of disco. It's the personal memoir of Vince Aletti, the very first writer to cover the emerging scene, bringing to life the clubs, the characters, and above all the music.

The Disco Files were evidently inspired by a limited edition 400 page collection of Vince's Record World columns put together by artist and curator Matthew Higgs which accompanied an exhibition of Aletti's portrait collection entitled "Male" held last March at New York's White Columns and last summer at Vancouver's Presentation House Gallery.
