Im Lawrence’s seminal book charting the history of American dance music culture and the birth of the DJ… Opening with David Mancuso’s seminal “Love Saves the Day” Valentine’s party in February 1970, Tim Lawrence presses the rewind button and tells the definitive story of disco - from its murky subterranean roots in NoHo and Hell’s Kitchen to its gaudy blossoming in midtown Manhattan to the out-of-town networks that emerged in the suburbs and alternative urban hotspots such as Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and New Jersey. Tales of nocturnal journeys, radical music making, and polymorphous sexuality flow through the arteries of “Love Saves the Day” like liquid vinyl. They are interspersed with a detailed analysis of the era’s most powerful DJs, the venues in which they played, and the records they loved to spin. “Love Saves the Day” includes material from over three hundred original interviews with the scene’s most influential players, including John ‘Jellybean’ Benitez, Michael Cappello, Ken Cayre, Alec Costandinos, Steve D’Acquisto, Michael Fesco, Rochelle Fleming, Francis Grasso, Alan Harris, Loleatta Holloway, Francois Kevorkian, Frankie Knuckles, David Mancuso, Vince Montana, Giorgio Moroder, Tom Moulton, Steve Ostrow, Marvin Schlachter, Nicky Siano, Judy Weinstein, Robert Williams and Earl Young. It also contains a series of specially compiled discographies and a unique collection of more than seventy rare photos.
