In times of depression, austerity, recession and uncertainty people will always look to basic staples to find peace, reassurance, relaxation, fun and at times inspiration. This is why we find many more people turn to religion and family or perhaps even food and of course music.
During the recession of the mid to late 1970’s the world was also in the grip of financial uncertainty and poverty. There was hunger, power shortages, industrial unrest and political agitation. Amidst all of this the world was also in the grip of something else; DISCO. Up and down the land people flocked to dance clubs and discotheques to forget all of their troubles, have fun and dance the night away. People dressed in their finest funky clothes and went for a night filled with music, laughter and sheer happiness.
