In 1975 Eurodisco exploded with Giorgio Moroder and Donna Summer's multi-orgasmic 17-minute "Love To Love You Baby". The genre was a producer's medium, complete with concept albums, symphonic and synthetic instrumentation, theatrical conceits, confrontational LP sleeves, and other progressive-rock trappings tied to a steady, often speedy pulse.
The acts, including Silver Convention ("Fly, Robin, Fly") and the Ritchie Family, were studio creations that often changed members. Yet if producers like Cerrone and Alec Costandinos wowed the cognoscenti, Eurodisco achieved its greatest pop success when fronted by sexy Americans like Summer and Jacques Morali's Village People.
