Disco? Disco.

I've always had a soft spot for good disco music. Growing up listening to my parents' ABBA records paved the way for an appreciation of Donna Summer and Kool and the Gang, among others. More recently, groups like Scissor Sisters and the Rapture have incorporated elements of dance music some would regard as good ol' disco, and now Sally Shapiro has attempted to help resurrect the much adored/despised genre back with her 2006 album Disco Romance. Not much is known about Ms. Shapiro (she does few interviews and almost nil publicity) but I managed to discover that she's shy, doesn't play live, and Sally Shapiro isn't her real name. Oh Sally . . .
