Opening with David Mancuso’s seminal Love Saves the Day Valentine’s party, Tim Lawrence tells the definitive story of American dance music culture in the 1970s-from its subterranean roots in NoHo and Hell’s Kitchen to its gaudy blossoming in midtown Manhattan to its wildfire transmission through America’s suburbs and urban hotspots such as Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Newark, and Miami. Tales of nocturnal journeys, radical music making, and polymorphous sexuality flow through the arteries of Love Saves the Day like hot liquid vinyl.

In Love Saves the Day, Tim Lawrence faithfully documents the accurate record of an exciting musical and subcultural journey, rescuing it from any diminished status as either an unfortunate glitch in the rock 'n' roll journey, or hokey nostalgia. From the late 1960s, weekly parties in David Mancuso's Soho Manhattan loft saw Blacks, Italian-Americans, and ly male, mostly gay-dancing to soul and funk records at all-night parties that would reach a kind of frenzied nirvana.

Thank you Tim Lawrence. This book is the antedote to all the haters out there who still believe that "Disco Sucks" after the post-Comiskey Park backlash. This book is such an amazing and wonderfully readable document that I would recommend anyone interested in 20th century American musical history, or the [...]/black urban experience of the 1970's, or relatively recent New York history read it. Of course if you're interested in disco music or dance music the book is absolutely essential.

This book goes much deeper than the usual Studio 54 cliches that people associate with the genre (although Studio 54 is included, of course) and discusses the origins of the sound and the largely unhearalded people who made this scene happen. David Mancuso is described as a pivotable person here, and the folks who were there will confirm it. The book begins in his legendary club, The Loft, and lovingly details his obsession with sound and the disco experience. Other innovators from the early 70's are also featured including Francis Grasso, Steve D'Acquisto, Bob Casey, and many more. The scene is chronicaled from humble beginnings through the glory years of the mid 70's and ends the decade with the backlash in full swing in mainstream culture but continuing to thrive in clubs like Paradise Garage and Better Days. Along the way you meet producers like Walter Gibbons and Tom Moulton who made some of the classic recordings of the era, and Lawrence takes the time to explain what is so remarkable about their work. You also get delightfully naughty stories about some of the key players in the scene including DJ's, artists, and of course, the patrons that illustrate some of the excesses of the time . Personally, I think that it's this superb combination of detailed research and bitchy gossip that makes the book so thoroughly readable and fun.

I loved reading this book; the only drawback for me was that I couldn't help pining for the days when New York club culture was this incredible before AIDS and Rudy Guilliani conspired to very nearly kill it off (fortunately they weren't entirely successful).

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Not only is this important narrative non-fiction that blends music history, sociology and politics, it's a total blast. I came of age in the 70's yet was never a huge fan of dance music or disco at the time. I wish I had paid more attention because after reading LOVE SAVES THE DAY, I clearly felt like I missed something really special. The development of the story from the earliest discotheques of the mid 60's in midtown Manhattan grew the inevitable birth of discos in the 70's where gays, straights, blacks, Latinos and whites got all mixed together with the magic elixir of dance music. For the most part it didn't matter who you were or where you came from in the pulsating, hot, hedonistic dance clubs of downtown and midtown, that quickly spread all over America and the world. Many of the key dj's are sadly no longer with us but their legacy will live forever in this marvelous book.

Love Saves the Day book is a good book to read if you want to know how Dance Music Culture came in to being established.
Right after I was born, technology was revolving for Dance Clubs. The Dance Clubs were in the process of standardizing using Bozak Preamp Mixer, Three Belt Drive Turntables, Cassette Deck, Open reel tape machine, Active crossovers, Graphic and Parametric Equalizers, three racks full of amplifiers and stacks of speakers. Very fascinating and interesting book to read.

My only complain with the book is that it's dry, historical focus robs it of much of the cultural criticism and readings that it could contain, although there are moments--e.g. "the interpretation of [Donna] Summer's oooh and aahs" and its relation to the liberation of female sexuality in comparison to songs like Gainsbourg's "Je T'aime...Moi Non Plus" on p173-174, or the explication of the cultural import of Saturday Night Fever on p307.

This book is very tempting : I mean, I read it months ago and at that time, wished that it would never end (I'm dedicated to pleasure, I'm afraid);
but it did.
So, now & again, I grab it & try to get more substance from it, be it the souvenir of the thrills I once got, at night, in bed.
I learned and connected lots of things from this era, I dived into 70's high-class disco sounds head-first because of Arthur Russell and this book, the story of David Mancuso, Nicky Siano, Larry Levan, the magnificent Walter Gibbons, Bob Blank (wizzard) and oh ! all the ItaloAmericans who dedicated their talent and enthusiasm to giving pleasure vibes to people on improvised dancefloors, the love vibes, the sensual surroundings of it all, the nonstop motion which motor was love, party, get high, love again ! Reading, I was completely taken by that part of contemporary social/musical history. Said Robert Fripp about disco music : "now people are going to vote with their feet". So thanks Tim Lawrence, bless you.
