 Giorgio Moroder: From Here to Eternity: Pitchfork Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
When I say that uber-producer Giorgio Moroder was the first person to produce an entirely digital LP, it doesn't necessarily mean that his music was "fake"-- in fact, if anything, in light of most of what we listen to, it's a feather in his cap.
Moroder is an interesting case because he sidesteps most "disco sucks" arguments due to the fact that he did write his own stuff, did produce it, and even went to so far as to design much of his studio.
From Here to Eternity was Moroder's third solo LP (after 1972's underrated, if redundantly titled Son of My Father, and 1976's Knights in White Satin), and is a marvel for disco historians, and a perfect nugget of dance music for anyone else.
