Disco was denounced as formulaic, mechanical, contrived, forgettable: all true, but all irrelevant as lights flashed and mirror-balls rotated.
They realized that most disco songs were about as durable as the one-night stands that started on the dance floor, and that it was more sensible (and cheaper) to keep up with the latest songs on the radio, or in the clubs, than to collect them.
Record companies saw sales plummet from 726.2 million albums, singles and tapes in 1978 to 575.6 million in 1982; the Grammy Award category for Best Disco Recording lasted exactly one year (won by Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive") before it was quietly terminated.

Prior to the first live Grammys telecast in 1971 on ABC (CBS bought the rights in 1973 after moving the ceremony to Nashville, Tennessee; the American Music Awards were created for ABC as a result), a series of taped annual specials in the 1960s called The Best on Record were broadcast on NBC.

However, the Grammys, usually held in February, (last of what are considered the big three music awards shows, including the BMA and AMA shows) are considered the approximate equivalent to the Academy Award, in the music world.

I Will Survive disco queen Gloria Gaynor stopped by the WLIW21 PBS studio recently to promote her new CD I Wish You Love and to talk about her extraordinary experience performing in the PBS special Rhythm, Love and Soul.
When I sat down with Gloria, I asked her if she ever thought that her 1979 release of I Will Survive (a B-side song) would have such an impact on popular culture and remain hot on the charts for nearly a quarter of a century.
Gloria's husband's tenacity paid off, because in 1980 I Will Survive won a Grammy award for best disco recording, and has been reproduced in 20 different languages.

 Umbria Jazz 2003 - 30th Anniversary
Nel 1974, a New York conosce il manager Clive Davis, con cui firma per la MGM, ed entra nel mondo della Disco Music incidendo il suo primo Lp "Never Can Say Goodbye" dal quale viene estratto il singolo "Honey Bee ".
L'album è il primo progetto discografico concepito espressamente per i clubs: la sapiente mano del grande Tom Moulton crea un disco senza interruzioni con tutte le canzoni in versione estesa, mixate una dopo l'altra, inventando una nuova forma di album concept che verrà preso a modello da molti producers.
La produzione è affidata a Meco Monardo che curerà anche i due 33 giri successivi, "Experience" (1975) e "I've Got You" (1976): il successo di questi tre album vale a Gloria la corona di "Regina della Disco Music" da parte dell'associazione statunitense dei dj da discoteca.
