Consumer Guide Album

A Night at Studio 54 [Casablanca, 1979]
The ultimate disco sampler--all the AM crossovers plus major floor hits. Only sometimes AM can be gross (Cher) and sometimes floor hits are bland (or worse) away from the floor (not to mention on it) (Love and Kisses, Musique, the unspeakable Patrick Juvet). I find even the two usable sides resistible, and miss the Three Degrees' "Steve Rubell Medley": "Walk Right In," "Cocaine Blues," and "Jailhouse Rock." B
