1. Watch 60 Minutes
    Story on Disco Music
    From 1978 (VIDEO).

    Dan Rather explains the disco phenomenon to 60 Minutes ‘s viewers in 1978. Besides the requisite footage of Studio 54 and record store racks full of pristine vinyl, there’s a very cool step-by-step breakdown of an overdub session for Peter Brown’s “Dance With Me” featuring Betty Wright (as in “Tonight’s the Night like…”) on back-up vocals. But maybe most interesting is the piece’s exploration into the importance of the studio mixer and club DJ within the then-thriving industry.
