THE SCENE IN THE 70'S OUTSIDE OF NEW YORK



I often wonder after reading so many articles about the disco scene, that the place that is almost always mentioned is New York..

It was brought to my attention by the owner of this site.

Havivg been there during that time, and also traveling to other cities, I think I have a fair knowledge of why this was happening.

To begin with,the disco movement is usually credited to have been established in NY. It was the place where the first record pool was started as well as some major clubs.

Also, The Pines and Grove in Fire Island, long associated with the Disco movement, is where all NYC residents went for the summer. Also most of the record labels were located here. Finally the magazine of record, Billboard, was from Manhattan.

It was not until the disco column and section was created, that other areas started to get their due. Other areas like S.F. and L.A. where certainly amongst the other cities to get noticed first.

Chicago got its reputation with Frankie Knuckles and "House" Music.

So I believe that because NYC was the mecca of so many important events it was always mentioned. Any reader out there that has other info on this subject is certainly welcome to submit it to Discoguy at this site. I hope I have cleared this up to a degree.
