I will take a guess though it could be wrong.

I think it might have been the Bee Gees once Saturday Night Fever was released.

Donna Summer had a great 1977-78. Michael Jackson in 81-82 was pretty good. As to exact number, got to find someone into that stuff. was never a big priority to me. I was just the juke box!

CHULO! DIGAME!
It depends on what defines a hit. A Disco Hit? A Radio Hit? A sales hit? I agree all 3 count. I consider "STARCHILD" by Level 42 a hit even though it didn't sell gatz, didn't chart well, and maybe 4 radio stations played it across the USA; Many clubs in NYC played it and it was TO ME, a hit.

There are a couple of (in my mind) Hall Of Fame artists that had some career defining runs---->2-3 years in a row that everything they put out was a dance club smash!
The artists that immedietly come to mind are: The Trammps, Donna Summer, Michael Jackson/The Jacksons, Prince, Salsoul Orch., and Madonna. There are many more that had mini-runs (BeeGees, Tavares, O'Jays, Teddy Pendergrass, Kid Creole)

But I looked in the book-->BILLBOARD HOT DANCE/DISCO 1974-2003 by Joel Whitburn and the Top Artists from '74-79 are:

1. Donna Summer
2. The Trammps
and (surprise surprise)
3. The Ritchie Family

followed by Gloria Gaynor, Salsoul Orch., Vickie Sue Robinson, T-Connection, Silver Bird/Silver Convention, Chic, and Carol Douglas rounding out the top 10.

Who had the most in 1 year? I'm gonna read the book and start counting!!!

Think back, never mind the charts. If you lived anywhere that resembled a CITY, not a farm in Idaho or Montana. Or a sheep ranch in Ireland. You had to have some Barry White in your record collection. It was a rule!! An amendment to your Civil Rights! U.S. Constitutional Bill # 1973-BW, YOU HAD TO OWN SOME BARRY WHITE! Violations punishable by 90 days in the County Disco, listening to a never-ending loop of all of the Maestro and LOVE UNLIMITED's hits!! That was really not punishment, but more like a brainwashing!! If you wanted to get laid, you had to have some Barry White!!

I was fortunate enough to get this promo from Billy Smith (20th Century). It is a quick compilation of Barry's hits--all long club mixes--all segued together. 7 songs altogether--3 on side 'A' and 4 on side 'B'.

They were subtly (I know I can't spell--so what?) mixed differently than the album versions: "CAN'T GET ENOUGH" & "YOU'RE THE FIRST..." had more bongos in the mix; "I'M GONNA LOVE YOU JUST A LIL MORE" has a different intro; all the tracks are slightly different & longer than the LP versions. (There were no 12" of Barry at this time)

During this time (early '75) Gloria Gaynor was the rage, having an LP that goes all the way thru. (before Donna) And I guess Barry & 20th Century wanted to do that also. The compilation was never released.

Then Jay,
You have a rare record. Of course, I will no longer speak to you!! After All My Nic-name is THE VYNIL JUNKIE!! I don't have it, you do! Seriously, that is worth plenty of money. Put it away in a safe place, take pictures of it first though, and put it on eBay, let the bidding begin. I will start it off, $10 plus a couple of record sleeves, an empty pack of 1.5, and condoms, opened, but never used from STUDIO 54. Deal??!!

To answer Disco T's question about it being Barry. The answer is no.
Barry White had 2 big hits in '73:
"I'M GONNA LOVE YOU JUST A LITTLE MORE BABY"
"NEVER EVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP"
1974:
"HONEY PLEASE CAN'T YOU SEE"
"CAN'T GET ENOUGH"
"YOU'RE THE FIRST, MY LAST, MY EVERYTHING"
"SATIN SOUL" (Love Unlimited Orch)
1976:
"MY SUITE SUMMER SUITE"(Love Unlimited Orch.)
1977:
"IT'S ECSTASY WHEN YOU LAY DOWN NEXT TO ME"

Those were his monster Top 10 Disco hits. And they were monsters. No doubt we played others that he had. "Let The Music Play" was one that Pete played alot. He also had alot of different productions with Gene Page, Gloria Scott & Love Unlimited that were hot.

:oops: That's why you're my partner and the moderator.
My memory is good, but not that good. I forgot probably one of the biggest selling ones--->"Loves Theme" was #1 on the Top 40 chart, the R&B chart, in addition to #1 Disco Hit!!!! My Goodness J-ski!!!!!

Michael Jackson had a couple of pretty great years in the early eighties, didn't he? When he was still young and Black, and normal. Hell, he was Human! Remember Don't Stop Til You Get Enough & You wanna be starting something. Off The Wall, Thriller, and on and on. Good year or three!!

Michael was on a MF roll---thas my voice of the era---everything he touched turned to gold---from '76-'85--->that's a 10 year run. Let's check it:

"FOREVER CAME TODAY"*
"MIRRORS OF MY MIND"
"SHOW YOU THE WAY TO GO"*
"BLAME IT ON THE BOOGIE"*
"SHAKE YOUR BODY DOWN TO THE GROUND"*
"DON'T STOP TILL YOU GET ENOUGH"
"ROCK WITH YOU"
"OFF THE WALL"
"WALK RIGHT NOW"
"HEARTBREAK HOTEL"*
"LOVELY ONE"*
"CAN YOU FEEL IT"*
"WANNA BE STARTING SOMETHING"
"BILLY JEAN"
"THRILLER"
"P.Y.T."
"TELL ME THAT I'M DREAMING"
"BAD"
"SMOOTH CRIMINAL"

* - as a member of The Jacksons

ALL CLUB CUTS---not countin the slow stuff he did! WOW!
The last 2 on the list were from '87 so it's past 10 yrs!
Did I miss any?? I did this one from memory. (book's at home)
