Review:

Disco: An Encyclopedic Guide To The Cover Art Of Disco approaches the disco aesthetic through the record sleeves of the time, which offer a perfect distillation of what the scene was all about – particularly the funk-infused electro-heavy brand that carried into the 1980s – think beautiful people, inventive graphic design and loveable forays into futurism. Presented by Disco Patrick (honestly) and Patrick Vogt, it’s a large-format book containing over 2,000 album cover designs – hundreds at full size – representing a comprehensive visual history of disco culture. There are also interviews, conducted by Claes “Discoguy” Widlund, with important disco personalities and record label figures, as well as histories, biographies and discographies. And that’s not all – the first 200 orders come with free world exclusive 12? disco single of Sexy Lady by Something Extra (Canada, 1980). (The Editors we-heart.com)

What’s that, you say? You haven’t seen that many disco LP covers? Well, never fear --“Disco: An Encyclopedic Guide to the Cover Art of Disco Records” (Soul Jazz Books) is here. Slated for release on November 30, this large-format book presents full-size reproductions of cover art from the likes of Gloria Gaynor, James Brown, Donna Summer, Grace Jones, Isaac Hayes, Kool and the Gang, and dozens more -- over 2,000 designs in total, plus more than 700 12-inch sleeves. (Anneliese Cooper Artinfo)

You certainly can judge a book by its cover. In this case, Disco: An Encyclopedic Guide to the Cover Art of Disco shows just that. There are covers of records by artists such as Donna Summer, Village People, Teddy Pendergrass and O'Jays as well as lesser-known musicians. Be warned, though: The fashions of that time are on full display, too. (Andrews Davis Windy City Times)

The new book Disco: An Encyclopedic Guide to the Cover Art of Disco Records includes over 2000 (!) album covers from the 70s and 80s, with at least 95 percent of them featuring scantily-clad and/or greased-up female body parts. There are interviews with musicians, designers and producers from the era, and the covers themselves include so many oh-so familiar names like Donna Summer, Chic, Gloria Gaynor, Grace Jones, Isaac Hayes, and Kool and the Gang, as well as hundreds of more obscure acts. (Alissa Walker gizmodo.com)

This is an exquisitely wrapped 360-page piece of eye candy, thanks to Patrick Vogt's fittingly excessive design. (Jake Malooley chicagoreader.com)

Disco: An Encyclopaedic Guide To The Cover Art Of Disco Records is a 360-page hardcover book showcasing more than 2000 album covers and 700 12-inch sleeves from the 1970s through to the mid-'80s―and, with the book measuring 12-inches by 12-inches, some are presented in full size. In addition to the record covers, Disco also includes written chapters on everything from the history of 12-inch sleeves, roller disco, "disco instruction albums" and a scrapbook of advertisements.
