Pressestimmen

Echols' love of music, her acumen about popular culture, and her gifts as a leading cultural historian come together in this remarkable book. The book is fascinating, carried along by prose that is as sleek and slinky as its subject. -- Christine Stansell, Stein-Freiler Distinguished Service Professor, The University of Chicago

In this expertly rendered, wide-ranging history of one of pop's most exciting social and musical movements, Alice Echols thoroughly recovers the moment in which disco was born and flowered-a moment of liberation for women, gay men, and not a few straight boys.; of rich experimentation in the studio and behind the DJ decks; and of joyful dancing that broke down all kinds of boundaries. Echols, one of our best chroniclers of how pop creates social change (and is, in turn, inspired by it), gets its vibe because she lived it-and because she can step back from it now and see it whole. -- Ann Powers

Echols aims for—and thoroughly achieves—a range of higher cultural insights. . . . Revelatory.

"Echols's love of music, her acumen about popular culture, and her gifts as a leading cultural historian come together in this remarkable book. The book is fascinating, carried along by prose that is as sleek and slinky as its subject."-Christine Stansell, author of American Moderns"Hot Stuff describes the book as well as its subject: a thoughtful and sophisticated treatment of a significant but much-maligned music."-Tim Taylor, professor, Departments of Ethnomusicology and Musicology, UCLA"Echols aims for-and thoroughly achieves-a range of higher cultural insights. . . . Using encyclopedic knowledge of the eras' biggest stars, she shows how all sorts of musical disco styles played a 'central role' in broadening the contours of 'blackness, femininity, and male homosexuality' in America. . . . Revelatory."-Publishers Weekly"Without question, Alice Echols is one of America's best cultural critics working the beat between popular and academic cultures. With characteristic stylistic verve and scholarly acumen, Echols trolls the edges of our culture's underbelly to discern its central place in politics and economics. In Hot Stuff, she finds disco to be crucial for understanding what happened in 1970s America. Thus invariably, Echols provides a surprising take on familiar scenes by pointing out potholes and pitfalls of late twentieth-century American culture, exploring regions of experience previously overlooked or discounted. Her deepimmersion in the subjects of her research, thorough oral histories, and extensive archival investigation flesh out her absolutely original critical insights."-Paula Rabinowitz, author of Black & White & Noir

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent read! 19. März 2010
Von VC Ouranos - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Echols new book on disco is an engaging, smart read. She brings to life both the political complexities of the time as well as the music and it's many scenes. A brilliant historian and superb storyteller (the book is filled with great anecdotes), Echols' book transcends the usual fare on disco by taking on an in-depth account of how disco both reflected and contributed to the ways that identities of African Americans, gays, and women shifted in these years. A must read for anyone interested in the cultural history of disco and the legacies of 70's social change movements.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great stuff! 6. Juni 2010
Von B. E. Conekin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Lively, readable, yet serious and scholarly, once again, Echols gives us a social and cultural history of America in the 1970s that we all need. This book is a pleasure from the first line to last, with the insets in between, adding a particularly nice touch, as they each focus on a specific song and illustrate its place in an important moment in disco's history. Thoroughly researched, yet a page-turner, Hot Stuff reveals things that some of us assumed, but could never really prove, especially in relation to disco's essential role in an emerging, out gay culture in the USA.
Enjoy! I did!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very interesting observation. 15. Oktober 2013
Von paul k. robertson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Most people tend to recoil at either hearing or reading the word "disco" but this book takes the subject and puts into a very interesting sociological context. It takes the time frame of disco from the mid seventies to its demise in the early eighties and threads disco through its importance in ethnicity, sexual orientation and social class consciousness. Good reading if you either loved disco or hated it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fabulous! 14. September 2012
Von Jessica - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Alice Echols's book on disco's part in the 70s cultural revolution is fantastic. Although each section focuses on a different population (such as women, gay men, and rock fans), she never allows you to forget about the other groups as she goes along, weaving together a complex and intricate view of disco and 1970s culture.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Part music history, part anthropology. All good. 27. Juni 2011
Von All Things Good - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Great overview of before, during and after the disco era.

What it meant socially to different groups, how it changed US culture and values, the lifestyles behind the music, and best of all, the music itself.

Copious footnotes, and even includes a DJ setlist!

Great all-encompassing history of disco, with special focus on disco and GLBT, disco and women, and disco and Black Americans.
