about this item

Beginning early in the 1980s, a dance music revolution swept across Europe and Britain, merging rock, new wave, disco and worldbeat sounds. The resulting explosion of high-energy, increasingly electronic dance-pop caused a sensation worldwide. In this book of original interviews, 32 of the era’s most celebrated artists, producers and industry professionals discuss their lives and careers: Thomas Anders (Modern Talking’s “You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul”), Pete Burns (Dead or Alive’s “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)”), Desireless (“Voyage Voyage”), Phil Harding (PWL Mixmaster), Junior (“Mama Used to Say”), Leee John (Imagination’s “Just an Illusion”), Liz Mitchell (Boney M.’s 1988 “Megamix”), Fab Morvan (Milli Vanilli’s “Girl You Know It’s True”), Taco (“Putting On the Ritz”), Jennifer Rush (“The Power of Love”), Sabrina (“Boys”), Spagna (“Call Me”), Amii Stewart (“Knock on Wood”), Yazz (“The Only Way Is Up”) and many more. Includes special commentary by Academy Award winner Mel Brooks and Audrey Landers, star of Dallas.
