Article on WLRN – Seven Essential Tracks From Miami’s Disco Heyday
Arielle Castillo writes a very nice article on the WLRN website today, May 31, 2013. She picks out seven great tracks from Henry Stone’s TK Disco in the 1970s.
“Not only did Miami have a disco sound — one influenced heavily, unsurprisingly, by Latin percussion and funk — the city had a full-on disco music industry going. That came courtesy of Henry Stone and the labels under his TK Records umbrella, all becoming so influential that HistoryMiami is now creating a special collection devoted to it.
Miami New Times reported fully on the new project last week, when they announced the creation of the Henry Stone Collection. HistoryMiami, after all, is taking over the larger Miami Art Museum space when the art museum moves to the forthcoming Museum Park. That means more room for exhibits and archival collections about relatively recent history.”
