Okay, how about all the other one-hit-wonder disco artists?

Van McCoy - brilliant philly producer with a string of great albums.

The Trammps - one of the top artists in philadelphia at the time.

Labelle - Patti LaBelle had a string of brilliant Electric Boogie records in the eighties.

Chic - obviously.

A Taste of Honey - fairly potent soul.

and a multi-hit wonder deserving a number all of his own:

9. Barry White - it's ridiculous that the creator of disco, producer supreme, writer of some of the hottest dance tracks ever has been reduced to a singer of smoochy love songs in the popular imagination.
