FlinterFile: The Ritchie Family- The Best Disco In Town
In 1976, soul changed into disco. Ritchie Rome, a producer, was helping the Philadelphia music scene to change to disco. With two members of Honey & the Bees, a Philly group, he made the Ritchie Family. The writer of one of their biggest hits was Phil Hurtt, who normally wrote about more difficult subjects. For this, he wrote an easy song, with a medley of different songs, which was sung by the backing vocalists. During the production of the album, the producers got the idea for the concept of the Village People. This song was a number 17 hit in the US. Enjoy
