This 1978 book is written by Roy Madrid, “The Disco King,” who “aided” in teaching John Travolta the couples disco dancing in SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER as the carefully worded bio tells us. The concept that someone would buy a book to learn how to disco is sort of mind-boggling.
The bio also helpfully provides Madrid’s home address including the specific apartment in his Marina Del Rey condo. Do you think Roy was trying to hook up or just get some more clients?
The photos are great– the disco couple is a Karen Lynn Gorney wannabe and a blown-dry, terminally white guy inexplicably wearing a gingham shirt that would look more appropriate at a barn dance than a disco.
The book is full of all sorts of claims such as disco dancing produces more oxygen in your blood, and that can mean,”that your skin will clear up, your hair will be shinier and your stamina will increase… and we all know what important activity is affected by increased stamina!!!” (The three exclamation marks speak volumes, no?)
