Rick Dees has taken a lot of flack from purists, and his Disco Duck record has even been pointed out as one of the reasons for the Disco Demolition event. I personally don’t think all that hate is justified, because if you look around you can see that he has a larger disco output than that one gimmicky record, and the quality of some of it proves that he must have taken what he was doing seriously. At least to some extent. Ok, no further need to glorify the man….here is an example of what i’m talking about.

And just for the record, I would rather put on the Disco Duck than a Gloria Gaynor record – anytime.
