Wendy Jane’s Saturday Soul: RIP Singer, Jimmy Ellis, of the Trammps – Disco Inferno

10 Mar

Thanks to my sister Sarah for sending me an article on the passing of Jimmy Ellis, lead singer of the 70’s band, the Trammps, who died on Thursday at the age of 74.  She probably sent it because she remembers when I was 17 I used to tell my parents I was going to a friend’s house, or to the movies, and instead snuck out to the clubs to dance, dance, dance.

The Trammps most famous song was Disco Inferno, which became an instant classic, especially after it was featured in the film, Saturday Night Fever in 1977.


Burn, baby, burn…..
