The lead singer of The Trammps – Jimmy Ellis died on Thursday 8th March 2012 aged 74.
The Trammps were a Philadelphia based group formed in the 70’s who had numerous hits in the disco era. Most famously they were featured in the sound track of Saturday Night Fever featuring John Travolta, with their most successful hit Disco Inferno.
Here are a few of my favourite YouTube clips of their songs – enjoy!
Back to a time when I used to record the Top 40 onto cassette – you had to be quick with the stop button to cut out the DJ talking or edit the tape cut cutting it and splicing it back together with stick tape!
