Now it can be told! The true, behind-the-scenes story of Casablanca Records, from an eyewitness to the excess and insanity. Casablanca was not a product of the 1970s, it was the 1970s. From 1974 to 1980, the landscape of American culture was a banquet of hedonism and self-indulgence, and no person or company in that era of narcissism and druggy gluttony was more emblematic of the times than Casablanca Records and its magnetic founder, Neil Bogart. "And Party Every Day" is a frontline look at the record label that exploded onto the 1970s music scene, rising faster, burning brighter, and crashing in a more spectacular fashion than any other label in history. From Bogart's daring first signing, the positively pyrotechnic "Kiss", through the discovery and superstardom of Donna Summer and the Village People - not to mention extraterrestrial funk master George Clinton and his circus of freaks, Parliament Funkadelic - to the descent into the manic world of disco and its attendant vices, this book charts Bogart's meteoric success and eventual collapse under the weight of uncontrolled ego and hype. A compelling tale of ambition, greed, excess, and some of the era's most biggest music acts. Written with great candour and humour by Larry Harris, Casablanca's co-founder and former senior vice president and managing director, "And Party Every Day" is the only definitive and firsthand look at Casablanca's remarkable story, and a breathtaking view of that great American era of extravagance. It includes dozens of never-before-seen photos and a complete discography.
