Ma la loro fama deriva dal singolo “Disco Inferno” (1976), che fu incluso nell’album Saturday Night Fever uscito nel 1977.

”Save a place in your heart for me, if it’s not too late, i’m comin’ on…”
There’s a message in the music.

Review (For the re-issue set):
Here is a cool 13-cut overview of the Trammps as one of Philly's crackerjack disco-funk ensembles that features the best of their dancefloor singles. The sound is good if not great, but the track selection is worth the price. The set has tunes from 1972 to 1978 and includes "Trammps Disco Theme," "Oh Waa Hey," "Love Epidemic," "Stop and Think," and both versions of "Where Do We Go from Here."
