Camel - Summer Lightning (brilliant song by the way, excellent keys and guitarsolo, stellar drumming). If all disco was like this, I'd be a disco-fan.

Yep, I remember well those shots of Waters, Gilmour, Wright, and Mason in their Afro hairdos, jiving away to the funky beat......

If you consider the Rolling Stones a "mainstream prog band" I sincerely recommend you to acquaint yourself with the basics of prog Stern Smile.

I know many Magma fans despise this album, but I think it's pretty damn cool.

the first track of "Merci" is simply horrible, which is the main reason I don't like it.

I always considered a great part of Magma's "Retrospektiw 3" as "Magma Goes Disco", by the way

I don't know how accurate my addition to this thread might be, but I really adore Lisa Dal Bello (Dalbello)'s 1977 album featuring Marc Porcaro, Jeff Porcaro, Steve Lukather, David Paich and David Hungate of Toto fame. The album has been labeled as disco, however, I think it is more of a pop/funk/soul album. Well, disco and soul music have a lot in common actually :)

The opening of Gentle Giant's "Way of Life" is very disco before there was disco
