Disco Inferno was originally released from The Trammps in 1976, which reached #16 in England. Tina performed the song live in her early solo concerts, but never recorded a studio version, until 1993 for the soundtrack album What's Love Got To Do With It. Released as the second single in the UK, the single charted four places higher than The Trammps version. The song was also on the setlist for her What's Love? Tour, but unfortunately Tina performed it only at opening night in Reno. A live version from her early concerts is available on the Wild Lady of Rock home video from 1979.
The music video was filmed like a live video with Tina on stage of her What’s Love? Tour, together with her female dancers and the band. But in fact, only a few scenes are really live, most of the time there is no audience present and Tina is lip syncing the song, dressed in a black trouser and top. In between, many scenes from the movie are shown and at the beginning and at the end we see Tina backstage. Unfortunately, the clip was never officially released on home video.
Released in July 1993 in England from Parlophone Records on 7“ & 12“ vinyl, cassette and 5“ CD, Disco Inferno reached #12 in England and #38 in Europe. The single was not released in Germany and America.
