Dick Entry for “Alec R. Costandinos”
Alec R. Costandinos’ recording career may have been short-lived, but the Euro-disco producer dominated the disco world during his late-’70s reign. After having made
a name for himself after co-writing Cerrone’s “Love in C Minor” in 1977, Costandinos signed to the French label Barclay where he released his first record as Love and Kisses. This self-titled 1977 LP featured the timeless disco hit “I’ve Found Love (Now That I’ve Found You).” Soon he was releasing hit records on America’s most recognized disco label, Casablanca. Perhaps more importantly, though, he introduced the concept album to dancefloor music with his well-regarded Romeo & Juliet album in 1977, followed by a number of other less successful conceptual efforts. He became best known for “I’ve Found Love,” "Romeo and Juliet," and “Thank God It’s Friday” (the theme song to the movie of the same name), but literally disappeared after a prolific 1977 to 1979 run.
