Disco Nights is the debut album by American soul/disco group GQ, released in 1979 on the Arista label. The lead single "Disco Nights (Rock Freak)" was a major crossover hit, topping the R&B chart and peaking at #12 on the pop chart. The follow-up, a cover of Billy Stewart's 1965 classic "I Do Love You", also made the R&B top 5 and the pop top 20. On the back of its hit singles, the album became a big seller. It reached #2 R&B and #13 pop and was certified Platinum (one million copies shipped) by the RIAA.


This album should not be confused with a later GQ compilation of the same name, and with a similar cover image. (The Allmusic website confuses the two, containing a review of the original album but the track listing and cover art of the compilation.)
