CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of audio film review for the newly released “Spinning Gold,” the outrageous 1970s tale of the founding of Casablanca Records by Neil Bogart. Currently in theaters, since March 31st.

The mover and shaker of Casablanca Records was Neil Bogart (Jeremy Jordan), ardently characterized as a mid 20th Century con man, in a sense. After having a minor pop music hit in the 1960s, he joined the record industry later in the decade as a “throw it against the wall and see what sticks” kind of a music maven. When he splits off his own label … Casablanca Records … in the early 1970s, he starts in massive debt but digs it out with a new artist, Donna Summer. (Taya Parx), and a new sound … disco. But he also scored in other music, as Bogart introduced rockers KISS, soul singers Bill Withers (Pink Sweat$) and Gladys Knight (Ledisi), plus funk master George Clinton (Wiz Khalifa) to the universe, and lest we forget, the Village People.
