idk if i'm really getting what you're getting at; those three examples seem really disparate to me. like; i get the whole disco influenced 70s rock thing, but that second one doesn't really scream that to me. the first one is kinda into that but i feel like there's more explicit mixing of that stuff too. and the last one just seems like the post-kraftwerk space rock thing. like i feel like each of these example bands were working in different genres and that like the overlap between the first two is certainly disco but i feel like it's pretty light in there anyways so are you meaning the kinda middle of the road disco era rock?

it makes more sense if you don't think of them as individual pieces but part of a larger mix. all the best djs of the era were playing music that didn't necessarily neatly fit into the category of "disco," but I think in the larger conversation of disco's influence on rock, there are certain trends worth pinning down and focusing on a little more closely, and I'm sure I'm not the first person to notice this particular niche.

Also, if it's worth mentioning, that Rockets project was masterminded by Tom Moulton.
