The band's first major success was with their 1972 cover version of 'Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart'. The first disco track they released was 'Love Epidemic' in 1973. However, they are best known for their 1976 Grammy winning song, 'Disco Inferno'. The music journalist, Ron Wynn, noted 'the Trammps' prowess can't be measured by chart popularity; Ellis' booming, joyous vocals brilliantly championed the celebratory fervor and atmosphere that made disco both loved and hated among music fans.'
