Jimmy Ellis, who belted out the dance anthem “Disco Inferno” in the 1970s for the Trammps, died Thursday in South Carolina, the funeral home handling arrangements said.

He was 74.

Ellis’ rich baritone powered the funky Grammy-winning tune from the “Saturday Night Fever” album. It is only second to “The Bodyguard” as the best-selling soundtrack album of all time with sales of 15 million.
