Out of 3 discs there were only 10 hit songs. Has some great songs on it. Takes me back. Great CD works great please good. Wanted a solid compilation of classic Disco songs and this Set delivers. Songs that will bring you back to that classic era of energy and song. If you like disco, this is a great place to start. At the time of its original release, this was a TV-advertised album that sold in huge quantities in Britain.
It brought together many classic tracks from the seventies and early eighties. In some cases, the expected tracks are to be found on the second volume. Perhaps the big surprise is that Boney M are represented by Rasputin and by Ma Baker on the other set, where we would have expected to find Rivers of Babylon and Brown girl in the ring. My personal favorites here are Young hearts run free Candi Staton , Black is black La Belle Epoque and More than a woman Tavares , but there's plenty of great music throughout the compilation.
Although long out of print, most of the tracks continue to be re-issued at regular intervals on multi-artist compilations, and some of them can also be found on releases by the individual artists. However, if you enjoy seventies disco music and you have the opportunity to buy this somewhere, you'll love it. I wouldn't dispute this album title, if considered together with volume 2. This double disc contains a lot of the most commercially successful tracks from the disco era and plenty of classics.
This is essential listening for Disco fanatics but make sure you get Volume 2 as well, since it contains more great classics of the time like Hot Stuff, theme from Shaft, Ma baker and Native New Yorker. When you have both volumes, you can truly claim that you have the best disco albums in the world ever, even though the Bee Gees aren't directly represented. See all reviews.
