Format: Audio CD
This is a brilliant double album that covers two important periods in the history of house music. The early days (circa. 1980) with the tracks that influenced and led to house as we know it. The second is a collection of early house from 1990ish. Some tracks you will know, others you won't, but they are all good.
This album is an education for anyone who is prepared to give it a chance.
A brilliant album without a bad track.
6 stars to Frankie!

What more can be said about Frankie Knuckles. Growing up in Chicago during the (radio station) WBMX era, Frankie's was a household name. This cd set further demonstrates how that was possible. Not only was the sequencing of the songs brilliant but the mixing was right on -- especially on Disc One (where he has the unenviable task of beat matching disco records: that usually involves live instruments). Old School Househeads will really enjoy this double set!

Jewels from Frankie's Box of 12" Treasures 11 Nov 2000
By ROBERT H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
While I liked the late 70s & early 80s stuff on the first CD in this mix collection, I thought the second CD was inspired. DJs should listen to this to escape the non-stop, relentless gallop that makes their mixes a bore. Frankie Knuckles seems to know how to program the later music from the 90s with all the expertise of a great maestro of the dance floor, plus it makes for fine listening on it's own. For those who like a slow burn groove and terrific vocals.

Collection of Classics by Frankie Knuckles 18 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Being a DJ myself and from the old school Chicago deep house/underground scene, I really enjoyed the 1st CDs compilation of classical underground music. I haven't heard anyone play this type of house since the mid 80s to early 90s. The 2nd CD is nice as well but I prefer the 1st. Its outstanding to see a Chicago DJ from that era capture the essence of that era and share it with world. I'd like to see Lil Louis, Terry Hunter, Ron Trent, Boo Williams, and Ron Carroll produce a mix of the classics similiar to this one to reflect their respective styles. I understand the music has evolved and I like the new underground/garage house the DJs are playing, but I would like to hear a vault of all the old school Chicago deep/underground house music.

Godfathers taste 21 Aug 2003
By Patrick Schaub - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is not much to say regarding this collection: If you know Frankie, the godfather of house, you definitely know you can trust him and his dj-experience since the 70's about what's HOT and what's NOT. - Worth purchasing if you are into deep (house),classics and disco.

Takes you back to the true meaning of house music! 3 April 2002
By Darrin Lowery, Author - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There is dance music out there and then there is inspirational muisc out there and there is also feel good music out there. This Album takes you back, to what house music is all about; Feel good, inspirational, sould stirring dance music. This CD was truly a joy for me! I bought a new system just for my house music and there is very little house music that has not been inspired by the GODFATHER of house music, Frankie Knuckles!. I am from Chicago, where it started, I was there at the beginning,I was there when New York took it to the next level, and I am happy that they carry the torch overseas, I Love this CD!
