As a retired DJ, I cannot possibly count how many records I have played, for every audience. This album, is probably the quintessential dance album for music from 1977-1981. The choices made for this compilation are not just excellent. They are beyond reproach. All full length versions, thank goodness.
Track 1 sees Dan Hatman's Vertigo/Relight my fire...and a better introduction to a dancefloor classic would be hard to find.
Track 2, Tamiko Jomes' Can't live without your love is a pearl of a song.I could write like this forever...but will just indulge you in 4 more of the tracks..for very special mentions.
Track 5 GQ-Disco Nights...a funky rumbler that twists and turns in every direction...This 12" remix is probably near to being perfect. The "cascade" waterfall sound sets it up..and rolls you along.
Track 8 , Francine McGee's Delirium is about as disco(in the accepted sense) as I am a giant panda..but this album is TRUE disco..not the commercial stuff...forget that...this is where funk, jazz, dance, disco, combine. This track is THE track for understanding why we all sweated so much in dingy disco's in the late 70's. If you didn't want to dance...listening to this was very infectious indeed. The keyboard jazz-funk half way through is exceptionally brilliant.
Track 10 Shame..Evelyn "Champagne" King...from the very first beat...that first stuttering clomp...this is probably the smoothest dance track of all time. Wonderful voice, great guitar riffs, and the crowning glory, a 40 sec Saxophone break that is like heaven, it moves you, it wails and it cries..and it explodes rythmically upon you. This track is the smoothest of Malt Whisky, La Creme de La Creme of disco.
Finally Track 11. T-Connection's Do what you wanna do.

This is one of my favorite discs. The title "Classic Disco" is generally a cue for one to start puking at tired old songs. Not this one.
The guys at Mastercuts compiled this with care. Definitely in the disco spirit, but this album really collects top notch tracks, few of which are the same-old, same-old obvious tracks. 11 of the 12 songs are full 12" mixes also, some of them rare. So its one for the true collectors and dance music lovers.
My favorite is the Sylvester song "I Need You". Tracy Weber's sure shot, is another nice one, provided here as a Larry Levan 12" mix.
Most of all, this album just fits together seamlessly. The tracks are not mixed/faded, but they flow seamelesly in spirit. You put it on and you could be hearing a live DJ mix.
Highly recommended for all disco fans and folks who want to explore some of the precursors of garage music (ie early 1980's post-disco/pre-house music).

I bought this just to have a CD copy of Dan Hartman's fabulous Disco classic. Must say the other songs stand up nicely to it. My favourite isn't even Dan anymore - think it's the T-Connection at the moment... Top collection all round

Classic Disco Volume 1 in the Mastercuts series is one of the most unbuttoned, full-on disco compilations. In fact the word compilation suggests all the wrong things - it it a hardcore, intense sonic experience that doesn't let up, and hits a deep vibe right from Dan Hartman's opening Vertigo/Relight My Fire. Loleatta Holloway's vocal surprises you every time you hear it for its sheer blasting intensity. Can't Live Without Your Love has a sexy vocal delivery that percolates through the driving rhythm, but not in a posy, coy way - it is too in the moment for that. Sylvester's number has his trademark brilliance set in a gay farrago of colour and swirling harmonies. The sound is quite harsh and fully immediate, as if you can see the vinyl spinning in the club behind the glistening torsos ... And what clarity in the horns in Jackie Moore's This Time Baby - those harmonies just whisk you into a frenzy, her vocal served like a stiff cream piped into shape.

This is the only disco album I know to come close to the Ministry Of Sound's release, Disco Classics, but this one mines a more alternative groove. The instrumental riffs are always good, playful but driven. Delirium is a fast and fierce instrumental, boogying maniacally, and the middle part of the T-Connection song is also brilliant. Casanova is a bit less good, sounding just a tiny bit unpolished and not quite taking off as a melody. But Shame takes us right back to the best - it never quite settles, a moth going from one disco light to another, but Evelyn "Champagne" King really knows how to bring out the variety in the moth's muted colours as it darts furrily. Altogether the disc can be highly recommended for those that like disco at its most vital and creative, ending with the fabulous, strident, but thin vocal of I Hear Music In The Street from Unlimited Touch.
