Firstly, I must disagree with some of the other reviewers concerning this album. One review considered CD2 much better than CD 1 (and this from a mainstream DJ's point of view), yet CD 1 contains the better known tracks.
For anyone who is remotely interested in late 70's / early 80's funk/dance then this is the CD for you. Classic tracks from a wide range of artists including the great Candi Staton, Evelyn "Champagne" King, Kool and the Gang, Shalamar and McFadden & Whitehead. Add to this the ground breaking sounds of Booker Newberry III, Funkadelic, Cameo and The fatback Bamd. Really, if you can't dance to this little collection of gems then you sure as hell can't dance. But hey it's great to listen to as well. Highly recommended
