A few years ago someone offered Dutch DJ Ben Liebrand the opportunity to compile a collection of his favourite dance records. Putting together a collection of the tracks that inspired him and add in some which had something special about them. Liebrand decided to get the definitive masters in order to produce the best sound possible. Via his website he explains both the choice and, where necessary, what the version included contains.

Musically this is a mixed bag focusing heavily on the music of the disco era and some electronic classics. The sound quality is execptional and they are all presented in full length versions. Designed to appeal to more than the casual listener they are still an absolute bargain price as there's 4 discs worth of stuff here.

The choices range from the classic to the rather underground. Anyone who followed disco and what happend after closely will probably be familiar with the likes of a 12" versions of "I Feel Love", "Good Times", "Funky Town", "You Make Feel (Mighty Real)", "I.O.U", and "Shake Your Body" (by The Jacksons), but it's all in pristine sound quality.

There are also some lesser known gems such as Donna Summer producer Giorgio Moroder's "Chase", from the film "Midnight Express", which is a brilliant piece of electronica. As well as this there is "The Break" by Kat Mandu which sounds familiar whilst not being so. It's a track that builds and builds.

The first 3 discs rather neatly cover late 70's and early 80's soul, disco, electronic dance whereas disc 4 takes a different approach adding some later pieces and also some things such as Yazoo, New Order, and Frankie Goes To Hollywood which were danced to in clubs but weren't really the kind of acts you went to hear.

This is the first volume in a series that has reached volume 10 and is still going strong! The success of this series is down to two things: Ben Liebrand's knowledge of music and the sound quality of the recordings. For those not in the know, Ben was (and is) a legendary DJ and producer across Europe. As such, the tracks presented here cross many genres in the way that continental dance music does; i.e. it's less 'purist' or compartmentalised then the UK or US approach their music. This is a charm of the series - some would call it eclectic, but it's really disco, boogie (eighties groove), electro, high energy (boystown), house and euro-disco.

For the eighties groovers out there, Ben really knows his stuff and was kicking it back in the day. So we get his re-edits of massive D-Train and Sharon Redd twelves - worth the price of admission alone for their boogie purism. Nobody back in the day was playing the vocals on these (take note MoS compilers), but the instrumentals could also clear a floor of less dedicated dancers. So these edits really are the best - afaik Ben was doing this live back then too. Ditto for Yazzo's massive (US) club hit which has a great into in Ben's edit.

This collection is also notable for the inclusion of the full ORIGINAL 12" version of Blue Monday, and not the god-aweful 'remix' issued a few years later that's now played everywhere. Newbies may also be shocked to hear Rick James' Super Freak in full 12" glory without "you can't touch this" rapped over the top. Extra points also for the full versions of 'I Feel Love' and 'Rapper's Delight'.

There are a couple of minor glitches: As someone mentioned Sylvester's YMMFMR is not the 12" version.
