Hate reviewing albums as it is so subjective... one man's meat and all that. Bought this on the strength of a couple of tracks I knew about. The rest is OK but not my style. Production excellent but I should have done a bit more reserarch. Would fully expect that someone else might love it all

I think my heading really sums this up, but I will say a bit more to explain why...

The main problem here is the song selections - they are just down right dull and totally un-inspiring. To make matters worse, the intros to most of the tracks have been extended on - and on - and on - and on.... and they go nowhere! You think it's gonna build up into some huge disco monster, but at 3:46, the intro is still just plodding along and still going nowhere. The tracks sound like the sort of boring holding music that you get to listen to on the phone when you're waiting to pay your overdue gas bill, only they actually sound BETTER down the phone! Which brings me to my next point...

The production. The sound is very synthetic, very mid-range and very 80's. It's totally devoid of what is behind good disco - soul! There is no punch or guts to the production on these tracks, with a couple of exceptions:

I'm giving this release 1 star for the following:

"I'm a Love Bug" by Donna McGhee, which is a great track though I had it already on one of the Deep Disco Culture releases. The production on the Ashley Beedle edit is actually very good and does have a lot more clarity and punch than the Deep Disco Culture version (which was probably taken straight from the vinyl).

"Whatcha Gonna Do" by Heaven & Hell, which is also a great track, but again I already had this on one of the Tom Moulton Philly Re-Grooved albums (yes, Tom Moulton. Therefore, no further re-mixes required - it would be like re-making Star Wars).

"Touch Sensitive" by The Fall. The Fall are just a great band, but this great track just sounds out of place in this selection.

I can understand why previous reviewers have either been thumbs up or thumbs down! This compilation of re-edits is worthwhile but as with most double albums the quality and interest is difficut to maintain across both discs.
I will just deal with the 4 standouts:
New York Port Authority - "Rainbow" - a little known album track on the Invictus label that is simply sublime in the new version.
Ace - "All That I Need" - blue eyed soul gem from Paul Carrack that hits the right groove.
Gene Chandler - "All About The Paper" - Chi sound soul at its peak with superb instrumentation especially in the break.
Heaven 'n' Hell - "Whatcha Gonna Do" - worth the purchase price alone. Cantering left field soul/disco. Exquisite.
Overall above average hence the 4 stars!
