Format: Audio CD
I stumbled upon this recently, now many years after it was originally released, and I am darned happy to have gotten a copy. I only hope this stays in print, because after all this time, there still is no substitute for this amazing collection of songs. The great thing about it is that the party (some guy named Robbins) who put this together knows that people who like funk and soul are going to like disco, too, provided it is the authentic thing. Most everything on here is pre-1976, before it became too machine-like. All the music here maintains the bridges to its funk and soul roots, while still veering off into what became known as `disco.' As far as I'm concerned you can call this disco, but as it says in the liner notes, this is really proto-disco, the authentic thing.

There's no alternative to buy this compilation if you're not owning the originals. It would take ages and cost a lot of money to find all these in any other way. Good sound quality too.

This collection is a goldmine! 17 May 2002
By tehuti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The title of this collection is appropriate. With just a few exceptions these songs very rarely got radio airplay but they wre hot in the clubs. Back in the day I was fortunate enough to be at ground zero - New York City - and I got to hear many of the best music from the disco era by being on the dance floor at various clubs. The songs selected for these two volumes must have been selected by someone who was there. Great liner notes too. If you want to know what music was REALLY being played by the club deejays get this collection.

FLASHBACK CITY!!! 20 July 2003
By lisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is got to be the best CD ever! Out of 20 songs, 18 were some of my favorites back in the day. If your an ex-disco babe like me,(and now a suburban housewife) you'll be hussling in your living room with or without a partner! Gosh, some of these songs were out when I was still in highschool (yes, that long ago!) and this CD made me feel like it was just yesterday that I hussled the night away!

Hot Hot Hot 15 Sept. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're tired of those same old compilations with the same old songs, then this one's for you. All the rare classics that were even hard to get on vinyl when they were out, are here. I caught your act, When the fuel runs out, Date with the rain, and a whole bunch of others, many one hit wonders. Volumes 1 and 2 are both excellent can't wait for the next 2 volumes. This is one of my favorite CD's.

Treasure Chest of Goodies for Disco Fans 8 Mar. 1999
By John L. Hughes, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This excellent 2-volume compilation successfully proves two things: (1) There's more to disco than Donna Summer, KC & The Sunshine Band, The Village People and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack; and (2)Disco is more thrilling when it sticks to its soul and funk roots. The subtitle of the first volume could have been called DISCO 101.
