5.0 out of 5 stars Second of two great compilations of seventies disco music
At the time of its original release, this was a TV-advertised album that sold in huge quantities in Britain. It brought together many classic tracks from the seventies and early eighties.

Inevitably, Donna Summer (Hot stuff), Gloria Gaynor (Never can say goodbye), KC and the Sunshine Band (That`s the way I like it), Earth Wind and Fire (September), Sister...

This review is from: The Best Disco Album In The World ... Ever! 2 (Audio CD)
At the time of its original release, this was a TV-advertised album that sold in huge quantities in Britain. It brought together many classic tracks from the seventies and early eighties.

Inevitably, Donna Summer (Hot stuff), Gloria Gaynor (Never can say goodbye), KC and the Sunshine Band (That`s the way I like it), Earth Wind and Fire (September), Sister Sledge (We are family), Odyssey (Native New Yorker), Chic (Good times), Village People (In the navy), Rose Royce (Is it love you`re after?) and Real Thing (You to me are everything) are all here, with different tracks from the first volume. Surprisingly, Barry White is missing from this volume.

My personal favorites here are Nights on Broadway (Candi Staton), Best of my love (Emotions) and This is it (Melba Moore), but there's plenty of great music throughout the compilation.

Although long out of print, most of the tracks continue to be re-issued at regular intervals on multi-artist compilations, and some of them can also be found on releases by the individual artists. However, if you enjoy seventies disco music and you have the opportunity to buy this somewhere, you'll love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just for the Record!, 19 July 2005
By 
T J Brown (Lancashire United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Best Disco Album In The World ... Ever! 2 (Audio CD)
It is always difficult to make comparisons, however I feel that this is the better of the two in terms of what was happening in the Discos in the UK. Who can ever forget the pulsating start of the Jacksons 'Can you feel it' as it builds and how much in the mood for dancing it made you feel. Many Disco DJ's of the time began to introduce Funky Music as well and the early 'Classic' from James Brown was to influence many other bands and artists as they developed their own cross over sound like T. Connection and Brass Construction. Disco music continued to fragment and this is covered by the Average White Band Track through to the 'Poppy' based sound of 'More More More' by Andrea True Connection. The 70's was indeed a period in our culture where there was so much diversity and this is why this album hits the spot for me. You get the usual 'fillers' like Carl Douglas, Village People and Boney M tracks but looking back it all formed part of our history and we can all be excused for dancing to these songs now that most of us, who where part of the scene, hit our 50's and even our 60's. One for young or old alike and a timeless collection of such great music and happy days!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Volume Two of the greatest disco album ever, 30 Oct 2003

This review is from: The Best Disco Album In The World ... Ever! 2 (Audio CD)
This 2-disc is the second volume of the series and truly deserves its title. It is packed with the greatest hits of the Disco era in all its diversity, from Eurodisco to Party Funk and Dancepop. The Bee Gees may not directly contribute, but many of the Saturday Night Fever artists like Tavares and Yvonne Elliman are here.
Donna Summer's rock period is represented by Hot Stuff, while established rockers like Rod Stewart were also getting in on the disco act. Early classics like Theme From Shaft (1971) and TSOP (1974) predated disco but sounds just right next to late 1970s classics like Chic's Good Times and Sister Sledge's We Are Family. Amongst the more funky numbers are Oops Upside Your Head and Aint No Stopping Us Now, whilst the good-time party crowd like KC's Sunshine Band and Kool's Gang let rip with That's The Way I Like It and Celebration.
Ma Baker by Boney M and More More More by The Andrea True Connection are great examples of Eurodisco, whilst Odyssey's Native New Yorker, Gloria Gaynor's Never Can Say Goodbye and Yvonne Elliman's If I Can't Have You represent the more soulful side of the genre and Santa Esmeralda/Leroy Gomez infuse it with a Latin feel.
Together with the first volume, these discs provide a window on an era when dance music had lots of personality and ruled the charts in all its tuneful vatiety. It is certainly ironic that disco existed side by side with punk. A few artists like Blondie produced a successful synthesis (Heart Of Glass) although many rockers indulged a bit (Miss You by The Stones and Rod Stewart's track on this album).
This is a great album of ageless songs and ideal for parties.
