Hit and miss original house
on 18 October 2003
I'm studying the development of dance music, so obviously there is no better way to do this than by listening to stuff, hence why I got this album, full of original house from the early days between disco and what's been dubbed 'old skool house' of the early 90s.
I know a lot of people describe this period's music as being very soulful, but when comparing it to what came before and what happened afterwards, I find it quite stark, sparse and cold. Many tracks do feel dated (with a ghostbusters theme music feel), but there are others that stand out.
I have heard other songs from this period that are better than those featured on this album.
