20 tracks spanning Kool & The Gang's 1973 "Jungle Boogie" through Loose Joint's 1985 "Hangin' On A String" - quite a lot of territory. All tracks are advertised as full 12" or extended versions, but there's no annotation detailing this, and 3 tracks don't even break the 4 minute mark. The emphasis is on string-soaked funk, so we get the usual suspects like Barry White (the 8:30 version of "Strange Games") and Donna Summer (the full 16:47 of "Love To Love You Baby"!), as well as Teena Marie, Dee Dee Sharp, Fatback Band, Eddie Kendricks and Cher (!) The sound is quite clear, although it sounds like a few tracks were mastered from vinyl, and there's a conspicuous lack of grunt in most of the bass (there's no mention of any tracks being remastered). Overall it has a good selection of genuinely classic tracks mixed with a variety of less common works; Definitely more interesting than yer usual disco comp.
