With a disc for each of the 70s, 80s and 90s, this is a fine collection of Disco and Dance classics, each in its original extended form. So faithful are the transfers to CD that you can even hear the vinyl crackle as the needle beds-in for Chaka Khan's belter 'I'm Every Woman', while The Sugarhill Gang's seminal 'Rappers delight' took me straight back to the birth of commercial rap music. Donna Summer's disco leviathan 'I Feel Love' provides several minutes of unadulterated pleasure, and Chic's 'Good Times' is a reminder of why the producers were the kings of late 70s/early 80s dance music.
80s highlights include 'Blue Monday', and 'Love Can't Turn Around' by Farley Jackmaster Funk, while the 1990s are represented by such luminaries as Adamski, Dee-Lite and DNA featuring Suzanne Vega.
Overall this is majestic selection of danceable chart hits from the halcyon decades of dance music, and with a track listing that eschews some over-familiar tracks for lesser known gems, this is a thoroughly essential purchase for all lovers of great pop music.
