Appalling compressed sound - may as well download the MP3 version
on 15 May 2013
In terms of the songs included this is a great compilation. I bought it for about 10 songs I didn't yet have from the disco era (my teenage years - ah the memories :-)).
I do however have a lot of these songs on various other compilations (mainly from Rhino) and the sound quality on this cd is really poor in comparison. It's highly compressed with little deep bass, and being disco/dance music that's missing a lot of the oomph these songs had. If you don't have a lot of the songs listed and you don't really care about the sound quality, then you'll be happy with this purchase. If reasonable sound quality is an important factor when you buy music, then you'll be disappointed. Given that it's a little bit cheaper - if you're only likely to listen for an occasional party - then save your money and buy the MP3 version - you won't be losing any sound quality. If you have a decent stereo and sound quality is important - avoid!
