5.0 out of 5 stars The Encyclopedia of Disco! Get All Four!, 23 Dec 2009
This review is from: Disco Discharge - Disco Ladies (Audio CD)
The good people at Harmless have been Kind enough to compile four excellent compilations covering every aspect of the original Disco genre. Covering 'Disco Ladies', 'Classic Disco', 'Gay Disco & Hi-NRG' and 'Euro Disco". Lovingly restored and for many of the racks they appear for the first time on CD in their 'Original' Full length mixes. Don't be disillusioned by other reviews stating the mixes are too long?? Hello! These are disco classics/tracks and were not 3 minute radio ditties! 90% of so called Disco comps are recycled and obvious and almost always include shortened radio edits. This set of 4 covers a truly historic period in music, let alone dance music. Before the 12 inch single came along DJs had to do with 7" or album tracks and double up to create longer tracks and be pretty good at blending so as to keep the dancefloors rocking. The whole point of extended versions was to let the dancers go off and enjoy their favourites as much as possible and of course the breaks were there to 'give the drummer some'. These Original versions (which is what they are despite previous reviewers claiming otherwise) are the definite versions played back in those heady days across the globe, anywhere there was a soundsystem and a glitterball. This series is relevant and diverse and includes some well known classics, as well some hard to find corkers that still sound good today. If you are at all interested in the origins of House/Garage/Dance Music then this is it, lesson 101. Do yourself a favour and buy all four, you will not regret it!
