This review is from: Extended Seventies - The Dawning Of The 12 Inch Era (Audio CD)
For the price, this is very good value. Most of the tracks will be familiar from other anthologies, but only in their short 7" radio/pop chart versions. I was interested in hearing the long version of Sparks "Beat the Clock" as it bears little resemblence to the 7" version that most of us are familiar with. Stand outs include; Taste of Honey "Boogie Oogie Oogie", fabulous bass line; Cerrone "Supernature", Sugarhill Gang "Rapper's Delight" in all it's 14.32 glory and Grace Jones "La Vie En Rose" (Tom Moulton's brilliant mix) The only bummer as far as I'm concerned is Public Image Ltd's "Death Disco". It just doesn't seem to fit in with the rest. It's all a matter of taste I guess.
All in all this is one that I have no hestitation in recommending.
