5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, Marvellous Splendiferousness, 30 May 2012

This review is from: The Best Of Disco Demands - A Collection Of Rare 1970S Dance Music - Compiled By Al Kent (Audio CD)
All praise to Al Kent and BBE for creating this wonderful collection of tunes that I defy anyone to sit still to while listening. If Al ever makes it down to Bristol, I want to be the first to buy him a very large cider... There's hardly a dud track on Disco Demands, and we're talking no less than 45 tracks of funky, discofied, partying pleasure. But this collection is more than just hedonism: these tunes have finesse, style, musical sophistication and analogue warmth. Not a synthetic beat anywhere to be found - these are real sounds played by real musicians. Al subjects most of the tracks to some very special treatment: edits that bring a contemporary housey feel to sections of many of the cuts, but without compromising the essence of the original 70's recordings. The collection is also chock-full of great, great basslines, all played on real Fender bass, by the sound of it (I am a bass player and some of these lines are to die for).

Of course, this release will not appeal to everyone. The fella who described Disco Demands as "absolute rubbish" was, I am guessing, looking for something more classic and commercial in the genre. I like funk, disco and ghetto jazz, especially when these styles meet and meld into an irresistible groove somewhere in the in-between. I also like a lot of different kinds of electronic dance music, so this collection is just perfect for me. If your tastes are anything like mine, you have just got to get this.
