The 70's were the height of everything Disco, the songs were great... Great to listen to, great to sing to, great to dance to.
Bringing together the cream of disco classics from the most popular artists such as Donna Summer "I Feel Love", Rose Royce "Car Wash", and Kool & The Gang "Ladies' Night", not forgetting Abba’s "Dancing Queen", Sylvester’s "You Make Me Feel Mighty Real", Shalamar’s "A Night To Remember", and Quincy Jones "Ai No Corrida".
Disco Fever is a 3 CD album which will provide a flashback to disco’s glory days. With special packaging, and a fantastic collection of disco's greatest hits, Disco Fever will be an album most people will be proud to own.

No such things here as 5 good tracks and 10 bad, this ones the cream from disc one to three.
Very good transfers too,with that analogue feel to the eq.
If you are getting your first retro Disco CD compilation you'd be in a great starting position with this compilation and work round the rest - I'm sure many people will be amazed at this release and how they may have missed its initial release last year.
My advice, if you remotely like Disco, this is a must have.
This is possibly the best disco compilation I have ever come across (and I have literally hundreds of them). These 3 CDs are jam-packed with 60 tracks, so the radio versions are mostly favoured over the 12" mixes. Most Disco compilations favour 12" mixes, so this is a nice alternative and makes for a great home-listening experience when you just want to hear hit after hit. There are one or two minor gripes, such as Ottawan's "D.I.S.C.O." and Eruption's "I Can't Stand The Rain" being both noticeably shorter than the original single versions. Ottawan fades 30 seconds early at 3:13 and Eruption fading at 2:38 is simply too short. The full Eruption 7" at 3:03 is included on the excellent value 5CD:100 Hits: Disco. Cheryl Lynn's "Got To Be Real" is not the 7" version, but instead it is the album version faded which feels odd because it goes into the long instrumental break and fades after a minute or so when you're expecting the chorus to come back (but the full 7" version is also on the 5CD:100 Hits: Disco or the 12" version is on Disco Discharge. Classic Disco). Thelma Houston's "Don't Leave Me This Way" is poor quality here, but readily found on a number of other compilations, such as Universal Masters Collection - Classic Disco. Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" is not the full 7" version at almost 6 minutes, but instead is an edited version at 3:45 and Crown Heights Affair "You Gave Me Love" is the 12"/LP version faded early, rather than the superior 7" version, but still sounds reasonably good for what it is. Best points: It includes the 7" version of Rose Royce "Car Wash", which I have on 12 different compilations and this is the only one in decent remastered quality (the others all sound hissy or have mastering faults. On this CD it sounds great and the handclaps on the intro are clear). Also included is the original 12" version of Patrick Hernandez "Born To Be Alive" which I have not found elsewhere (other compilations favour the USA 12" version, or even worse the USA 12" faded early!). Edwin Starr's "Contact" is here in the original 7" single version, which is usually only on compilations as a 12" version. The same goes for Amii Stewart's classic "Knock On Wood" which you would expect to find on more compilations, here in its original 7" radio version and again the same for Odyssey's "Native New Yorker" which is the 7" version with the saxophone intro. Quincy Jones "Ai No Corrida" is the 7" version (I've not seen this on a compilation before). The Whispers "And The Beat Goes On" is the original 7" single version which was an edit ending on the chorus (most compilations fade out during a verse!). Patrick Juvet's "I Love America" 7" version is here sounding fantastic in lovely quality whereas on previous compilations it sometimes sounds muddy. Another treat is the original 7" version of Gene Chandler's "Get Down" which is usually in 12" form on most compilations. Sylvester's "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" is included here in an edited version I haven't come across before, different to the other 20 versions I have! I could go on and on, but you get the idea. It's great and it even includes ABBA's "Dancing Queen". ABBA are hardly ever on compilations, so that just goes to show the quality of this compilation. I didn't even get round to mentioning Kool & The Gang, Shalamar, Earth Wind & Fire, Gloria Gaynor, Village People, Diana Ross... No other Disco compilation comes close. Highly recommended.
