Product description

Amazon.co.uk

Eighties soul and funk has long been overlooked by musical pundits who seem more keen to remember the excessiveness of 1970s disco or the acid days of house. Let the Music Play highlights those sandwiched between these eras, artists such as Shalamar, Imagination and Shannon who produced some of the most brilliant grooves ever. Let the Music Play--80s Groove is an overdue celebration of these tracks, uniting the familiar classics ("Hangin' on a String", "Fantasy" and "Ain't Nobody") with forgotten gems such as "Rockit" and "The Crown". Even though over a quarter of the songs on the compilation were actually released in the 70s, they all contributed to the development of this distinctive sound. In fact the legacy of the compositions lives on with Barry White's "Its Ecstasy When You Lay Down next to Me" being heavily sampled by Robbie Williams ("Rock DJ"), and Will Smith borrowing large chunks of "He's the Greatest Dancer" for "Gettin' Jiggy with It". The tracks are all joined together in a subtle non-stop mix, making the compilation perfect for blitzy 80s retro parties. --John Galilee
