This 2013 cd contains 11 of Sylvester's tracks including the new Ralphi Rosario remix of "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real) and the total playing time is over 79 minutes long. It also contains a 6 minute 20 second version of "You Make Me Feel" and 8 minute 21 version of "Dance (Disco Heat)". Also contains longer versions of "Stars", "Can't Stop Dancing", "Over And Over", "Body Strong" and the wonderful "I Need Somebody To Love Tonight" although it is hard to determine if these are the 12 inch or LP versions as the times on other CDs vary. No "I Who Have Nothing" or "Do You Wanna Funk" so maybe Volume 2 is needed! Sound quality is very good. Package also contains a booklet of photographs and liner notes.

I would rather have had the full length album version (or even the edited UK 12" version) of I (Who Have Nothing) than a dire 'new' dub mix of 'You Make Me Feel' but at least they included the original version too

Other than that this is a great compilation. I do wish compliers would tell us punters what the various versions/mixes actually are though rather than leaving us to work it all out from the track lengths (and it'd also be helpful if the advertised track lengths on the booklet were actually accurate - all of them are wrong even if only be a few seconds!)

So - for those of you looking for the details of what versions are actually here: having compared the songs on this CD track by track with my vinyl 12" and album copies where I have them, what you get is:

'Dance (Disco Heat)' this is the UK 12" version/2nd US 12" version (the 1st US 12" and the album version is only 5:54 long). This is the main reason I bought this CD - AFAIK it's the first time the full length 12" version of 'Dance' has been available on CD - all other CD versions I have of the so-called 12" version fade out early.
'Stars' is the US 12" version (the UK 12" version is only 8:40 long)
'Can't Stop Dancing' is the US 12" version (AFAIK it wasn't released on 12" in the UK)
'Changes' is the album version
'I Need Somebody to Love Tonight' is the album version (the version on the b-side of the UK 12" of 'I Who Have Nothing' is only 4:54 long)
'Sell My Soul' is an oddity - it's the same length as the version on some previous Sylvester compilations but the album version is 6:39 and the US promo 12" version is 8:18.

In those dark days before disco was re-discovered and it had to remain a guilty pleasure for many, the undisputed queen of disco was Sylvester. A lot of disco acts flooded our living rooms at the time via the flickering tube in the corner but Sylvester always seemed so mightily real - so much more authentic than the wave of manufactured acts filtered through a homophobic, British sensibility that were so stilted your auntie could dance to them. The intro to the title track here is gorgeous enough to have made my heart beat faster every time I've heard it in every decade since this meisterwerk was released. Music like this is a leveller. Truly listen to this stuff and it will seep into your veins. It has the power to make you perform on a dance floor like you never performed before; it can make you soar. Sylvester's voice is a lush and amazing instrument. What a legacy this man has left behind - so real, so beautiful. If you ever wondered what disco was really about and you only want to buy one album let it be this one.

One of my own gay heros, got this mainly to have the full 12" version of Dance (Disco Heat) on CD at long last, no other Sylvester Disc does !.
Track one is a remix of mighty real and it SUCKS, thankfully the original 12" is on here too, my other fav track is the Patrick Cowley penned I need somebody to love tonight, Thinking this track was made in the 70's is hard to believe ! it sounds so modern, it's like ambient chilled house and it's so mornful as Sylvester singings about being lonely and just needing someone to cuddle, hug with, anyone who's every been here will know what the man is singing about.

This is an excellent collection of Sylvester's hits. I bought it primarily because I wanted some Sylvester on vinyl. However, I had no idea whether this would be good or not (in terms of sound quality of the pressing) so I was just taking a chance. I was very pleasantly surprised to find it is excellent and it is getting played a lot more than I had anticipated! The sound quality is wonderful and the quality of the sleeve and the vinyl itself (which is translucent pink!) are top notch. The only track I really wanted that is missing is Do You Wanna Funk?, but the new remix of Mighty Real is excellent.

Great compliation of Sylvester at his best and extended tracks which is a bonus.
However, if any disappointment is the remix You make me feel mighty real.
Thankfully, it's track one and so I tend to avoid the damage done to the original track which is a standout classic in its own.
Still dosent stop me rating the album 5 stars, as the rest is magnificent

most of the important hits are included here.
although this does not have do you wanna funk and sex.
presumably because these were both on different labels.
Sylvester should have an ultimate best of!
