Typically when people think of the "disco era", Motown does not immediately pop into their minds. "Disco Nights Vol. 9: Motown Dance" aims to change all that by serving up the original 12" mixes of some of the label's greatest 70s disco/funk classics. The key word here is "extended"; many of the versions on this disc run at 6 to 8 minutes long! The obvious hits are all here. Diva Diana Ross is represented with her two biggest songs of the era, the sensuous "Love Hangover" and the still-kickin' "Upside Down". The Jackson 5 give us "Dancing Machine", and the post-Smokey Miracles' underappreciated Number One hit "Love Machine" smolders. Superstars the Commodores funk things up with the memorable and mightay mightay "Brick House". And for those who can't seem to remember if Motown even had any other female singers besides Ross on the label in the 70s, their memories will be jogged by the fourth Pointer, Bonnie and her 1979 Holland-Dozier-Holland Top 15 smash "Heaven Must Have Sent You", and Thelma Houston's masterpiece "Don't Leave Me This Way", featured in the recent film "54". This disc does an excellent job of spotlighting the work of Motown producer Hal Davis, who produced many of the aforementioned titles and is too often overlooked in the history of the company. Curiously, despite such strong 70s output, two 60s dance cuts are included: the perennially popular "Dancing In The Street" by Martha Reeves and The Vandellas", and "Going To A Go Go" by Smokey Robinson and The Miracles. These songs are great, but seem out of place next to the more modern dance music comprising the rest of this collection.Read more ›

Motown Dance is Volume 9 of the Disco Nights Series. It is forty-six minutes and forty-one seconds and was released on July 26, 1995. Basically you are getting a combination of Motown music from the 60's and 70's. Though is don't believe that Going To A Go-Go and Dancing in the Street should not be included in this series because the were released before the Disco era and they sound nothing like a disco sound. The songs on Motown Dance in general are not that bad. Disco Nights, Volume 9: Motown Dance gets an A-.

This cd has a great compilation of disco hits. Very danceable and enjoyable. I put some of these songs in my iPod and take it to the gym. It helps me get through the "ordeal" of exercising !! lol

Well worth the purchase price for the extended full length versions of the Miracles "Love Machine", Diana Ross "Love Hangover", Bonnie Pointer "Heaven must have sent you" and Thelma Houston "Don't leave me this way". These were the tracks that defined disco in the '70s. ...Kill for a copy!

This "Motown Dance" compilation of "dancing music" hits, has a very, very pretentious title for its real content.

Main tunes this CD is worth for: the magnificent "Love Hangover" by Diana Ross (what a song, dude! It's really good: it has rhythm, excellent performance and a very catchy melody), "Don't Leave Me This Way" by Thelma Houston, and even "Dancing In The Streets" by the wonderful Martha & The Vandellas.

For serious Disco & Dancing Music collectors only.
