Bring back the good old days.

Those later volumes contain some very rare and obscure disco songs.

I would recommend this to anyone who like the sound of the 70's.

Rhino Records started out as a company that reissued classic music from the 50's and 60's. Later, they branched out into the 1970's. As they progressed into the 70's, they made a decision to start reissuing disco music. This was somewhat of a controversy at the time. I mean, these people were hardcore 60's rockers. These were the kind of people who hated disco music. However, some of the people at Rhino must have realized there was money to be made in reissuing disco music that had basically vanished off of the face of the earth for much of the 80's. They started off by issuing greatest hits compilations by artists like KC & the Sunshine Band and the Village People. With the success of those CD, Rhino decided to issue "The Disco Years Vol 1" and "The Disco Years Vol 2" in 1990. Volume 1 was mostly early disco music and Volume 2 was mostly later disco music. These 2 volumes contain some of the best disco music from that era. The success of these 2 volumes resulted in more volumes being released by Rhino in 1992. Those later volumes contain some very rare and obscure disco songs. This volume contains the most hits. All of the songs included here were not only disco hits, but they were also Top 40 Pop hits, except for one. The only oddball song on this CD is "Miss Broadway" by Belle Epoque. I bought this CD when it came out in 1990, so I have listened to it many times and have gotten used to "Miss Broadway" over the years. But for most people just wanting hits, this song will be the only non-hit that you will likely want to skip over. Otherwise, this CD is highly recommended.

Rhino has assembled a good collection of commercially popular disco tunes, but the real reason for disco's popularity - the extended mixes that created the backbone of club culture and enabled people to dance for hours - has eluded them. All the tracks featured in this collection are radio edits. Consequently, the listener is faced with a collection of dated ditties rather than hearing the tunes as they were meant to be heard: dancefloor epics that sweep you up. Significant misdemeanours include Love Hangover, Don't Leave Me This Way, and You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real), all of which rely on extended intros and breaks for the desired impact. If you have fond memories of these tracks as radio highlights then you'll enjoy this collection; If, however, you want to groove to the roots of today's dance music culture, look elsewhere.

This is an exceptional collection that most people would find enjoyable. I bought this album (along with the 6 other volumes) years ago, but I still play it a few times a year. The well-known hit songs during this time period are here: "The Hustle", "Disco Inferno", and "Love Hangover".
This is my suggestion: You must buy the other six volumes. Sure, even if you buy those there are still LOTS of notable songs missing. What Rhino tried to do was gather the well-known songs instead of "rare, hard-to-find". The packaging is superb: nice liner notes, pictures, and song credits.

Yep, they're all here. Well, almost all of them. No Donna Summer, the queen of disco. But with the vast , even radio ready playlist available, especially on the always excellent Rhino Records, there are no problems. Try to get as many of these anthologies as possible, since one CD can't hold it all. You just don't hear this stuff on the radio much anymore.
I see your point Mr. NY Club DJ (I'm form PA) but I like dated ditties. Good easy on the ears, yet up beat, light and lively music one can hum along to and be happy is getting rarer and rarer, Along with classic Doo Wopp, There just ain't stuff like that any more.
Bring back the good old days. Yes, they were really that good.

The first and best of Rhino's "Disco Years" compilations. "Turn the Beat Around" offers 16 dance tracks ranging from Van McCoy's "The Hustle" to The Trammps' "Disco Inferno." Notable artists include KC & The Sunshine Band, Rose Royce and Thelma Houston. All that's missing are Donna Summer and Chic (both featured in later Rhino volumes). Though a memorable time capsule, you should look elsewhere for extended club mixes — preferably Rebound's excellent "Disco Nights" series.

I have heard the songs in this cd and hope others will like it as I did. It is a very good compilation af music that created an explosive era in dance music. Something to be heard to remember times when music was for dancing the night away.

Rhino has put together a classic collection of pure disco. All the songs were top radio and club hits. Sound quality is great. All songs are the radio edits, but that suits me just fine.
