this is definitely a must buy album because it features tracks like disco nights and heaven must be an angel, ymca and all the other great classic tunes.... where i come from - Malaysia!!! (not known to the world then)were already hits in our local discotheques (some 20 years ago). burning the dancefloors almost nightly. back then it was only available on vinyl's. so i guess most people who are having all the hits or even singles on this album could be on vinyl format,right? most people would still stick to their old vinyls, but hey... having this collection on CD won't harm right?? at least the clarity is there and more durable. most of us in that era would wish a compilation of this sort to be out in the market one day. well..your prayers are answered. since it's out... what are you waiting for... don't regret later as there might never be another compilation as great as this ever !!!
one comment from me is that it would be great if it was release as a 12"singles compilation.

Every single one of these wonderful songs was a huge hit on the pop charts in the 1970s or early 1980. Disco Inferno hung around the charts for months and set thousands of dancefloors alight, while the minimalist Funkytown caused quite a stir in 1980. YMCA featured in the movie of the same name and was one of Village people's greatest hits. Boogie Oogie Oogie went Billboard Top 5 in 1979. Good Times was one of the biggest hits of 1978 and spawned quite a cult following for Chic. A very intelligent compilation and a pleasure to listen to, also ideal for parties.

Disco Nights, Vol. 4: Disco Groups has good music; but just as another reviewer notes they have edited several of these tracks for some reason I can't quite understand. The quality of the sound is good; and the artwork is nice. Unfortunately, I am somewhat disappointed with this album because too much editing was employed before they released this CD. Nevertheless, what we do get is great quality--I just wish there were more of it!

The Trammps start the CD off with their smash hit entitled "Disco Inferno;" this tune really IS one of the greatest disco tunes of all time and The Trammps were born to sing this song! "Disco Inferno" is also excellent dance music even today; and The Trammps harmonize well as they sing this one out strong--I love it! Lipps, Inc. does "Funky Town" with lots of feeling and the strings section is used very well. "Funky Town" has a great beat and Lipps, Inc. delivers this without a superfluous note. "Funky Town" naturally has that great funky `70s beat to it and this is another prime example of good `70s disco dance music.

The Weather Girls also perform their cult hit, "It's Raining Men." I once saw a picture of The Weather Girls performing this number live. The two women, previously known as Two Tons Of Fun, were decked out in elaborate pink dresses while scantily clad muscle hunks paraded about the stage in back of them--what a hoot! The Weather Girls had several hits but without a doubt their biggest success was "It's Raining Men." The Village People also do a fine job on one of their biggest hits called "Y.M.C.A.;" "Y.M.C.A." was popular with guys even after they discovered that The Village People were representing an alternative lifestyle.

The 'Pure disco' series is okay, but there are only the short 7" versions on it. But I like the long 12" versions more. Anyone, who thinks in this way, would prefer to buy 'Disco nights', because here you can get a lot of extended versions. Besides I cannot understand universal records. Why don't they published more volumes (on Universal Special Market)? There would be so much other stuff for another 11 volumes. People would buy that, because many disco tracks, especially their extended versions, are so hard to get. I had searched everywhere, but I have not found another great series like this one.

I am a big fan of 70's dance music, a/k/a "disco."
For those of us who love to dance, having contemporary music that was custom-tailored to that activity was something extraordinary and wonderful.

What I really appreciate about this series is that, whenever possible, you're getting the extended versions of the songs, or at least the full-length album cut.

[I'm betting that some of the reviewers who gave this cd poor marks never purchased--or even listened to--this set, but are from the "disco sucks" clique, and just wanted to make their point. It's OK if you don't care for "disco," but... Folks, you can't fault this record company, as it clearly--in large letters--states that this is DISCO on the cover. You'd be a knucklehead for buying one of these cds if you hate disco.]

Also, this is not watered-down, or overly-pop disco, like what was featured in SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER [I refer specifically to the BeeGees, and BeeGees-produced tracks--nothing against the Gibb brothers, they are great in their own right, but their SNF stuff is definitely not "classic" disco in my book]. Nope, this is the real club stuff, not designed to capitalize on a trend, but which actually helped CREATE the trend. That being said, two highlights from this set WERE featured in SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, and are fine cuts and pretty exciting and dynamic: "Disco Inferno," and "Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel."

This set is loaded with dance classics, among my favorites: Chic's "Good Times," and Odyssey's "Native New Yorker," the latter being one of the all-time, smooth, sophisticated 70's club tunes. And for those who like to spell while they dance there's even "Y.M.C.A."

In fact, for a representation of the finest of 70's dance/club music, you'd be hard-pressed to beat this set.

The sound is uniformly good throughout this entire series. Boogie on! Bravo!
