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.Read more ›
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!

Love all the songs, but I would not have put Disco Inferno in this group. Also, the sound could be better in some of them, like in It's raining men, but I still love the CD. Read morePublished on September 2, 2013 by lorena cornejo
I don't know why people hate disco so much. It brings back a lot of fond memories for me. I had some good times back in the day and the music was pretty good in my opinion. Read morePublished on May 31, 2013 by Danny E Atwater
