Second volume of a very good disco series
Jeff Pearlman | Lakeland, FL USA | 02/28/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Volume 2 has at least 2 entries that are not in their extended (12" or LP) versions, though most are:Trammps-Disco Inferno (hey, the liner notes to Vol. 1 said this was on Vol. 3) (10:51)
Ashford & Simpson-Found a Cure (3:46)(this is the 7" version; still excellent but most would prefer the 7+ minute version)
Evelyn "Champagne" King-I'm In Love (3:53) (another short version) (Actually, Evelyn wasn't using the "Champagne" nickname when this hit in 1981. I am so proud to be a font of useless music trivia...thank you Amazon, for providing me this outlet)
Jean Carn-Was That All There Was (3:53)
B.T. Express-Express (5:06)
One Way f/Al Hudson-Music (7:17)
Sister Sledge-He's The Greatest Dancer (6:13)
Sylvester-(You Make Me Feel) Mighty Real (6:34)
O'Jays-Message In Our Music (6:23)
Teddy Pendergrass-The More I Get, The More I Want (4:27)
Chic-I Want Your Love (6:56) (despite what I said about The Hustle on Vol. 1, something from Nile Rodgers & Bernard Edwards needs to be on every disco compilation)
Chaka Khan-I'm Every Woman (4:09)I think I'm not giving these discs five stars because the song choices on each volume seem so random. A song from 1975 may follow one from 1982, and there is no reason why any particular group of songs are on any volume. ("Club Floor Classics-The 70's" and Hip-O's "Dance 54" collections work better, to me, because they are more cohesive.) And when you think about it, can each of eleven volumes of this really be THE "best in the universe?""
