"I am a big fan of classic 70's dance music, and there is no more definitive collection anywhere. First Choice is THE classic girl group of the "disco era," chiefly because they recorded so many dance classics, NOT because they were a disco act. No, they were a great r&b act, period. Nonetheless, their Salsoul/Goldmind recordings feature full-throttle performances, with great orchestrations, and real songs. These are full-length tracks, and in some cases, the 12 inch extended versions. Forget "Saturday Night Fever." This is the real deal. Many of these songs have been sampled to death over the years, and for good reason. There are no finer dance grooves than "Let No Man Put Asunder," "Doctor Love," and "Love Thang" [this one, perhaps, being the all-time greatest dance record]. "Double Cross" is another full-bodied, classic dance track with a killer bass line. Many other fine ones in this collection. If you can sit still through these jams, you better check your pulse! Get this one while you still can."

"I recall staying out late at night, sometimes an hour and a half later than I'd planned, to be able to dance to songs like "Hold Your Horses" and "Dr. Love." Whoever put together this magnificent ode to a very, very talented girl group hit it just right -- All the goodies from the albums are there, the album cuts of the hits AND the 12" mixes. Even though the Salsoul label's long gone, somebody decided to buy their masters and put them together and get in on what I believe is the retro curve in it's infancy. I played the 12" version to a very talented young bass player who likes old school a lot; and while he's heard his parents' collection of Al Green and Blue Magic and the Stylistics and Plenty of Motown, he'd never heard anything like this. He was doing the bass riff from that song after about half an hour. He was amazed; he said "Damn, these hip-hoppers and rappers nowadays don't write orchestral charts like this." So I gave him a lesson in Salsoul Orchestra 101. Finally, I'm a wee bit overweight these days, and dancing to this and the other disco stuff I've thankfully found on Amazon is a great way to get some good cardiovascular going! Buy this now - play 'em all the way through - and remember where you were, and who you were going out with, and which club you were at, when you first heard these tunes!"
