VERY DISAPOINTING FOR THE TRUE CLASSIC CLUB GOER
Dj Jimmy M | Tempe,Az USA | 04/23/2002
(1 out of 5 stars)
"Do not be fooled by the "Extended Long Play Club Versions" note on this disc. All of these songs are destroyed to no end with the exception of one track. Here is an indepth review:
Supernature - Cerrone/very lousy edit and chopped in all the wrong places. Buy the CD "Cerrone 3" to hear this work of artLove And Desire - Arpeggio/strange edit of this one taking sections of the track and putting them in different placesI Found Love - Love And Kisses/this is the original promo edit for this one, not bad, but bad mastering. Hear the good master of this edit on the boxed set"Casablanca records Story"Hot Butterfly - Bionic Boogie/not edited but just the lp version.The 12 is way long and mixed differently(unavalible on cd)Star Wars - Meco/another original promo edit with bad mastering, just buy the Meco album and hear the whole trackI Love America - Patrick Juvet/the original single version, low masteringLove To Love You- Donna Summer/DESTROYED!!!! the original single edit is betterDon't Cry For Me..- Festival/Unedited but, hear the whole "Evita" suiteSouviners - Voyage/FULL VERSION!!!!! A miracle. But the downside..too much treble on masteringRomeo And Juliet - A.Costandinos/ Well, a cleaned up version of the horrable Casablanca Records 12 inch edit. This is the only good thing about this disc. If you never heard the entire track of this..You're S.O.L. unless you shop for used classic vinyl. It's a great 31min. track in its entirty. Filling an entire LP. This is just one of Alec Costandinos' great concept masterpieces. Sadly, none of his other greats such as "Hunchback Of Notre Dame" has ever been rereleased on CD, not even an edit to give people a taste.Theme From Midnight.. - Giorgio Moroder/This track is the wrong title. It's really called "Chase" and is butchered beyond belief. "Theme From..." is the name of another track off the same album and is an ambient type ballad. These people not only give fase info on extended versions and bad editing but, wrong track info as well (JEEESEEE!!)Boogie Motion - Beautiful Bend/The original single edit. Your not missing much for its full version is repetitive anyway.Well, there you have it. If you are a true classic clubber, BEWARE!!!! DO NOT BUY THIS JOKE!!!!!! But, if you are just a person who wants a feel for some of the more underground side of disco and classic electronic dance..pick it up. Who knows, after what i said, you might find yourself buying a turntable and tracking down this vinyl and compiling a good version of this disc."
A Gem: Lesser-Known Disco Classics in Full-Length Versions
Aaron S Holsberg | New York NY USA | 07/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Volume 3 may be the high-point of the excellent Disco Nights series, a true value offering mostly full-length versions of beloved disco classics. This volume focuses on Eurodisco, which was ultra-melodic,smooth, and very futuristic for the time. And what variety - the eerie "Supernature", the gospel-tinged "You Make Me Feel/Mighty Real," the campy "I Love America", the almost orchestral/classic "Romeo and Juliet" and "Boogie Motion," and the perky,bubbling "Love and Desire" (which was to be a major influence on Lime). There is no filler here - every single cut was a dance floor show-stopper. Most were huge club hits, but received very little radio play, so this collection avoids the obvious and the overplayed. This genre nearly disappeared when disco fell out of fashion in 1979, and was survived by urban/soul disco (which would become house), funk, and new wave. This CD will bring back memories for anyone who went to clubs or listened to disco radio stations from 1977-1979. Younger newcomers will hear the forerunners of electronica and techno, with similar energy but with much more melody and song structure"
Not far out but quite good

"To people who were familiar with this material during disco's heyday and own vinyls of these titles, let me start with the bad news: A) Some of the hits, such as tracks 1, 3, 7, 10, 11 and 12 are'nt extended play versions, and almost all the tracks aren't full length versions. I had especially expected the last track to be an extended play or full length version since this isn't one easy to purchase anywhere on CD. B) Some of the tracks' editing, such as in "I Found Love" is short of being good. The tracks could have been organized differently. In the third track you can hear, at a certain time mark, a distinct change from a certain level of digital remastering to a much better one.On the good side, the hit selection is excellent. Every Eurodisco producer of that era seems to have gotten his fair share and his honor due. If you don't want to hoard all the Eurodisco albums and you don't insist on having full length versions, this disc is a M U S T for you. Don't waste anymore time and hit the pavement hunting!"
