CD Reviews

The Finest Compilation
disco75 | State College, PA United States | 07/27/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This disc has the highest ratio of superlative tracks of any compilation in the disco genre. It showcases gems that were not popular with the mainstream, were unknown to the suburbanites who made disco a trend, and were virtually never played on radio stations outside NY, LA, and Chicago. The weakest tracks here are above average. Eight of the songs are superior, with Inner Life's "Moment of My Life," Carl Bean's gay pride manifesto "I Was Born This Way," Martin Circus' exalted romp "Disco Circus," Frisky's "You've Got Me Dancing In My Sleep," and especially Black Ivory's "Mainline" with Leroy Burgess reaching the apex of disco quality. These songs induced ecstatic reactions in those lucky enough to encounter them on dance floors in the 1977-82 years. Four additional songs, including the overlooked "Over and Over" by Sylvester, round out the collection. The liner notes are interesting and extensive, and include photos of the 12" sleeves or, in the case of album tracks, the lp covers."
For happy and carefree people!

"Have a listen to both Jumping compilations and you 'll soon realise how all this house music thing started.Yes,all the influence on the music we dance since 1988 can be found on the underground scene of New York in the late 70's.You 'll just love every song.Jocelyn Brown singing the original version of the 'Moment of my Life' (a 1997 hit from Bobby D' Ambrossio), Norman Jean - the voice of Chic singing 'Saturday' (a Donna Allen's hit) and Roy Ayers singing the gorgeous 'Sweet Tears'. Hey, there is also Sylvster's greatest moment ever 'Over and Over' (a 10 min cover of the Ashford and Simpson masterpiece) and Leroy Burgess ' 'Mainline'. And there is more... This compilation changed my life!"

"Anybody who likes old school disco tracks will find something to like on this CD. I hope they keep this series going, as Jumpin 1 is also very good."
