The Best of the Salsoul Collections
disco75 | State College, PA United States | 07/26/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This 2 CD set is the same mixed bag of Salsoul artists as the other collections, but contains some very strong tracks that make it well worth purchasing, especially considering the price. These extended versions range from cheesy soul songs about relationships with neighbors and lovers to exceptional instrumentals ("War Dance" by Kebekelektrik, Silvetti's beautiful "Spring Rain," the intense "Moonboots" by ORS). The garage-raw sound of "Catch Me On The Rebond" showcases Loleatta Holloway at her grittiest. "Let's Celebrate" is wonderful for its music and its lyrics, and is likely the finest song recorded by the group Skyy. "Tangerine" by the Salsoul Orchestra and "Let Me Party With You" by Bunny Sigler are a lot of fun."

"The SALSOUL ORCHESTRA IS THE EPITOME OF DISCO MUSIC!!I would buy anything of S.O because this is what I heard and danced to at house parties,wedding receptions,anniversaries etc..back in the 70's!This group has a reputation of getting everyone out of their seats!!The main reason why I bought this cd is for 3 songs "SPRING RAIN,LAW & ORDER and JINGO"!!!These are 3 collectors masterpieces/hustle jams that were very hard to find and I am so happy that I finally own this gem!"SPRING RAIN" has the flair of euro-disco with it's sexiness and gorgeous rhytms!"JINGO" is exotic and hypnotic!"LAW & ORDER" is very upbeat,danceable and pulsating like "Double Exposure's Ten Percent".I also enjoyed the mesmerizing electronic synthesizers of "WAR DANCE"!Plus the fun and romantic tunes of "RIO DE JANEIRO"!"I LOVE NY" is another likeable and fun song."RIO and NY" are definetely great vacation advertisers!"TANGERINE" Salsoul's best hit(in my opinion) is very alluring,swingy with dynamic blend of big band and disco tempos!! Four years ago I bought the "SALSOUL ORCHESTRA ANTHOLOGY" also (highly recommended) so I have "TANGERINE" on 2 separate cds now. Another groovy and funky hit was "DOUBLE CROSSED"!Just about everything FIRST CHOICE put out was a dancefloor thriller!! "THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH and MOONBOOTS" had to grow on me but the remaining songs on this cd I don't like.That's the reason why I rate this with 4 stars instead of 5.Only a person who grew up in the 70's and experienced the powerful and charismatic disco orchestra of SALSOUL can appreciate this collectors classic!!!!! (P.S. there are no edited versions or remakes on this 2 cd set so you can enjoy the original extended mixes!)"

"I'm very happy that a collection like this exists! If you are a disco fan that bought "The Disco Box" and/or "The Disco Years, Vol. 1-7", then you will like this collection! Sure, many of the songs did not rank high on the Billboard charts, but this collection along with "Salsoul Classics vol. 1 & 2" and "Super Rare Disco Vol. 1 & 2" present a different side of disco. My favorite songs are "Tangerine" and "Spring Rain". Very Essential collection."
