this double pack is worth it just on the strength of C2 Lady Bug and D2 Pull Up to The Bumper. Funky as hell. Grace Jones' best track ever? C1 Life is Something Special has been sampled a million times over the years. B1 Walking Into Sunshine is another much sampled classic. The other cuts are interesting and good but that second disc is really where it's really at. For the DJ's out there alot of these cuts are in the 105-115 bpm range (slow disco) and mix well with deep house. Certain masters like Theo Parrish, and DJ Spinna favor that BPM (or lower) and rarely get over 125.
