Additional liner notes by Nick deKrechewo:

Because of the ever increasing demand by the disco audience, Scepter Records has prepared a unique collection of their disco favorites, with special vocal and instrumental mixes by Tom Moulton.
Never before available.
Thanks to Florence Greenberg, president of Scepter Records, for realizing the importance of the disco market. Even thought there were many obstacles in compiling some of the older material, Mrs. Greenberg put this album together. Because of Scepter's acceptance of the disco market long before any other record company, Scepter was awarded the Billboard Magazine "1974 Trendsetter Award" for being the innovator in special disco mixes.
The collection is here now, so get dancin'!!!
Nick - Downstairs Records, N.Y.C.
