Really disappointing, as has been mentioned the majority of these have been edited - and not outstandingly well either, simple cut and paste that sounds a bit silly on the wonderful Curtis* - How Can I Tell Her and adds nothing (and cuts out a fair bit of the original). Can't understand why either, some of these have been extended so it's obviously not to save time.

Some great tunes on here with high quality transfers but unfortunately almost all are marred (for me) by clumsy edits that sound totally out of sync with the originals.

Some great tracks. My standouts:
Cheryl Berdell's "Giving It All To You", Executive Suite's "Funkin'", Curtis "How Can I Tell Her", People's Workshop "Funkathone", Silver, Platinum and Gold's "Just Friends", Puffs "In The Mood", Don Renaldo "Fiddlin Around", Jimmy Sabater "To Be With You", Arts and Crafts "I've Been Searching", Hot Ice "Dancing Free" and Gordons War "The Rock is Gonna Get You"

"Sylvano Santorio - We've Got It" sounds like influenced by "Deodato - Super Strut" (1973).
And be aware that the Curtis track here is not the original verison but an edit.

Just recorded Sizzle - Love is all around, because it lacks a lot in the low end. Spectrometer says it has no audible sound in the range between 27Hz and 220Hz. So either it was eq'ed heavily or it is the same in the original (which i doubt). This however makes at least this song unplayable :/

Great compilation of lesser known but high quality disco tunes.

One caveat - many of the tunes have been inexplicably edited for the compilation. Why anyone would want a compilation such as this marred by edits is beyond me, as some of the better breaks are simply not there. Too bad, as otherwise it's great.
