Too bad, as already mentioned by other users, the collection would be beautiful if there had been no remakes by the DJ, luckily the best song for me "get ready" has not been retouched, grade 2

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"

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.
