There's goodies on every Van Mccoy album but on this the standout tracks are the mighty "Earthquake", the funky "The Walk", the hit "Change With The Times" (if you get a chance check out the bizarre video for it) and the syrupy sweet "Love Child". "Keep ... See full review

"Supernature" is just one of those disco albums that you have to have in your collection. Unfortunately there are no bonus tracks on the release as Cerrone, well known for his stubbornness refused. There are some nice liner notes though. I've realised ... See full review

The title track is perfectly in sync with its time, cue the leotards and funky synth. Better than their previous effort but obviously a very different approach to their 70s stuff.

A pretty weak album. The only cut worth listening to is "Rock And Fire"

This group need a proper boxset. All the extended mixes, not the 3 minute versions

"I Feel Disco Good" is far superior to the A side in my view. Frantic hedonistic disco at Morali's best.

Definitely a lot less impressive than previous efforts, the only real standout on this for me is "Put Your Feet To The Beat"

First side is a disco essential. "Brazil", "Frenesi" and "Peanut Vendor" all seamlessly blend together for an extravagant affair.

Deliciously lush disco with the irrepresibly happy title tune and "Lady Luck", "Long Distance Romance" and "Super Lover" all strong runner ups. "Disco Blues" doesn't do much for me though. Great sleeve as well.

Quite a good collection, as is customary with this label many tracks are clipped. But a great collection for starters.

No it's not. She's a Canadian singer who I found on Facebook. She doesn't sing professionally anymore and she'd practically forgotten about this album when I contacted her!

This is a very funky album. The track "Give Me Your Love" is a disco beauty, full of drama and funk, "Dancin Game" has some wicked sound effects, and the rest are amiable disco tunes that are great for the dancefloor or just chillin at home
