Boasting 20 songs, all of which are indisputable classics, Millennium Party is the best single-disc sampler of '70s and early-'80s funk available. There's no James Brown or Sly Stone on the collection -- instead, the earliest music on the disc is Curtis Mayfield's 1972 masterpiece "Superfly." From there, the disc winds through a head-spinning series of classics, including "Brick House," "Love Rollercoster," "Tear the Roof Off the Sucker Give Up the Funk," "Jungle ...

Although the disc isn't presented in chronological order, it doesn't matter, since the sequencing makes for better listening.
