The Best of Disco Demands

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
In 2005, revered DJ and record collector Al Kent started to compile rare disco tracks, many of which were presented in his re-edited form, with the small-run Disco Demands series, released on his Million Dollar Disco label. The discs are re-circulated here, via the bigger BBE, as a slim five-disc package that contains most of the original series' tracks. Kent's cunning edits, both slight and severe, have a lot to do with his status as Dimitri from Paris' and Joey Negro's favorite DJ.

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
In 2005, revered DJ and record collector Al Kent started to compile rare disco tracks, many of which were presented in his re-edited form, with the small-run Disco Demands series, released on his Million Dollar Disco label. The discs are re-circulated here, via the bigger BBE, as a slim five-disc package that contains most of the original series' tracks. Kent's cunning edits, both slight and severe, have a lot to do with his status as Dimitri from Paris' and Joey Negro's favorite DJ. Some serious disco heads might even be brave enough to declare a preference for Kent's version of Arts & Craft's version of "I've Been Searching" over the Walter Gibbons mix, as it's both tighter and tougher, with more emphasis on the clavinet and an elimination of the male vocal part. Only six of the 45 selections -- including the album version of Brooklyn Express' "Back in Time," an homage to Eddie Kendricks' "Girl, You Need a Change of Mind" -- are left untouched. The whole set makes it apparent that Kent doesn't play around and intends to keep limbs and hips in motion at all times. Those who have tired of '70s dancefloor classics and favor the funky and slightly odd will find this to be an embarrassment of riches.
