Overview

The Hip-O label released The Disco Box back in 1999, a four-disc set that threw in a few too many minor surprises to be considered a definitive summary of disco. Six years later, the same label released Disco Gold -- a two-disc set that would sufficiently complement The Disco Box if it didn't contain so many of the same selections. (Hip-O pulled the same exact stunt with 1999's The Funk Box and 2005's Funk Gold.) Regardless, Disco Gold is packaged thoughtfully, unlike so many other cut-rate disco compilations that have flooded the market over the years. It's a little annoying that several inclusions -- "I Will Survive," "Y.M.C.A." "Disco Inferno," "Turn the Beat Around," "Don't Leave Me This Way" -- have already appeared on dozens upon dozens of compilations (and sometimes near a hundred), but Stargard's "Theme from Which Way Is Up," Edwin Starr's "H.A.P.P.Y. Radio," and Jimmy Ruffin's "Tell Me What You Want" (present in a previously unreleased mix from disco pioneer Tom Moulton) help make the compilation somewhat unique. Disco Gold

Disco Gold [Hip-O] 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This collection: DISCO GOLD finally did something no other CD has done. A 1978 Norman Whitfield penned hit by Stargard, "Theme from Which Way Is Up" is now on an American CD! Previously it was only available on a very crowded compilation from the U.K. Until this CD arrived, you could only hear Stargard's funky burner at the end of Richard Pryor's film of the same name on your television. Thank you Hip-O Records!!! Other tracks of note: the 12 inch version of Bonnie Pointer's Motown remake "Heaven Must Have Sent You". "Brazil" by The Ritchie Family..............and it's inspiration "T.S.O.P." by MFSB featuring the Three Degrees. There are 30 tracks in all! Many #1 chart hits like Thelma Houston's "Don't Leave Me This Way" and Rose Royce's "Car Wash". This is THEE definitive disco collection! Highly recommended! Bobby Beresiwsky Lauser, Salinas, CA
