VariousDisco Giants 5 – 20 Full Length Disco Classics Of The 80s ... CD
Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), 1980s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
A snapping collection of soul from the 80s – 2CDs worth of music, and a host of wonderful groovers from the post-disco years! The styles here are heavy on beats and keyboards – lots more electric rhythms than the previous decade's soul – but the sound is still plenty darn great, thanks to impeccable songwriting, infectious hooks, and top-shelf vocal performances all the way through! There's plenty here for an 80s grooving dancefloor – and titles include "Let It All Blow" by Dazz Band, "I Am Somebody" by Glenn Jones, "Stone Love" by Kashif, "Just For The Night" by Evelyn Champagne King, "What Do I Do (M&M mix)" by Phil Fearon & Galaxy, "Pickin Up Pieces" by Brenda K Starr, "Act Like You Know" by Fat Larry's Band, "Outstanding" by Gap Band, "Encore (live)" by Cheryl Lynn, "This Beat Is Mine" by Vicki D, "Jam On It" by Newcleus, "I Love You More" by Rene & Angela, "No Way" by Bobbi Humphrey, "In Your Car" by The Cool Notes, "Right On Track" by Breakfast Club, and "You Can't Have My Love" by The Jones Girls.

VariousDisco Giants 8 – 20 Full Length Disco Classics Of The 80s ... CD
Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), 1980s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
Disco giants, and giants of soul – a wealth of 80s groovers served up in a great double-length set – not just club-oriented numbers, but some great crossover soul too! Some of the artists here are the bigger ones of the time, but they're often represented by some of their more compelling tracks – and are nicely mixed next to some lesser-remembered acts who round things out, and keep the track list sounding nice and fresh! Titles include "Happy" by Surface, "Lettin It Loose" by Heatwave, "Just Got Paid" by Johnny Kemp, "Suferfine" by Skool Boyz, "Dressing Up" by Street Angels, "The Heaven I Need" by Three Degrees, "Never Gonna Let You Go" by Chandra Simmons, "Lovin You" by Status IV, "Doin It In A Haunted House" by Yvonne Gage, and "Dancing Tight" by Galaxy.

VariousDisco Giants 9 – 20 Full Length Disco Classics Of The 80s ... CD
Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), 1980s. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
Not classic disco – but a wealth of 80s soul – packed into a double-length set that's overflowing with R&B gems from the years beyond disco! Most tunes are still pretty clubby – not in an underground way, but with some of the styles of the more important soul modes of the time – those ways of hitting a groove with plenty of midtempo rhythms, sweet stepping moments, and even a bit of boogie too! Titles include "Middle Of The Night" by Body, "Passion From A Woman" by Krystol, "In The Dark" by Roy Ayers, "Rock Steady" by The Whispers, "Ain't Nothin Goin On But The Rent" by Gwen Guthrie, "Don't Let Go Of Me" by Mike & Brenda Sutton, "If You Can Do It I Can Too" by Meli'Sa Morgan, "Strip This Heart" by John Adams, "Back To Love" by Evelyn King, and "Falling In Love" by Sybil.

New VariousDisco Giants – 20 Full Length Disco Classics Of The 80s ... CD
Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Way more than you'd expect from the title and cover – not a batch of familiar disco hits, but a treasure trove of club classics from the early 80s! Sure, some of the artists here are familiar – but most of them are from the indie side of the spectrum, and even the few big stars are represented by either non-hit tracks, or hard to find remixes that make this collection well worth seeking out! And given the early 80s focus of the track selection, there's less disco here than 80s groove and boogie-styled rhythms – heavy on the beats and keyboards, and still filled with plenty of great vocals. 20 tracks on 2CDs – with titles that include "Dreamer (long vocal)" by BB&Q Band, "Nights Of Pleasure (Nick Martinelli mix)" by Loose Ends, "You Can't Run From My Love" by Stephanie Mills, "I'm Out To Catch" by Leon Haywood, "Just Another Lover (12" mix)" by Johnny Kemp, "Fall Down" by Tramaine, "I Feel For You (12" mix)" by Chaka Khan, "Got To Be Real" by Selection, "Garden Of Eve (long)" by Yvonne Gage, "The Rhythm Of The Jungle" by The Quick, "Burnin Love" by Con Funk Shun, "I Need You" by Network, "Love Take Over" by Five Star, and "To Be With You" by Maxx Traxx.

New VariousDisco Giants Volume 10 – 20 Full Length Disco Classics Of The 80s ... CD
Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), 1980s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
80s soul galore – most of it more than clubby enough to play on the dancefloor, although done with much sharper sounds than most of the work in the 70s disco generation! The cuts are heavy on bassy beats, guitar parts, and keyboard lines – often nice and lean, with that sharp punch you'd hear so strongly on soul tracks from the 80s. There's plenty of hits and overlooked classics here – and the double length set features "Guilty" by Yabrough & Peoples, "Back & Forth" by Cameo, "The Smurf" by Tyrone Brunson, "Electric Lady" by Con Funk Shun, "Dial My Number" by Pauli Carman, "Baby I'm Hooked" by Kathy Mathis, "Magic's Wand" by Whodini, "Let Me Be The One" by Five Star, "In Your Eyes" by James D-Train Williams, "Seduction" by Val Young, "Turn It Up" by The Conway Brothers, and "The Truth" by Colonel Abrams.

New VariousNighttime Lovers Vol 16 – A Fine Collection Of Disco Funk Classics Of The 80s ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A solid compilation of dancefloor soul from the early 80s – one of the best yet in the long-running Nighttime Lovers series from Vinyl Masterpiece – with tracks by Luther Vandross, The Brothers Johnson, Cool Runners, Carl Carlton, Mtume, Freddie Jackson, The Chi-Lites, Stanley Clarke and more! The entire series has done a nice job of putting together bigger names and comparably forgotten ones – but even with the more legendary groups and singers, they go way past the obvious hits. It's a very well sequenced selection on Vol 16 – dancefloor ready soul and a nice set of songs! Includes "I Wanted Your Love" by Luther Vandross, "Kick It To The Curb" by Brothers Johnson, "Private Party" by Carl Carlton, "Nobody Else" by Karen Silver, "I Don't Understand It" by Scott White, "Stop What You're Doing" by The Chi-Lites, "Heaven Sent You" by Stanley Clarke, "Shout For Joy" by Dunn & Bruce Street and more. 13 tracks in all.
