VariousDisco Giants 4 – 20 Full Length Disco Classics Of The 80s ... CD
Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), 1980s. Used 2CD ... $13.99
80s grooves galore – a set that's more boogie, electro, and keyboard-oriented than you might guess from the "disco" in the title! There's no shimmering strings or Studio 54-styled rhythms – and instead, most tracks are from that great space between indie and mainstream soul in the early 80s – when new rhythms were bubbling up from the underground into the charts – and labels both big and small were taking good chances on the new styles of music! This 2CD package is filled with plenty of wonderful tracks from those years – including a bunch that don't often get reissued. Titles include "Reach Up" by Toney Lee, "Private Party" by Bobby Nunn, "Object Of My Desire" by Starpoint, "Sexomatic" by Bar-Kays, "Save Your Love For No 1" by Rene & Angela, "I've Got To Find A Way" by Zena Dejonay, "Is This The Future" by Fatback, "Sound Of Music (extended rmx)" by Dayton, "Burnin Up" by Michael Jonzun, "Hey DJ" by World Famous Supreme Team, "Hit & Run" by Total Contrast, and "I'll Keep On Loving You" by Princess.

Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), 1980s. Used 2CD ... $14.99
More soul than disco overall – but with more than enough groove to get heavy play on an 80s-styled dancefloor! Once again this great series brings back a host of heavy cuts from back in the days – post-disco numbers from those key early 80s years when soul started to cross over big again – thanks to catchy grooves like these! Titles include "She's Strange" by Cameo, "Square Biz" by Teena Marie, "We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off" by Jermaine Stewart, "Precious Little Diamond" by Fox The Fox, "The Medicine Song" by Stephanie Mills, "Trapped" by Colonel Abrams, "Another Man" by Barbara Mason, "Groove Line" by Heatwave, "Could This Be Love" by Ceejay, "Walkin The Line" by Brass Construction, "19" by Paul Hardcastle, "Livin For Your Love" by Melba Moore, "The Real Thing (West 26th Street mix)" by Jellybean, "Lifetime Love (hard club mix)" by Joyce Sims, "Spend The Night" by The Cool Notes, and "Night In New York" by Elbow Bones & The Racketeers.

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.

VariousDisco Giants Volume 10 – 20 Full Length Disco Classics Of The 80s ... CD
Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), 1980s. Used 2CD ... $8.99
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.

✨✧ VariousDisco Giants Volume 12 – 20 Full Length Disco Classics Of The 80s ... CD
Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), Mid 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A tightly grooving batch of dancefloor soul sounds from the 1980s – not the textbook disco you might expect from the title alone, but a double strength set of classic level groovers by BB & Q Band, Cheryl Lynn, Cashmere, Georgio, Glenn Jones and many more! Lean funky rhythms, some great little electro, boogie era production touches and other pivotal elements from the era, but with fresh soul vocals and soaring spirit, no doubt inspired by proper disco – and nice stuff from beginning to end! 2CDs with 10 full length jams each – including "All Night Long (She's Got The Moves I Live)" by BB & Q Band, "Lover's Lane" by Giorgio, "Not Tonight" by Junior, "Nail It To The Wall" by Stacy Lattisaw, "I Can't Lose With The Stuff I Use" by Khemistry, "Shake It Up Tonight" by Cheryl Lynn, "Shadows Of The Night" by Blue Feather, "Let The Music Turn You On" by Cashmere, "Funky Little Beat" by Connie and more.

VariousMasterpiece Volume 21 – The Ultimate Disco Funk Collection ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
Modern club masterpieces – all served up in this long-running series of high-quality 80s soul! The music here is a mix of modern soul, 80s groove, and some cool post-disco styles – and most cuts are in a relatively professional, polished mode – yet still come across with a vibe that's nicely different from the big chart hits of the time! The PTG/Vinyl Masterpiece label has been reissuing great 80s material for many years – and they really show their best side on collections like this – as you'll hear on tracks that include "It's Your Turn To Cry" by Cornelius Oliphant, "What You Want" by Platinum Hook, "If You Want My Love" by Shakatak, "Last Chance" by Splashband, "We're Here To Rock You" by Galaxxy, "Yellow Pages" by General Caine, "Twennynine (the rap)" by Twennynine with Lenny White, "Never Take Your Love Away" by Future Image, "You Got Me Where I Want To Be" by Sarhon Brown, and "I'll Be There" by Terri Wells.

PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Keep the party going all night long – with another great set of grooves from this long-running series! The music here is similar to the other collections on the PTG/Vinyl Masterpiece label – a strong focus in the best sounds of the 80s – not the underground work or indie sides – but overlooked soul and club cuts that were bubbling under in the mainstream at the time – and which are wonderfully revived here! Titles include "Celebrate Your Love" by Executive, "In The Night (ext version)" by Richard Jon Smith, "Just In Time" by Raw Silk, "Make Up Your Mind" by Val Young, "Stop Playin With My Love" by Steve Drayton, "Let Me Hold You" by Sonique, "Pick Me Up" by Electric Mind, "My Love Is Hot" by Cool Notes, and "Don't Give Me Up" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes.
