I think those Nuphonic _Loft_ compilations did more than anything to
turn around my opinion of the much-maligned genre. There were even
some bootleg Loft comps floating around that were just about as good.
No one's mentioned Strut's _Disco Not Disco_ comps, which *really*
show how far the genre-boundaries could stretch, bleeding into
no-wave & punky stuff while still retaining the extended dancefloor
style. AND-- there's a totally head-blasting Arthur Russell cut on
the latest one (_Disco Not Disco 2_).
Anyone know anything about Skylite? They've got a great cut called
"Smile" on DJ Dmitri's _Disco Forever_ comp.
Some other great disco:
anything by Dexter Wansel
Johnny Hammond's _Gears_, _Gambler's Life_ & _Forever Taurus_
anything by the Mike Theodore Orchestra
...and c'mon, the Trammps?
Totally agreed about Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop 'Til You Get
Enough"-- I'd also go to bat for other pop-disco: Cheryl Lynn!
Andrea True Connection! Ah, good times.
