    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.
