The local Black music scene was centred heavily on live orchestral funk.

Of course, as was true when first hearing the songs, I liked DC Groove - Various - Go Go Get Down: Pure Ghetto Funk From Washington DC (CD) more than others.
But nevertheless, it was a fun compilation of the some of the most popular tunes during that Disco era. If you are searching for a good general disc to relive your days in this period, I recommend this disc as well as the second one. Those are only ones I have in the collection, not wanting to overspend but still get a good cross-section of party dance music from some of the good ole days!
Hot Stuff - Donna Summer 5. I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor 6. Knock on Wood - Amil Stewart 9. Flashback - Imagination Love Hangover - Diana Ross Cuba - Gibson Brothers Funkytown - Lipps, Inc. The first six tracks are an excellent beginning to this CD. Jeff "Skunk" Baxter's guitar solo in "Hot Stuff" is worth the price of admission.
This recording of Gloria Gaynor's disco anthem "I Will Survive" contains the exciting piano introduction. Track 6 has a catchy bass guitar part.
Track 7 is one of the few weak ones on this album. As they used to say on American Bandstand, tracks 8, 10, 15, 16 and 17 "have a good beat and are good to dance to. Tracks 11, 13, 19 and 20 are among the best on the CD and among the most recognizable hits of the disco era. Track 12 contains good samples of other disco hits. Track 14 is irritating proto-rap. Track 18 has unintelligible lyrics and is not one of Marvin Gaye's best.
Track 19 has a propulsive bass guitar riff. The last track is not disco music, so doesn't belong on this collection. Brings back memories of platform shoes, bell bottom pants, and big hair I recently purchased this along with the other two cd's in this series. Together, the three cd's contain most of the disco hits from the 70's and early 80's. Unlike most of the other cd's and compilations I found online, the songs from the Pure Disco series are from the original artists and not by cover bands.
Excellent value for a disco party. Yes and I bought this one. Just another great cd. Like I said great memories and music. Great dance in your living room with family and friends. Great music. Love this CD - brought back lots of great memories. Great songs!! I would recommend it to anyone interested in this type of music. An excellent compilation of great dance songs although if you are not really "discount.
