Commento/Nota:
Disco fantastico per e nel suo genere, che ho conosciuto all'epoca che uscì e che ho fortunosamente ritrovato qualche anno fa in versione originale USA. Se ben bisogna dire che uscirono i 4 Disco Mix Promo rarissimi in precedenza (1977 credo), che quasi nessuno possedeva ed erano per tutti un miraggio...
Qui sono riunite alcune fra le cose migliori della Salsoul Records rivisitate da uno dei migliori 'remixers' e DJs dell'epoca, lo scomparso Walter Gibbons.
Pezzi incredibili, adattati alla 'Disco Mania' dell'epoca con abbondanza di percussioni e sequenze in dubbing. Gli artisti li trovate nella tracklist, e non mi dilungo oltremodo a parlare di un LP che è sicuramente rimasto nella storia della Disco Music come uno dei più marcanti. Vi proponiamo due splendidi pezzi, uno delle First Choice e l'altro della Salsoul Orchestra.
'It's good for the soul''...

Review:
Salsoul's Disco Madness album of special Walter Gibbons mixes is essential for anyone with even a passing interest in his work. There are way too many great tracks on here to go into in detail, but every last one is a killer. Walter was really on fire here - not so much of his madness that was still to come, just real dancefloor perfection on every song. Big drums, lots of tape edits, proper disco style.
