NOW That's What I Call 80s Dancefloor: Soul & Disco

£29.99

Released: 23rd February 2024. NOW Music is proud to present the third in our ongoing series of vinyl compilations, 'NOW That's What I Call 80s Dancefloor'. Each edition features an essential collection of tracks representing key genres of '80s Dance music. This volume, featuring 30 tracks across 2 LPs pressed on flaming yellow and orange vinyl, presents the best from the era of Soul and Disco. The first LP kicks off with Tina Turner's landmark remake of 'Let's Stay Together' - a testament to her timeless vocal prowess. Jocelyn Brown's 'Somebody Else's Guy', brings a fabulous fusion of Funk and Soul, followed by Gwen Guthrie's anthem 'Ain't Nothin' Goin' On But The Rent'. Womack & Womack's 'Teardrops' blend of captivating lyrics and rhythm, leads into Joyce Sims' 'Come Into My Life', before the Stock Aitken Waterman written & produced 'Say I'm Your Number One' from Princess. Loose Ends' 'Hangin' On A String' offers a smooth, jazz-infused sound, echoed by Will Downing's very first hit, 'A Love Supreme', which closes this side. Side B takes you on a whirlwind trip around the dancefloor with Whitney Houston's 'How Will I Know,' showcasing her stellar vocal range. Alexander O'Neal's 'Criticize' and Aretha Franklin's 'Who's Zoomin' Who?' bring a blend of irresistible beats. Lionel Richie's 'Dancing On The Ceiling' makes you want to move, and Laura Branigan's 'Self Control', alongside Imagination's debut single, 'Body Talk', offers a cross of Hi-NRG Disco with a sensual groove. Hi-Gloss's 'You'll Never Know' is a gem of smooth, elegant Soul to finish the first LP. Side A of LP 2 begins with the iconic duo Ashford & Simpson's 'Solid,' a celebration of enduring love. Up next is the #1 Disco anthem 'Fame' from Irene Cara, and Diana Ross's 'My Old Piano' - showcasing her unique ability to blend Pop with Soul on this Chic-produced classic. Donna Summer's Grammy-nominated single 'Love Is In Control (Finger On The Trigger)' fuses Disco with a Funk edge, while Odyssey's 'Inside Out' provides a smooth, and melody filled dance. Terri Wells's 'I'll Be Around' is a soulful delight, and Hall & Oates' 'I Can't Go For That (No Can't Do)' mixes Rock with Soul, and became a hugely sampled and influencial track. The side ends on a romantic note with Fat Larry's Band's 'Zoom'. The final side opens by showcasing Rufus and Chaka Khan's 'Ain't Nobody,' a masterpiece of Funk and Soul synergy. Womack & Womack make their second appearance with 'Love Wars', followed by Steve Arrington's 'Feel So Real' - a true example of the era's crossover with Disco and Soul. Miami Sound Machine's 'Dr. Beat' injects Latin-infused Pop rhythms, while Jermaine Stewart's biggest hit 'We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off' became a global dance-floor smash hit. Billy Ocean's Grammy award winner, 'Caribbean Queen (No More Love On The Run)', blends Soul, Disco and Pop, and Sister Sledge's 'Thinking Of You' is the perfect closer, uplifting and full of joy. A Limited edition pressing, and an essential addition to any collection. Perfect for collectors, DJs, and anyone who loves to get down to the greatest dance-floor-fillers of the '80s.
