    well there you have it the 70's HISTORY of American "dance music culture " all wrapped up in one convenient package.

    uh huh..... for starters this is from 1968:



    but what do facts matter in this day and age .... stick whatever claims on the cover and see if it sells

    Could it be that sometimes tracks are discovered a few year later?

    I don't like this collection at all and do not feel that it is a good representation of American Dance Music culture in the 70s. Many of these songs/recordings are totally unknown.

    London-based author Tim Lawrence spent the last year compiling this latest album, which features both well-known and rare tracks from the '70s, with favourites of esteemed DJs like Larry Levan, David Mancuso, Nicky Siano and more. Artists featured include James Brown, Gladys Knight And The Pips, the Jackson 5, Wilson Pickett and Chuck Mangione. This first volume comes as a double-LP.

    Ok so the guy that came up with this list wasn't from America? That's why it did not register with me at all.

    It's not that the music is terrible here...just too lofty a claim that these song's are somehow the 'special' ones ....above and beyond hundreds of others we could just as randomly combine and claim to represent.
    Now maybe this set explains the reason behind the choice of each song, that would be interesting .

    Hey Marv, likely you have , but have you ever checked out the second half of DON"T KNOCK MY LOVE ? It's a trip , in more ways than one, and I can see how the loft party crowd took to its ambience.

    This project first came out I think in 2008. I suspect it intended to release more volumes with many more selections depending on response.

    an additional flaw is the inclusion of the uncut 15 minute version of HUM ALONG AND DANCE . While the album version was most likely heard in some parts of the 'American dance music culture' of the seventies , the uncut version was not - as it didn't see the light of day until around 2004.



    fascinating to listen to Hal Davis tapping into Norman Whitfield here though .
