"If a dividing line could be drawn between the eras of gritty funk and groovy disco, it would probably fall precisely at 1975 -- making this compilation, originally released that year, a perfect snapshot of the moment up-tempo, danceable funk was cleaning itself up for the nightclub. Tracks like Lillian Hale's -erce 'Don't Boom Boom,' Brother Soul's breakbeat classic 'Cookies' and the rare groove nugget 'Bim Sala Bim' by Hudson County all retain the tough edge of the early '70s sound but earned a reputation as crowd favorites in the burgeoning discotheques that would rule the latter half of the decade. This newly expanded edition augments the original tracklist by adding seven compatible tracks, including choice cuts from the Gap Band's early days and stepper's gems from Tasha Thomas and Sound Experience." Also features: Madeira, Con-Funk-Shun, The People, The Third Time Around, T.C.B., Marboo, and Breakwater Boogie Man Orchestra.
