this sure does look like a nice collection. I would have preferred it included the remixed medleys of hits by Diana Ross and the Supremes and the Jackson 5, though...

Great collection...but how could they not include Bonnie Pointer's "Heaven Must've Sent You" 12" remix?!

Excellent, excellent album! The Tempt's "Law of the Land" is considered one of disco's earliest "rumblings on the dance floor" along with Eddie Kendrick's "Keep On Truckin'" and the cult classic "Date with the Rain." Diana Ross's "Love Hangover" and Thelma Houston's "Don't Leave Me This Way" are acknowledged Legends but so are the underrated 1979 12'' mixes of "The Boss" and "Saturday Night, Sunday Morning." It is incredible to have Teena Marie's "Behind The Groove" and Rick James's "You and I" back on CD but I was especially knocked out by Carl Bean's soulful ode to gay tolerance "I Was Born This Way" which is just as timely now as it was in the seventies when it was first released! Motown promises to release more of this funky material in the future so I'm looking real foreward to that!
