Various Artists – Magnum Opus 3

For some people, Donna Summer’s unedited 17-minute “Love To Love You Baby” was equal to “White Riot”, and rightly takes pride of place on this lovely two-CD set of dance classics. “I Found Lovin'”, “Funkin’ For Jamaica”, “Hangin’ On A String” and “Glow Of Love” are all present in their inalienable wonder, as are Cher’s original version of Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s “Take Me Home”, lesser known jewels like Dee Dee Sharp’s “Easy Money”, and Machine’s glorious August Darnell-written masterpiece of socialist Hi-NRG, “There But For The Grace Of God Go I”. Wonderful, imperishable music.
