Review

Review Text This expansive compilation focuses on a series of disco songs released on theT.K. Records label, most of which date from the mid- to late '70s. Despite the seemingly limiting "disco" tag, The Best of T.K. Disco presents a nicely diverse cross section of material from this genre: Indeed, the music covers everything from the lush, almost symphonic Euro-disco of Beautiful Bend's "That's the Feeling" to the earthy, bass-driven funk stylings of Uncle Louie's "Full Tilt Boogie." Along the way, it unearths plenty of lesser-known disco tunes that will delight hardcore fans of this style: Tempest Trio's "Love Machine" mixes symphonic lushness and percussive grooves to create a multi-layered dance track and "Plato's Retreat" by Joe Thomas is a cheeky tribute to the famous adult's club of the title that features a unique jazz-scat vocal break. A few of the inclusions don't live up to the level of these highlights (Quartz's "Beyond the Clouds" is a rather hookless synthesizer showcase that sounds very chintzy when stacked up against the otherwise richly produced tracks here), but The Best of T.K. Disco offers enough solid disco tracks to make it worth a spin to dance music enthusiasts on the hunt for lesser-known dance epics. ~ Donald A. Guarisco
