Hey I've been digging disco for about a year now and there is no shortage of good 12"s and 45s out there but often when it comes to buying LPs you're lucky to get about one, two or three dope tracks.So what are some LPs are out there that contain at least 70% ? recommend away...

    Maybe more funk than disco, though.

    DISCOFUNKBA... OK, time for some new schtick. Yeah, more raw sounding than your average Disco.

    Nothing obscure, but you can't front on these:

    great if you want the best of prelude.
    this is not an lp...more of a comp of 12"s from other artists.
    the sharon redd has about 3 different mixes, one from a 12" that i prefer over the mix on this comp.
    shep was killin it tho !

    brass construction 1, 2, 3 ,4 etc...
    skyy
    mass production
    slave
    chic
    logg
    calendar
    taanya gardner
    shalimar
    rinder & lewis ( 7 deadly sins)
    crown heights affair
    heatwave
    atmosfear
    strutt
    first choice

    most of these groups with the exception of 2 or 3 all have a number of lps that are easy to find.
    some of the titles border in boogie ( logg/ slave)...especially the prelude titles, as they did not include lorraine johnson on that comp

    Pillow Talk is that classic mellow disco - a sure guilty pleasure.

    This one too, electro cosmic stuff:





  • I would go nuts if I had to listen to this album from start to end. Those twisted sounds that are on top of the music throughout gets pretty annoying after a while. At least to me. I can much better get down to their other LP with the black border on the cover...."Atmosphere strut" or something, is the title.

  • I absolutely love this lp

    Definitely a personal favourite of mine too. Very soulful, and such a nice production alltogether.

    Also one of the obvious ones to mention is Tommy Stewarts LP.

    Youre looking for st8 albums and not comps right?

    Disco Lps is almost an oxymoron. I cant think of an ALBUM that is st8 ahead disco on all the tracks.
    And all the tracks being above average.

    yes sir, but if you alert me to dope comps i'm not going to front.

    But if youre coppin comps you might as well stay w/ the 12" for the bigger grooves. Especially if your playin those thangs out. Disco is really a singles format.

    kon & amir/uncle juniors friday fish fry/ the cleaning.
    shameless self plug, not just disco...but the disco on this comp is top notch.

    panache is pretty good
    executive suite ( patrick adams) not the 12" from down south...that is good too tho

    cop the p&p comps..probably the best raw disco sound period.

    dimitri from paris has some good comps as well.

    Hmm, looks a bit late for Disco. Boogie? Moder?


  • executive suite ( patrick adams) not the 12" from down south...that is good too tho

    Are you talking about that "Executive Suite 1" LP only released in Europe? I always considered this soul. It has two slamming tracks "When The Fuels Runs Out" and "You Believe In Me".

    The rare as hell O.T. Sykes LP is a facemelter.


    the disco gold lp isn't really disco... patti jo = not disco.

  • patti jo = not disco.

    That's rather arbitrary... what would you call it then?

    Imo believe in me is definetly disco...really disco is just soul/r&b with a danceable beat played in "discoteques"
    strings and a steady beat.
