Disco and funk combine on Phat Trax: The Best of Old School, Vol. 5, which pays tribute to the sounds that inspired hip-hop.
Rolling, voluptuous basslines, uptight guitars, and vibrant brass sections drive tracks like the Gap Band's "You Dropped a Bomb on Me," the Emotions' "Best of My Love," and Cheryl Lynn's "Got to Be Real," bridging the gap between funk and disco and providing countless rap and hip-hop artists with ample sampling material. Heatwave's "Groove Line," Natalie Cole's "Be Thankful," GQ's "Disco Nights (Rock Freak)," and the Dazz Band's "Joystick" are among the other highlights of this funky, stylish compilation, which documents just how integral these songs were to hip-hop's development.

Another strong release in this series. Somebody at Rhino decided (and correctly so) that the tracks should be released for the listener's full pleasure, not chopped up or watered down (also known as an "edited" version). Can't go wrong with most of these tracks here...although, I must admit, after taking a closer look at some of the titles,I have a question: Was Rhino merely re-issuing a series or telling a story? You be the judge.
There are also a couple of "sub-plots" here...most people believed that the song "White Horse" by Laid Back referred to cocaine...hmmm! And...wanna impress your friends? Drop this trivia on them: What early 80s disco group was Keith Sweat in? The answer is...GQ! He was the bassist, Keith "Sabu" Crier. Crier...get it? Keith SWEAT? All that damn begging...but that's all right, he's still the man!
If you don't have this, better pick it up for a decent price while you still can!
