A comprehensive collection of the music that lit up a thousand dance floors in the mid ’70s and early ’80s, inspiring a revolution in the music world. This collection pulls killer tracks from respected and influential independent record labels on opposite coasts—San Francisco’s Fantasy Records and New York City’s Vanguard Records—and is a veritable must-have for fans of the pioneering movement from which emerged the birth of the “remix,” an innovative musical practice that prefigured house, techno and hip-hop.

For Discos Only is a snapshot of what was the most thrilling music to hit the dance floor, before (among other factors) anti-gay and anti-minority sentiment, as well as a complete market oversaturation of over-produced disco-pop from the major labels trying to cash in on “the fad” hastened the genre’s demise. Dance music—especially the gritty, obscure kind collected here—went safely back underground by the mid-’80s. It would later reemerge to spark house, electro, techno, garage, hip-hop and a multitude of other dance sub-genres, but never again capture the nation’s attention like disco briefly did.

So don’t resist the rhythm. Discover the yearning, the funk, the driving beat, the strings and the thrills of Fantasy and Vanguard’s disco catalogs. Dig it!

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
