AllMusic Review by

Two smoking uncut disks courtesy of Salsoul Records, the home of Philadelphia disco. Inner Life's update of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" runs 10:27 and Loretta Holloway's "Hit And Run" 11 minutes. The all-encompassing 20 tracks include Joe Bataan's salsa makeover of Gil Scott-Heron's "In the Bottle"; over 19 minutes of Double Exposure, "My Love Is Free" and "Ten Percent"; three sultry steppers from First Choice; Instant Funk's "I Got My Mind Made Up"; Love Committee's jubilant "Just As Long As I Got You"; and Eddie Holman's explosive "This Will Be a Night to Remember." An essential collection that will transform disco haters into lovers.
