AllMusic Review by

Turn the Beat Around collects ten original disco singles, including Vicki Sue Robinson's title track, Hues Corporation's "Rock the Boat," Andrea True Connection's "More More More," and Odyssey's "Native New Yorker." Though the album also features songs by Trammps, Gladys Knight & the Pips, and Melba Moore, the tracks included aren't the biggest hits or best-known songs from these artists. That doesn't make these songs bad, but since Turn the Beat Around features so few songs to begin with, the low number of well-known disco songs it actually has makes somewhat difficult to recommend to anyone looking for a solid collection of the era's hits.
