AllMusic Review by

Boogie Cops & Disco Pimps, released in 2004 by Virgin in the U.K., compiles 39 funk and disco tracks on two CDs. It skims the basics of the era (Isaac Hayes' "Theme from Shaft," Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight," A Taste of Honey's "Boogie Oogie Oogie," the Spinners' "I'll Be Around," Wild Cherry's "Play That Funky Music," LaBelle's "Lady Marmalade") and throws in some cuts that aren't anthologized nearly as often (Hayes' "Pursuit of the Pimpmobile," the Whispers' "It's a Love Thing," MFSB's "K-Jee," the Real Thing's "Can You Feel the Force," Chicago's "Old Days"). There are several head-scratching picks, but this remains a fun-filled comp that's directly aimed at nobody, whether they're looking for a first '70s disco/funk compilation or hoping to obtain some rare goods.
