AllMusic Review by

Great Disco Hits is a fairly average collection of ten disco smashes, most of which are unfortunately presented in their abbreviated (and therefore inferior) radio-edit versions. Not everything here smacks of obviousness -- there's no "YMCA," "I Will Survive," "You Sexy Thing," or "Play That Funky Music" -- with relatively less-beaten-to-death dancefloor hits from Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band ("I'll Play the Fool"), Odyssey ("Native New Yorker"), Melba Moore ("This Is It"), Gladys Knight ("It's Better Than a Good Time"), and Faith, Hope & Charity ("To Each His Own"). This is a decent, if brief and scattered, represenation of one of the most unjustifiably maligned eras in pop-music history.
