AllMusic Review by

The aptly-named Party People Presents Ladies Night collects four decades' worth of fun, danceable music especially for the ladies on two discs. Spanning '60s soul classics like Aretha Franklin's "Respect," Ike & Tina Turner's "Nutbush City Limits" and Betty Everett's "It's In His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song)" to '70s disco like Donna Summer's "Hot Stuff" and Kool & the Gang's title track, to '80s and '90s dance-pop like Shannon's "Let the Music Play" and Ce Ce Peniston's "Finally," as well as more recent tracks by All Saints, Mis-Teeq and Mary Mary, the collection is eclectic but never forced-sounding. Other standout tracks include Faith Evans' "Love Like This," LaBelle's "Lady Marmalade," the Weather Girls' "It's Raining Men" and Freda Payne's "Band of Gold." Whether it's on the dancefloor or in the living room, this collection is an uplifting soundtrack to almost any girls' night out.
