AllMusic Review by

An intriguing double-disc collection packaged by Sony Australia, Real Disco certainly doesn't include much in the way of commercial hits -- only two or three come close -- but it does balance middling obscurities with a few nice tracks stretching the form. The compilers looked back to 1974's "Lady Marmalade" (Labelle) and ahead to the mid-'80s ("Rockit" by Herbie Hancock, "Lovergirl" by Teena Marie), all the way into house-pop of the '90s (Sunscreem's jubilant "Love U More"). It also collects disco nuggets from Liza Minnelli, Johnnie Taylor, Dan Hartman, the Jacksons, Tina Charles, and Pauline Henry. Certainly not your older brother's disco collection, but an interesting accumulation of curiosities nonetheless.
