Unlike a lot of Salsoul compilations that were released throughout the '90s and early 2000s, Salsoul Classics doesn't mess around with any alternate or unreleased mixes, and it doesn't throw in a couple unknown curveballs to keep things interesting for know-it-alls. Instead, it does just as it advertises and sticks to the most popular singles released by the label. They're all highlights, but Instant Funk's "I Got My Mind Made Up," Inner Life's "Moment of My Life," First Choice's "Dr. Love," and Double Exposure's "My Love Is Free" have remained particularly fresh throughout the decades. No abbreviated edits here, either -- the whole thing's ready for the dancefloor (as it should be).
