Inevitably, the old shit still gets in our heads. This double-12 compilation captures a wonderful, original and obscure fusion of late-'70s disco with early-'80s studio mechanics in songs that are equal parts deep disco, calypso, dub and funk, all from the West Indies, Caribbean and Africa. Between Casual T's "Hands Off" and Billie Cole's "Extra Carefully," this'll take you to a strange and intriguing place.
