Consumer Guide Album

Get Down and Boogie [Casablanca, 1976]
Though the claim on the jacket is excessive--it's not "38 minutes and 47 seconds of continuous play" unless one of your eunuchs turns it over for you--this disco-oriented and -segued compilation from the premier disco label is long overdue. Two Donna Summers, two Parliaments (which way do they disco?), and good filler. Finds: Jeannie Reynolds's "The Fruit Song" (she likes bananas) and Giorgio's "I Wanna Funk With You Tonight" (a/k/a "What'd He Say?"). B+
