Disco Heat: The Fantasy Years 1977-1981 celebrates the late disco/dance music pioneer with 26 tracks on two CDs drawn from all six of his albums for the label, as well as the rare 12-inch Disco Versions that kept the dancefloors burning. In addition to crossover smashes including "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" and "Dance (Disco Heat)," the collection offers an array of remarkable covers. Every one of Sylvester's charting songs for Fantasy is represented here. Featuring the production of Motown veteran Harvey Fuqua and the vocals of Martha Wash and Izora Rhodes Armstead (a,k.a. Two Tons o'Fun and later known as The Weather Girls) as well as groundbreaking synth work from Patrick Cowley, Disco Heat traces Sylvester's Fantasy career with an emphasis on the bold dance music he made, underscoring the significance of black and gay artists to the creation of disco itself. The deluxe 24-page booklet features new liner notes by TSD's Joe Marchese, an introduction by soul historian Sharon Davis, and numerous rare photographs of the artist. Audio has been newly remastered by Mike Milchner at SonicVision.
