    Brilliant compilation of essential Italo disco classics compiled by disco connoisseur Steve 'Fela' Kotey of Chicken Lips! The revived Strut label is going from strength to strength at the moment with a string of essential releases! This compilation gives a great overview of the range of sounds that the term Italo has come to encompass while delivering the goods in terms of supplying a timely reissue of some rare and sought-after tracks! Italy's unique contribution to dance music has never sounded more influential and this compilation is certainly a 'must buy' for any fan of Metro Area, Daniel Wang, or I-F! Highly recommended!
