Original Hits sums up disco sensation Sylvester's years (1977-1981) with the Fantasy label. These years include most of the artist's most important output, particularly dancefloor hits like "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)," "Dance (Disco Heat)," and "Body Strong." In addition to these stellar dance tracks, songs like "Cry Me a River" and a live version of "You are My Friend" emphasize Sylvester's warmth and soulfulness. The album is shorter and less comprehensive than Fantasy's earlier Greatest Hits compilation, but all the same offers a good and, since it's one CD rather than two, likely more affordable introduction to one of the most exciting and energetic figures of the disco era.
A tribute to a top artist
Sylvester's music will tmake you feel mighty real. Don't stop...you are moving me...! Too bad his talent left this world in 1988 due to AIDS. His art is missed in this new dance era...
Sylvester...The Original Hits
It's about time i-Tunes made a Sylvester recording available! It is my hope ALL of Sylvester's work will be made available. This album is the absolute best....it's a must have for anyone who still appreciates good music from the disco era. Sylvester was one of a kind....ALL of these songs will get you up and dancing!
I grew up dancing to his music. It was the best time of my life. When disco died, talent went with it. Thank goodness for the oldies.
