Following on from the highly successful first two editions of Dance Masters featuring the classics mixes from maestros Shep Pettibone and Arthur Baker, the spotlight turns to another remix legend, John Luongo. Boston born, John is one of the truly legendary DJ's and remixers of the Disco era. John got his break at Epic by overdubbing percussion from salt shakers and spoons onto a promo and then passing them back the tape. This resulted in him being flown to New York, and put in a studio (of his choice) to mix and produce Melba Moore's "You Stepped Into My Life". From this point everything he touched was a hit. He went onto remix Disco classics by Jackie Moore "This Time Baby", Dan Hartman "Vertigo Relight My Fire" and Patti Labelle "Music Is My Way Of Life". John, however was not afraid of remixing artists that didn't fit into the disco genre, and this attitude is borne out by the tracklisting of this compilation on which Gladys Knight and The Pips rub shoulders with ZZ Top, and Billy Idol and Baltimora appears alongside Bill Nelson and I Level. "if you played this whole thing, just put it on and didn't tell anyone it was me, they'd say ' what a great group of songs this is!'" - John Luongo. The collection is housed in a beautiful lift off lid box, with a 16 page booklet featuring foreword by Arthur Baker and in depth essay written by Alexis Petridis (Rock and Pop reviewer for The Guardian), and complete with rare photos from John's personal collection plus a limited signed insert. All tracks remastered by Nick Robbins at Sound Mastering. A 43 track 4 CD edition is also available, along with a 2 LP vinyl edition featuring 16 highlights.
