A Night To Remember - 2xCD compilation of 70s and 80s Dance Hits

This is a great 32-song compilation put together by DJ Tony Okungbowa and JoJo Flores that highlights some great moments in dance music from the 70s and 80s. The release is available as a 2xCD physical version or digital download. So many good songs it is hard to even get started highlighting them all. Some of my personal favorites included in this collection are "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life", "Double Dutch Bus", "Let's Love Dance" and "Keep On Jumpin'". As you can see, the release does a great job showcasing a variety of sounds from that era, and the common theme is these were all fun to dance to in the clubs.

from the press release:

“A Night to Remember was an opportunity to deliver a DJ playlist to a wider audience, music that we would listen to ourselves,” says Tony Okungbowa. “People always ask me, what kind of music do you listen to? What do you like? And this is it. This is the music I love.”Jojoflores continues, “This project was a journey through the past for us musically. When we added in France Joli’s “Gonna Get Over You” I was flushed with memories of growing up. It’s just such a good feeling, so uplifting. I hope our listeners will enjoy the record in the same way and that it will take them on a journey of their own.”
