About this deal

Warner Chappell Music Ltd/Windswept Pacific Music Ltd. ℗ 1999 Progress Records Ltd, under exclusive license to Mercury Records Ltd. (London). Licensed from Universal Music Licensing Division. Again theres enough on the compilation to save it, but also a whole bunch which have me diving toward the 'skip' button.

Peer Musik. ℗ 1999 BMG Berlin Musik GmbH/Laustrak. Sample of "Mambo No5" performed by Perez Prado. ℗ 1959 BMG Entertainment/RCA U.S. Issued under license BMG Entertainment International UK & Ireland Ltd. This is undoubtedly the best in the series, at least in my opinion. Both CD's in this album seem to focus purely on dance music other than a few slower songs here and there. This is really the defining release with the quality of both CDs being top-notch and never faltering. Universal Music Publishing Ltd. ℗ 1999 Bliss Corporation, under exclusive license to Warner Music UK Ltd.. Licensed courtesy of Warner Music UK Ltd.. Skint Music Publishing/Frankly Music. ℗ 1999 Multiply Records. Features the sample "Does It Feel Good" performed by B.T. Express courtesy of Roadshow Music Corporation and written by W. Hall (Jnr) courtesy of Frankly Music.This album is a mixed bag, containing a good CD while the other was very flawed mainly for including off-genre music. This is where the series sadly started to really dip in quality. Here we have an album to represent 1996 and you would think that there would be a lot of actual dance music right? Guess again. The first CD is weaker, but the good provides us with Make Luv, Round & Round, Loneliness, Like A Prayer, Touch Me, American Dream (especially), Rapture and Lazy. Everything else is either nonsense or questionable, such as including Groovejet from 1999, or songs that have already been seen in the series. EMI Music Publishing Ltd/All Boys Music Ltd/BMG Music Publishing Ltd. ℗ 1999 Zomba Records Ltd. Licensed courtesy of Jive Records. I am not sure if this is an official album in the series but I am going to assume it is. The label is Virgin as with the rest of the series and it is compiled by Ashley Abram much like the others. Warner Chappell Music Ltd/Windswept Pacific Music Ltd. Produced for Sunship Productions. Recorded at Roundhouse Studios and Sunship Studios. ℗ 2000 Wildstar Records Ltd. Licensed courtesy of Wildstar Records Ltd.

Much like the 2002 release, this one had a lot going for it and things were heading in the right direction. However, many off-genre songs and questionable choices lower the overall quality. This was the last release for six years before they brought out that hideous revival in 2009.


I think I must have a serious soft spot for 1995 dance as my favourite 'dance zone' album is also from 1995 (Level 5). This is the beginning of the long running Best Dance Album In The World Series. While some may disagree, I believe it does indeed live up to that name, or at least for the first five releases. The series began here in 1993 and is still going today, although with huge gap years recently. Peer Music. Produced and mixed for Shaft Productions. ℗ 1999 Wonderboy Records. Licensed from Universal Music Licensing Division. Step By Step. Produced at Peak Top Studios, D'dorf, Germany. ℗ 1999 Multiply Records. Licensed courtesy of Multiply Records.

Serious Worldwide Publishing/Chrysalis Music. ℗ 1999 Incentive Music Ltd. Licensed courtesy of Ministry Of Sound. Jewel Music Publishing Co Ltd. ℗ 2000 Fundamental Records. "In Your Arms" contains elements from "Rescue Me" performed by Fontella Bass used courtesy of MCA Records under license from Universal Music Special Markets, Inc. The series continues with its first sequel here, also in 1993. This album is an improvement over the first release purely because the quality of both CD's overall is better. The first album had a fantastic first CD, and while the second was very good it did bring down the overall score somewhat. Here, both CD's are really great and focuses again on dance music between 1987-1993.I think this was the first one I bought on release (or rather had it bought for me). I would have been 12 years old and heavily into music at this point. Whilst it's not one of my favourites out of the series, it does rank highly with me as this was, quite literally, everything that was being played on the radio that I was lapping up! CD2 is a bit all over the place at the start. Dance music goes out the window in favour yet again of RnB and Rap. Not all bad, but still a bit of a curveball, stay on target!
