High Energy Double Dance - Volume.7 1987 80 Minutes Non-Stop mix (2LP Set)

High Energy Double Dance
80 Minutes Non-Stop mix (2LP Set) 1987

If there is one album to be classified as the best High-Energy ever this has to be it.
I remember this came out 1987 when I started standard 7 (Grade 9). This was really when I first got exposed to dance music. The DJ's sneaked in "Male Stripper" when they could (they were from a local club called "Champagne Bowl") - surf shops, cars and portable radios pumped this during the day , the drummies marched to it at functions and it was alive in clubs through the night.

The tracklisting speaks for itself, floor killers by Latin Lover, The Nasty Boys, Fred Ventura (debut??) Modern Talking, Michael Bedford, Patty Ryan, Rudy & Co, Koto , Chikeria, Ken Laszlo, Aleph (Fire On The Moon - Brilliant!!!) and Paul Lekakis.
A triple dose from Man 2 Man: Energy Is Eurobeat (so hot they had to include another remix!), Sex Symbol, Mexico with a little bit of Male Stripper mixed in (probably just to piss our teachers off - snigger).

Another good mix by Andrew Wood. Stunning cover by Lee Selsick - this "High - Energy Dude" was plastered all over the place and became a symbol for the newly evolved genre. As dance compilations go no other one sticks with me like this one does, for many reasons. High-Energy Volume 7 was being played everywhere in 1987!
