RC: Refer to previous listings for material not described here. This is a truly excellent collection of the best material from Zapp and Roger, plus a few remixes and other oddities. The focus is on his clean and lean dance tunes, like "More Bounce", "So Ruff", "Do It Roger" "Dance Floor", etc. While some of their fluffier material is absent, quirky little gems like "Blue" and "Bucket of Blood" aren't here, either. My favorite here may be the remix of "Midnight Hour", with Satch coming in with an excellent, shimmering sax solo. The "Mega Medley" is also kind of fun. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone curious about Zapp/Roger without wanting to go all the way in; this gives you an excellent feel for what's on there. It's particularly valuable since several of the source albums for this set are out of print.

The album is in print and should be easy to find. The cover features Roger holding up a ball with all of the assorted Zapp/Roger covers on it.
