Maharaja ’80s Disco -30th Anniversary-
Release Date: 11/5/14
Price: 2315 yen

Well, this is a surprise. Just when I thought FARM were moving towards EDM only, they announce a tie-up compilation with Maharaja. What makes this especially odd is that Maharaja releases were usually Avex’s domain. Anyway, there are 26 songs planned, and apparently they’ll only be using the original versions (i.e., no covers).

Let’s Dance -Super 80s Disco Hits-
Release Date: 12/7/1112/21/111/18/122/8/12 ⇨ 3/28/12
Price: 2857 yen

2-disc compilation from EMI celebrating Roppongi disco hits. As with Mogra Mix, this was originally supposed to come out in December, but EMI has postponed the release date a few times before settling on a March 28 release date. Thankfully, they mostly avoided songs that already appeared on Dancemania Sparkle Classics. And unlike Dancemania Sparkle Classics, this release is not a non-stop mix. Instead, it has full-length songs.

The early list didn’t have David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance,” but thankfully the final track list has it as the lead track. 😀

Songs selected by DJ Osshy of Roppongi Nirvana.

Let’s Dance -Super 80s Disco Hits-
Release Date: 12/7/1112/21/111/18/122/8/12 ⇨ 3/28/12
Price: 2857 yen

2-disc compilation from EMI celebrating Roppongi disco hits. As with Mogra Mix, this was originally supposed to come out in December, but EMI has postponed the release date a few times before settling on a March 28 release date. The delay was probably for the best, or else it would’ve been in direct competition with the similarly themed Dancemania Sparkle Classics. Songs selected by DJ Osshy of Roppongi Nirvana.

Disco no Tetsujin
Release Date: 11/23/11
Price: 2095 yen

Sequel to last year’s Disco no Tatsujin (Tatsujin = Master, Tetsujin = Iron Man). Somehow Boys Town Gang’s version of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” makes another appearance despite already being on the first release, but the rest of the track list is different. I believe this CD contains full-length versions, so nonstop mix fans should stay away.
