Sunshine Love: Yacht Disco and Marina Soul (an AOR Disco Mix) by Jeffrey Boozer and Martijn Soetens

Sunshine Love is a transatlantic collaboration between two of our favourite contributors: Oakland's Jeffrey Boozer of Smoothday, and Holland's Martijn Soetens, the man behind the Jeff Porcaro Collection and Westcoast Sounds of the Netherlands series. It features a host of soul, disco and yacht rock rarities, and demonstrates once again why Boozer and Soetens are two of the leading lights in the rediscovery of lost smoothness from the late 1970s and '80s.

This is terrific - the mellow groove never lets up! 'Rare groove' can sometimes be the aural equivalent of 'straight to video' but not in this case. Exceptionally well-chosen tracks by someone that knows his music - and how to put a playlist together. 5/5. Peter in Chiswick, West London
