What is the best classic 12" dance tune on Ben Liebrand's "Grand 12-Inches 2" compilation?

These comps have me like ooh, dynamic range, there it is. Even the tunes that I love a bit less are a pleasure to listen to.

Shame he couldn't get the Latin Rascals' remix of Axel F as it totally smokes the originals.

The odd thing is that the Latin Rascals version of "Axel F" is included on this earlier Liebrand-curated disco comp:

On his site the notes for this volume say a decent master (of the Latin Rascals version) couldn't be found. Maybe the one on that comp wasn't up to snuff.

Do you get the upgrades, Tuomas?

I have that "Disco Madness" comp, I don't remember the Latin Rascals version having any issues with sound, but I haven't listened to it in years...

No, I haven't gotten the updates, they're only available if you order the discs through Liebrand's own site, right? I did that a couple of times, but the delivery prices were a bit ridiculous, cos the only delivery option he offered was DHL, you couldn't choose regular mail.

There's a way to subscribe to all the updates if you bought them elsewhere - it's a bit wacky, I think you send a photo of a complete set and pay €20. Something like that. But you can get the ones for the volumes you but direct anyway.

Notable on this one is there's supposedly a full version of Disco Circus (the one on the CD is partly from a vinyl copy and quite noticeable.)

Actually according to the Discogs entry that's not a thing, not sure where I got that from. Still quite a few alternatuve versions.

I had never heard "Underwater" before today. It is now in my top 5 disco songs of all time.

It is indeed awesome! There's a nice cover version of it by Kat Mandu too.
