Mighty Real: Greatest Dance Hits. Living Proof Remastered. Released: Jan Hits sums up disco sensation Sylvester's years 1977-1981 with the Fantasy label. These years include most of the artist's most important output, particularly dancefloor hits like You Make Me Feel Mighty Real, Dance Disco Heat, and Body Strong. The album is shorter and less comprehensive than Fantasy's earlier Greatest Hits compilation, but all the same offers a good and, since it's one CD rather than two, likely more affordable introduction to one of the most exciting and energetic figures of the disco era.
