Madonna — You Can Dance (Sire Records)
Being how Madonna got her start in the clubs of New York City, the release of her first remix album back in 1987 was definitely a fond tip of the hat to her disco roots as she turned a corner on her own ascent into pop superstardom in the mid-80s. With a primary focus on the hits from her eponymous debut LP (which is also being reissued for Record Store Day as a replica of a rare 1983 Japanese import picture disc), You Can Dance saw Madge working with some of the best producers and remixers of the moment including Jellybean Benitez, Nile Rodgers, David Cole of C + C Music Factory and Shep Pettibone to reimagine songs like “Holiday,” “Everybody” and “Into The Groove” before moving on to her Like A Prayer period, which cemented her place on '80s pop’s Mt. Rushmore.
