I have been collecting these 12" 80s albums since the beginning, being a child of the 70s, my musical penchant has always been the 80s.
From the opening bars of The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on the Wheels of Steel, stealing scraps and riffs from a hugely eclectic mix of influences (including my fave - Another One Bites the Dust), a glorious mix of I Feel For You, which never seems to have been available on the UK 12"s, through another Arthur Baker produced masterpiece "Walking on Sunshine" by Rockers Revenge, and reminding me just how good the original SOS bands "Just Be Good To Me" really was, this disc covers the earlier 80s club tracks perfectly.
Moves on from above, covering mid 80s classics, Feel So Real, filling spaces on the dance floors of the day, Cameo being (She's) Strange as ever, and ending with yet more Arthur Baker classic production Neneh Cherry's Buffalo Stance.
Follows the trend and moves to the later stages of the 80s, Mantronix's mad house anthem bigging it up front, Bomb the Bass Beating Dis drum as supplied by a lot of samples (although I think this may be a slightly cut down, resampled, more copyright friendly version than I remember. I will have to refer to the original 12" to check) the pounding early house of Darryl Pandy on Love Can't Turn Around, and a surprise appearance for an early Stock Aitken Waterman lost classic Sydney Youngblood's "If Only I Could", closing out with a couple of acid house classics courtesy of Ten City and S-Express.
on the whole, a nicely nostalgic jaunt through the classic 80s dancefloors.
