5.0 out of 5 stars so fantastic and so perfectly 80S! 28 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I found out about this collection purely by accident....and what good luck for me!!!!

I am an avid 80S music listener, and I have quite a few 80s collections, but this one stands out on top of my list!

The first disc is a remix project, and is flawless!...disc two and three are the full length versions in a remastered format...beautiful sound, and the accompanying booklet has the picture of the 12" single sleeve artwork. I highly recommend getting this collection!

(footnote...since this review, there are 3 more in this 80S series)

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff 14 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
Among the recent numerous compilations on 80s', this one, unexpectedly chosen and mixed by Blank & Jones, is really a sweet surprise. Good choice of songs, all remastered with mixed and unmixed versions, give you a good sonic experience to re-savour these vintage/gems. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars So80s series has a lot of promise--but needs to dig deeper for rarities 4 Nov 2010
By Daniel W. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This pricey series has its positives and negatives for those hardcore collectors looking to replace old vinyl 12" singles with CD quality. For starters, there's the annoying first disc, which is simply a continuous mix of tracks from the second 2 CDs. Personally, at this price, I would prefer three CDs of full-length, unmixed 80s rarities. The bright side is that they seem to use only original masters here, so while many of these 12" mixes have appeared on other compilations already, some were previously just vinyl transfers. Still, there are many repeats here of tracks already mastered from original sources on other CDs, so you're really just picking this up for particular tracks that haven't been on CD before, which is, of course, totally worth it, but still a hit to your wallet for just a handful of unique tracks.

Then we have odd choices like the horrible "coliseum mix" of When in Rome's "The Promise", the excessive 10 minute version of "Dancing With Tears in my Eyes," when the amazing U.S. club mix is the one that really needs to find its way to CD, what amounts to nothing more than the album versions of two Kim Wilde tracks connected together, the virtually instrumental mix of Talk Talk's "It's My Life", and the messy intro on the dance mix of Don't You Want Me with the last note of the previous track from the Human League's "Love and Dancing" album still audible and the song also pitched at the faster tempo instead of the original speed of the 12" single.

While there are plenty of overused tracks from kajagoogoo, duran duran, heaven 17, spandau ballet, and the flirts, the disc also features a couple of 12" mixes that rarely make it to CD by Bryan Ferry, Robbie Nevil, Propaganda, Dusty Springfield (produced by the Pet Shop Boys), Michael Cretu, The Men, and Scritti Politti, so this could indeed be a treasure trove depending on how long you've been in the collecting game and just what tracks you're looking for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice package 23 May 2011
By Gregory L. Soto - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nicely mixed. I am not familiar with Blank and Jones, so I was nervous about paying so much for a mix cd from DJs I have not heard. However, I enjoyed the mix cd of the package very much. The mixes are well done. The cd with the full versions is nice as well, with a lot of rarities and classics. I will definitely order the others in the series.
5.0 out of 5 stars Love the mixed cd 16 July 2012
By Glenn R. Chappell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent cd. Mixed very well by Blank & jones. Played it at my pool party and everyone loved it. Having the songs unmixed as well, makes this collection very nice. I also like the booklet with the orginal 12 inch covers. I plan on buying the other volumes as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars So not an Extended Mix! 3 April 2011
By Jimi Miele - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I just don't understand how people in the music business put a selection on a collection and refer to it as an"EXTENDED MIX/VERSION"-Talk Talk,It's MY Life.This is the 2nd collection I have purchased with the promise of getting the longer mix of that song,another disappointment.Sorry guys,you shot a blank here! Did you ever hear the term"dub mix/version,well thats what you have here,not the extended version.Sadly some of these collections do just that,wish I was able to listen to it before I bought it. Don't get me wrong some versions on this collection are correct,but more than 1 are not,quality of recordings is not so great either,and I'll be weary of any further collections from these people.
