As a child of the 70s my musical tastes were forming during the 80s when I was at school. I bought a large number of singles (7 and 12") back then but given limited resources there was no way I could get everything I wanted. Collections like this, and the superb 12"/80s series, then are a gift.

I was surprised to see this come in at a cheaper price point than other collections and worried that Sony might have promised more than they could deliver but deliver they have. As always there are favourites and ones you want to skip but generally this is a decent varied collection with each discs running order loosely themed.

Discs 1 and 2 are very poppy (King's Love & Pride and James Brown's Living In America are highlights), disc 3 is dance (the excellent Beat Dis by Bomb The Bass sits alongside Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam's I Wonder If I Take You Home) and disc 4 (massive kudos for including the criminally underrated Spear of Destiny's Liberator) is a little less mainstream.

Sound quality is good. Unlike some collection there don't appear to be any vinyl rips which was a pleasant surprise. This is a pretty solid collection. Don't let the generic cover put you off: it's part of Sony's new range of 4-disc collections presumably designed to introduce you to an unfamiliar genre. It's a good idea but the packaging gives you scant information should you want to delve deeper... Recommended and a snip at the price.

The actual mixes, for those, like me, who care are:

These are the original 12" Mixes of these songs from the 80s except for the last track 'She Bangs the Drums (Elephant Remix) by the Stone Roses. This was released in 2005. As much as I like the remix, it does not fit in with the rest of the album sound. I know the album is called Pure 80s Remixes and does not claim to be the original 12" mixes, but as I am reviewing the album, I wanted to clarify this for other people who may be thinking about buying it.

They are also full length versions - no 7" mixes have accidently made their way on to the compilation.

So it has its fair share of rubbish - Rick Astley, Bros, Weather Girls etc, but it also has many other 12" mixes you would normally get on an 80s 12" compilation so it's refreshing to get some other tracks. I gave it a good rating simply because it's such good value - £4.99 for all these tracks. Even if there are only 8 - 10 tracks you like, it's still good value for money. Quality is excellent too. And I have to say, I didn't like Whitney Houston or Billy Ocean but the 12" mixes of these are really pretty good! The Terence Trent D'Arby mix is also excellent. You can't really go wrong at the price.

I love the 80's sounds and when I bought records...yes records...yes vinyls in that era I always got 12" versions as I felt one got ones monies worth.
This is no exeption! Absolutely love it. Yes there are one or two 'album fillers' but if you are into the 80's sound and love 'that extra beat' this is for you.
Strongly reccommend at this very modest price.

As with all compilations of this type there are some hidden gems you overlooked back in the day and some diamonds that turned out all these years later to be coal.

Ordered this by mistake really. Looked at the songs on it and thought yeah, some good tracks there. It was only when it arrived that I realised it was a remix tape. Songs tend to drag and I'm not a fan of the remix versions.

The quality of this recording is very poor with constant dropouts - it would have been better on a TDK D90 - do Amazon not check these things before adding them to the library
