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.
