Great selection of lesser known tracks from the outer edges of the mainstream 80s music (a lot from my record collection). Brought back a few memories for me.

A real mix, some good , some great some truly forgettable . A true 80s mix as let's not forget every decade has some tat. Enjoyable listen at great price would recommend as some gems in there.

Spandau Ballet "Through The Barricades" is Alternative? Scandal? The Blow Monkeys (yes, they certainly did 'blow')? Really disappointed that each subsequent release of an "alternative" compilation by the major labels seems to contain the same tracks as the previous one by the same performers. Disco Not Disco is a far better option and the type of compilation that is exciting and innovative.

... in that this compilation does work to remind us of how awful much of the music of the 80's, that most benighted of decades, really was.

Distance hasn't lent enchantment to tracks like "John Wayne is Big Leggy" and "Something's jumping in your shirt"; they were utter tosh then, and they're utter tosh now.

Sure, there's a few great tracks such as "Brassneck", "I Wanna Be Adored" and "Beasley Street", but they're only here by mistake.
