5.0 out of 5 stars Great 80s Album - in a great expanded package. Buy It!, 11 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Echo everything said on the other reviews, great audio quality across the board and an exhaustive list of B sides and Remixes. The only disappointment is that I didn't catch this album first time round!
Well done to cherry pop for putting together a first rate package. (Maybe we should show this excellent example of an expanded version to the Tabu label who have done a bloody awful packaging job with their releases - but that's a different Story!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Compilation Spoilt by a few poor Vinyl Rips, 11 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 12" 80s Club Classics (Audio CD)
I purchased this CD with high hopes, but alas it wasn't the top notch audio quality I was hoping for. For the most part the songs sound crystal clear and are great quality, but some - namely "I Feel For You", "All and All", "My Magic Man" and "Love Cant Turn Around" are vinyl rips and not good ones at that. If in doubt listen to track two Disc 1 on the preview tracks and this confirms that the Chaka Khan track sounds distinctly "gritty" and distorted and isn't a bad disc. (Go seek out a Ben Liebrand Grand 12 inches disc if you want this one in pristine quality.)

It just smacks of laziness when compilations are put out with Vinyl rips when a clean digital version exist - certainly this is true for the Chaka Khan and Darryl Pandy tracks. So on the whole if Vinyl Rips annoy the hell out of you but you don't care about the tracks mentioned above then please go ahead and buy. If you are buying this CD because of the inclusion of the tracks above - be prepared to be disappointed. Personally I only bought the CD for the last track - S'Express Spatial Expansion Mix which I'm glad to say is a good transfer, so for that I gave it three stars.
