Sadly this new 2013 digipak CD release is misleading.
The album itself is iconic and one of the best ever made in electronic disco.
While it may be remastered, it is from a VINYL SOURCE, NOT the original master tapes.
Just like the earlier release on the same label, and they should be ashamed of themselves.
Surely with the current buzz and renewed interest in Giorgio Moroder's career, you would think Repertoire Records would have learnt from their previous mistakes and actually bothered to source the original masters.

This 2nd hits edition is pointless. Why bother when the far superior "The Hits + Collection 86-09" 2 CD set was released, with so many unreleased songs and mixes.
This is just a cheap and rubbish attempt to cash in on the hard work of the first and only compilation that matters. As for the DVD... embarrassing. Cherry Pop are usually fantastic, and of course are allowed to make mistakes. No bigger than this.
This release is totally irrelevant.
