5.0 out of 5 stars A good mix of remixes
The remixes on here, although pretty standard songs, were very well done. I enjoyed the trip down memory lane but al liked the fact that these were remixes done from what I thought were a very modern slant.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unnecessary
A reasonable collection of tracks at a decent price for sure. However beware, these aren't original remixes (ie. the 80s 12" versions themselves), they are modern remixes of the original tracks. If that sounds confusing then it is, and I'm guessing the publishers are happy with that since it will effectively mislead some people. Also, given the number of similar albums...

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, 7 Feb 2009

This is what it says on the box, a collection of popular 80's tracks in the form that those of us old enough to remember the 80's still call "12 inch" versions. Quite predictable content but surely that's what we want. I'm off down memory lane to get my hair gel and shoulder pads.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty original, 19 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Original 80s Remix Box Set (Audio CD)
With a plethora of 1980s pop compilations on the market, any new collection really needs to have some originality in terms of tracks selected. With rarer hits such as Heaven 17's 'Play to Win' and 'We Came to Dance' by Ultravox replacing better know songs such as 'Temptation' and 'Vienna' by the same artists, this is an opportunity to collect those rarer 12" tracks from one's youth. Similarly, 'Souvenir' by OMD and 'Let's Go All the Way' by Sly Fox are interesting choices, although there are plenty of more populist tracks such as Talk Talk's 'It's My Life' and 'Keep on Movin' by Soul II Soul.
With three discs and over forty tracks, this does represent good value for money, and should keep most thirty and forty-somethings happy for hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 80's are always back, 16 May 2010

If you grew up listerning to the New Romantic era, then you will not be disappointed with this box set. It contains all the best remixes and more.Classics heard years ago and also stuff that is new played on radio anymore due to it's apparent daginess.
No way, just buy it and dance away, even if it is only in your living room. Get out those headbands and Lycra. Go for it.
