3.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive But Still Incomplete
To the casual buyer this may seem like a treat, but die hards would agree that Paul Hardcastle's 80s output would require at least 3cds to be comprehensive. The bulk of this compilation has appeared before , but there's still some stuff out there in the vaults. The much loved and hard to find "Sax mix" of Rainforest , the rare Don't Waste My Time 7" (hard to find on cd)...

3.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive But Still Incomplete, 7 Feb 2013
By 
Michael 80 (San Francisco,USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Electrofied 80S: Essential (Audio CD)
To the casual buyer this may seem like a treat, but die hards would agree that Paul Hardcastle's 80s output would require at least 3cds to be comprehensive. The bulk of this compilation has appeared before , but there's still some stuff out there in the vaults. The much loved and hard to find "Sax mix" of Rainforest , the rare Don't Waste My Time 7" (hard to find on cd) and the 7" mix of Just For Money to name a few. Also missing are 40 years,Syndicate Theme and Dolores. And do we really need new updated versions of 19 and The Wizard ? I'm sorry but the originals are far better. Considering how many best ofs Mr. Hardcastle has out there ,this one should've been more thorough.
