This review is from: 80's Mixtape (Audio CD)This brilliant album takes me back in all the right ways to the mix tape era, when you'd swap tapes with your mates, taking hours crafting your own compilations - not of the Top 40 dross, but the best album tracks, the lesser heard second single of a favourite band, or some new track form a new group you were lucky enough to hear first down the local record store. The tunes here are spot on, and not your obvious choices.
Love the mix of styles from The Smiths to the Waterboys via Japan and Talk Talk. What a band Talk Talk were! Whether you want to wallow in nostalgia or discover for the first time some of the greatest music of the 80s, I'd really recommend this - even if Jona Lewie should never be on there...
