5.0 out of 5 stars 123 80s hits... or should it be 122 80s hits and 1 90s hit?, 18 May 2010
This review is from: Original Hits - Eighties (Audio CD)
This album represents excellent value for money, Amongst the gems featured on this compilation are Gary Moore and Phil Lynott's 'Out In The Fields', David Grant and Jaki Graham's cover of 'Could It Be I'm Falling In Love', the Boystown Gang's version of 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You' and Dave Stewart and Colin Bluntstone's cover of 'What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted. There is not a duff track on the album.

However, EMI appear to have slipped up in their research as one of the tracks featured, Belinda Carlisle's 'Live Your Life Be Free' was a hit in September 1991 - which makes the album title just a little misleading! The same problem has affected '80s Pop - 120 Original Hits' where here the rogue track is Boy George's 'The Crying Game' which charted in September 1992.

All in all, though, a very good album and I look forward to seeing what other gems EMI can unearth from the archives.

So the reviewer is what you would consider an "anorak", is that right, A.ogden? And why did you feel it necessary to point that out? It is actually quite useful to know that an album calling itself an "eighties" album contains non-eighties tracks; I have noticed a similar issue with other decade-specific compilations I've bought in the past (60s songs on a 70s album, and 70s songs on an 80s album), so I suppose I'm an "anorak" too, but never mind.
