It's worth it just for the 'Original' unmixed classics as well as the nostalgia for those that are of a certain age, so buy it.
However - the mix by the man Kurtis Mantronik - what a let down. There is an absolute clanger in there going from track 3 to 4 on CD2 that any DJ with 2 turntables and 2 slabs of vinyl would cringe at. But, with having a raft of digital 'tools' at just about anyone's disposal these days, this is unforgivable.
My theory is that the mix was not submitted like this but has had to be edited/shortened (by someone that has no clue about the art of the DJ mix) for it to fit the CD.
Some of the 'remixes' are also questionable.
More quality control by those that really know next time!
