5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Eurodisco lovers April 24, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This two disc compilation features many of Arabesque's hit singles from 1977 to 1983 such as "Hello Mr. Monkey", "Friday Night", "Rock Me After Midnight", "Once In A Blue Moon", "Why No Reply", "Peppermint Jack", "Fly High Butterfly", among others. I enjoy the songs very much which consists of a mix of mainly Eurodisco songs with Pop songs. Recommended!

Format:Audio CD
Yes, Arabesque's stuff is utterly addictive...a great, fun, bewildering mix of EXTREMELY catchy Eurodisco, bubblegum and powerpop in funny German accents and sweet girlgroup harmony. This 2CD "hits" collection is a nice, affordable primer, but beware, you may want all 9 studio albums (1978-1984), live album ("Fancy Concert") and "radio album" ("Radio Arabesque") after listening to this thing...see, I am a huge Sandra fan, been so since 1988, and later on, I learned she was in this girlgroup Arabesque and heard about the 1984 single "Ecstacy", and it was great, but being she's been successful solo and did not hear a word of this group, I thought they were a short-lived platform before going solo. Then I came across "IV", their 4th album released in 1980, it was expensive but got a good deal, didn't expect much...heard "Make Love Whenever You Can" and my jaw hit the floor...like kids in 1964 hearing the Beatles for the first time on the Ed Sullivan Show...like "HOLY F**** S***!!!" Is this one of THE greatest sounds ever or what?? And why was this NOT released in the US and why don't more people know about Sandra's prior group??? Why was I kept in the dark??" Anyhoo, "IV" is still a record near & dear to my heart in its perfection and goofy heart...well, I then came across a 5CD Japanese boxset, which gave me a clue as to how big the Arabesque catalogue is...the biggest surprise is how every song, EVERY SONG, is a delightful pop confection...but it wasn't EVERY song in the catalogue...there were 15 songs missing and I had to have them...so I got the five Russian 2-albums-on-1-disc "official" bootlegs for a good price...like I said, every song is great...I have no idea why Sandra doesn't think much of these records except as "good training"...
