If you are looking at this CD, thinking to yourself, "cool, I love acoustic/unplugged music"... THINK AGAIN.

Although the CD is called "Acoustic 80's", do NOT expect any of the songs to be acoustic performances! All of the songs are studio versions.

While it is a good CD of 80's tunes... it should NOT be called "Acoustic 80's"!

Well, personally, I bought this disk for one reason, and it's the only reason I gave it 4 stars. The SUPER RARE extended version of Fascination by the Human League on CD. Since the "fascination" EP has never made its way to disc, I've had to buy numerous compilations to get most of the songs from that vinyl EP on CD, and I can finally cross this one off my list. Other than that, unless you don't have many 12" collection compilations, you'll probably have most of the stuff on here. It should be noted that "To Cut a Long Story Short" sort of, well, cuts the 12" version short. It's not the full 6 and a half-minute mix. Also, the 12" of "19" is on here, but ironically, the 12" version is shorter than the album version. And why call this disc the ORIGINAL 80s Remix Album when we have 90s house remixes of Heaven 17, Blondie, Simple Minds, and Kim Wilde? They don't belong on here. I wish they would have omitted them and scrounged up some more real 80s 12" versions. Track times:

1. union of the snake (5:56)
2. fascist groove thang (5:50)
3. to cut a long story short (5:47)
4. sometimes (5:18)
5. all stood still (5:07)
6. I'll tumble 4 ya (4:39)
7. fascination (5:00)
8. hyperactive (5:08)
9. 19 (5:14)
10. atomic (6:52)
11. waterfront (6:12)
12. and she was (4:58)
13. kids in America (4:04)
14. flesh for fantasy (7:08)

The original extended version of 'Fascination' is truly awesome, and the entries from Thomas Dolby, Talking Heads, Spandau, Ultravox and Culture Club are more than worthy. The Duran Duran mix, while good, has been available on disc for many years in many places. Billy Idol's 'Flesh For Fantasy' is even more widely accessible. The 1993 mix of a great Heaven 17 song is simply awful. Blondie's 'Atomic' from 1994 raises the question-- why didn't the people behind this disc put in a little more effort? The remix edit of the wonderful Simple Minds track 'Waterfront' is nothing short of an insult. The 2001 version of 'Kids In America' has been included as an exhibit of the failure of imagination that plagues today's remixers (it couldn't be there for reasons of quality because it has none). Why not dig deeper and get out some of the good stuff released AT THE TIME? It wouldn't have been too much of a chore, and it would've lived up to the title of the disc.

ORIGINAL 80's remix Album- I purchesed this CD because of the used price.
some of the remixes were never big hits at least in New York. I.E. track (Heaven 17)not a listener at a party(drink song, leave the dance floor). Spandau Ballet never heard it, but I love Spandau Ballet; track 6 (Boy George)nice remix from 12"; track 7 (human league) shorter than another 12" version BUT A GREAT MIX; track 9 (Paul Hardcastle) excellent 12" mix love it on CD; track 13 (Kim Wilde)Great Mix "never heard the mix"
WORTH THE PRICE $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
