I have listened to most of the songs on this CD. I'm glad that they included extended remixes of certain titles. (Never really cared for Neutron Dance! I prefer the other song on beverly Hills Cop2 Soundtrack instead.) But from what another citic mentioned on this site, Goldmine should have been included. Overall, it's got some great classic songs and is well worth the risk of owning.

Good 80's pop dance music.
Extended remix collection
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This "Greatest Hits" CD is unlike any of the others that are out by the Pointer Sisters and there are many. This CD gathers all of their biggest hits for Planet/RCA (1978-1985 on this disc). There are only 13 tracks because 8 of the 13 are extended remixes. The remixed tracks are: "Jump (For My Love)" 6:24, "Neutron Dance" 5:33, "Dare Me" 6:18, "Automatic" 6:06, "I'm So Excited" 5:41, "I Need You" 5:50, "If You Wanna Get Back Your Lady" 6:07, "Freedom" 6:18, and "Baby Come And Get It" 7:15. Plus their pre-dance hits such as "Slow Hand" and "Fire" Note: "Freedom" and "I Need You" are more like mid-tempo ballads than dance mixes. The material presented here is overall great. The disc only clocks in to 71 minutes though. I wish that since there was room for one more track that RCA could've included the extended remix of "Goldmine" 6:20, from 1986. My guess for the reason behind only putting 13 tracks for only 71 minutes worth is because in the late 80s' CDs could only fit a total 74 minutes worth of music like some of the CD-Rs that are out. Also note: if you get the cassette you'll only get 10 of the 13 tracks."
Excellent selection. Terrible sound quality.

"I thought I had a good compilation when I purchased this, but the sound is just terrible, which makes this a forget-about-it compilation. I have heard very few CDs recorded as badly as this."
