"I'm not going to get into to much detail on trying to convince someone that this is a good compilation representing 1982 dance music. The reason why i'm writing this review is in regards to Patrick Cowley's "Megatron Man". Rhino Records for some dumb reason decided to add the 1987 remix of "Megatron Man" (which was an official Megatone Records release), insted of the original 1982 version. The original version of "Megatron Man" only came in two versions. The 12 Inch (9 mins) and the radio edit (3:59). I don't know if Unidisc Records (which owns the rights to all of Megatone Records catolog) gave Rhino the wrong copy or what. For those who wish to hear the original version in it's complete format, look for the CD "Megatron Man" which has all 3 versions on the CD."
Still not all long versions, but there are some:

"You get some club versions on here: glad to know you (6:45), Love Come Down (6:19), Megatron Man (7:31), Cheri (6:36), Right on Target (6:20), and So Fine (5:34). The rest are single versions.This series should have gone for the gusto and put all extended versions, considering it's celebrating dance music."

"Billboard's Top Dance Hits of 1982 is a solid collection. The album is worth buying for the superb "Let It Whip" by The Dazz Band, truly one of the best R&B songs of the 80's. Give the album credit by focusing on true dance hits like Chas Jankel's "Glad To Know You" and D Train's "You're The One For Me"."
