"This compilation covers a broad selection of mostly mid-80's hi-energy club tracks. Thankfully, they are all extended versions. The clunkers in this collection are Jackie Moore's "This Time Baby" and Jo-Lo's "Last Call" . Moore's track doesn't fit in with the rest of the selections here - it is 70's disco, plus it's already included on umteen "Disco" compilations. While "Last Call", orignally on Sylvester's homebase - the Megatone label, is energetic, Megatone has much superior tracks in it's catalog by Patrick Cowley, Modern Rocketry, and Sylvester himself.The Highlights here are the rarely found Deodato "SOS(Fire in the Sky)" and the 12" mix of "Jackie" by Blue Zone (which features a young Lisa Stansfield on vocals)."
Too bad this series was only two volumes....

"This excellent series never strays too far from giving you exactly what you want, and many of these mixes are hard to find on CD. I think this is the ONLY series that has ever had any Until December tracks, and this volume in particular features the 'european mix' of "Two of Hearts", which, while shorter than both the original 12" and the album version, is a great alternative mix to have for collectors. Track times:
1. high energy...evelyn thomas (7:51)
2. you spin me round (murder mix)...dead or alive (8:02)
3. venus (original 12")...bananarama (7:27)
4. two of hearts (european mix)...stacey q (6:05)
5. jackie...blue zone uk with lisa stansfield (7:05)
6. seclusion...shawn benson (7:33)
7. mercenary(bd calhoun mix)...until december (6:46)
8. this time baby...jackie moore (7:14)
9. SOS...deodato (6:42)
10. Last call...JoLo (4:13)"
