"This one will be short and sweet: A great compilation of hard-to-find dance classics that will get any party moving.
But to comment on reviewers who received CD-Rs: Yes, unfortunately this company (HOT Productions) started to manufacture cd-rs of all their product when they were in litigation and about to go out of business. I got duped, too, on some of their issues, but got my money back from the stores who sold them. The good news is even the cd-rs are mastered from the original tapes, so the sound quality is consistent with the regular glass master factory-pressed cds.
And just to let everyone know, real CDs DO EXIST of these releases and the others, but it will be a crap-shoot to find them, as they were only done at the beginning of the pressings before the company started having financial trouble. (I happen to have many of them, including this compilation). You can tell if you get an original, because they are COLOR SILK-SCREENED, NOT plain silver cds with black printing. (those are the cd-rs) Your best bet would be to avoid any that are "sealed" and buy a used one only. That way you will know what you are getting beforehand.
Hope this helps!"

"While it's very nice to have long-lost 80s disco/dance/electro tracks by TINA B., CHERI, PHYLLIS NELSON, WEEKS & CO and more on CD format, this collection is tained by the fact that when I finally received it and opened it...I discovered to my horror and disappointment this is a CD-R rather than an authentic SILVER CD!! Where does the label get off charging people full retail price for a CD-R?! C'mon, do the fans & collectors a favor and re-master this and put it out on a REAL CD!! Very misleading; but I'll still keep my copy, as these tracks are quite hard to find and strictly OOP!"
ATTENTION , not CD, a CD-R
