"OMG! This collection is mega, it has almost ALL of the urban 80's Electro Funk hits that you love. This isn't some damn New Wave collection that you see on TV, this is the real ish! This is the stuff that kids used to breakdance and pop to in the inner cities of America. This is the music that everybody would just go crazy to in the rollerskating rinks and the house parties during the early 80s. It was just a magical time and it's encapsulated wonderfully in this collection. I've already reserved my copy. These songs are just bangin'...I don't have enough words to describe them because they're just to good for words. You have to appreciate electro-funk to know why I'm so happy about this collection. And the price just can't be beat. You cannot deny the impact that these songs had and how influential they are. Do you know how many times mainstream artists nowadays have sampled these songs and turned them into hits again?! -- Monifah's "Touch It" sampled "White Horse" by Laid Back, and you'll just be so infuriated that you didn't get this collection any sooner because these originals sound so much better than the remakes you hear on the radio. I mean, damn, I love these songs and I will always love them. Please do yourself a major favorite and purchase this. The price can't be beat. (More than 5 stars)."
