Great songs from the incredible Warner Bros. Records vault put in the hands of the best and brightest studio talent in the world equals the spectacular remix disc, Re:Mix Project Vol. 1. Featuring 14 vintage tracks from such classic artists as Seals & Crofts, Rod Stewart, Devo and The Doobie Brothers, Re:Mix Project resurrects some of the best-loved pop songs of the '70s (plus 1980) and reimagines them as a new listening experience for music fans young and old.

"Some of my favourite artists and tracks have been given a "new" sound that does not destroy the image of the original.I bought this album for "Summer Breeze", but now that I have listened to it many times I am very happy with the whole album. Its great to hear Nicolette Larson again as well as George Benson."

"This remix collection is a real treat for fans of club culture and 70s radio hits, the best of both worlds. The big draw here seems to be the remix of "Summer Breeze" by Seals & Crofts, which appeared in a television commercial. The rest of the album is pretty solid, too, the standouts for me being "Dream Weaver" by Gary Wright and a surprisingly hot mix of Todd Rundgren's "Hello It's Me". Strangely enough, one of the least of the tracks is the mix of Tower of Power's "What Is Hip", which titled the collection.
Part of the success here is because all of the remix artists were working with the original vocals, with the one exception of Rod Stewart's "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy". Apparently the master tapes are either lost or unusable, so Stewart re-recorded the vocals specifically for this project. He also did a super job of recreating the tone and phrasing of his original vocals.
I only have one complaint, and that's the inclusion of Devo's "Whip It". It's an OK mix, but it's incongruous with the rest of the selections, which were mostly AM radio favorites in the 70s. While "Whip It" is also from the same decade, it's more closely associated with New Wave and not the 70s cheese represented here."
What Is Hip Is Pretty Hip!

"Well I really enjoyed listening to this CD especially the remix of Summer Breeze by Seals and Crofts. Listen To The Music by The Doobie Brothers is not to shabby either although they could have mixed in the catchy guitar riff a little more in the remix. The remix of Rod Stewart's Do Ya Think I'm Sexy is still sexy but I wasnt to thrilled about the remix of Whip It by Devo. I think the original is better. I enjoy listening to new mixes of popular songs as well as new versions of them by other artists. A good song is a good song, no matter who records it."
