"I love everything that Bobby Orlando had released from 1982 through 1987 (the end of "O" Records). In my opinion the Flirts were at the top of their game from 1982 up until 1986. The reason why I give Hot Productions version of the best of the Flirts only four stars is because the songs are not presented in their 12 Inch Disco format. Only a few songs on here are presented here in the 12 Inch version, and those songs are "You & Me" (1985) and "New Toy" (1985). All of the other songs are here; only they are presented in album version or extended version. Missing 12 Inch Disco cuts are : "Passion", "Calling All Boys", "Jukebox", "Danger", "Helpless", "All You Ever Think About Is Sex" and "Miss You". For anyone who seeks the 12 Inch Versions, seek Unidisc Records version titled "Greatest Hits" by The Flirts."
Classic HI-NRG at its best!

"The Flirts get 5 stars from me because of the melodical sound of the 80's. The Flirts packed the Disco's with jams like "Calling All Boys", "Passion", "Helpless", and many more to name....The Flirts can do no wrong, with BOBBY "O" producing their hits, BOBBY "O" is also responsible for groups like "The Flirts", "Waterfront", "Pet Shop Boys", and "Divine"! The Flirts music take me back when i first heard my first CHICAGO MIX from radio station WBMX from the early 1980's. This HI-NRG CD is a must have for your collection....if anyone wants to trade mixes from Chicago, NYC, or Detroit or just talk about this mysterious genre of music email"
It's Not All I Expected.....

"I'm not as happy about this CD as I wanted to be. Out of 12 songs, I only like four: "Passion", "Calling All Boys", "Jukebox (Don't....", and "New Toy" which were their biggest club hits. If you're a Flirts fan, then I'm sure the entire collection is perfection, but if you're like me and are looking for club music from the 80's, this may not work for you. I'm not sorry I bought it as I love the four songs mentioned above. I'm happy to have them blasting from my car, home and PC, but if you're looking for 12 great songs you know, you will be disappointed. If you can't find "Passion", "Calling All Boys", "Jukebox (Don't....", and "New Toy" on other collections (and you can as I already have), then get this CD, otherwise, only Flirts fans need to get this CD."
The Flirts Biggest Fan

"I think i have got to be the biggest fan of The Flirts. I have actually worn out cd's because i have played them constantly. I have contacted Guiness about setting a record for listening to the same song over and over but they don't do those kind of records. I am also trying to contact Bobby O or The Flirts, i would really like to meet them. I think i have listened to "You and Me" more than 50,000 times just this year alone. That is my all time favorite song, followed by "Miss You" "Crazy Guy" "Jukebox" "Danger" and "After Midnight" The Firts are the Greatest!!!!!!!!!"
