Absolute classic

Takes you back 20 years in an instant!


Anyone, who loves the 80's will love this album! And even if you don't like the good ol' eighties, then this will change your mind for sure! I got it from Amazon in a classic CD version (in fact in this particular track line-up, which is the UK edition, which includes "Chancer" and "CT's" 9mm Mix by Il Nitro, unlike the US one)... CT is a hit, no doubt..."Theresa" is also extremely mellow...Others are variable in the sense of style, but definitely not quality! However, the 9mm Mix could have been better...Sadly the CT - EP is not available on ITMS - there is a fabulous 12'' Extended by Francois Kevorkian on it, which is no worse than the original...But, anyway, well done ITMS, keep the Jan Hammer collection up....try getting those rare tracks on!
