Thanks, i do like me music!! Great selection here gonna have to add to my collection.

Some great tunes in there, (Einstein a go go!) Great for the collection, thanks.

Banned

great thanks

Don't forget Quidco.

Nice collection, but not very 'alternative'. It's Top 40 pop!

some decent stuff on there

used my £2.50 coupon from the birthday deal so £1.45!

Voted hot as it's got Vicious Pink on there. I love that track.

just ordered, seem like a good deal.

Sold out!!:x

Shame I missed out on this, most 80s CD collections all have the same old songs 'Don't You Want Me Baby' etc etc, but this collection contains a lot of tracks not normally included, and will offer those that don't remember this decade, a better overview of it's music, not just the mainstream TOTP stuff, so probably still worth buying elsewhere at a slightly higher price, if Zavvi have sold out

Shame i missed it
although tend to find some great compalation on amazon marketplace for pennies

I missed it too! Shame, its a good compilation.:thinking:

a good collection, I thought after the titel that the tracks were going to be 'mixed' together like a kinda megamix but alas they stand pround in their own right.

My order has just been cancelled, has anyone received a copy?

My local HMV store were selling this for £3 in their sale,when i was in there a couple of days ago....

anyone get this? I ordered it and the order got cancelled by Zavvi claiming they couldn't source it.
