Album Notes
Celebrating the era when creating your own compilations meant anxiously waiting for your favorite song to play on the radio, then haphazardly recording it onto a prehistoric tape deck instead of the more modern and simpler mouse-clicking method of digital downloads, 80s Mixtape is a three-CD, 66-track trip down memory lane for any music obsessive who grew up in the decade that spawned new wave, post-punk, and electro-pop. A more alternative antidote to the plethora of Stock, Aitken & Waterman-heavy pure pop retrospectives on the market, this 2011 Rhino collection largely focuses on the kind of artists who were more likely to grace the covers of the NME and Melody Maker than Smash Hits and Just 17. Although the majority of artists included will be familiar to most listeners, the selection of songs choices might not necessarily be the most instantly recallable. There are still massive hits which remain airplay staples to this day, from the likes of Simply Red ("Money's Too Tight to Mention"), the Pretenders ("Don't Get Me Wrong"), and Prince ("Kiss"), alongside cult classics from Joy Division ("Love Will Tear Us Apart"), the Smiths ("How Soon Is Now?"), and Orange Juice ("Rip It Up"). But elsewhere, the compilers have cleverly thought outside the box and cherry-picked some of the best lesser-known and lesser-appreciated tracks from established artists. So instead of Aztec Camera's Top Three smash "Somewhere In My Heart," there's their 1982 non-charting single "Pillar to Post"; instead of the Communards' chart-topper, "Don't Leave Me This Way," there's their previous minor hit "Disenchanted," and instead of Swiss duo Yello's iconic "The Race," there's the little-known 1985 release "Oh Yeah." Elsewhere, there are less predictable inclusions from Everything But the Girl ("Each and Everyone"), the Cure ("Why Can't I Be You"), and Scritti Politti ("Asylums in Jerusalem"), alongside several one hit-wonders (the Colour Field, the Dream Academy, Flash and the Pan), and a few acts who never crossed over to the mainstream, such as Monochrome Set and the Higsons. With artists as diverse as the Jesus and Mary Chain, Chris Rea, and Strawberry Switchblade, 80s Mixtape sets itself apart from similar releases by ignoring the obvious and allowing '80s indie kids to rediscover an eclectic treasure trove of forgotten gems, making it one of the most essential and original retro compilations of the year. ~ Jon O'Brien
