The reason why this record is in so many lists is: Music Is The Key (Basement Key)
This mix captures the essence of the birth of House music in 1985 when House was just about to become a genre.

The pressing with black printing on white label (DJ-888) has a defect on the A side track 2 (Basement Key Mix). The song starts at over 120 bpm and near the end drops down to 112 bpm, the blue printing label copy (D-248) doesn't do this.
