Being an avid 80's fan, especially any 12" Single Mixes and Remixes, Pet Shop Boys to me were the best thing that I heard as I grew up through that decade. In the mid-to-late 90's, I admittedly went off the pop duo as my music tastes changed and I started to appreciate the great classics like Pink Floyd, Genesis, Queen and other soft-rock bands from the 70's and 80's. The duo's early 90's stuff was OK, but I felt that they were heavily going down the road of the techno / electronica genre, especially when it came to their 12" Mixes and Remixes, which I honestly can't stand. Yet when it comes to their 80's music, then I'm still hooked every time, even against other great classic 80's bands that I like, such as Depeche Mode, Ultravox, Duran Duran and Erasure to name but a few. Call it what you like, nostalgia, personal bias, whatever, but as far as I'm concerned that was when they were at their prime.

This is why a purchased this rare Remix CD Maxi Single of Pet Shop Boys' "West End Girls", although I admit that they are 90's Remixes. My reason for this is that to the best of my knowledge I now have all the Remixes of this classic song, from the original 1984 12" Mixes, through to the commercially popular 1986 Mixes (the Dance Mix, the Shep Pettibone Mastermixes, and the Limited Edition 10" Single Mix), which I have all on CD audio quality format.

Now this CD compilation of the Montreal Mixes created by the original producer of the 1984 Versions, Bobby Orlando, has been added to my collection. These Mixes are very House style themed, but they are worth a listen, and more importantly if you are a collector of Pet Shop Boys, or great 12" Single Mixes and Remixes in general from the 80's (OK... and the early 90's) that are hard to find on CD format, then this should be part of your collection.

ZYX re-released and recycled the PSB tunes available to them many times, but this one at least is worth getting. The Montreal mixes are decent, and the James Brown mix is particularly bizarre.
