The Steve Anderson (of Brothers in Rhythm fame) megamix uses the following identifiable tracks: (bits used throughout) Sinnamon - I Want You Now, Master C+J - One Day We'll All Be Free, Coldcut with Lisa Stansfield - People Hold On, Loleatta Holloway - Love Sensation, Kym Mazelle & Dr. Robert Howard - Wait!, ABC - One Better World, Kym Mazelle - Useless, Electribe 101 featuring Billie Ray Martin - Tell Me When The Fever Ended, Adeva - Respect, Chanell - One Man, Adeva - Warning and Alisha Warren - Touch Me. Anderson contributes a lot of extra keyboards which bind the songs together beautifully. A small bit of a Christmas melody shows at the end of the mix, fitting enough, as this is supposed to be an entire year of Deep House music in retrospective.

The Dakenye remix of Doug Lazy's third and final US Dance #1 (all in 1989) is almost as good as hip-house ever got. The unofficial title of "Best Hip-House EVER" goes to the Jungle Brothers, who managed to one-up Tyree Cooper, Kool Rock Steady and everyone in the genre specifically by not taking the style seriously and just having fun on "I'll House You". Anderson also contributed keyboards to the Doug Lazy remix.

The Ben Liebrand remix of Chas Jankel's club smash of almost a decade before is guilty of trying far too hard to sound current, and thus sounds forced and unnatural. The way the hip-hop and house elements are tacked on is reminiscent of the 1986 Frankie Knuckles remix of Kasso's (Claudio Simonetti) Italo classic "One More Round", which just didn't work well. Liebrand doesn't tack synth-marimba on at least, but still...A definite miss.

The rock megamix features too much bad hair and arena metal for me to sit through, so no track listing. There WAS good metal available that year, but most that was included in this mix was chart hits, none of which has aged tolerably.

These old DMC samplers are at times fascinating artifacts of (mostly) club music. Grab one if you see it.
