There is nothing disappointing about this compilation. Sure, an artist may have been left out or tracks overlooked. However what is on the compilation is pure listening pleasure.

Another slightly confused post-punk/dance compilation from Soul Jazz: if you're supposed to be highlighting NY's early eighties avant-garde club culture, why haven't you included August Darnell's excellent remix of "Contort Yourself" rather than the (admittedly also great) rockier Contortions version? And it may be an obvious tune to drop, but Dinosaur L's "Go Bang" is infinitely preferable to the cheesy "Clean On Your Bean" included here (and if you had to include a lesser known Arthur Russell tune on the album, why not "Wax The Van"?). Disappointing.
