Just a comment: The Freeez track is actually not the 1983 "I.O.U. (Megamix)" by Jellybean & John Robie. Rather, it is the "I.O.U. (Ultimate Club) (Vocal Mix)" remixed by The Latin Rascals, et al. in 1986. This 1986 remix first appeared on the US release I.O.U., and it was re-released in a further edited form in Europe in 1987 on I.O.U. (The Ultimate Mixes '87). It is this later edit that appears on this compilation. This probably applies to all editions.
