    At least 8 of the tracks on my number matching copy of this disc are sped up making the times and tempos are wrong. I compared to other CD compilations and vinyl copies of the songs. Known to be wrong are Freedom, Showdown, It's Nasty, The Message, Scorpio, Message II (Survival), New York, New York and White Lines. Birthday Party seems to be correct and I did not check Step Off Megamix or Beat Street.
