Review

Pure... 80s Dance Party combines decent, recognizable material from Whitney Houston, Wham!, Rick Astley, and Adam & the Ants, along with lesser heard tracks by Four Tops ("Loco in Acapulco"), the Pasadenas ("Riding on a Train"), and Bros ("When Will I Be Famous?"). While the packaging is chintzy, the sound quality is decent on this budget-line release from Sony Music. ~ Al Campbell
