Future Retro

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Arranged by Craig DeGraff, who claims, hopefully with tongue placed somewhat injuriously in cheek, "Not since the KLF has there been such a rock & roll swindle," Future Retro is a compilation from Rhino that sets up WEA-distributed hits of the early '80s most of them new wave with remixers.
