Overview

Canada's Hi Bias label is clearly running out of prime material on the fifth volume of their Retro: Active series, which compiles extended and otherwise alternate versions of pop singles released throughout the '80s. While several tracks here are appearing on CD for the very first time -- a common trait throughout the series that makes the discs appealing to avid '80s collectors -- the standard is simply not that high. Some of the featured tracks include the extended mixes of Blancmange's "That's Love, That It Is," Aztec Camera's "Walk Out to Winter," and a-ha's "I've Been Losing You," as well as the "Berlin Mix" of the Psychedelic Furs' "Pretty in Pink." Ricky Gervais fans might be delighted and rather bemused by the inclusion of Seona Dancing's "More to Lose."
