I'm a little confused. Are the tracks that say Original 12" remixed as well? A Street Sounds distributor found a couple cases and before I buy I want to know if the lp is worth it. x

Dirty Harry once said; "...opinions are like a$$holes, everyone has one".I think some can be rather harsh when reviewing an release especially when it relates to classic re-released material. I personally don't care if you've got all the original 12's, that has no relevence to the release at all! This compilation will be several things to many people, some good some bad. We also need to remember that this will have appeal to the youth of today, it's not just about satisfying the demands of those who were there back in the early 80's.Packaging is great and remastered sound quality is pretty good considering there is so much poor quality re-mastered releases flooding the market today. If you are a completist then it's a no-brainer you will want this. Others will just have to choose whether they want to risk buying it based upon others negative opinions or whether they just do as I do,...blast the CD from my car remembering the friction burns on my back, elbows and knees from all that other type of spinning on vinyl lol

If you do still like Electro, the remastering is spot on and to me it's worth having these tracks again for this fact alone. Also, first class artwork that represents a sense of continuity with the rest of the series without leaning towards overblown contemporary flashy graphics. Forget the mix which is unfortunately lifeless in my opinion.

What else can I say... That an anticipated LP has been a let down and as further let insult to injury by compiling an LP which most of us have the original 12's in our collection. All I can say is that Morgan Khan is looking for his pension fund by getting guiliable fools to buy it. If you have any sense, why waste your money on something that was good back in the day. After all, if you're still collecting Electro then you've not grown up at all.Then you should go back to secondary school and goto the school disco where you can try your moves on the lino. Electro was great, but there was a lot of obscure shit out there too which is still being bought....

Bring back herbie thats the 'crucial' bit thats missing...

I read a post by some guy on the internet who was talking about he used to work at some shlub job like kinko's or something and he used to talk to one of his co workers who mentioned one day that he used to be a DJ. His name was Herbie Laidley. He didn't realize until years later that he was the legendary Herbie Mastermind.

Well well what can I say about this release. Back in tha day Street Sounds held a special place in my life, it brought me music from the cutting edge of Electro!! That was then and this is now. The track listing was essentially very safe. The mixing was well below average and could of been done by any bedroom DJ to a better standard. It was as if Kurtis Mantronik is out to bring Morgan Khsn down. How this ever came to being pressed is beyond me. So come on all you fly muthas take ogf the rose tinted glasses and out your ear to the windoe as you'll hear M.K. laffin at ya as your money fills his account!!! I cant mix. I could have done better bearing in mind how long the production took!!! TOTALLY PISS POOR!!!

As a big fan of Streetsounds back in the day I was eagerly looking forward to this release. Then came the massive delay and the release of the tracklist. There's nothing on this that wasnt released on the other Electro's, so a little disappointing. I can't say the remixes were of interest either, why ruin a classic. So the last hope for me was the mix. I can only assume Mantronik is that comfortable doing whatever he's up to these days not to care about this release. Its terrible. It has obvious mistakes and the use of digital manipulation is way over the top. Very disappointing.

Well I finally got round to dropping my vinyl copy last night and omg what a disappointment!! The original version's of the tracks that feature are great for being remastered etc but the remixes are that bad! My favorite Egyptian Lover tune has been ruined! I just took the needle of the record after a minute, awful remix! Then the Divine Sounds remix is just as bad what a complete hash of a job!, the dmx will rock was a slight improvement but no it's ruined also and finally surgery was the best of all of them but why why why even bother messing with these tracks as all of those remixes have been done by the same person it is obvious they love there serato which all of us vinyl junkies hate!! I wonder if the artists actually heard the remixes of their tracks as surely they would not have allowed these remixes to go ahead as the tracks have been hashed or was the licence money more important to them?? I know Morgan wanted to make this release a unique purchase to give us electro heads something to buy but I would of preferred the original cuts of the tracks instead of classics being tampered with by a serato head! This is a missed opportunity to grow this brand in my opinion. If your after a good electro example of how to do edits on classics just check out Greg Wilson's Electro Edits release for record store day 2013, Greg puts the above to shame by doing a fine job with 4 classic tracks.

when i first heard it i had to double take and recheck who mixed it as i thought it was a double mix offr between edward scissorhands and stevie wonder as it is fucking horrendous and im glad i dint pay for it as i would have wasted hard earned cash, i have all the trax on 12" anyway but i feel sorry for the fools who did pay for it as once again street scams has ripped loyal old skool fans off with their latest scam. i just hope in future these people take off their rose tinted goggles and see morgan for what he really is a khan artist. artwork 0/10 already been flogged to death and music etc esp the mix 0/10
Whatever
I think some of the reviews below are a bit mean spirited. Especially the comments on the choices of tracks, which (even though hardly rare) are still solid start to end... The guy with the longest review is well known for having a long-running spat with Street Sounds so make what you will of his whiny review....
FEISKO
Everyone is entitled to their own opinions Ed Roberts and if something is made available for sale then it is open for public review.Far as the so called spat goes until you know all the facts mind your own eh.

Artwork and quality packaging spot on, lovely 10/10Track selection, while are well known popular tracks, is rather safe. 6/10Mix is disappointing. 2/10
Dogrel
Track selection of the compilation is very weak with tunes that have been hammered to death it lacks research and knowledge of a genre that has been around for decades now,and there are many records out there that never made it to the original 'Electro' series back in the day which would of been more welcoming (minus the house deejay style re-edits)..... 'MCI-Commandments' and 'Diamond 2 Crew-Prophecy (Breaker's Theme)' being just two examples of those.Buy for the sleeve art to use as a picture in your living room and you won't be disappointed but that's it. Any real beat junkie in the know will already have all these tunes on original 12" vinyl in pristine condition even some as doubles purchased many moons ago. So unless you need new frisbees for your dog then save your cash as there is nothing 'Ground Breaking' ,'Essential' or even 'Crucial' on offer here. Sleeve Art = 4.5/5 -- Vinyl = 0.3/5
Mpapa
I hope you didn't gave them to your (or a friends) dog, because now you'll get your cash back, ..twice!

Well after much unnecessary hype, release date shifting and being delayed in flash floods which even the worlds media were unaware of 'Crucial Electro 4' finally makes an appearance.Fans of the original series will love the artwork which is of a familiar design to the original 'Crucial Electro' releases,but that is where the good points end i was always a bit concerned that someone who now mixes and produces 'House' music ie: 'Kurtis Mantronik' would be with an album of old school electro tracks all these years later.The end result the 'Mantronik' mix itself on Disc 2 is very lame from a guy who has many years of studio experience and it is beyond belief how it was ever passed before the final master especially on a release which has been advertised as a 'ground-breaking album',and an 'essential buy for any Street Sounds and Electro fan'. Examples of this sloppy workmanship can be heard during the mix from 'Marley Marl Scratch' into 'Knights Of The Turntables' when 'MC Shan' is cut off mid rhyme.Later on 'Monster Beat' seems to go into pitch overdrive towards the end of the track with a less than subtle speed up.Other areas where the mix fails are in the levels of each track,also a lot of the effects used especially on the re-edits (which have been done by a Street Sounds record distributor using various names) are of a style used by 'House' club deejays on quite a few ocassions i thought i'd been in a nightmare involving a 'Scouse House' club executed by someone that's been let loose with a copy of 'Ableton' and a couple of stutter type 'VST Plug Inns',most notable during 'Divine Sounds' - 'What People Do For Money' which has been totally ruined with 'House Deejay' style effects. Still i guess that's to be expected with poor name alias research, when you name yourself after 'El Bruto' who is a gabber and happy hardcore producer.http://www.discogs.com/artist/El+BrutoTrack selection (album compilation) is also very weak with tunes that have been hammered to death it lacks research and knowledge of a genre that has been around for decades now,and there are many records out there that never made it to the original 'Electro' series back in the day which would of been more welcoming (minus the house deejay style re-edits)..... 'MCI-Commandments' and 'Diamond 2 Crew-Prophecy (Breaker's Theme)' being just two examples of those.Seems everyone including next doors cat was involved in the making of this album and it still couldn't be done right the overall result is very poor even the re-mastering does little to save the individual tracks on Disc 1 as they are over compressed in my opinion.There is nothing 'Ground Breaking' ,'Essential' or even 'Crucial' on offer here in my opinion a totally unnecessary hyped up release full of the usual spiel.Sleeve Art = 3.5/5 CD's = 0.1/5

I also agree with Defcon-Project that not only is the mix that bad the the CE4 Version of Who is it? is awful! Surely the mighty Mantronik could of done a better job as this is not up to scratch at all. The artwork is impressive though. Make's me wonder if Mantronik really did do it as he has the skills and talent to achieve better.
Hugifyn
I have to agree with Defcon-Project - the mix is pretty awful :(
interactive man
downward spiral then?
Winasana
A Great collection of Classics remastered and repackaged the street sounds way , The label that started it all finally gets back to what it does best ELECTRO specially mixed and full length versions. and on VINLY a must for the collector and worth it just for the outstanding artwork.only bad point been IMO the version of WCWC / Surgery ... Not sure who or what Fresh 2 is but surgery is a track that can never be bettered so best left alone. Also available for the Digital Junkies in CD form containing a Mixed CD but sadly the mix is a bit of an Anti Climax for me anyway ... Enjoy ORIGINAL Electro Fans
Fenrikasa
Well its been a long time coming, Delays Delays Delays. But eventually it arrived on the doormat, so where do i start? well if you been watching this one then you will know whats on it and yes there worth having in lovely digital format and the artwork for the cd is splendid a real kick back to the original series but sadly thats where the good bit endsThe so called MIXED cd By Kurtis Mantronk is by far the worst Professional studio mix that ive ever heard and has a clanger in it that i am still struggling to comprehend Such a shame from someone who should really know better ( time to break out the rose tinted glasses again me thinks ) 5/10 for the album 10/10 for the artwork
Ubranzac
I agree with you - the comment about the mix by Mantronik is spot on (I cringed when monster beat repeated about 20 times then just stopped....) and to be honest I was expecting a mix from him to be a LOT better - bring back Mastermind.Album (songs cover etc) 9/10Mix 4/10Overall 7/10
