AllMusic Review by

Each volume of Richard Blade's Flashback Favorites collects rare dance mixes and 12-inch versions of songs from familiar new wave and post-punk bands. This is specialist material, but for collectors seeking these mixes, these CD collections are an excellent choice. Vol. 4 contains 12 songs, including Tears for Fears' "The Way You Are," When In Rome's "The Promise," Ultravox's "Reap the Wild Wind," Naked Eyes' "When the Lights Go Out," Spandau Ballet's "Chant #1," Yello's "Oh Yeah," the Thompson Twins' "Lies," Dexy's Midnight Runners' "Come On Eileen," the Jam's "Beat Surrender" and the Vapors' "Turning Japanese."
