The Best of the 12" Mixes compiles ten extended remixes from James "D Train" Williams and Hubert Eaves III's body of work as D Train. If you were partial to a particular mix of any of the duo's singles that wasn't made available on their three proper albums, it might behoove you to seek this out. But even then, you're not exactly guaranteed to find what you're looking for, and it's not as if radio DJs and club DJs informed listeners and dancers of what particular version of each song was played -- so, unfortunately, some gambling might be involved. Another issue to consider is that a number of the tracks here appear as bonus tracks on Unidisc's CD reissues of the studio albums. Although this contains mixes of some of D Train's best moments, it doesn't work as a suitable best-of, either.
