AllMusic Review by

Piles of Bananarama compilations were released from the late '80s through the early 2000s, and they represent the group's past with varying degrees of success, but this disc is the first to concentrate solely on the 12" mixes. Some of the tracks are making their first appearance on CD, so it certainly has some level of appeal to collectors. The highlights include the "Extended Club Mix" of "Venus," the "Extended Mix" of "Really Saying Something," and the "Number One Mix" of "Trick of the Night." Make no mistake: this is no substitute for a proper best-of disc, such as 1988's The Greatest Hits Collection or 2002's The Very Best of Bananarama.
