Wow just when you though you had explored all acid house music variations since collecting in 1988 at the birth of Acid, this came up.
Unknown to me, snapped it up straight away and was blown away by the trax. All 808 and 303, what was then experimental Indian music, is now seen as Acid House. One for the collectors sure to gain tremendous value over the years.

This is a truly unique recording because of the experimentation, and year and where it comes from.

So far ahead of time... Go on challenge those who claim acid came from England or USA in 1986.1985?? hit them with this..

I have this record! I have no clue where or when I picked up but just founded it in my old DJ flight case and it's MINT!!! I haven't opened this flight case in over 9 years!

well... it's a pity that the tunes fade out soon after they really start going absolutely crazy - eight minutes each [@ least] would've been even more mind-blowin'!!

sounds funny, no much variation between the tracks - every song with the same beat & bass line. maybe micro differences. anyway, I like it (but not sure if I really would like to pay more than 5 euros of it)

For sale here at over £3100 as of Dec 2014. Yes this record is historically important and ahead of time etc... But no record is worth the price of a decent used car. Funny how hype can drive prices.
I am so glad I picked this up in a charity shop 3 years ago for £0.50 !!! I did not even know that s record and just kept it for its fresh future sound considering the year. Would I feel bad an about selling it? Hell no if someone is crazy enough to pay four figures, I may just sell it and get the CD version on Amazon, or keep it ?

An album well worth seeking out for students of electronic music in general and of 80s dance music in particular. It's also a great listen.

This sounds like Goa Trance (original scene, 90s), amazing stuff :) and...1983? this is...WOOOW!

In regards to the initial comment/ interview with Singh. Stuart Aiken should totally feel ashamed, as I was reading the article, to hear that someone exposed such basic primitive music like acid tracks to Singh as some type of comparison to what he produced or produces. Sorry folks when I hear his ragas I only see the match with what Simon Berry /Art of trance or Oliver Lieb created and quite frankly would have been interested to see his response to hearing a track such as Kaleidoscope LSG remix which featured a magical compilation between Lieb and Berry. Please folks, blokes, etc. STOP COMPARING SINGHS WORK TO MINIMALIST ACID HOUSE FROM THE 80's THERE IS NO LINK THERE! MOVE ON
