Just like alexcolwill mentions in his comment below. I'll also concur that I've never heard this being played in a house set. This is a straight up, perfectly constructed, piece of techno power which would've had the regular house heads of the period run for cover!

Danced to this at the Zap in Brighton in 1995. This is one of my top ten techno records, I can't believ it goes so cheap here. Listen to the drums , it is superbly engineered by Clarke!

Wisdom to the Wise was (is) an absolute killer track. As has been said though, I certainly don't recall it being played in many house sets back in the early-mid 90s. It's a stone cold techno classic.

Maybe I'm the only one who feels this way, but I prefer Gonk to Wisdom to the wise.

Don't get me wrong, Wisdom to the wise is very menacing and clean but the percussion and off beat stabs in Gonk are SPOT ON. Gonk eventually develops an aggressive edge with the air-jet sounding noises and bassline, and then if you weren't stomping your feet hard enough already the line near the end of the track comes in.

Both tracks are timeless.

Massive Techno tune of the mid 90's . Brings back the memories of Dave clarke doing his essential mix on Radio One ' The Baron of Techno ... bomb bastic '

Wisdom to the wise by Mr Clarke Possibly the most memorable techno track ever recorded EVER.

Unfortunately the re-press is indeed transparent vinyl which makes the sound quality quite poor (coloured transparent vinyl is mostly inferiour quality). That's a pitty and keeps me searching for the original pressings ;-)
But...a killer record everybody should have in their collection.

I have the original with 1000 scratches on it ( record was played in every set I did ). Sometime ago I went to Amsterdam, bought a brand new Bush red two - repressed - and noticed a difference in color. The originals are non-transparent and the repress is transparent red. This is the only difference . The labels are completely similar.
