every old skool rave collectors dream, in the serious collectors box. always like the original funny enough, by the S.O.S. Band.
this is right at the top as one of the best old skool 93 tunes.

Beautiful tune worth every penny because it will still sound fresh in years time

the Finest illusion original mix will always be the version for me such a great intro and first break such a great tune a total anthem !!!
but the recording / eq / pressing as Stuck_in_1992 says just doesn't do it any justice .

If your just a dj & want a cheeper copy to play out or mix with try - up your bum / code he 001 // Its a realy good 4 track white boot ep, with orig mix of this banger plus - ecology - time to make the floor burn - d.s.k.f.] top track from [new science e.p./ & acen - trip to the moon part 4 [10" version.. To buy all thos 12" on there would be well over £200's. More like £400 or £500 now with the insane resent price rise in jungle & breakbeat hardcore.

Original was so raw. It took a little over a year for it to reach us. When it hit it was keyspot.

I heard ways back that there was a law suit (samples) that pressed them to do the alternate version of finest illusion (substantiated?). Not sure if that's true or not, but why would it get changed otherwise? Both versions are great, sure, but the original is the original and was the big first experience in the face, and is super raw. 92 / 93 jungle is it, and maybe 94. But 92 / 93, it was true origin.

Steve Gurley wrote and produced this tune himself, mixing the accapella of The Finest live over the finished instrumental. Rob Playford wanted them to release this under a new artist name, they chose Foul Play Productions, which didn't hide their identity too well.

Probably the most well known Northampton tune I was on mushrooms for a month during the release of this and Northampton general could tell you something to make you wet your pants laughing blinding tunes! 5/5 Ater this Foul play moved to London to record with the big boys @ moving shadow but didn't ever get back to their roots, thanks Rob ya ruined their style.
