Sasha said in his interview at DJMag in 2016 that this record is the most valuable in his 50k record collection. Quote "...a one-sided grey piece of vinyl with nothing on it, no note or anything..." I think he was talking about this one.

This is most definitely one of the best techno/acid tracks ever made. I played the shit out of it in the early 90's and it would just destroy the place ! It's one of a series of special mixes the K.L.F./J.A.M.M.S. put out in limited amounts that were only sent to DJ's on their mailing list. If you see one for sale and you can afford it then grab it quickly !

one of the rarest tracks from the early 90's , only 350 made , and thankfully never bootlegged . this grey vinyl version without labels is totally different to all other versions . to hear this played full volume in a club is an incredible experience especially if you are having an err 'enhanced' night ?!! lol .
compeltely different to all other tracks out there at the time , this is a virtual journey along the M62 motorway in northern england - a bit like the KLF's concept lp chillout wa a virtual road trip accross america . i never knew the vocal was pete wylie tho , he sounds more manchester accented on this record than liverpool where he is from ? strange .
it is a holy grail of uk warehouse acid house encapsulating the illegal rave feel of those northen parties in abandoned warehouses and fields around the M62 locality . with its pounding reverbed warehouse kick , and sirens type noises which vaguely resemble old blackburn mills 'clocking off' sirens and a vocal which is different to the scottish accented commercial remixes , this stands the test of time . its going to cost a lot of money to acquire and original probs about £250 , but surely worth it . sasha had the vision and balls to play this when half the north was listening to ital style piano happy house and regularly used to drop this at his gigs at the time ie shellys in stoke and totally destroy the venue .
amazing !
