great music but the sound quality is very very poor.

Although it does not include what I consider not only his,but anyone's greatest Techno/House achievement "It Is what it Is".This is the greatest Techno E.P ever, which defines what is great about the genre.I will not go on too much about "Strings Of Life" which has had plenty of discussion.but to say that it is THE tune of the Rave generation.Every other tracks on here is are stone cold classics."The Dance" is a brilliant and vibrant intro into the world of Techno with is pounding beats,hissing slippery unique Detroit hi-hats and the wonderful,heavenly strings that combine with the bendy elastic bass line that introduce you to the world of Deric May.All the others are the very best you could ever hope to hear from this genre.From the mental(and much sampled)bassline of Wiggin to electronic wonder of Nude Photo which still sounds futuristic 25 or more years later.Beyond The Dance rewinds and keeps folding back of it's self,with it's brutal hi hats and funky waist shaking bass line until it reaches it's almost orgasmic climax.And Sinister does what is says on the tin,if angels came down from heaven and turned their hand at being "Sinister".This is as good as any genre of dance music could ever hope to reach,from the king of Detroit

Very hard-to-find release, this. Contains most of the best of Derrick May's peerless output, including the full length mix of "The Beginning" (unlike the Innovator box-set which fades out the manic percussion at the end) and "Emanon" which is pretty scarce too. However, "Nude Photo 88" is little more than an interesting period piece now, and why include "Salsa Life" or "Freestyle" when you could have "Drama" or "It Is What It Is"? No matter, this was the perfect introduction for me to Transmat when I got it back in '94 or '95.
