Blimey. Hearing is believing... Apple Crumble Mix is a top class piano chugger! Thanks to djdom1uk for the tip.

My copy (Shaft-01 version) has 4 tracks on it, 2 on each side. I wonder if this submission is incorrect? If all the submissions are incorrect? The CD versions of this release have 4 tracks.

Its all about Bolts Beats, what the . . seriously dark, like its been dragged out of 1993 and plonked into 1991, so dark and refreshing for the time, one of my top 5 choonz of 91, fierce!

Skip the other mixes of the title track, and listen to this one:

Roobarb & Custard (Apple Crumble Mix)

It removes vocal/theme tune samples, and is a very good tune!

Following on from the above comment, the Ffrreedom release of this track is totally reproduced, and sounds a lot cleaner than the original white label mix. Due to this, the white label mix is a bit more 'ardcore. It also contains a terrifying acidic track on the B-Side, sadly omitted from this release.

This track heavily samples the Roobarb and Custard theme from the 1970s kids' TV programme of the same name, but the vocal snippets are not original. Failing to obtain permission to land the original Richard Briers vox (eg "Roobarb's slim pianist claws danced quickly over the keys") they hired Richard Easter from the Radio 1 Steve Wright in the Afternoon gang to re-record them. However if you can track down the original white label version which came out before the FFRReedom version, you will find the same tune but with the unauthorised vocals from Briers still there...
