I agree it was a huge tune back in the day and for many is still today . But for me this tune i'm bored to hear i do skip this track on CD compilations same goes for Speedy J. Something for your Mind another boring tune that has been played way too much on the Radio back then or in Record stores or in rave parties .

I don't understand why T99 : Anasthasia was so liked and overrated back then and nowadays , the sound offers nothing exceptionnal there were better tracks back in 1991 era .

For historical purpose you can buy it .

A2 (Cave Edit) and B1 (Dub Mix) are identical. This on the XL label is better value as it also has the Rap version and is a better quality recording/pressing.

When I was running my shop 'The Record Basement' in Reading in the early 90's, I also ran Parties. One particular weekend I was putting on a 'Nitrous'event at Reading University, and on that evening my headline DJ was none other than the legend that is 'Jumping Jack Frost'. I spoke to Nigel regularly as he was one of the first DJs I contacted when I was building up my DJ Mail out List for my label 'Basement Records' and Nigel used to batter the Promos and Plates I gave him and was a big fan of the label, anyways, he rang me a couple of days before the event to warn me he had an exclusive tune in his box and it was going to kill me. I said to him that I would be on the door when he was playing, so to send someone to get me when he was going to play it. Nigel said "no worries Phil, I am going to start with it, so you better have the lasers ready, heh heh. So when he arrived and was ready to play I went to the stage and waited, Frost put the track on the deck, brought down the fader on the last record and left it silent for 30 seconds, the anticipation was immense and then out of the darkness the first opening riff blasted the hall, the lasers kicked in and it was an Oh My God moment, Frost turned and looked at me and smiled and laughed.
I was all over him, what is it? whats it called? where did you get it from? and Frost filled me in.
First thing Monday morning, I rang Mos Music Machine (one of the top Distributors back in the day) and spoke to 'Dionne' and told her about the track and could she get me a weeks exclusive if I took a 1000 up front, she obliged, and over that week I sold every copy. For me this is one of my Top 10 if not the No1 Rave track ever made, its just simply the perfect Rave Anthem and the thought of when I first heard it still send chills down my spine.

The intro of "Anasthasia" is influenced by the intro of the Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana" Cantata.
It was before the whole techno planet copy the idea in using the begining of "Staaaatu Variabilis" as a stab.
Nice SH 101 look-alike bleeps (comes actually from a Roland D20), groovy breakbeats, strengthened by a TR 808 drum kit, hypnotics synth pads,very nice ingredients.
The intro is amazing and gives goose bump you cannot imagine better to start a gig.
This sound was copied all over 1991 and 1992 and in 1993/94 for Gabber music, just like the hoover sound of "Mentasm"... over and over,
remove these 2 sounds and only half of the "Hardcore-Techno" music of that era might have been put out….
Visionary work and respect is due to the innovator OLIVIER ABELOOS !
