If anyone asked for the best condensed history of Chicago acid house, I'd refer them to this compilation. Not only is Acid Rain the most comprehensive compilation available in one release, it also contains some of the best digitally-released masters of these tracks. Both classic and obscure, this comp is the closest I've seen to what could be considered 'the complete package'.
Simply:
ESSENTIAL

Arjan Rietvink did a fantastic job. every track is remastered to consistently highest quality. this is an essential house compilation, alongside Traxbox and of course Acid Thunder

Pretty cool collection, but some sound shit when compared to the original vinyl [admittedly some sound better tho]

Funny he put both Jack Frosts' 'Shout' and 'Cool & Dry' on here, as they're basically the same track.

Had to comment on this one. I have over 30 vintage House and Acid compilations on vinyl, most bought at the time, and a good dozen CD compilations acquired over the intervening years. None is of consistent quality - an exception being the superb "Acid House" and "Mysterons" collections on Soul Jazz. Those older compilations always have a handful of shonky tracks on them, but they remain indispensible to me as each and every one has one or more unique track(s) above the quality bar.
This collection takes it to the next level. Not only is the quality exemplary, bringing together 61 (!!) tracks combining well-known favourites with lesser known classics and possibly covering every one of those compilations I own, it STILL manages to throw in at least a dozen tracks that I have never heard before - and what tracks! In spite of Terry's difficulties in procuring his original shortlist (or maybe to some extent, because of them), there are some real unexpected gems dotted throughout the compilation. The same will be true for any Acid House aficionado, and the great thing is, the selection of tracks will be different for every individual. By that token, I shall not bore the reader by listing them, but simply exhort - "GO BUY"

Well compiled Mr Farley
