Sleeve Notes:

"It was probably a stupid idea, the kind that, if you'd sat down & thought about it, you'd have laughed about, scrapped & moved on to the next one. It went like this - get a back room in a dirty old boozer on a Sunday night. Get a pair of DJ's who were more renowned for their party rockin' than their fluid mixing. Get guests, anyone & everyone from pop stars to shit hot DJ's & get them to play their favourite records. The only rule - our guys go on last. Build up your own anthems, find new heroes, find your own stimulants. You don't do it as a reaction against corporate clubs, you do it to exist alongside them. You think you'll get maybe 70 people, but after 13 weeks when you call it a day, you're turning away 700. Without trying too hard, you fuck with peoples perceptions. You get Holmer playing a set of foot stomping Northern Soul classics that sets off twinkles in people's eyes & talc on the floor; Weatherall banging on The Clash's "Groovy Tunes" after a set of mind blowing freak beats; you get The Chemical Brothers dropping Manic Street Preachers & The Beatles next to "Keep Your Ass Clapping" & "Wede Man"; in the week that a national paper describes your music policy as "no house music", you drop a load of 88-89 acid house classics and watch the crowd get that glint in the eye. Musically, every week you light the blue touch paper & run for cover. Somebody said "blow the whole joint up". We did.

Although the idea was hardly original (people have been doing mad Sunday sessions & back rooms of clubs for years), we seemed to strike a chord. Jaded clubbers came out of the woodwork to dance alongside the first times, modish youths rubbed shoulders with casuals & indie kids. You'd see DJ's & the occasional visiting pop star losing their inhibitions in dark corners & dancing 'til the lights went up. Pretensions & inhibitions just flew out the window...

The Social first rocked the tiny basement of The Albany on Sunday August 6th 1994. In the months since then, it's shifted venue a few times - festival tents in Sweden, one-offs at Corts & Hanover Grand, a short stretch at Smithfields, a proper Saturday night residency at Turnmills & our first away match, Deluxe in Nottingham (now our adopted second home). People come, sometimes arms folded, sometimes open minded. They usually all leave sweat soaked & converted, preaching the Social-ist manifesto.

Months of years down the line, all you have left as a souvenir of a life affirming night out is a crumpled flyer. With these albums, we're trying to bring a little slice of the Social into your home. At the end of the day, maybe it wasn't "legendary" but it was fucking inspirational to us & to hoards of clubbers, record buyers & promoters who came, saw & went off & started their own nights, made their own records. We felt we were doing something special & that our DJ's were the best around. We hope you agree."

I had every 90's material of the chemical brothers except this comp and I expected something special. unfortunately, it was only above average. brothers gonna work it out is much better.

This record was a gateway to breaks for me in 1997. I learned about so many breaks artists either directly or indirectly by lookinga t the setlist.

Technically speaking the mixing won't blow you away, but it's clean enough to make a good album. But mixing isn't the point - the range and creativity across breaks-related genres is top notch. The set starts out fun and funky, climaxes and resolves in great form. Worth picking up.

Usually, I don't like DJ mixes, but this one rocks the house! It's the best DJ mix I've ever heard! The tunes are wicked and the Chemical Brothers' mixing skills are greater than great. Furthermore, it's a live recording - usually live recordings are more rough, lovely and sincere. So is this one.
This CD is quite rare, so if you see it - GRAB IT at any cost!
