For the purists this is maybe not enough. But it will sell because the handfull of essential wanted dancefloor anthems are there on this vinyls. Get it while you can forget! Oh yeah the version of can you feel it is the instrumental version.

Sorry to buck the trend but as an acid-lover, this is poor. Barely a 303 in ear-shot. And obscure doesn't necessarily mean any good. A lot of half-baked ideas from producers who thought they'd have a stab at it cos everyone else was and their lack of creativity and ingenuity shows through. I kept one track. Pah!

A great new compilation from Soul Jazz, following on from 2005's "Acid: Can You Jack?" (which is also repressed to coincide with this new release.)
OK strictly speaking not every track on here is Acid, but I'll let that one go. The great thing about it is that while there are several well known acknowledged classics on here (151, Slam, Washing Machine, House Nation, No Way Back etc), these merely seem to be there to cement what is in fact primarily a collection of more obscure tracks of equivalent quality. Most of the above named tracks have appeared on several compilations over the years, so if it consisted only of such tracks, this release would probably not be essential to Chicago connoisseurs, but only useful as a round-up for those who are new to the music or who have never bought them before.
But with super in-demand tracks such as Rabbit Trax, and obscurities such as World Turns Around, Abstract Expressionism and Acid Wash, it is on another level.
I for one have been into Chicago and Acid House since I first heard it in 86 and 87, but at the time I was a student with no access to import shops, nor the funds to buy them anyway. In spite of having a couple of dozen UK vinyl and CD compilations of Chicago and Acid House, a full half the tracks on here are ones I have never encountered before. - Bravo!
By the way, if you can afford it, get the 2 double vinyl packs; the pressing quality is excellent, the graphic artwork looks great across the gatefold sleeve, and you get a 320kbps MP3 download included.
