The Keep Smiling Medley Mix is the same as the B side of https://www.discogs.com/Various-Acid-Trax-Megamix-Volume-1/master/85250
And the length is wrong, should be 18.20

Glad to see people catching up on this! A mere five years ago and this still was in the dungeon of forgotten memories of Chicago House. Well, of course this isn't just about Chicago, but still, when you consider the nature of the Maurice Joshua exclusive featured there (IMHO his best and wildest track ever), it makes this compilation an absolute must-have for every true Chi house heads! The Love Story'Extasy is also absolutely wonderfull, obscure and exclusive.

It's advertised as being available on CD on the back cover, but I'm certain it wasn't...the bastards!

p.s. if you click on 'Six Brown Brothers' it tells you it's Van Christie - don't think it is - pretty sure it's Spanky & DJ Pierre...

the full mix on side D is done by double trouble. Hope it helps

I tried to get this on tape as a kid, but the store had sold out and I never saw it till about 15 years later at a boot sale for 50p. Even then I only have 1 record out of 2 (Sides C+D missing). The consolation is that what I do have contains one of the best 80's Acid tracks there is, Love story by Exstasy. Arranged around a simple deep acid bassline with only the kick drums to support it, its a real eerie acid track. It's shame as I don't know who actually created this, no writer credit was ever given on the sleeve.

The only other stand out track is Maurice Joshua's The other side, a vocal track with a great hook that works so well. Some day I hope to find a complete version of this and find out, just who Exstasy were.

Until then I give it 4/5
