The biggest surprise on this Album is the Fast Eddie mix of Tyree's "Turn up the Bass". While Fast Eddie was responible for the famous "Scratch the Bass" mix in 1988, it was maybe hard to Remix this again, especialy to the same time some cheap and crappy commercial remixes of "turn up the Bass" were released on Sony Music. Fast Eddie was at that time very active in the Chicago Booty/Ghetto House scene, so i expeted nothing from this Mix. But what a surprise: he don't uses the Rap Of the original, only the phrase "Turn up the Bass" and create a real deep and cool Wild Pitch alike song.And his track "Encore" is also deep, the other Tyree track on it had also a lot soul. When i was purchasing this LP, i had the hope the old spirit of Chicago has come back. It wasn't so, it was only that short time in the summer of 1999...

Very enjoyable album from the Hometoown of House . They repressed this fine Double album and i am glad they did. So i had a chance to listen to this rocking Acid House Tracks again. Man, this is indeed MUSIC , not just organized noise. FUNK , melodies and occasional vocal samples (especially on A3 there's a lovely sample involved). After all , this sounds so much better to me , than most contemporary releases , that i start to wonder if there's something wrong ... (either with me , or the music scene ;-)...) But it's just the plain fact that good music is timeless.
This rocks fine all around. nice rhythm patterns, strong bass and acid lines arranged by experts of this music : DJ Fast Edddie, Tyreee Cooper, DJ Jaquc (who's responsible for that fine Song on A3 "Forgotten Soul"), Tim Baker, Phoenix and the Fun Police.
