I mostly disagree with the other reviewers. The Bukem and Conrad cd is dope sure, im a very peripheral dnb fan though, but I think this CD is great and something that I can certainly come back to even now in 2012. it has style and class as would be expected from that dynamic duo.
The Frisky? Cd is the weak link in my opinion i hardly touch it.
The standout for me is the Rulin CD. non-stop grooves, 90's new york garage at its vocal best. CJ mack and Todd Terry picked some excellent tracks and this CD is probably one of the reasons i'm a house and garage head today after picking this up at 14, many years ago. You owe it to yourself to go back in time and listen to this as a historical snapshot, chock full of 909 drums, gospel vocals, snappy drums arrangements, bouncing bass and synth stabs that were a part of the scene then, that is starting to see a slight underground resurgence now. I can break out each individual tune today and drop it in a set and still get a great response. If you are afraid to play music with soulful diva's, pianos, and old drum machines and synthesizers, dont worry about it. The rest of you that get the vibe. Cop this.

The Bukem CD is still one of the best mixes I have ever heard even after all this time. It just summed up the moment perfectly. The tracks were fresh, the MCing was original (Conrad has been on such good form as this) and the mixing is just what you'd expect from Bukem. It sounds like a live set but without the crowd noise, which is something the Logical Progression series can never say.

I still get tingle up my spine when 'Night Train' blends in, or the Peshay Reworking of 'Music' starts to creep across. Takes me right back to being in a huge tent, in the middle of a field, at 7 am, after dancing all night, with the sun rising and shining in through the open doors as Bukem works the crowd with another awesome track. If you were ever into the scene you'll know just what I mean!

I only bought this for the Bukem CD, but after listening to the other 2 discs the Todd Terry mix is definitely the weakest. The Fontaine/Pleased Wimmin disc is alright though.

If you ever used to listen to Bukem/Fabio/Jumpin' Jack Frost around 1996 then you simply MUST get a copy of this from somewhere. Get a mate to burn you a copy, or better still go out and buy it. Its hard to find, but so worth it. If you are really into your mixes, then you'll know that a copy of the Sasha/Digweed Renaissance Mix Collection sells for about £80+ on Ebay as its so hard to find and so f*cking good! Give it a couple of years and this'll be the same. Absolutely sublime.

I have to agree with christauff's review of this pack. The "Logical Progression" LTJ Bukem disk is a great jumping in point for drum/bass fans.

I myself like the "Frisky?" disk that Seb Fontaine and Jon Pleased Wimmin contirbuted. It's light hearted and great music for the car.

The weak link is definitely "Rulin" from CJ Mackintosh and Todd Terry. This is definitely not their best for some odd reason.

CD1: Rulin (68:16) - Mixed By CJ Mackintosh & Todd Terry is mainly forgettable, I have listned to it twice in the last 8 years, since I bought the album in Lancaster, UK. Perhaps someone else could offer a review of this CD in particular.

CD2: Frisky (73:00) - Mixed By Seb Fontaine & Jon Of The Pleased Wimmin effectively captures what was playing on the juke boxes in bars and on the BBC's Radio One Essential Mix Fridays in 1995, in th UK. This was the beginning of the Prog movement, and the philosophy behind the mix (parts house and trance) reflect the same movement in the UK DJ movement that Sasha and Digweeds first Northern Exposure release captures (but theirs with more finesse and a lot more originality).

CD3 contains only a single track, hence the absence of track times for the LTJ Bukem mix. As far as CD3 is concerned, this is the original sound of LTJ Bukem. It still sounds cutting edge, and makes you want to get into D&B all over again (too bad the scene has atrophied into repetition and poor imitations, IMHO). CD3, as mentioned is a single track, a little over 60 minutes and really demonstrated the powerful combination that MC Conrad and Bukem projected, the mixing is flawless, you can hear the vinyl crackling all the way through. I have always found the bass levels to be off in this CD, but the music still makes it a member of my Top 10 dance/electronica CD of all time. Friends of mine, who are not into the electronic music always ask me to burn a copy of this CD.
