This is my all time favourite video. I acquired a copy in 1989. It was 'borrowed'/stolen from me in 1994. Ever since, I have been desperately trying to get a replacement copy, so far to no avail. Personally, I'm amazed that it hasn't been re-released by Rephlex on DVD, along with the vinyl re-releases "Eurotechno" by Stakker and "Humanoid Sessions 84-88". Along with the video for 'Stakker Humanoid', this is one of the pioneering classics of music video and any electronica fan should consider their collection incomplete without it.

"Get it on & get with it". This video mix tape was made by Glenn Gunner & Jagz + graphics by STAKKER (later Futur Sound Of London). This amazing video is considered as THE ACID-HOUSE MASTERPIECE. The psychedelic & phuturistic computer-made visuals (no fractals) were used a year later in 1989 for the follower "Euro Techno Video" by Stakker.
Soundtrack starts with a coupled version of 2 similar classics : Farley Jackmaster Funk - Give Yourself To Me (1986 Trax) & Master C&J - When You hold Me (1986 Trax).
Classics tunes like "Security" by The Beat Club, "Oochy Koochy" & "Crashin" by Baby Ford are included & also reworked versions of "Acid Over" by Tyree, "Can You Party" by Royal House or Cool House's "Rock This Party right" to name a few.
As Gunner recently explained in an interview, "The Evil Acid Baron Show" is originally a Rhythm King Records people's project & some of their artists (Michellé from S-Express & Baby Ford) are singin live on tracks like "Superfly Guy".
Along the other classic stuff remixed, the mix also features Gunner & Jagz's own unreleased acid stuff from 1988. I regret it has never been released on wax.

I recommand every people who wants to discover what acid house means to see this video. This is the essence of acid house.
