A warning!!
Sadly, this CD pressed by PDO UK is one of these early UK CDs from this plant that is very prone to CD rot / "Bronzeing", making many CDs unplayable with time. My copy (bought in 94) played flawlessly up until about 2006 or so, when it started to bronze. First, it was the magical beauty of Balil / black dog that got fluttered and distorted, a few months later, the paenultimate monster by Barbarella/Caspar Pound bit the dust.
Haven't played it since then :-(

one of the favorite compilations.
jealously guarded.

To be honest here, I got this CD because it was $3 in a record store near -at that time- home, in Buenos Aires.

It seems that now it has become a cult CD. Well, I like it a lot. But it's not the best CD ever!

The music is quite impressive -having into account that it's from 1993!- and it's ok to still listen to it sometimes.

It has, though, one of my fab songs ever No Deeper Love (Irrisistible Force Mix) by Rising High Collective.

If you are still able to get a copy of it -at reasonable price-, don't hesitate and go for it. Otherwise, just forget it. I won't pay $50 for it.
