Start of my Electronica fascination

These are Cd's I started buying after joining the U.S. Navy in 1994. My old friend really got me into rave, house and techno. Found out soon, "electronica" is a whole lot more than that. Owned my very first Cd player that year, as well! Soon I bought an Awai stereo system and it was great. Those were cool days in Virginia.

  1. Moby - Move

    30 For Sale from $1.95

    First heard Moby on the radio in LA, CA. It wasn't until I heard his stuff in the club that I bought my first Cd from him. In short...Wow!

  2. Portishead - Dummy

    42 For Sale from $0.50

    Was literally blown away first hearing this on my friend's stereo. Never heard anything like this before and didn't know what trip hop was as of yet.

  3. Goldie - Timeless

    41 For Sale from $0.31

    Another kick ass album I love to this day. A Navy bud's very high recommendation that I haven't forgotten.

  4. Moby - Everything Is Wrong

    26 For Sale from $0.65

    Was so impressed with his Move EP that I really became a fan when I purchased this album! And what an album this is! It really samples so many different genres of music in less than an hour. Am still a Moby fan to this day and I'm glad for it.

  5. Air Liquide - Red

    21 For Sale from $3.00

    Discovered this album when I heard one of their tracks on the "Chillout!" Instinct label compilation and was impressed. My friends didn't get their style as this was very technical.

  6. Plastikman - Musik

    19 For Sale from $4.27

    Read a review of this in Urb magazine. Glad I got this, because of the minimal style and kick ass bass effects!

  7. The KLF - The White Room

    27 For Sale from $1.00

    A really good LP by an artist that I wish stuck around a bit longer. Still one album I really like. Purchased the UK version years later. It's a bit different in terms of track lengths and flows seamlessly.

  8. La Bouche - Sweet Dreams

    20 For Sale from $1.50

    Melanie Thornton was a great singer. R.I.P. Melanie. You are truly missed.

  9. Enigma - MCMXC a.D.

    24 For Sale from $1.99

    There's definitely more to Enigma than just the electronica label. His music is good to dance to, chill out/yoga to and great for Valentine's Day!

  10. Massive Attack - Blue Lines

    6 For Sale from $1.99

    Have already owned the "Sliver" original movie soundtrack, so I picked this up. Obviously was won over, because "Unfinished Sympathy" is just one of the great tracks on this winner!

  11. Tricky - Maxinquaye

    35 For Sale from $1.39

    Already realized Tricky was in Massive Attack and picked this up shortly after this was released. Still one of my trip-hop faves and my friends dug it as well.

  12. Underworld - Dubnobasswithmyheadman

    31 For Sale from $1.89

    A raving review in Urb magazine made me very interested in this album. Was shocked this was the same group that made 80's dance-pop under this name and little known Freur before that. This was miles ahead of anything they've done (80's that is), and still sounds as fresh as it did back in 1994!

  13. Real McCoy - Another Night

    7 For Sale from $3.00

    I liked this then, but now it just a memory really. Good for its time, no doubt.

  14. Stereo MC's - Connected

    35 For Sale from $1.00

    I got into them after hearing "Connected" in clubs. Bought some of their music and dang it! ended up having their Cd's stolen. "Some sailor buddies are not your real friends", ey?

  15. Orb* - Orbus Terrarum

    32 For Sale from $2.44

    A friend gave me this Cd because, he thought The Orb were techno. I'll admit I didn't get it either the first time, so I passed it a dummy! Glad I purchased it again after obtaining their other albums. Didn't realize or truly grasp, what I missed out on the first time.

  16. Enigma - The Cross Of Changes

    56 For Sale from $0.99

    Had to have this after purchasing the "Sliver" original soundtrack. My friend would blast this album in his car and we cruised listening to it. Good days those were.
