Notes

Vocals taken from "Help (Get Me Some Help)" by Tony Ronald, a Dutch Top 10 single in 1971.

In some cases, vocals on "Wonderfull Days" should be credited to Dutch singer Albert West
The original sample had not been cleared at the time of release and was thus replaced by West's vocals due to copyright infringement in various territories (mostly the German market).

As stated by Charly Lownoise & Mental Theo in the book 'Mary go wild: 25 jaar dance in Nederland'

      If you’re after a copy of this EP, or at least the ‘Rotterdam Mix’ then don’t buy this record, buy the pressing on Master Maximum Records (its original label). The CD single and this pressing (both licensed from Centrals) appear to be pressed from a different master/location as there is a dip in volume during the track on the ‘Rotterdam Mix’ which is present on both these releases but NOT on the original Master Maximum pressing. In fact, it’s almost like they’ve pressed this version direct from the CD single. Trust me because I’ve got all 3. The original pressing from 1994 on Master Maximum is the one you need.

        I'm not sure what's happened here but the mistakenly named Trance Edit on this release is not the Trance Mix on the original record. While the word Trance might scare you away, in fact it is a slamming Gabber remix with heavy undertones of German rave music. Firstly, there is a very loud bassline synth that sounds thunderous and haunts the entire track. Also there is a much harder Gabber kickdrum, harder than the Rotterdam mix!! The first breakdown has a powerful German rave sound (very similar to George Vagas's Hyperdome Experience) and throbs along the beat and bassline. Unlike the other versions, this remix only uses two words from the well known singing vocals: "Your Hands!", strangely it fits in really well. For about 30 seconds there's a breakdown with a slightly different version of the original melody, and just when you think it will kick in, our powerful German rave riff just takes over with the pounding beat and intense bassline! There's also the twinkling piano sound which can hear briefly, more in the breakdown, but its there ... somewhere. Although it says Trance Edit, I'm wondering if this is an uncredited remix, because it sounds completely different. This is a good example of Dutch Gabber connecting with German Rave music, creating awesome results.

        Live At London (Transcentral Mix) is not on the original release and has been nicely added to this Australian release. This sounds like a much more relaxed Hard Trance remix, more epic Techno synth melodies and parts of the song that sound like an orchestra. The classic piano is present but not exactly the main part of this remix, it definitely sounds like the music they were making on Master Maximum Trance Traxx, more Hard Trance synths and cut up atmospheric Pads. A bit slower and softer beat, not as good as the original, but a Wonderfull remix nonetheless. I wonder if the name Transcentral has been nicked from The KLF, having said that, The KLF did say Transcentral is a word you could use for anything and didn't have any real definition.

        The Rotterdam Mix was the most popular remix played by DJs, and with good reason! A classic example of Happy Gabber, using hard Rotterdam beats and synth riffs alongside the fairground melody and big singing vocals. On paper, its a bit of a jarring combination, but Charly and Theo make it a successful product. Using Chuck D's sample "here we go again" from my favourite rap song of all time (Bring The Noise) probably helps. :)

        Wonderful Days was very popular in the Australian rave scene and was licensed by Central Station Records onto CD single and limited vinyl. In 1996, there were a bunch of copies of this record in Central Station Records, and I happily bought this record for $5! At some point in 2006, I submitted this record to Discogs, I was a bit surprised about this, but those Happy Hardcore tracks licensed by Central Station probably didn't escape Australia and pressed in limited amounts.

          Vocals and more lifted from Tony Ronald - Help (Get Me Some Help), 1971.

                This was clearly inspired by a new German sound that was introduced in the Summer of 1994. It had the tempo of hardcore gabber (say 160-170 BPM), but also more melody and a more positive feel than previously available hardcore. Artists like Westbam, Marusha, Perplexer, Mark'Oh, Scooter and U96 added various new elements like bagpipes, musical samples and smurf-style vocals (the latter by sampling 33rpm LPs at a speed of 45rpm).

                "Wonderfull Days" was created around the same principle. In this case, a sped up sample of a forgotten Dutch top 10 hit, "Help (Get Me Some Help)" by Tony Ronald, was used. However, as the record hit the big time and the source of the sample was discovered, they had to replace the sample by resung vocals. It charted in the first week of 1995, remained in the charts for 13 weeks and reached #2 in the Dutch Top 40, only held off from the top spot by a smurf cover of 2 Unlimited's "No limit".

                  This is the australian release of "Wonderful Days". The voice is a little bit harder than the original and the "Trance Mix" isn't the mix that we already know! It's another seven minutes remix. I'll remember me... This song was played on MTV in october 1994 with that special voice. 10 years later the "Rotterdam Mix" with that voice appears on the double album "ID&T presents Charly Lownoise" in 2004.
