CD3 Track 4, accordingly to the vinyl I own is actually the Dreaming Time Mix not the After Tea Dub https://www.discogs.com/Kamasutra-Storm-In-My-Soul/release/135443

I think this is one of the most underrated Renaissance albums there is. It's just a mix of good old fashion house music which is mixed well. Back in the day I would have hated this album because I was all about prog house and prog trance, but now that I'm older my taste in edm has changed so now I can really enjoy listening to this. I can do without some of the diva vocals but they're not to bad, all in all a fine comp from a once great label.

Great to 'come up' to. Never got the chance to hear FOS in a club, but I imagine they sounded great warming up before someone like John Digweed. That Andrea Mendez dub is just amazing, one of the best House tracks ever made.

I agree with all the below comments. The mix collection 3 on the whole is a very fine affair, lots of deep house, US style diva-ish vocals but most are in dub form and not full songs, tough tribal rhythms ala Angel Moraes styles, european grooves (euro doesn't have to mean cheesey) and slightly trancey progressive house but obvious boring, ploddy prog it ain't. For the time it was very cool and sexy. As with all old mixes it has a few tracks that haven't dated well but in 2014 is still worth a listen to hear where house music has been. These cds pre-date tech house and you can certainly hear that starting to emerge in these tracks, big basslines, sexy and hypnotic grooves and the sparse energy of techno. I think CD3 is my fave and still sounds very current. This will continue to be one of my fave DJ mix compilations and every so often I pull it out and give it a spin. Far better than boring, soul-less and funk-less minimal.
Fathers Of Sound also did an amazing remix of Simply Red's - Money's Too Tight to Mention, check it out.

You can hear the pops and scratches from the record on Disc 3 Track 6, Classic. It's great cause they were probably mixing it live, unlike most mix CD's that came out later. I love it.

This third "Mix Collection" is the most "vocal house-oriented" of the four Renaissance releases. However, is a perfect representative of the house music preferred by the dancing crowds in the middle 90's. Music a-la house divas, warm synths, lots of organic percussion, sexy voices and chunky melodies, all of them make a perfect journey to the less "progressive" side of progressive house.

House music may have changed a lot during the years, but this album doesn't sound dated at all, in fact it sounds a lot "fresher" that the first two Renaissance Mix Collections, and... even the fourth. And of course, there are lots of underground tunes, as it's usual in the series.

People who have enjoyed the housey side of the first Mix Collection will definitely find a similar sound here, but even if you have darker preferences, this album will set the mood for you. All in all, this is a solid record that doesn´t dissappoint.

This was a brave diversion from the proggy/trancey stuff I was expecting, but, I've got to admit, even though i was a bit against this kind of gentler, vocal housey stuff, it's actually very good. Each CD builds to a euphoric finale. Tingles down the spine stuff. Doesn't everyboby like that feeling?
