Track A and B end's with lockout groove.

The quote at the beginning is an excerpt of Pope John Paul II's homily at Killineer, near Drogheda, County Louth, Ireland, on Saturday, October 29th, 1979.

The text used in the record is as follows:

"Now I wish to speak to all men and women engaged in violence.
I appeal to you, in language of passionate pleading.
On my knees, I beg you to turn away from the paths of violence
and to return to the ways of peace.
You may claim to seek justice..."

The opening speech in this great Acid House track is taken from the Popes vist to Ireland in September 1979 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_John_Paul_II%27s_visit_to_Ireland. It's an adress to the Irish Republican Army & other paramilitary groups like the UVF, UDA & INLA to stop fighting. A month before in August the IRA killed nearly 20 soldiers in an ambush & killed Lord Mountbatten the Queens cousin both on the same day. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warrenpoint_ambush

Quite possibly the best UK acid house record ever - with strong competition like "Voodoo Ray", "Stakker Humanoid" and a few others, that's quite some suggestion, but this one still has the same effect (for me) as it did back in '88 - and that's really saying something.

Not exactly the most perfect programming/recording ever, but that's part of the appeal - it all sounds so "live" in a way which electronic music often fails to do, especially in these over-produced times.

If it was possible for me to DJ old skool acid house, there is NO doubt that this one would be in my box at all times. A masterpiece.

This is one of the first acid house songs I heard as a teenager in the late 90's, and it scared the shit out of me. It's sort of terrifying if you listen to it loud enough as it drowns out any other nearby sounds and cuts through your brain like psychedelic colored scalpel. It's now almost 2 1/2 decades old and stills sort of gives me chills and makes me uneasy every time I listen to it on full blast. I know I'm not saying anything new here but this track has been such an impression on me, one of the few songs from my teen years I still listen to that I felt I NEEDED to testify to it's greatness. Back in the 90's, in high school, when I still actually did drugs I was afraid to put this on while high and f***ed up, like it might send me over an edge I might never come back from.

Jesus loves the world, so he blessed us with this acid creation. Lovely 'acid' with a simple funky, squelchy, high end 303 (actually a 101, I've been informed) squeek and squelch. Add on the nice vox samples: crowd chants (well sounds like it); some one saying acid; and of course the infamous call of aciiiiiid, and you have something that still sounds fresh after 20 years. How do they do it? Btw, John Paul II's speech at the start sums up the acid house ethos perfectly. Peace.

I totally agree with the above comments, a Acid House gem, took me quite a few years to obtain the track, even then it was on the Toob Tunes Vol 1 bootleg, it has the essential elements of Acieeeedness, dark & menacing, a relentless groove with the depth of an abyss, this is the stuff nightmares are made of, this track contains the essence of Acid House within its vibe, a wicked, wicked track, love it!

Jesus loves the Acid, an acid icon, so extremely powerful, that it blew me (almost litteraly) away every time I heard it in that infamous club in Destelbergen, Belgium. In the 17 years that have past, this release has kept it's strength and makes me long for those good old crazy Acid and New Beat nights. Simply brilliant...

one of the all time greats. this acid classic blows me away everytime. kids could listen to this now and never have any clue of its impact. most would think its an old track and it sounds dated. and thats fine. because most dont understand. but there's something so spectacular about this record. i dont know what it is, but every time someone plays it, my fist goes in the air!!!
