    My version of this record is different than the pictures. The runouts match but the track details are not printed on the label.

      In the 2nd half of Fl It you can hear a sample from "The Groove Asylum - Feels Good". Some nice samples in this record.

        Balance is everything. I hate this record. I hate this record SO much itis rightfully omitted from my collection. And i own EVERY Edge record up to at least 30 - & the Edge tests - OH - AND i actually recorded Edge 13 with Gordon at his place. So i have FULL respect as Edge literally launched my career. But oh my GOD how much i STILL hate this fucking record ....i almost dont have the words :) :) :)

          Absolutely rinsed my copy since 1992. Breakbeat hardcore royalty without a doubt.

            Can we all just take a second to appreciate that Gordon did this "EDGE 1 " , but , also years before played on Sade records !!!! ????? i am still getting my head round this in 2022 , from 1987 . . .

              Compnded is such a great happy energetic classic indeed and never sounded dated in any given time period somehow. Good memories of playing this in the Late 90's in my livesets when playing harder club and house in Dutch clubs when these tunes were kind of forgotten at that time and not many bothered while trance was almost the only thing around everywhere. But it always worked and still filled dancefloors instantly!

              I always felt to believe the 'squirking' low sound in the intro was taken from the PC game Alley Cat, don't know why but that sound, and the whole track really somehow always reminded me of some bouncing cheeky cat and that awesome game I played to death in my youth haha :)

              Have to agree with below comments that the other tracks were defo overlooked by many over the years, certainly by me and when re-listening to my copy I have to admit that were some very varied and solid tracks too! Wouldn't misstand on many house EP's then and even today.

                "Compnded" is clearly the stand out track on this 12" and was just simply a huge track in its day. It is sample mayhem cleverly crafted together through the driving rhythm of the drums and percussion to create a monster of a track. Fantastic track that still sounds fantastic today, well if your an Old School fan anyway.

                  Although the vocal stab bit is originally from Patti La Belle, You can tell that they have sampled it from Shades of Rhythm's "Sweet Sensation"

                    Compnded as revived in the early years of the golden age of trance in 1996/97 - it surprisingly fit in really well.

                      Where are the synths on Clr Sky sampled from? It's doing my head in.
