    192-page booklet - so many archives photos and interviews. Great Job!

      Not many bubbles in Analogue Bubblebath 3, rather like Unselected Ambient Works

        Incredible compilation, one of the many examples of music that will be lost if labels don't make an effort on recovering them. Because right now there is only a specific niche and a specific generation who remembers this.
        EDIT: Actually surprise! They uploaded their Trance Europe Express/Trance Atlantic to bandcamp! That is great news and I hope every label follows, at least temporarly, at least putting it to sale somewhere.

          Accompanied by a 192-page booklet with extensive artist interviews, scene articles and playlists, this 2-CD compilation quenched the thirst for information about electronic dance music that was in short supply in the early internet era. Chill out originators The Orb feature with a remix of "Majestic" taken from their U.F.Orb album.

          There were a succession of Trance Europe Express and Trance Atlantic Express compilations in the years that followed.

            Best deal of the 21st century on CD! Excellent assortment of classic ambient and what was then called trance(far cry from the garbage today). Eclectic in that most tracks actually sound different and attain uniqueness of and to the artists. Yes folks electronic musicians who dont all sound the same at the machines of loving grace.
            The opening track is what hooked this aficionado early Orbital was groove laden electronic funkiness thick with intricacy and melody but in all honesty all the tracks are great esp the Material remix by Orb!!

              Just a short question: are this tracks mixed or single tracks?

                What an album this is. If you want a taste of the chill-out rooms of the early 90s raves and the after-rave come down sessions in someone's front room on the sofas as the dawn fights its way through the tightly closed curtains, here it is. Enjoy.

                  this was great, wish I still had mine. crash course!

                    i thought this was actually a pretty weak release compared to the following volume which sounded much more modern and cutting-edge. the mastering on these cd's is very poor and there is a definite lack of "oomph" in the mixes. indeed, some great artists and a few great tracks, but overall i was very disappointed after being exposed to volume 2 before this one. still keeping it in my collection though for prosterity's sake.

                      The entire series is beautiful, unfortunately the booklet was impossible to read without damaging and quickly fell apart.
