          I have this record! I have no clue where or when I picked up but just founded it in my old DJ flight case and it's MINT!!! I haven't opened this flight case in over 9 years!

            An album well worth seeking out for students of electronic music in general and of 80s dance music in particular. It's also a great listen.

              More like Goa Trance then Acid house. Awesome though!

                I had heard of this record through the years, like the same way you might hear of Bigfoot, Chupacabras,or Nessie. It was a myth, something that just should not be, a rumor that in 1982 an electronic acid house record was made in India with rollin 808s and layered 303 and 909-like sounds. I came across acid house and acid music in oh i dont know, maybe 1988? something like that. Eventually, the myth came to reality, and in my hands landed a reissue of the mythic record, and yes it does and did exist, and India was rockin acid house in 1982, wow.
