For sale here at over £3100 as of Dec 2014. Yes this record is historically important and ahead of time etc... But no record is worth the price of a decent used car. Funny how hype can drive prices.
I am so glad I picked this up in a charity shop 3 years ago for £0.50 !!! I did not even know that s record and just kept it for its fresh future sound considering the year. Would I feel bad an about selling it? Hell no if someone is crazy enough to pay four figures, I may just sell it and get the CD version on Amazon, or keep it ?

In regards to the initial comment/ interview with Singh. Stuart Aiken should totally feel ashamed, as I was reading the article, to hear that someone exposed such basic primitive music like acid tracks to Singh as some type of comparison to what he produced or produces. Sorry folks when I hear his ragas I only see the match with what Simon Berry /Art of trance or Oliver Lieb created and quite frankly would have been interested to see his response to hearing a track such as Kaleidoscope LSG remix which featured a magical compilation between Lieb and Berry. Please folks, blokes, etc. STOP COMPARING SINGHS WORK TO MINIMALIST ACID HOUSE FROM THE 80's THERE IS NO LINK THERE! MOVE ON

Incredible release, I wish I found out about it earlier. This is by far the earliest and most seminal Acid House release - well before the Chicago caught on the 303 potential. Never mind the comparisons being made between Chicago Acid House and this stuff. This music has slim similarities to 1980s Chicago Acid House wave to come. Instead, it actually sounds more like the acid and acid house that was being pumped in Europe in early-mid 1990s - well a decade ahead of its time! This is a musical time capsule. Indian vibes mixed with the soft 303 sounds of acid music (and familiar beat) that by most accounts sound a DECADE ahead of their time, and still sound fresh today.
