Now, if you have not been lucky enough to find the original releases, or you don’t have too much cash around to be spent on the original ones, this is a must have. A very solid compilation, covering some of house music's most essential releases even though this doesn't serve any great surprises but these are those classics that you must have heard - and comparing to any contemporary music, this music was way ahead of its time. For me, it was a tough choice between this Simply Vinyl, erm, vinyl version or then the Trax CD version. I bough this one because it offers a wider selection of tracks (that is, it had more tunes) and the pressing quality seemed to be fair but the only thing that I was disappointed with was that this compilation contains the shorter version of 'Acid Trax' which I assume to be featured in its full 11 minutes acid heaven form on the CD version. So, if you weren't "at it" back when these tracks were originally released, this is a great retrospective.
