Many of the records in my collection can be for sale. Quite a few are not. If you're not sure, but see something you have a hankering for. Just ask.
I presently do not do rips to digital.

Depending on what point of the release cycle you picked it up at. Either a first run, or in the middle of them trying to keep up. They would likely have had to put quite a few of them in the basic R&S outer sleeve. I have numerous R&S releases from... See full review

Can we talk about a reissue on this one? It'd be nice to have this music available for a new generation.

I recall the Ultra Rare Trax, and its mix down issues. It's a completely different animal on vinyl, and begs to be played on a larger system so that the entire range of what's going on with that bass line can be understood.

Excellent example of the NYC kitchen sinks worth of spot the sample disco loop house from How & Little. Effective ep for dj tool use.

Functional loop house from 1991. Most of it is daytime house music. i.e. Sunday, and still up.
Early to Rise is basically a "Gypsy Woman" re-edit. The longer one is a little more fleshed out sounding and not afterhours music. The Early Morning mix is... See full review

You wish that with a cast of people behind the board on this one that there'd be more to work with here. But, do give this one a go for getting out there with the more leftfield and grooving My Acid House mix.

Incorrect. I remember picking it up off the Watts sheet very early on in 1994, and it was definitely in my bag a good chunk of that year on account of Spontaneous Lifeform and Wardance.

Brilliant ep of uptempo (130bpm) ecstacy induced day glo shuffle beat oriented poppy house from the summer of love that comes complete with a saxophone. The front side has a few more vocals, and the backside is slightly more dub oriented.

This is remarkably bad, in a dementedly good way. Perfect wtf material.
There is a kind of wedding cover band sort of enthusiasm in their renditions.

Beautiful functional tribal driving deep New York house. Pick a mix for where you need to get to. About the only difference between the four offerings is in the intro, and if you want to build up from it, or mix in to it. Pure class, and devastating.
