great album, wish it would get a vinyl release. 'All In' is one of my favourite tunes of the last 10 years and is a bonafide anthem in our house.

not the best pressing, a lot of surface noise on the intros of both sides. disappointing to say the least.

i've never seen this available to buy. does anyone know if this is another lathe cut like the recent 'Revolutions' single?

B3 Feel The Music

i would suggest that it is a mere coincedence, in a similar fashion to the way that these two releases resemble each other

a boxset would be most welcome, but i wonder if they have plans to release each volume over the next couple of RSD events.
i think that this is the strongest volume, but the others are still audio dope and i would love to have Pot Jar on wax

why are actual record shops permitted to put RSD releases up on discogs for double or treble the reommended retail price?
it's one thing that there are unscrupulous scalpers engaging in this practice, but any retailers found doing it should have... See full review

mine sounds ace too, maybe Craig got a faulty press, but i’ve never had any problems with any other BBE records.
such a great compilation of tunes, many of which i could only dream of affording to buy OG’s of, so very happy to have this.

the instrumental of ‘hypeness’ is definitely more of a dub than a traditional instrumental. it has elements of the vocal drifting in and out of the mix, other musical elements that are somewhat lost in the vocal mix and a intro ragga vocal that isn’t... See full review

mine has just arrived and i’m afraid i have to echo the other comments. i’ve received 25 year old second hand records this week in better condition.
however, the music is wonderful, the pressing just doesn’t do it justice.

i agree that the Dream Mix is the one, recently played by Luke Unabomber on his selection for wwfm. plucked out of a bargain bin for 50p many years ago, but would happily pay 20 times that for it.

wtf is pop rap? cos this ain’t it ffs, when have you heard this on the radio. some of the sub genres on here are laughable.

been some bad gals bringing it over the last few years, Leikeli47 is one of them with skills and personality in abundance. this is a dope album that needs a vinyl press.

just picked up the reissue of this tune and whilst i am thoroughly enjoying it, i don't think the drums at the start sound like the OG version. they have a different swing or something. two lovely covers nonetheless.

much to my surprise, the version of Long Red is actually a re-edit that elongates the drum break intro to form the basis of the whole track and has a few 'Ya out there? Well clap ya hands to what he's doing, LOUDER. On tempo Jack' vocal samples thrown... See full review

the B-Side information is actually correct, it's an edit of the Blueboy 'Remember Me' track which sampled Marlena Shaw's 'Woman Of The Ghetto'. She never released a track called 'Remember Me'.

the tracklisting is incorrect on the labels, A5 is listed as Paradise when it is actually on the B side; track B1. the sleeve doesn't indicate which tracks are on which side either.
