Maybe it is so obvious that nobody thought it worth mentioning, but Jungle Music is a remix (more like an update, really) of Steve C & Monita - The Razors Edge:

The information above says runout etchings are the wrong way round, but is it actually a case of the labels applied to the wrong sides? Both my copies labelled Side X play as the two untitled tracks, not Drug Me and Psalm IV; the matrix correctly ... See full review

I'm astounded that Bukem released Uncertain Journey on LGR. It sounds so dark and abrasive compared to the soft and, to my mind, rather uninspired music that Bukem's label was putting out at the time. It is vastly different from the harder Drum and Bass ... See full review

Yes, it is, plus a different version of said track on the other side. I don't know if the other version was ever released elsewhere, but it sounds like it is from the same time period and not a modern take.

I have both the original and repress and compared the two. The repress sounds no worse than the original to me, but it is a bit louder and the channel balance seems to be more even.

Of course, when you say get in the way, you mean nearly ruins. To stick that cheesy sample on top of a perfect tune, it boggles the mind....too many Jungle producers had a 'kitchen sink' aesthetic which has not stood the test of time and ruined many an ... See full review

Jump, Jump MKII and Presha III all take their vocal sample from 'The Todd Edwards Project - Jump'.

For this reissue someone thought it would be a good idea to pitch the tracks up by 4 or 5%, probably so they could be mixed with more recent tunes. Unfortunately, the tracks sound completely ridiculous at these speeds, so will need to be pitched down ... See full review
