Their best tune with a nice lead string synth and popular bassline that permeated lots of dance records of the time by New Order, Dead of Alive and even Divine. I discovered it as it was played at a club I regularly attended. Gary Numan produced it and, ... See full review

Cornbread Red is a non-LP B-side. It's a relatively simple fiddle-laden (complete with solo) country song that has twang in the vocals. It's played in a serious manor. Seems like they wrote it quickly and it's not their best B-side - but it's Ween and ... See full review

Pop song, hooky and melodic and very easy to swallow. He's got a pleasurable voice. This is NOT hip-hop - this is modern Top 40/radio friendly and chill. For people who like "safe music" that's clean and relatively easy listening - not challenging or ... See full review

What exactly is the problem - lining it up? Is the pressing low levels - or pressed off or funny? Does it sound OK - please explain. Thanks.

Put the A-side on it's - but don't overlook the b-sides as they work great in the mix and aren't as dated or known as "Observing..."

I can attest that the audio on the boot is not very good. When I was young I didn't notice this much but I rarely played this copy as I had a later pressing too. I mostly bought it for the artwork, knowing it was a boot.

PRESS IT UP! Longtime fans who still love vinyl - want to own and want to spend a reasonable amount on it. -Maybe make a public statement about a future release date. Thanks Richard! Fans want a proper release - even if a short run.

RDJames just dropped Vidd in his Red Bull set -- yes this does have some of his vibes - Big ups J Saul Kane for keeping it real...and beyond real.

Solid raunchy underground tune with gay tinge going on. But works in all environments underground. Make love don't fight - I wanna f*#k tonight. Bleepy Baby Wants To Ride melody bleeps. I like the old skool vibes of this '88 recording.

Not a hit but fun and works well in the mix -- has a vintage sound and stands up in a warehouse environment.

This is a show vinyl for the DJ for LIVE GIGS. In this particular case, somebody pressed up a bootleg of the show vinyl with a full-on picture sleeve and labels, etc. As a big fan and a vinyl DJ and turntablist, I bought it on sight when I saw it - ... See full review

Solid ambient dub type gem "Harmonic" on B.1 is a winner as stated in other reviews. I personally was drawn in by the Static Shield Bag the record is housed in. Love that. This is a record that captures a moment in time (90's electronic) where people ... See full review

A UK hardcore punky version of Bizarre Inc.'s I'm Gonna Get You - a novelty record. Funny artwork ripping off Altern 8 and changes in the label etc. make for a strange release that I never saw until someone referenced it years after it's release. Fun.

Always loved this record but could never find it back in the day. Resorted to that Dance Classic DC001 record with yellow label with Narobi on the flip...that's still the only copy I own. Great tune that adds a little bit more as it progresses.

Mesmerizing tribal rhythms, patterns and syncopation - love this album. Absolutely has a signature Mark Ernestus sound but with different drum (and other) textures. Turn it up and get lost. A perfect combination of his sound and acoustic and even vocal.

Came out around when Zinc's 138 Trek dropped - A-side works well in the mix with breaky jams of that nature.- chill breaks vibe - not over the top.

There must be more than 50 of the original pressing. People clicking they own it may easily be mistaken on which one they own - as the original and reissue pressings look alike on the surface (they just have different versions of that tune and a slight ... See full review

Seems like the number of beats in each version is parenthetically part of each track title - The A-side version being a little longer than the B1 version and thus slightly more beats - the B2 version is much shorter and has 378 beats ;)

Tommy Musto producing some early house with full-on DIVA vocals from Yvonne Turner. Dated sound in a good way. Diva vocals in a raw proper way. I believe this is a little under rated - and so are the records Yvonne Turner is involved with.

Love this record. Classy production a level above many at the time. Light Years rolls out with a credible sound that others often failed to achieve. Sea is a solid B-side - as good as A-side - it's a bouncy smooth tune that I could see LTJ being jealous ... See full review

Trying to figure this out, too. There were Trace/Ed Rush releases on Lucky Spin but... I assume someone who got wrong information years ago is pushing their wrong info and it's spinning out of control.

Got a copy with the AA label on both sides of the record - otherwise, it's the same as the regular release with A side and AA side pressed (but with the AA side label on both sides).

A combination hardcore rave tune made up of many key parts and riffs and keys from a bunch of classic tunes of the time. Big in it's own right - this is a CLASSIC slab of rave techno/breakbeat hardcore.

Ridiculous early hardcore rave - hoovers galore on A-side. Crazy B-side "Energy" (?). The kind of raw, rule-breaking warehouse music I was seeking at the time. This particular record went next level - too much so on the flipside - but it didn't matter. ... See full review

A1 is a banger breakbeat jungle tekno choon "ooh I'm in heaven, baby" This was when things sped up to past 145 BPM and were extra fast compared to early '92. A2 busts out some Landlord stabs and a nice hallow bass. Both B-side tunes are more manic and ... See full review
