now about me & my stock:

D&B SPECIALIST - COLLECTED ALL MAJOR CLASSICS SINCE THE START OF RAVE UPTO PRESENT DAY.
THE MAIN OF MY PERSONAL COLLECTION IS BUKEM & FABIO BASED BUT MY COLLECTION COVERS ALL ASPECTS OF D&B/JUNGLE. LOTS OF RARITIES!!!

CURRENTLY FROM MARCH 2013 I AM HOLDING REGULAR SHOWS ON BRICK LANE RADIO - SHOWCASING MY MIXES OF D&B / JUNGLE TUNES SPANNING RIGHT BACK TO THE EARLY 90s - THE GOLDEN YRS, RIGHT UPTO CURRENT!

WAS A DJ FOR 20 YEARS, NOW 40 SO RETIRED TO THE BEDROOM AS NOW HAVE A WIFE & 4 YR OLD GIRL SO DONT GET THE TIME TO SPEND ON THE 1s & 2s AS MUCH AS I'D LIKE!

I TAKE CARE OF ALL MY RECORDS AND I'M VERY PARTICULAR ABOUT CONDITION, SO WOULD NOT SELL ANYTHING THAT I WOULDN'T EXPECT TO BUY MYSELF. I PRIDE MYSELF ON LISTING THEIR CONDITION FAIRLY - ALTHOUGH I DO HAVE TO SAY THAT DISCOGS "INTERPRETATION OF MINT" IS A BIT STRONG!!

MY VERSION OF MINT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT MAY HAVE HAD 1 OR 2 PLAYS BUT STILL LOOKS LIKE YOU'D JUST BOUGHT IT FROM NEW - OR POSSIBLY UNPLAYED AT ALL.

- THAT SAID, MOST SHOPS THAT SELL D&B COULD MEAN THAT POTENTIALLY IT MAY HAVE BEEN PLAYED SEVERAL TIMES TO A PUNTER BEFORE YOU EVEN CLAPPED EYES ON IT!

BUT PLEASE DON'T WORRY - MY GRADINGS ARE AS PER DISCOGS CONDITIONS

True and echo your comments. Apart from the school bit (I'm 46 now) but I also remember this one. I too hoped to find a CD version but it's a no go

The title track Saxx......for me it could have been much better. It doesn't really go anywhere. Has some nice elements but fails to pack any punches.

Flip it over and it's a different story, these 2 little gems belong on their own title track releases. ... See full review

What a slab of vinyl - both tunes are top notch. sounds crisp even today! BUYERS BEWARE - there are people selling 2004 represses of this and passing off as the original. As the labels are the same there is a key difference (for those that don't know or ... See full review

Rock Baby - What a tune.....so far ahead of its time. As Dinnum says"its aged magnificently"

Nice funk stabs and a militant beat throughout. Overall an interesting little builder as it ... See full review
