Our product to treat is a regular product. There is not the imitation. From Japan by the surface mail because is sent out, take it until arrival as 7-14 day. Thank you for you seeing it.
In a residency which spanned 84 sets, 8000 records and 1,992,600 beats, Paul Oakenfold cemented both his position as this country's most popular DJ and Cream's as its foremost club. Making the Courtyard area of Liverpool's Nation venue his own, he attracted a weekly crowd which became notorious for its zealous devotion, and was arguably the first British jock to stamp his mark on a club in the manner of American DJ Junior Vasquez at New York's Sound Factory. This double album boasts 28 of the tracks which made Oakenfold's time at Cream so unforgettable, moving smoothly from shiny, melodic house to harder-edged, driving trance beats. Regular favourites such as Underworld's "Dark And Long" and CJ Bolland's "The Prophet" are mixed in the seamless fashion for which the man has become known, and the inclusion of live crowd noise lends the collection a rare immediacy. --Ed Potton

Every tune on this CD has gone down in history. Each is now an anthem thanks to it.
CD1 has tracks such as Y-Traxx 'Mystery Land, Underworld 'Dark n' Long', Three n One 'Sin City and ends with the legendary 'Prophet' by CJ Bolland... Class...
CD2, for me, is perfection... It captures the essence of Cream, the Courtyard, the crowd and the DJ. Oakeys mixing is seamless and smooth... Some mixes are drawn out while others not so, but it all works beautifully. The highlights of this CD for me is Stoneproof 'Everythings not You', Groovezone 'Eisbaer' and Tekara 'Breathe in You'. All masterpieces of trance/prog house.
This CD is a must own. Even if you dont like trance. Its a moment in time. A legendary residency. A legendary club and crowd. I'm sure it will still be in my cars CD player for another 12 years... and beyond...
