Brilliant compilation from the best label of the 90's, 26 April 2000
Junior Boys Own is one of the best and most influential record label's in the world from the 1990's and this compilation shows you why. This recording features the label's finest hours and goes beyond that to include not only the tracks that inspired them to set up the label but also famous and groundbreaking remixes by associates of the label.
A quick list of some of the twenty one tracks on the album should convince you of the quality: New Order, Mr Fingers, St Etienne, Primal Scream, The Chemical Brothers, Underworld, Xpress 2, Bjork and the Black Science Orchestra with remixes from Weatherall and Farley and Heller. There is not a single track on here that doesn't inspire or innovate and quite a few are unavailable elsewhere (Underworld's 'Rez' isn't on any of their albums but is possibly their best track).
Awesome and worth buying even if, like me, you've already got many of the tracks on vinyl. It isn't until you hear the music bought together that you realise how good the label is and what a debt we owe them. I can't praise this album highly enough.
