OH MY GOSH! If anyone asks you what the difference between Drum and Bass and Jungle music is, just play them this and they'll understand. This is from Jungles darkest days (and by dark I mean good, not bad!) and completely defines a whole genre in just 1 CD. Randall dropping Pascals P-Funk Era (remix) is one of the highlights, awesome. GQ is on top MCing form, keeping the crowd totally hyped throughout. It evens sounds quite special too, as each DJ plays 3 tunes back to back - and the crowd are just loving it! I used to have an AWOL tape pack and the Kenny Ken tape only had 7 tracks on it because each track got 'rewound' at least twice, thats what sort of club AWOL was. Unbeatable.

Simply one of THE classic sets in the genre. The Kenny Ken bit does it for me, but this CD is truly all killer, no filler. As one reviewer points out, the crowd noise is recorded in addition to the music, but this only adds to the experience and the horns soon become like old friends! Highly recommended.

what can be said about this album?, if you are into jungle, breakbeat or hardcore this live albim cannot be beaten. right from the beginning with the horns and whistles in the background you are there, in the ministry, in the dark and probably a bit nervous!! you really get a flavour for the whole genre from this album and if anyone ever asks "so what is jungle" play them this cd and 'dark up the place!'one thing, those horns and whistles are constant the whole way through, but don't fret, get into 'em you'll find they make the experience so much better!!
