You can't always get what you want!
on 11 February 2014
You can't always get what you want...! This is the phrase, reiterated by The Rolling Stones, that springs to mind when reveiwing this box set album. The packaging is fantastic, and I like the artwork too - no complaints there.
My disappointment is one that I'm sure Terry Farley can relate to. In the sleeve notes Farley himself expresses his frustration with the cul-de-sacs that he found himself in when trying to contact respective artists, or management, or label bosses. Some were no more, either passed away, moved on to different things or just had no contact number or address whatsoever. This is a great shame, because it seems very clear that with all of Farley's chosen tracks, this 5CD would've been far more consistent & a more comprehensive example of the quality Acid & Deep House music of the era.
This is not to say that the tunes on this set are bad - absolutely not. There are some great tunes, some favourites, some forgotten gems & some timeless tracks - big names on the scene too. It's just that, one can't help feeling that there are more fillers than one would've expected from such a venture. This is the only reason for the 4 stars instead of the 5.
Good on him for doing this though. REWIND!
