Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hacienda Acid House Classics (Audio CD)
OK, so I have to admit that I'm a huge fan of acid house and so this bargain priced 2 CD set of tunes looked worth a punt.
It's mixed by Peter Hook by the way, and as with the other "Hacienda Classics" CD features some talking over the start and end of each CD. Why on earth Mr Hook (if that's whose voice it is) feels that they're SO important as to do this is beyond me. More than a little egotistical if you ask me. And utterly pointless - I can't imagine anyone buying this CD hasn't heard of the Hacienda....
Anyway, once past the daft intro voice over, here comes the music.
Overall production seems good, the CDs sound crisp and punchy and the mixing is, in the main good. There are couple of odd transitions though - obviously Mr Hook fancies himself as a bit of a DJ.
The music is good though - nice to hear some old tracks. Yes, "Higher State" is a bit of a classic too, but for me it's been played to death and jars with the early acid tracks here.
There are better acid house compilations out there, but this is an OK compilation at a decent price....
