I have to say this is one of the rare few that have hit the spot. Peter Hook's genuine experience of the time gives it real credibility and injects a bag of fun into the music. This is not one of those mixes that uses newer; over produced versions of the tracks or slips in a later re-mix here and there. On top of this, the occasional 'live' track brings home the atmosphere of the time and only adds to the tune.
One for the car this one. On your own, no shame, just a big smiley face
However, I've found the mp3 version of the album to be at low volume and sounds far worse that other mp3s on my mobile phone (sound a bit better on laptop). Maybe some/all tracks had to be mastered from vinyl but bass enhancement is essential there's a loss of detail.
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....
It is the law that Voodoo Ray is on such collections. Peter Hook couldn't hold back and shot his bolt on Track 02. Shame it's not the original.
Elsewhere there are some classic tracks here, but it's a shame they couldn't be allowed to stand alone. The mixing is clumpy and ham-handed and the tracks are badly ordered. Alarm bells should have rang when I noticed that Hook was mixing. Cash saved at the expense of quality.
Just for the record I was a regular at the Hacienda and I can't remember Higher State of Consciousness being played once. Other tracks here can not be classed as Acid House either. I've been done!
This collection is eBay bound.
