2.0 out of 5 stars Warning: These are mix CDs, 15 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Suburban Base Records: The History of Hardcore, Jungle, Drum & Bass: 1991-1997 (Audio CD)
Great collection of tunes (worth five stars) but messed up by being mixed into each other (minus three stars) rather than each standing alone on a compilation. I overlooked that the CDs were mixed when I bought this, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered.

Thanks for pointing this out as I was considering buying this CD but now I won't be.

As a general rule I don't buy mix CDs (unless maybe they are done by a favourite DJ) for the sole reason that I prefer to own the full track, so I hate it when compilations don't specify that the disc is mixed since, by default, I would assume that it isn't and that in parting with my hard earned cash I am paying for the full length versions. In effect I would say this is a mis-description of the product and as such any disappointed unwary purchasers should be entitled to a full refund.

Anyway, it's a shame since an unmixed Suburban Base compilation would have been awesome.

Best wishes - Colin

Many thanks, I thought this selection would be great to fill in the gaps in my 12" collection...but as they're mixed i'll pass...Saved me a few quid and a lot of disappointment. thanks again for the review.

Also glad I read your review - a compilation like this is no good with all the tracks mashed together (and the mixing is probably below par anyway as no name is listed).
The CD version of this release I'll not be bothering with.

If you can track down a copy, "A History Of Hardcore" is a decent collection of hardcore, jungle and drum & bass, with tracks from Suburban Base and Moving Shadow labels.
Released 1995.
It is mixed also, but by jungle legend Kenny Ken. If you're into your old skool I'd recommend it.

Moving Shadow and Suburban Base created two albums called The Joint and the Joint 2 which are unmixed.

Also if you use the Amazon Autorip feature, you get all of the tracks as individual singles and also the mixed versions too.
