Unbelievable! - Madchester Hits Disc 1

I am not always fond of compilation discs that try to encapsulate era's for us - I am usually to be found creating my own. This one comes pretty close to capturing what we all loved from that bygone period. Although there are a few inclusions that puzzle me - it must be recalled that I was in Southern California for this whole period of time and didn't hear all the music at the time it came out. But some artists like Adamsci and The Shamen I have never heard of before this (or since) and I puzzle at the sight of 'How Soon Is Now?' (although a sentimental favorite) which precludes most of these tracks by at least 5 years. I have in here somewhere, amongst my mess, a Madchester collection chosen by Bez from the Happy Mondays that is even better. Until then put this one on and play it loud - no 'E' required to have fun. There are greats from the Mondays, Stereo MC's, James and the Inspiral Carpets here though.
