Product Notes

The CD looks at the early Acid Jazz scene through the label's early singles, classic old cuts that filled dance floors, and essential album tracks. This is the original sound of Acid Jazz as defined by Gilles Peterson and Edward Piller. It's aim is to sum up one of the most vibrant club scenes of the late 80s - the one true alternative to the march of house music. As well as early singles by Galliano, the Brand New Heavies and a Man Called Adam (featuring Paul Daily of Leftfield), this compilation also sees the first ever CD release of the rarest Acid Jazz single. The single - King Truman's 'Like a Gun' - was in fact a pseudonym for Paul Weller and his Style Council cohorts, and was withdrawn within days because his record label objected. Only 300 copies escaped and they sell for about $150. This is the first time that Paul has ever allowed it to appear on CD.
