• a boy's own odyssey: acid house scrapes & capers  (double CD, £5.75)

    "Junior Boys Own; a label that not only defined what British dance music actually sounded like but also what it should sound like. These are not just great records, or even great house records, but they evoke something that is embedded in British culture" - Bill Brewster. "A label that looked like it sounded and sounded like it looked" - Ben Turner. An era-defining collection from artists that have become the backbone of what we now know as dance music and club culture. CD1 travels from the Balearic optimism of Boca Juniors, Jah Wobble and Paradiso to the Boy's Own remixes of indie/dance anthems from Primal Scream, James, The Farm and the Happy Mondays. CD2 is an adventure into the early era of UK house and acid house, focusing on the label's highlights: Fire Island, Chemical Brothers, Pete Heller and the anthem of all anthems, 'Born Slippy' by Underworld. Features extensive JBO history sleeve notes from former Muzik editor Ben Turner, plus track by track notes from JBO founders Steve Hall & Terry Farley.
