A collection London sound system legends of sorts, taken from the Front Line catalog and beyond. The fold-out inlay includes a directory of London sound systems (somebody went to a lot of work putting that together...perhaps Sir Richard Branson did it in his spare time?) A CD that you can listen to all the way through.

what i mean is, is there anything special here? are there even some previously unheard combinations of tunes, eg: rare dub versions or dj versions following a well known vocal?

I've had a review CDR and finished copy a few weeks now.
The usual stuff repackaged in another way IMHO.
Not knocking the quality of the music but the same old tracks again.
