Definitive 2CD set, includes 52-page booklet with original text, exclusive photos and artist interviews. Although there have been a lot of Chicago Acid comps over the years, this one seems definitive and euphorically sequenced beyond belief! "Soul Jazz Records are releasing this double CD/ double vinyl vol 1/ double vinyl vol 2 which tells the story of the evolution of house and acid in Chicago and how a number of creative artists from the city developed a sound that came to influence the world. The album features all the major artists from the city -- from the originators like Marshall Jefferson, DJ Pierre, Lil Louis, Adonis to second wave artists like Cajmere and Roy Davis Jnr -- artists who continue to make Chicago a unique musical environment today. The album traces how the sound developed as clubs like Ron Hardy's legendary 'Music Box' and Frankie Knuckles 'Warehouse' put Chicago on the map along with radio shows from the Hot Mix Five. The album features all-time classic tracks such as Phuture's 'Acid Trax' and Sleezy D's 'I've Lost Control' alongside many rare and experimental tracks such as Lil Louis's 'Video Clash' and Marshall Jefferson's 'Go Wild Rhythm Tracks'. With sleevenotes by Tim Lawrence (who wrote Love Saves The Day), exclusive photos and interviews with Marshall Jefferson, Adonis, Tyree and more, the album shows how Chicago's unique culture and artists led to some of the most important music ever. The album comes in double-CD format and super-loud volume 1 and volume 2 double-LP format."
