ex:el 'deluxe' edition

Bought this as it ex:el was the first record I ever bought and IMO the best 808 ever done, however I've got a gripe with CD2, it says they are 'rare/unreleased' editions of tracks, but I reckon I already have all of them and they aren't all that 'rare' or 'unreleased': In Yer Face (Facially yours mi...

Not sure if I fancy this at all. Ferry Corsten and his ilk represent all that I hate about music. :x . Hopefully it can't be that bad if it has a bit of The State in it. :)

Do I sound like an old fart?

Cheers Graham! By the way I wasn't having a go there or trying to be a tw@t, it's just that that period of time is when I first got really into 808 State in a big way, and for ages and ages I remember waiting and waiting for a new release. In those days, before the interweb etc., it was much harder ...

808 in the 90s.

I finally got round to downloading some of the Sunset radio shows the other day... brilliant, lots of those tunes brought back loads of happy memories. M/cr must have been some place to be in the 90s, with all the bands, and the 808 DJs presenting a radio show every week! Up here we never had a show...

I have the same make Graham mentioned. Mines are Grado Labs 125s, they're excellent, really clear but a bit fidgety at first. My brother brought them back from the States as a present last year. They cost a flaming fortune (around 200 quid I think) but are worth it if you're going to use em a lot. D...
