The title sounds like some schlocky 80s thriller, but the set's a massive collection of tracks from some of the greatest years of house music – that late 80s explosion of the acid scene in Chicago, which really led to the global circulation of house sounds at so many different levels! This 5CD package does a great job of tracking
the growth and evolution of the music during the late 80s and early 90s – with strong roots in the Chicago scene, then a move to show the range of approaches that broke big on the New York scene as well. The set's thankfully free of the trashy acid house that hit the charts in Europe – and really mostly features better underground work from the indie labels – a total of 58 tracks that includes work from Marshell Jefferson, Liz Torres, Rickster, Mario Reyes, Romance, Paris Brightledge, Master C&J, Steve Poindexter, Nexus 6, Frankie Knuckles, House People, Blake Baxter, Bobby Konders, Joe Smooth, Sterling Voic, Chip E, Mark Imperial, and many others. 5CDs, a special book, and full 12" mixes throughout!
