✨✧ VariousSources – The Trax Records Anthology (3CD set) ... CD
Harmless (UK), Late 80s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
An excellent entry in this all-great Sources series – and one that offers up some real treasures from the legendary Trax Records! Trax was an instrumental force in the early years of Chicago house music – and the label may still be the most important document of that underground scene – often the first to spot the best talent in the Windy City, and always ready to capture the best cuts and get them into the clubs! The set looks at all the best elements of Trax – the label's early style of mirroring some of the British grooves that were inspirational to Chicago house, the scene's breakout soul singers once house got going, and its crucial forays into acid styles – which ended up having a huge impact on the UK and European scenes at the end of the 80s. Dancefloor historian Bill Brewster chose the cuts and provided the notes – and the package features 36 well-chosen tracks that include "We're Rocking Down The House" by Adonis, "I've Lost Control (space side)" by Sleezy D, "Children Of The Night" by Kevin Irving, "Farley Knows House" by Farley Jackmaster Funk, "Bad Boy" by Frankie Knuckles, "Move Your Body" by Marshall Lefferson, "Free Yourself" by Virgo, "Spank Spank" by Phuture, "In A Vision" by Virgo Four, "Bird In A Gilded Cage" by Jungle Wonz, "What Is House" by Willie Wonka, "Sensation" by Ron Hardy, "My Space" by Virgo, "Can You Feel It" by Mr Fingers, "Never Want To Lose You" by ME, "I'll Never Let You Go" by William S, "Washing Machine" by Mr Fingers, "Acid Tracks" by Phuture, "Children Of The Night" by Kevin Irving, "Baby Wants To Ride" by Frankie Knuckles, "Pump Up Chicago" by Mr Lee, and "When You Hold Me" by Master C & J.

✨✧ VariousTraxbox – The Trax Records Box Set – The First 75 Complete 12" Single Releases (16CD set) ... CD
Trax/Harmless (UK), Mid/Late 80s. New Copy 16CDs ... Out Of Stock
Easily the greatest collection we've ever seen dedicated to the Chicago house gems of Trax Records – a massive 16CD, 222 track collection that features the complete A and B-sides of the first 75 singles on the label – all remastered here with better sound than ever before! The set's got the main cuts, flipsides, remixes, and even bonus bits too – a really comprehensive run of music that takes us from the stark early days of Chicago house, through the seminal acid years, and even some of the surprisingly soulful gems of later Trax too. There's way too many cuts here to list – but we can say that the set features work by Mr Lee, Pierre's Phantasy Club, Terry Baldwin, Lidell Townsell, Robert Owens, Vincent Lawrence, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Jack Master Dick, Adonis, Virgo, Marshall Jefferson, Boris Badenough, Pleasure Zone, Phuture, Kool Rock Stead, and many others – and it also comes with a 100 page booklet, filled with notes and images – plus a download card too!
