Just gets better at this point. Volume 8 picks up right where 7 left off.
Stunning range of tracks and that HOUSE word creeps in here too, although only for 1 track (phew!) - The original "Love Can't Turn Around" by Farley Jackmaster Funk.
Another double from Man 2 Man here, their cover of "These Boots are Made For Walking" with Jessica Williams and the risky "I Need A Man" (Heheheh - remember coming back from Durban with the cassette playing in the car and being asked when this song came on "You certainly have some underground music don't you?").
Fab tracks from Body Heat, Micheal Bow, Jamie Dean, Grant Millar, Chip Chip, Mozzart (YAY!), Jacky Dean Foundation, Joe Yellow, Albert One, Triple G, Linda Jo Rizzo, Fred Ventura & Jock Hattle. Fantasy Ten is in there with an OFF-ish (that is sounding like OFF) song called "Big Bang" which was one of the songs on the forefront of the "New Beat" movement.
Another fab mix by Andrew Wood with Lee Selsick doing another brill cover of our High Energy dude (this time with different specs!). A Good compilation true to the genre.
I remember seeing TV Commercials for this release back in 1987. Interesting to note at this point the South African music giant "World Of Music" put its name behind our compilation. This would be the major source and influence for the next few compilations.
