There are a few errors in the track listing:

Track 8 is incorrectly listed as "Express It Thru Dance".

Track 9: Mix title listed as "Pissed Apache (Josh On The Jess)". The correct title is listed above.

The version of Matt Darey's production, 'Naked World' by Shimmer differs greatly from the final version released two years later in 1998. This version was not released on any other format.

The version of 'Hard Times' by Damaged also differs substantially from the final version released under the name Rimbaud.

This is such a fascinating release, and I'd really love to know the story behind it. Tracks 1 to 7 are all edits of tracks DanceNet licensed from Hooj Choons as CD Singles. Tracks 8 and 9 are older Hooj releases from 1992. All top shelf stuff.Where things get interesting, however are the last two tracks. The Matt Darey production 'Naked World' by Shimmer was released as a CDr promo by Hooj in 1998. It was a trancey breaks tune, similar to the work he did under Tekara. The version featured here predates that by two years, and is a straight out vocal trance stormer. It's an epic tune; the kind of trance Darey wouldn't truly embrace for several more years. I could have imagined it becoming a huge track for him. But this version was never featured anywhere else, and what emerged in 1998 was a completely different track. I have no idea what happened to it... And even less ideas about how it ended up on this compilation.Track 11 is also an exclusive - a much earlier version of Rimbaud's Hard Times. It feels a lot more driving than the final release - there's added piano and synth pads, and the whole thing just feels a lot more powerful. Especially Sabrina Johnston's vocals.Most of DanceNet's versions of overseas compilations were just straight up ports, but this is something quite different. Thankful to have it, but would love to know the back story. I've uploaded the Shimmer track to Youtube if anyone's curious.

There were tons of Hooj Choons CD Singles back in the day when i used to do my monday HMV shop
