Chart positions

This show was 89th in the global old school chart.

Once upon a time, in a London far away, djs played a mix of funk & soul, hip hop & rap called "rare groove".

Strictly for the cogniscenti, supported by a select few clubs & sound-systems such as the Wag & Shake n' Fingerpop, it existed far from the mainstream - this was music heard nowhere else.

Good mixtapes were much-cherished & deeply inspirational.

One such C90 was "Harley Sounds", made by Dominic Weaver [thanks Paul!] in a flat on Harley Street in 1988/9.
We played it to death, to the extent that our copy is now unlistenable.

So, as a tribute to those halycon days, we've attempted to faithfully recreate it, trying to adhere as close as can be to our battered original.

We hope you enjoy - please REPOST!!!

Bloody stupendous old school classics, beautifully put together.


We have to thank one Dominic Weaver for that.
