V/A - Trance Europe Express (Import 2 CD / 1993)

A quick request for a desperate viewer/reader/blog friend! A while back I began to post the now infamous UK Volume Series that began back in 1990. This release is from the same group, just taking another direction in music that was sweeping over rave chill-rooms everywhere. This 2 CD set came out between the release of UK Vol. 7 and UK Vol. 8. It's a who's who of classic and upcoming new artists with skills that make you get all 'Soma' like. I really don't need to explain much more, but if you weren't raving at that time, you probably missed out on some of the most brilliant ambient tracks of the time. Here is more information regarding the release. All recordings & art are from my compilation. The tray art is a bit messed up due to my 'folded' copy, but I tried to even it out...sort of. OK...thanks for the request. I'm dropping this into the blog now, close to midnight...in case you need that feel! Enjoy!

    This was a great series. Each volume came out in a 4xLP format, which was housed inside its own bag and included a full booklet. TEX 4 was my favorite!

    Thank you as always!!!

    1. I have an 4 LP set too. I think it was for the Berlin Unwrapped version. The booklet and that heavy vinyl bag were something! Thanks F.H.

    2. BTW, thanks for those links. I still own all the original series (w/ books) on CD, so I'm good. Cool to share it? LMK.

    not sure if you found a good replacement for EBM/GOTH yet but I just stumbled upon this one. It's one of those general sites but has a very detailed search function for Goth, Darkwave, Industrial, etc.:
