Risky, no just quality!!

Feel the piano, hands in the air people.
"Have you you yeah?"
Nothing risky about posting this.
"I'll try to make it as brief as possible".
"Tonight it's party time"

FPI Project - Risky

Cheese or disco perfection?

I'm really putting my neck on the line with this one.
However, I simply love this track, a true PCC - disco perfection!!
36 years old it still sound amazing.
Balearic in the extreme, but don't you love it??

Baccara - Yes Sir, I Can Boogie

Won't Let You Go!!

Always loved this track, beautiful vocals from the delightful Marina, a big Sasha number back int'day in 1991.
It's simply gorgeous.

Less is more!!

When I originally set up this blog over 4 years ago, the intention was to a create an interactive forum, where music was exchanged and clubbing experiences were relayed very much in a 2 way communication.
This was very much the case in the first two to three years, but of recent comments and interaction have become so few and scarce, that there doesn't seem a great deal of point in me putting in lots of effort to create posts with huge long commentaries and explanations of the historical origins etc.
Going forward I will still post great PCCs, but I will limit the amount of time I spend into putting the commentary text together and hence posts will be more about the tracks as opposed to an explanation of the standing and why they are PCCs.
As I've always stated the PCC blog was set up as "your blog" where we would post tracks to your liking and take in suggestions to post (as long as they were worthy of PCC status). This is still the case, so if you have any suggestions or feedback to any of the above, then let me know, either direct by email to pureclubclassics@live.co.uk or by leaving comments direct on the blog.
Right back to the music.
Here's a corking tune, I loved some of the stuff Tin Tin Out did. Love the Sweet Tee (pictured) rapping in this also.
Quality.

Hardcore - in the house!!! Aaagh!!!

No this is a one off and a probably never to be repeated action.
Hardcore - on the PCC blog, well I never imagined it either.
As you are probably aware when the original rave scene split right down the middle, this happened in about 1991 and 1992 "Up North", but a lot earlier "down Sarf".
That being the original rave scene split and went down two very different paths, that being the following;
1) The dressed up house clubs, epitomised by the likes of Back to Basics, Hacienda, Hard Times, Renaissance, later Cream and Love To Be etc etc
2) The hardcore rave scene which was about 140bpm plus and was typified by places like Doncaster Warehouse and the more overground legal outdoor raves.
I very firmly chose the dressed up house clubs although I had friends who chose the other scene and they'd often try to invite me along, which I'd frequently turn down.
However, I did try Doncaster Warehouse with them once and had a great night although I can firmly say it wasn't my scene and there were certainly some strange individuals in there.
Each to their own however.
One track which was frequently played at those sort of clubs was this one.
Hardcore in every essence, but it was a track which I always loved.
It is just so instant and so energetic.
When that riff kicks in, it's just a huge "rushing" moment.
I never thought I'd see the day when Hardcore was posted on the PCC blog, but as always only the very best tracks get posted and this one is certainly top notch.
Enjoy!!!
P.S. Compnded (is not spelling mistake, the track of the title is spelt the "E" missing. How ironic!!)
