Graeme Park - We Love The Haçienda

Given away with Ministry Magazine's May 2002 issue, I did have the chance to go to the Haçienda once but it would have meant sneaking in as I didn't have a ticket, my mate did but I was too scared & stopped in the pub in Sheffield instead! In 1986, it became one of the first clubs outside the US to start playing house music, with DJs Mike Pickering and Little Martin (later with Graeme Park) hosting the Nude night on Fridays. This night quickly became legendary, and helped to turn around the reputation and fortunes of the Haçienda, which went from making a consistent loss to being full every night of the week by early 1987.This 45 minute mix does contain some classic & obscure old school tracks (it isn't the same Stardust that contained Thomas Bangalter and Alan Braxe though!), please note that this mix is not officially endorsed by the Haçienda club (as stated on the CD's back cover!)

1 Stardust - Love Will Find A Way (5:17)
2 Blaze - Whatcha Gonna Do (5:23)
3 Jomanda - Driftin' (5:30)
4 Cultural Vibe - Ma Foom Bey (4:38)
5 Soft House Company - What You Need (4:47)
6 Criminal Element Orchestra - Put The Needle On The Record (Original) (5:30)

8 Rhythim Is Rhythim - Nude Photo (7:52)
