StatisticsHave: 295Want: 1128Jesus.. would someone pay the sample clearance and repress this thing already!

I remember buying my copy from Lucky Spin on the Kings Road, set at the back of some sort of clothes shop. I agree with most, its head and shoulders above the remix with the cleared sample and one of the best from 93. Now I wish I bought a second copy!!

black coffe
every old skool rave collectors dream, in the serious collectors box. always like the original funny enough, by the S.O.S. Band.this is right at the top as one of the best old skool 93 tunes.

Beautiful tune worth every penny because it will still sound fresh in years time

the Finest illusion original mix will always be the version for me such a great intro and first break such a great tune a total anthem !!! but the recording / eq / pressing as Stuck_in_1992 says just doesn't do it any justice .

Classic breakbeat hardcore at its 'finest' ***

just had a look the 4 track boot has shot up to £40 i paid £20 for mine twice the price in a year blimey

artrecs just had a look the 4 track boot has shot up to £40 i paid £20 for mine twice the price in a year blimmy In one year, it's gone up like a rocket

If your just a dj & want a cheeper copy to play out or mix with try - up your bum / code he 001 // Its a realy good 4 track white boot ep, with orig mix of this banger plus - ecology - time to make the floor burn - d.s.k.f.] top track from [new science e.p./ & acen - trip to the moon part 4 [10" version.. To buy all thos 12" on there would be well over £200's. More like £400 or £500 now with the insane resent price rise in jungle & breakbeat hardcore.

Original was so raw. It took a little over a year for it to reach us. When it hit it was keyspot.I heard ways back that there was a law suit (samples) that pressed them to do the alternate version of finest illusion (substantiated?). Not sure if that's true or not, but why would it get changed otherwise? Both versions are great, sure, but the original is the original and was the big first experience in the face, and is super raw. 92 / 93 jungle is it, and maybe 94. But 92 / 93, it was true origin.

Steve Gurley wrote and produced this tune himself, mixing the accapella of The Finest live over the finished instrumental. Rob Playford wanted them to release this under a new artist name, they chose Foul Play Productions, which didn't hide their identity too well.

Probably the most well known Northampton tune I was on mushrooms for a month during the release of this and Northampton general could tell you something to make you wet your pants laughing blinding tunes! 5/5 Ater this Foul play moved to London to record with the big boys @ moving shadow but didn't ever get back to their roots, thanks Rob ya ruined their style.

good tune this

Not that this tune really needs any introduction. The original promo that did the rounds during the summer of 1993 remains a hardcore classic - it was everywhere, having been cained by the likes of London's Kool FM, Don FM and Pulse. Foul Play put out a 'legit' version of Finest Illusion later that year, but its the ruffness and energy of the original with its unmistakeable chipmunk SOS Band vocals that is its overriding quality. The flip side often gets overlooked, however Screwface with its tough b-lines, stabs and repeated title vocal-line is also an exceptional tune.

Probaby the most elusive 1993 'ardkore tune ever and the most expensive on ebay! Its so elusive and expensive that I don't have a copy myself. The title track, Finest Illusion is a super lo-fi "happyhardcore" track that has a hissy amen break, a mad hands in the air breakdown backed by bass, full on chipmonk vocals, rising and falling sine wave bass, and excellent edits. While the sound quality is piss poor its clear that the composition is solid and well thought out. Its my guess that it was made on an Amiga computer or some other kind of low tech set up. The flip side "Screw Face" sounds like it was done in a professional studio as it sounds fairly crisp and clean in comparison. While it sounds polished, the composition bores me as its not all that inspiring. The myth surrounding this tune is that it was not widely released because the owners of the chipmonks, the SOS Band caught wind of this tune and went after Moving Shadow. I'm not sure how true this is because there were many 'ardkore tunes that sampled SOS Band's "The Finest" and theres no drama surrounding those releases that I'm aware of. Perhaps Moving Shadow was simply embarrased of this tune because it came out during a phase when everything had to be serious, dark, and gangster. Which ever the case, unless Vinyl Connection does a proper repress of this, or if someone gives me a copy, the closest thing I'll get to it is a CDR which stinks.
