The Acid Jazz 25th Anniversary Box Set



Acid Jazz, the brainchild of Piller and Peterson, was born in 1987 and immediately hit a chord in the UK by appealing to a cross section of serious fans - from old school Jazzers, obsessive Jazz-Funkers, passionate Soulboys, sharp-dressed Mods, nodding Hip-Hoppers and even laid back Dreads.
      
Before long the tentacles of the Acid Jazz movement were spreading throughout the world and what began as a bedroom label between two mates soon became a mecca for various tribes who had become disenfranchised from other scenes.

From international breakthrough successes like the Brand New Heavies, Jamiroquai and the Totally Wired series, Acid Jazz cemented it’s image as one of the most iconic and unique UK record labels of the last 3 decades.
     
Harmless Records in conjunction with BBC Worldwide and Acid Jazz have packaged this beautiful collectors box set featuring:

4 x Audio CD’s.
1 x music video DVD (including promo videos and interviews).
1 24 page book, containing photographs and sleeve-art throughout the last 25 years.
1seven inch bonus vinyl single.
   
Every traditional Acid Jazz artist worth their salt feature throughout (other than Corduroy, mysteriously); Mother Earth, Sandals,Night Trains, Snowboy, JTQ, Galliano, The Young Disciples, Humble Souls and countless others. As well as new ones,The Third Degree, Janice Graham Band  and Men Of North Country. Plus ‘friends’ of the label who released material through AJ at various times, Primal Scream, Paul Weller. And, incredibly, records that influenced the label, Chicago, Erma Franklin, Small Faces and loads more. Check them out....
