This is a very obscure release by the Swindon based label Drive Music. The highlight is without doubt Perennial Divide's "Worldspread", a version quite different than that on their 1987 EP "Bee Head". Here it is rougher but also more consistent than on the EP. To me this appears like an omitted version that has been abandoned in favor of the one that made it on "Bee Head". Most notably different are the drums or rather the presence of the drums/patterns. overall, the arrangement is tighter, the song has more drive and appears bolder. Also it omits the long intro that is present in the "Bee Head"-version as well as the vocals in the second half after the sensational break. I cannot recommend this song enough to all Perennial Divide fans!Gutlevel featuring Cutman Cash's "Hook-up / Reanimator" sounds like a very early Meat Beat Manifesto experiment that is full of samples and explores exactly the way of heavy-duty-breakbeat they became famous for in their early stage. This however would have to be acknowledged by the artist himself or another very competent person.
