    Yeah, I&#39;ve been noticing this set doing the rounds on various sites.

    Not quite sure why though, it&#39;s all fairly standard stuff. Assumedly, he&#39;s mixed the tracks extremely well?

      This is Mark Pritchard right? I wonder how many of these he bought off Julian... Not slagging off the fella, he&#39;ll freely admit to just going to Julian for his beats and paying out. Probably doing the rounds because to many of his fans, those tracks will be new I guess. We need conduits like Mark to help spread the word&#33;

        I&#39;m sure he probably got a few of those from Far Out honcho Joe Davis - he who has been supplying Brazillian beats to Gilles for over 15 years.

          I wouldn&#39;t be surprised, since Mark has been doing remixes for Joe for several years too...

          Ok, maybe we should stop this mutual info we already know swap session&#33;

            Well he&#39;s playing at least a few of them off comps so I&#39;m wondering how many he&#39;s actually played off OG&#39;s? Again, not a problem - Norman Jay played &#39;Get Thy Bearings&#39; on the main stage at the Big Chill and to hear that drifting across a field to thousands of people was quite special.

              It&#39;s true. I mean these days, folk like Mark or Norman or Dave Holmes can easily obtain the original if they want to: they all must be well connected with dealers and have the funds to afford them, so ultimately what&#39;s the point other than sound quality? Acutally, sound quality is a very big point&#33;

                jesus fackin wept. You can be pretty snobbish somtimes greg.

                so there all known tracks and youve got most of them. well done.

                so he played levres rouges off a comp instead of a 45. big deal.

                it was nice to hear loads of my fave tracks blended together.

                  Just out of curiosity - what would happen if a PRS required club has a DJ play a track off a comp or a bootleg for that matter?

                    I was going to play devil&#39;s advocate and ask how people would react if David Holmes had played that set rather than Mark Pritchard?

                    I don&#39;t much about Troubleman other than the mentions I&#39;ve seen on Bill&#39;s forum and his set at the Chill. But my attitude towards him is similar to Norman Jay. Andy and I were chatting and I said I reckoned he plays things pretty safe, Sir Norman is a perfect party DJ who knows how to work a crowd but every now and then he drops something (relatively) obscure, certainly to the average punter, and that raises him in my estimation. Whereas David Holmes plays sets that are far more leftfield, in those terms, and gets slated. (Norman also gets props for dropping Tyrone Davis&#39;s &#39;Is It Something That I&#39;m Missing...&#39; in the middle of a Soundly Beaten set too.   ).

                        I must admit I do not understand the anti-David Holmes feeling that appears time to time on VV. Everytime I have heard him play I have enjoyed myself. I am not bothered if he&#39;s playing rare stuff or well known stuff, provided it&#39;s good and of quality, I&#39;ll try and dance to it. Standing by the bar going, &quot;Yes I know that one, to common&quot; is not beneficial to a good night out.

                        With regards the Troubleman set, theres a few bits I know and a few I don&#39;t. Looks like a decent set to me. Anybody playing Mulatu is OK by me.

                          Well, we can get too hung up on obscurities and rareties and finding new records, sometimes: often, it means we neglect the bleedin&#39; obvious (but brilliant) tracks that&#39;re in every secondhand bin in the country. How many of the newly dug funky rock cuts REALLY top the likes of Steppenwolf &amp; Santana&#39;s early gear? Case in point, picked up LPs by Martha &amp; The Vandellas and The Pointer Sisters recently, and f*** do they have some funky cuts on &#39;em&#33; Maybe we need reminding how great Joni Mitchell, Donovan, &#39;Flameout&#39; etc can be sometimes, as well as being introduced to stuff we haven&#39;t heard before...which incidentally is a good half that tracklist for me&#33; And good to see Raymond Scott getting a look in on one of these mixes&#33;
