Graeme Park 1990.02.01 @ Haçienda Manchester

What made some of these nights was the crowd, the whistles, the hand claps, chatting to complete strangers who soon became your raving mates... everyone happy and riding the same wave, sharing a moment that to be honest became addictive.  1990 was a good year in the Haçienda for a punter, the music was still fresh with variation in style and those baselines just filled the place as if they were written purely to be played there.  As the tracks in this set drop to the breaks or baselines, close your eyes, turn up the stereo and listen to the crowd... we were there and so now can you!! Enjoy

This photo by photographer Ian Tilton in 1987 fully captures the atmosphere and inhibition of the crowd - ordinary kids dancing with abandon on the podium in the middle of the Haçienda dance floor. A wonderful image, more so as I danced in between this and the stage!
