Mike Pickering 1991.07 @ Haçienda Manchester Shine

I was listening to this one today whilst cooking and thought as I haven't had a Mike Pickering set for a while on Blog51 That I would list this.  The track list alone is excellent, possibly July Possibly August.  Often I get asked if I preferred the Saturday night or the Friday night?  If I was totally hoest I would say the Nude nights when it was both Park and Pickering but Saturday nights were our night as I loved the vocal house that Parky played but having said this, this set is a fine example of why we did both a Friday and a Saturday in 1991 if we could.  To be more exact it would have been a Wednesday, Friday and a Saturday!  Friday's weren't as glitzy, more dress down and sweat affairs.  

This set contains a few of my favourites too, Optik's 'The Chance' needs to be in everyones' vinyl collection, a dream to blend in and out behind a vocal to build a set, Yolanda's excellent 'Living for the Night', and many of us did, cheesy I know but totally true,  Arthur Baker's Let There be Love' and the wicked 'A Roller Skating Jam Called Saturday's' by De La Soul to name a few.

Feel free to download and experience a Friday 'Shine' night at the Hacçienda
