This Record Is Quite Nice, Actually: 9

Ragga Twins: Spliffhead (Remix) (Shut Up And Dance, 1990)
Back in the old days when people really wanted to spend actual cash on actual records, Shut Up And Dance and Ragga Twins were properly massive. I remember when this came out - the shop I worked in simply could not order enough to cope with the demand. We would easily sell 200 copies over a weekend, people would come in with half-smoked joints in their mouths and count out every penny they had in their pockets so they could own a copy because it was one of those records that was so unutterably perfect that it made every other record on the shelves seem sort of hilariously pointless. A great compilation of their stuff is out in June...
