A new CD compilation Hacienda Classics is delivered by Peter Hook, bassist from New Order, who shared a founding hand in The Hacienda and remembers the good old days:
The Hacienda was built on blood, sweat and tears… I think it's safe to say we made every mistake in the book, that said it was the most magical time and I wouldn't change any of it. I have so many special memories from those days, the way the DJs would select the tunes especially for the club, I remember Sasha's first set, the atmosphere was electric and he played the best set of his life, the music was perfect as was the crowd, when we left you just knew you'd been a spectator of something very special indeed
To mirror The Hacienda’s genre bending music policy as well as provide a cross section of the tracks that created The Hacienda and formed the foundations of UK, even global clubbing as we know it, Hooky has compiled three CD's of definitive Hacienda classics bringing together elements of rare groove, soul hip hop, hip house, house and indie-dance painting a true picture of the highest moments of The Hacienda. Highlights and Hacienda moments from the album include New Order Confusion, Happy Mondays Step On, Orbital Belfast, Candi Staton You Got The Love, and more
