    Was wondering why this is called the Century FM set. I have this mix but quality is not brilliant. Has it been broadcast on century recently or something.

    Question:

    I have a few questions regarding this set and recording, which is an absolute stunning and atmospheric piece of musical and club history.

    Does anybody know the story of the recording. Who has made it? And how? It seems evident that it is made on two C90 cassettes. But the quality also suggests that it is not made on just a portable battery powered deck on the middle of the floor. But then how?


    Was it originally broadcasted on the radio back then? And was the recording made with broadcasting in mind?


    What is (was) Century FM?


    Any clues in this respect are very welcome. Has this recording been discussed in detail on other forums?

    As far as I know Century FM is\was a Manchester based radio station. They broadcast this recording on NYE 1999, I would imagine they used the original DAT recording of the night. Someone recorded it and encoded an mp3 of around 3 hours in length (172 mins if irc). Others (including myself) then split this mp3 into different parts to put onto tapes or cd's... this will prob be one of the copies you ended up with.

    Has anyone got an MP3 made directly from the original DAT? Mine is the radio MP3 copy.

    I don't thinks so... not as far as I know anyway. To be fair the radio mp3 is top quality and there is only one brief radio jingle if irc...

    Just before Carly Simon iirc

    This is possibly THE best set I've ever heard, in terms of sound quality, tunes & crowd reaction... essential.... & to think it's coming up to its 20th anniversary !

    I've been wondering about this mix for a while. I ripped it back in 2003 from an old peer-to-peer file sharing site. As I recall it has one radio ident over the mix about half way through. The quality is very good, very unusual for back in the day and the fact that it's in one piece (2h 52m) is very unusual. Century FM was a commercial station back in the late 90's (it launched in 1998), so I'm not sure why they would have had DAT recordings of a club night that happened before they did.

    I'm also skeptical that this is an original due to the tune selection and standard of mixing. I went the Hac most Fridays in 1989, especially through those summer months and don't recall a set this like this. True Parky's mixing was flawless even back then but this is just a little too good, like it was done on CDs. The set list runs more like a "back to the old tunes" night. My memory is that they played a lot more obscure tunes between the hands in the air tunes and this mix seem like floor filler after floor filler. Also, they tended to keep just an illusion to the last tune - not mid-way through the night.

    I also know this set made it into Hooky's book but I'm not too sure if that makes it any more true it's an original.

    Interested to hear what you think...
