  5. Just finished this book got it on iBooks Fantastic book that captures the feel of what it was like to be part of the "scene" in the 70's As I left the scene in 1980 only to come back in 2002 It fills in the missing years for me Thanks to Stuart and all of the collectors and DJ's that have kept the scene alive and kicking. Wether it's discovering new gems playing rare sounds or blasting out good old classics long may this true under ground scene survive Speedy spikeeee
