Goldie must have known he had done something special when he made his masterpiece because he gave it the perfect tittle. Timeless is the sort of album that transcends genres, eras and scenes. A quarter of a century after it was first written it still has the same impact that it did back then. The man himself as gone on to become a genuine national treasure with appearances in Eastenders, conducting orchestras, making documentaries for Sky Arts and much more. But it will surely always this record that remains his greatest piece of work.
Goldie's incredible debut album Timeless celebrated its 25th anniversary last autumn, so to celebrate this landmark he's decided to deliver an expanded edition. The original two-disc album, a genuine game-changer that showed the musical potential of the then relatively new musical form of drum & bass, is replicated in full in fully remastered form. Those who are new to the set will be blown away by the 21-minute opener, 'Timeless' (a suite of three tracks including peerless D&B anthem 'Inner City Pressure', as well as other standouts such as weighty jungle workout 'Jah The Seventh Seal' and more soulful numbers 'Angel' and 'You & Me'. Confirmed fans meanwhile will love disc three, where remixes, rarities and unreleased material - mostly from Goldie's personal stash of VIP versions - take centre stage.tracks
