Rough Trade Exclusive with a Bonus DVD called 'Bootleg', a film from the underground LA Surf scene soundtracked by Wildest Dreams. Where do you begin with Harvey Bassett? aka Harvey aka DJ Harvey? He makes grown men weep. The man is a living legend. A walking, talking music maestro. A full blown club legend in the 'old school' sense of the word. His music and his sets are legendary. His mixes are like no one else, blending everything from krautrock to house, hip hop to techno, disco, funk, soul, rock - you name it he can do it. Check the 'Sarcastic Mix' or the 'Black Cock' and you'll know what we mean. The man has serious skills and serious taste. Combine all of that with his obvious love for the California life and you'll end up here. Seems like 'Wildest Dreams' has been burning a hole in his mind for quite some time as the set is truly mind expanding. It's blissed out, reverbed and stacked in analog fuzz. Totally retro but totally now. Taking in everything from The Doors to early Fleetwood Mac, Scott Walker to Steely Dan, Can to Vanilla Fudge, even Tame Impala, Fuzz and The Horrors, this album takes you to a smoke filled, stoned out haze somewhere in L.A. A hedonistic party you won't want to leave. This is the sonic history of the man himself. This is an amazing album. Harvey's legend continues.LP - Comes with CD Version of the album.
