The top item was published in DJ Mag in September 1992 and is a short run down of UK releases the journalist recommended that particular week.
From the same issue of DJ Mag is a playlist compiled by Phil Perry who was DJ at Full Circle near London, and one of the records that gets a mention in both items is Blunt Trax Vol 1.
This was a 12 inch that came out on the Tomato label and consisted of 2 tracks - "Head Space" & "Carried Away".
The vinyl on display above is out of my racks at home.
The flip side of it contains the exact same details on the label & cover as what's shown above, which is why I have only needed to take just one photo of it.

The top item is a brief overview of New York house label, NuGroove, which was published in dance music magazine, Mixmag, in 1995. It's just a compact bit of background info and includes a few of their classic tracks as a guide.
Under it is an insert from an album that contains a more substantial list of NuGroove releases, albeit only covering the releases up to 1991. It is also a good reminder of how prolific they were too!
The 2 albums taken from my own collection are both compilations of NuGroove tracks.
The green one is simply titled "A Compilation" and was released in 1991.
The wine one is titled "A Second Compilation" and was released in 1992.
Both LP's are double vinyl packs and came out on the Network label in UK.
