Exclusive Blend Volume 1 / Various
- (Jewel Case Packaging)
- Artist: Various Artists

- Release Date:7/1/2008
2007 reissue of this collection of rare music library recordings.. When this was originally released in 1996, the idea of a compilation of '60s and '70s music library tracks never intended for commercial release seemed a little unusual. However, over a decade later the genre is still popular, vindicated by similar compilations from other labels, and a new wave of dedicated collectors and fans (including a cult following overseas, especially in Japan). Featuring the cream of the KPM Music Library writers including Keith Mansfield, Alan Hawkshaw, Alan Parker and Johnny Pearson, Exclusive Blend Volume 1 sees Blow Up's founder and DJ Paul Tunkin taking US on a journey deep into the library's vaults. From the pounding up-tempo of 'Move, Move, Move' through the Hammond-heavy 'Beat Me 'Til I'm Blue' and 'Rocky Mountain Runabout' (versions of both featuring on the legendary Mohawks 'The Champ' album) to the sitar '60s club sound of 'Delhi Discotheque'. Blow Up.
