Yep! This was the Holy Grail to Hardcore & I wouldn't go anywhere without this blasting in my ears when I was on a mission . . . . . . Rivet 003 is a "must have" to have in your collection if you were an Old Skooler from back in the day - not many floating around on Vinyl now!

A classic piece of history caught on cd from the Reinforced Records Camp. I rate the label more than any other If anyone can say they created Darkside Hardcore 4 hero can. This is an Awesome CD that caught the mood at the time. I will not go into every track there all good Doc scott and Kieth Sucklings track Get Busy Cru is the stand out one for me it would of been nice to see 2 more tracks on here one being Derranged and the other being In The Shadows by 4 Hero. They had some of the best producers on the label from Nebula to Nookie Rufige Cru and Doc Scott plus many more.This is a must for any collectors out there.
