Classic Trance 50 Volume 3 (2022)

It is Thursday, and it's Trance day. Not an official day, to be fair, but still. To me it's all about Trance, and the mix you are about to listen to, might take over your whole day! And I'm not kidding. It's 5 hours and 14 minutes long! That's a whole lot to take in, but it's not the only mix in this mix series which is that long: they are all extremely long. For me, normally, an hour mix is perfect. If within that hour everything is there, then I'm happy. 5 hours long, that's a long sitting session, but as I'm WFH, I've got a few hours spare. So, let the listening session commence.

Trance is amazing. I'm riding this Trance wave now, and I'm feeling everything Trance related. I'm so happy now, hearing all these Trance mixes, and Johnny Davison's mix fits right in. The length might be a bit longer than expected, but it's worth it. And the thing about this mix is, that there are quite a lot of unknowns in here, or songs I've completely forgotten about. Or versions that I've not seen or heard before. So it's a mix that contains everything you want to hear, if you are as open minded as I am.

The rain is coming down outside, it is cold and miserable, so I'm sitting at home with the heating all the way up, and listening to this mix. And it's glorious. Johnny Davison has selected 50 amazing records, and time does fly by before you know it. You might think that 5 hours and a bit is too damn long, but I would disagree (only on this occasion). Trance should only be played at full length, no stupid radio edits or short edits. Full extended versions, please.

This list has made my wrists go funny. I don't copy-paste but physically type a tracklist, so it's been a very long and arduous task.But I've managed, which is a positive. And I've finished listening to this mix too. All 5 hours and a few additional minutes! 50 tracks.

I feel like I've achieved something! It feels like I need to get an award for achieving such a fantastic achievement. But this isn't the only mix out there. I've already listened to the first and second instalment, but there are plenty more out there! In total, I think, 11 mixes. So if they are 5+ hours long, that's 55+ hours of Trance music. Sweet Lord, a long way to go for me.

I have done it, and I'm glad that I've listened to it. It is yet another wonderful mix with some stunning anthems. And the finest, for me, is 'In Silence', remixed by Txitcarro, and the track is by Randy Katana. A fantastic track, love it. Still a crowd pleaser, in my honest opinion!

What can I say that I haven't said before, in this or previous reviews? It's a big pill to swallow, but if you've got 5+ hours of doing nothing, let this mix be your guide. Or if you want some motivational music to listen to at work, let this be the one. And check out the other mixes, they are (probably) solid too (haven't listened to them all yet).
