KLF stands for Kopyright Liberation Foundation - hence their first albums were all about sampling other artists. Although widely acclaimed, the whole lot of albums had to be junked due to infringing Whitney and Abba.
They released a book called How to Have a Number One and then proceeded to follow it - at least to no. 2 in the charts (UK).
The Chill Out album is a perfect album - and very rare in that. It does exactly what it says on the tin. On first hearing you can't believe what you're hearing - but put it on when u r chilling, drifting off to sleep, tripping or stoned and you'll find out its power. Awesome. And never copied sucessfully.

I have been a K.L.F fan ever since I heard 3 A.M. Eternal.
This song was wayyy ahead of it's time. The composition, the samples used, everything about this song sound unique and interesting.
I remember passing through Coney Island were the rides are located and hearing 3.A.M Eternal play. It made the day very interesting.
I also remember Last Train To Trancentral and What Time is Love on the radio. I love those songs too. I currently own the album The White Room in cassette and CD. I am trying to find the DVD. Jimmy and Bill look very serious but do very unconventional things. They usually dress up in their vids as a sort of Monk with a large horn, weird...Anyway, I will always be a K.L.F. fan even though they are "Out of business".

They were audacious, provokative, original, ahead-of-their-time & all that (Who fulfils that in Popular music currently). Albums like Chill Out and The White Room are groundbreakers in the art of sampling if only for doing it so densely at that time.
