Club Nation is a mix album/compilation album, mixed by Richard Evans and compiled by Ashley Abraham, that was released on 6 April 1998.[citation needed] The compilation is a club mix album that consists of contemporary club tracks. The album is known for the Evian advertising contained within the CD booklet.

Evian advertising[edit]

The Evian logo is present on the album cover and in 6 pages of the booklet, whilst "CD1" of the album features a full Evian bottle and "CD2" features a crushed Evian bottle. Evian had entered into a partnership with EMI and Virgin Records for the Club Nation release,[1] with the move representing a more youthful image for the brand.[2]

Songs and mixing[edit]

The album includes the rare extended version of the Norman Cook remix of "Brimful of Asha" and the "Rock n Roll" remix of Let Me Entertain You".[3]

Allmusic 3/5 stars[4]

Jason Birchmeier of Allmusic gave the album three out of five stars, saying, "it seems far too U.K.-influenced for its own good," and concluding, "It parades itself as being Australian, but at heart it's nothing but a masked U.K. mix."[4]
