That wasn't an observation levelled at the compilation, the artwork just reminded me - because latterly they have become a visual metaphor for hardcore. But I wonder when/where that started, because it feels inauthentic.

I'd wholeheartedly agree. I think the smiley just became shorthand for rave on the covers of compilations of old skool with Ebeneezer Goode on. Then again, I can't think of any other visual signifiers of 'rave'. Generally they make do with airbrushed naked ladies.
