You can't claim to be a house head and NOT know Larry Levan. This legend dominated the NYC scene with hos regular gigs at Paradise Garage, causing many of his fans to refer to his sets as "Saturday Mass." Even though Larry passed away 23 years ago, several of his mixes still are played and replayed to show what a true house music set was.
Levan started out in the early 70's playing disco with Frankie Knuckles in many a NYC underground club. In 1977, he started his residency at Paradise Garage. He stayed at Paradise Garage until it closed in 1987. Levan was also a remixer, remixing such classics as "Ain't Nothin' Goin On But The Rent" by Gwen Guthrie and "Heartbeat" by Taana Gardner. Just as he was making a comeback in the early 90's with remixes and sets for Ministry of Sound, he passed away of a heart condition in 1992.
This set was recorded in New York in 1991. There's no tracklisting but it's a solid set.
