Que Darryl Pandy(R.I.P.):..." Now this is how it started!.. "

Here's a list of the earliest Pre Chicago House and Chicago House proper records. All records featured in this list are from 1983 - 1985.

Most of the records featured, as you would expect, are influenced by Italo-Disco, Synth Pop , New Wave, Disco, Electro and HI-NRG.

Records in no order - I love them all!

Records in list at time of edit:75

Big peace and respect to all Chi-House fans.
