Notes

Housed in a slipcase.

"Mystery of Love" is listed as Instrumental, but it's not the Instrumental Mix from the 1986 release on DJ International; rather it's the Dub Version from the 1985 release on Alleviated.

Yup. Was also getting round to pinching a fresh set recently as mines pretty beat- and boom, all gone. Now for the disrespectful price increases...

A Genius.
An Original.
Strangely, but not quite in a Blackstar 'clear vinyl way, that it takes someone to die before they get lauded so highly.
Oh & of course the price of Anything with their name on takes a Jump ???
Time for a re-issue anyone ?

Fantastic selections here, and the mastering is bang on, with the exception of SUN PALACE'S "Rude Movements" which appears to be a vinyl rip. (A bit of a disappointment there)

Both Loft compilations (Vols 1 & 2) are essential pieces of Dance music history containing a wealth of amazing records spanning Disco, Soul, Funk, House, Dub, Disco Not Disco, Electronica, African Funk....They have exposed me to so many artists that I wouldn't have even contemplated or considered coming under the banner of Dance music. That's probably what was so amazing about clubs like The Loft and DJs such as David Mancuso, Larry Levan etc they played and broke great records regardless of their genre. They just had a philosophy of great music that you could dance to. They could drop music with guitars and get people dancing. There is too much pigeon-holing of music these days, going to a club just to check a DJ that plays one narrow style of music, no matter how great he/she is. There is so much fantastic music across the board that clubs should take a leaf out of the Loft's book and get back to basics playing great music regardless of the genre! RESPECT to David Mancuso, Larry Levan and all the DJs who followed in their footsteps.
