referencing Undercover (Remix), 12", JS-9995

Dr. Derelict = Wayne "Ambassador Of House" Williams. Wayne was a very important figure in the formative years of Chicago House and still remains an unsung hero to most . It's a shame he didn't make more tracks, but he did have a few good records released on Trax Records.

The latter part of the 80's would see Wayne go on to work for the Jive Chicago label. He was instrumental in getting the likes of DJ Pierre, Liz Torres, Jesse Saunders, Mr. Lee and Da Posse in for tracks and mixes respectively.

But back to this 12". My pick for best version (there was also an earlier 12" with different versions:https://www.discogs.com/Dr-Derelict-Under-Cover/release/738958) is the 'Dub-A-Cover (Remix) (With Bonus Freaks)'.

And speaking of Chicago unsung heroes (adding it here before I forget!):-

Another early Chicago unsung hero to read and get to know about is Leonard "Remix" Rroy. He never made any tracks (afaik) but Leonard sure has history and has always had a lot to say on Chicago's early and humble beginnings. Be sure to check some of his vids out on YouTube for starters.
