" It's now also used for an upstart, a late adherent to a trend or cause...."
Unfortunately, NOT everyone was old enough or even born at the right time to experience the Joys of mr.Levan on a Dance-floor.
'Johnny-cum- anything.." has a whiff of the Superiority Complex that those 'Disco Sucks' nut-jobs had pouring out of them.
NOW, this guy is Lorded as a fecking-legend but I remember a time, not SO long ago b4 'hipsters' when you couldn't give away a 'mix' by him.
Those guys who will happily fork out for a record JUST because it has his name on it, or they read in A List that it was SO bloody 'rare', are the only [hopefully] 'few' who deserve any contempt.
A great example being some say Jeffrey Osborne's 12'' records that Flopped [Too Clubby, I often read...] that when it was belatedly realised WHO 'done the mix'...
They suddenly jumped outta the .99p racks ?
Or the kind who [knowingly ?] try and flog a track he'd play AS a 'Larry Levan Mix'.
When the biggest part of any 'input' by him was to put the tune on a Playlist !
Can't we just enjoy his skills ?

Some classic tracks you'll recognise, a few hidden gems you won't. Either way, a great collection of Levan tracks all carrying his signature style. More suited to the connoisseur or knowledgeable purveyor but Johnny-come-latelies can jump aboard if they've got the right ticket.
