      "Most of these tracks are the complete versions, not mixed."
      Can anyone confirm which tracks are mixed and which are unmixed on the vinyl comp?

        A proper live mix. Vinyl two turntables and a mixer. This is Disco at its finest .

          Ciao, what to add on this fantastic mixed CD that other fans haven't already mentioned? Well, the wish that many others still can taste it! P.S. Obviously it is 5 stars.

                I have done a bit of DJ'ing in my life. I Never met Larry but I count Nicky S and Harvey (MOS) amongst my friends. I have had the honour to have shared stories with people who were more than THERE and who knew Larry well with at the start / middle / end of his career. As a DJ this document of more innocent yet ultimately sinister times is priceless and shows what soul and body music could be like. Compare with what was happening say at The Saint and in this one feel the Loft influences running through this mix sadly absent from what came later. That larry was mixing on old school equipment etc. means critical evaluation of the technicality is worthless. Bottom line he was taking the crowd on a journey mostly by feelings alone - utterly priceless and thank goodness Mel Cheren put it out before he passed. Vital

                    Echo the previous comments.

                    When this first came out, I didn't really get it, being more into the eclectic Loft sound. 11 years on from the release, this Levan mix just gets better and better and is played all the time, especially in the car where I can turn it right up.

                    To some modern ears I guess the mixes sound ropey, there are some key clashes, but to me the sound if full on, proper songs for the most part, dripping with emotion. Can't beat it!

                      If truth be told, when first hearing this CD I wasn't that impressed. The mixing was slap dash and the selection of tracks was not always to my taste, I was disappointed. I however decided I shouldn't make my mind up after one listen and played it a few more times. Without realising the disc pratically never left my CD player. The tracks grew on me, the mixing technique began to make sense and this release became the soundtrack for my Saturday nights. This album is fantastic. I don't know how but each and every track has grown on me to such an extent that I really don't know how I was critical in the first place. A total turn about of opinion. So I would recommend this CD to anyone if you enjoy late 70's Disco, Funk, Soul. If you have the ability to approach this mix from another time when mixing was about Heart and Soul and not about Mechanics and Technology then this CD may be for you.

                      Adding a foot note some 5 to 6 years after my initial review.
                      Since then there have been a lot of mixes that have become available. Most of them concentrating on Larry Levan and his mid 80's sets (which is by the way my jumping on point), but still, in my opinion, this is the best of the bunch. Has that magic ingredient that just makes in work.

                        As a long time patron of clubs and dancing I can tell you that no disk will ever capture the feel of the Garage. The Garage had that perfect symbiosis that must occur between the dj and the crowd. The Garage was home to music that only worked there because we were Larry's lab rats and we loved it. We showed the world how Gays and Straights could come together for the sake of music and make it happen... If I had know that we were making history I would have demanded that we would have record more to save for prosperity...
