          I would love to know for sure what year the Larry Heard track was made. Anyone know? I'm guessing 1987.

            Is there a possible reissue happening? Or a single pressing of that craig loftis track, maybe?

              Gotta disagree with you on the Mike Dunn track. For me it's the best cut on the record, reason I bought it

                The Dryer solidifies the duo "Virgo Four" as true early masters of deep house. "Trust" and "Yes I'm Right" make this compilation a true godsend, thank you to Gene Hunt! The genius of this work, produced with relatively little support, compensation or technology, is astounding.

                  If it's possible, part 1 is even better than part 2 (which I got hold of first) Dark and heavy tunes abound from start to finish, although the fact that the Mike Dunn track is derivative is a down point. The StevePoindexter shares a riff from "Strings of Life" - I;m guessing that this one therefore comes from the latter end of the 82-89 timescale, and it sounds like the original tape had a HELLLUVA a lot of rotation!
                  For once, vinyl buyers get some payback for their dedication - not only does each pack contains one bonus track not found on the CD, the longest track on each vinyl set is also edited or curtailed in some way for the silver disc, so although you pay (roughly) 3 times the price, at least you benefit in terms of completion!

                    Wow! These "lost tracks" give a glimpse into the world of the early Chicago Hosue scene, in a way that we have never had before - a glimpse into the world epitomized by Ron Hardy's legendary Music Box, where DJs would play unreleased tracks from their friends and associates, straight off reel-to-reel. Here are a bagful of tapes that Gene has kept for all these years, and now sorted out licensing and publishing so the world can hear these tracks.
                    The Craig Loftis and Sleezy D tracks in particular are absolute bangers, really dark and heavy - redolent of dark rooms with dripping walls. I can't wait for my Part 1 to arrive!

                      Some fantastic tunes on this. Especially Ron Hardy's "Sensation" is a very cool dance track with funky percussion and so "technoid" that it seems to be far ahead of its time considering it is the "Original Mix" of a record released in 1985! Only a very few tracks in the history of house music sound so modern so early - Knight Action's "R-Trax" from 1984 is an example, the very first Acid House track, or Phuture's famous "Acid Tracks", which is said to be played out in Ron Hardy's (!) club in Chicago and by Pierre in the Warehouse already around 1985. Well, with "Sensation" there is now another example how early the house thing started.

                      Remarkable is also Craig Loftis' "Yes I'm Right (Power Plant Mix)" which sounds extremely modern, reminding me so much of contemporary artists like (for example) Vitalic that it's even hard for me to believe this is really an original. But of course: all true originals on this. Incredible! Other tracks in the meanwhile aren't as striking, and especially boring for me is Mike Dunn's "Gherkin Aftermath 909": a merely exact copy of Gherkin Jerks' "Tar-Disc" that doesn't bring anything new to it and lacks the drive of the original.

                        Sleezy D's "Trust" is obviously an earlier (and much better) version of his track "I've Lost Control". It's a dark acid trip into the darkest of house music, no words to describe it. Shocking it's such an old track. I'm speechless.
