    Excellent pressing quality, clean and flat vinyl. No clicks on my copy.
    Different versions / mixes of the tracks as on the digital release.
    In my opinion, all tracks are real house bangers ;-)

      Absolutely essential for all Louie Vega fans and fans of quality house music. This is probably his strongest Album to date.

        The Moodymann track is the highlight of this LP IMO. Just a killer tune. Another Kenny Dixon Jr banger

          To be honest, I wasn't too keen on Louie Vega's extra-large sized, four-disc vinyl edition here. Oddly enough, it reminded me just too much of another still rather nice-sounding vocal House album that came as an extended triple-LP pack and, more importantly, sounds today also surprisingly a little fresher than Louie's production, despite it being nearly 25 years old.☝️Hard to believe, but true!

          Compare Kim English - Higher Things with Louie Vega - Expansions In The NYC and be the judge yourself 😉...

          Ironically, both albums were released on Nervous Records, with Louie also remixing a song from Kim English's album as part of Masters At Work. So if that doesn't mean coming full circle here...

          ☝️☝️☝️Anyway, it's time to wake up from your beauty sleep, because you have to be quick and better order now, otherwise you'll surely regret it later - Louie Vega, surprise, surprise, has just released a trio of double-pack 12″s:

          * Louie Vega - Chimi / Change Your Mind / Atmosphere Strut,
          * Louie Vega - The Star Of A Story / Love Has No Time Or Place / A Place Where We Can All Be Free
          * Louie Vega - Joy Universal / Igobolo (Feelin' Love).

          These 2x12"s feature special unreleased versions of select tracks from the Louie Vega - Expansions In The NYC album project! And these new mixes are really great and IMO also much better than the original songs 🫶.

          Especially the Louie Vega - Chimi / Change Your Mind / Atmosphere Strut double pack, which serves as a wonderful tribute to the late Larry Levan and Patrick Adams (R.I.P. both) is truly phenomenal. Again, don't sleep as pressings of these three double-vinyl sets are limited…😊👍.

            Was there not a repress of this expected over summer... or have I missed it?

              worth it for just the moodymann vega track seven mile it's outstanding

                Sad to see people paying over the odds. It's always worth a quick google before pulling the trigger.

                  Good news: there will be a repress in July 2022.

                    Participation of Josh Milan is so pervasive this almost feels like a secret Blaze album, not "just" another impeccable Louie Vega all-star project. Yummy.

                      Will there be a CD release in the near future?
