Some of these tracks were available on the previous RHINO comp, "Give your body up--Club classics & house foundations--Vol. 1-3", and the mastering of those songs was MUCH BETTER than on this comp. Too much limiting used on this one...

Although that series did not have Larry's name in the title, he is mentioned in the liner notes as is the Garage and The Loft.

Shouldn't this be recorded under Larry Levan and not "Various"?

Very good overview of the most famous tracks in Larry Levan's playlist. Of course there got to be a few hundred more and one would wish this compilation was the first in a series to come. Rhino left us here with just one Volume. The only negative point here to be mentioned is the compressed loudness mastering.
