Larry Levan's name is synonymous with contemporary dance music culture, his contributions are widely noted in many books and documentaries and in the memories of the lucky people who got to experience his phenomenal DJ sets at the now legendary Paradise Garage in NYC throughout the late 70's until the late 80's. His name is still mentioned with reverence today and he is listed as an influence by countless DJs and artists across the world. Not only did Larry hold down a residency at one of the finest clubs on the planet with his impeccable selecting and DJ-ing skills for a decade, he also lent his expert ear to many remixing jobs and production sessions, adding his touch to a slew of classic dance records that encapsulated the era; Tanaa Gardner "Heartbeat", NYC Peech Boys "Don't Make Me Wait", Esther Williams "I'll Be Your Pleasure", Gwen Guthrie "Seventh Heaven" and Loose Joints "Is It All Over My Face?" to name a select few It is Larry's peerless tastes that form the basis of the second volume of the 2003 Japanese CD only Salsoul records compilation. Compiled by Hisa Ishioka of King Street Sounds / Nite Grooves and consisting of some all time classics dug deep from within Salsoul's vast archives. The tracks included here got regular airings on the dance-floor of the Paradise Garage and helped to form the basis of and inspire the subsequent House and Techno movements in the years following the closure of the club and Larry's' tragic passing. This second volume features another slew of essential tracks from back in the day with classic artists like Skyy, Candido, Instant Funk & Loletta Holloway all featuring. Pressed onto vinyl for the very first time "Paradise Garage - the Legend of Dance Music Vol.2" contains some stone cold Garage anthems, re-mastered and presented here in triple LP format to remind US all of the power of these timeless records, and the power of the mighty Larry Levan!
