This review is from: Larry Levan Live at the Paradise Garage (Audio CD)
Thought I had some idea what 'disco' meant until I heard this... Forget the commercial pap, this was underground in it's day. Must have listened to it at least 50 times since I bought it, this is an absolute gem. Beautiful, soulful grooves, penetrating beats, rolling breakdowns, jazzed out riffs, plaintiff vocals, this has to be one of the best dance music mixes I've ever heard. This is the legend himself, the man who's widely credited with spawning club culture. By todays standards some of the mixing might be a bit ropey, but this is really about the tracks, the sequence, the feeling. I love it.
