By the early '80s, disco had gone back underground, and no one kept the beat spinning like Larry Levan, of New York's Paradise Garage. Collecting signature cuts from the DJ's sets, including his own iconic edits of songs like Peech Boys' "Don't Make Me Wait", Journey Into Paradise offers a snapshot of the soulful cutting edge of that era's dance music. Alternating lush, starry-eyed jams with sparse, percussive workouts and springy electronic funk, it's a feel-good tribute to Levan's unerring instincts and trailblazing tastes.
Great stuff from the Legend that is Larry ... i wish id have seen him life
a good set of tunes here worth every penny!
Two words... Ahhhh-mazing!
If you love late 70s early 80s soulful disco but hate the predictable compilations then you have to download this. I literally LOVE this! Very studio 54, cool songs that are both familiar and still fresh sounding. Each track will have you sighing!
