Larry Levan - The Final Nights Of Paradise Pt. 3/5Skydiver Records
Volumes have been written about Larry Levan & NYC's Paradise Garage, and how they influenced disco and club culture. It's the stuff of legend - the spectacular sound system, the incredible music, and the crowds that danced 'til noon. Paradise Garage ran for over a decade ('76 - '87) but like all good things, it had to come to an end, leaving many without having had the chance to experience it first hand. Not all hope is lost, however, as these high-quality recordings from the nightlife institution's final nights have been properly pressed up on wax. This is DJ history right here, Larry Levan throwing it down all the way live on 2 turntables and a Urei 1620 with delay effects on a reel-to-reel. Obviously he KILLS it - over and over and over again. The series compiles volumes 1-5, each disc with newly designed, silk-screened "G" covers (with different personal accounts of ex-Paradise Garage patrons printed on the back). Each side plays for about 25 minutes. Highly Recommended. "THE SPIRIT OF THE "G" LIVES ON FOREVER."
