Chicago Dance Tracks Pt 1 DLP
Part one of two 2LPs of never-before-released tracks from the archives of Gene Hunt -- rare, newly-unearthed Chicago house barn-stormers from the '80s. Gene Hunt shares his ancient treasures with us -- up to now, this stuff resided only on reels! Featuring a truly all-star line-up. TIP! The tracks included here are all rough, uncut versions, oftentimes homemade drum computer jams that never made it to final production at a professional studio. They represent early output of the artists involved, some tracks dating back as early as 1982-1983. Besides unreleased tracks by Mr. Fingers, Steve Poindexter, Farley J.M.F. and Steve Hurley, the compilation also includes reworks and original versions that were never properly released, like Ron Hardy's original version of "Sensation" or Mike Dunn's rework of Gherkin Jerks' (Larry Heard) "Acid Indigestion." The vinyl release holds seven tracks, all presented in their original length and includes one vinyl-only bonus track, Steve Poindexter's "Betsy Smithe." All tracks have been restored and remastered from the original, first generation reel-to-reel tapes. The artwork shows original Chicago flyers and the release comes with an insert with artist interviews, a Gene Hunt interview by Jackmaster Farley and original photos from back in the day.
