Larry Levan – Live From Paradise Garage Pt. 1, 2 & 3


Have to give major props to Isodisco and BBC6 music for this one – this is such a gem, pardon the drama, but it’s a real piece of hist-or-ee! Recorded at the Paradise Garage’s 2nd Birthday by Lenny Fontana on a reel-to-reel and later transfered to DAT, the quality is beyond most of the usual crusty Levan mixes.
