Massive 5 CD set of dance classics and rarites banged out by the legend himself Ron Hardy! Includes the following discs (audio samples and tracklists contained in the links):
Heads should know the deal, but here's a primer for those who don't know: Ron Hardy is a hugely influential DJ, up there with Levan and Mancuso, who helped usher in the era of House music at the Muzic Box in Chicago (where he was resident from '82-'86) and the current re-edit craze. His sets are the stuff of legend as he would mix everything from disco, soul, new wave, EBM, and proto-house music together in a way that would make everybody lose it on the floor - often times playing his own edits off a Reel-To-Reel player! Get a schooling in the classic Chi-Town sound with this 5 CD set of potent edits along with sureshot dancefloor killers and rarites rocked at the Box. Recommended.
