Emerging from NY's gay disco scene, the Garage followed the early '70s lead of David Mancuso's Loft and Nicky Siano's Gallery by firmly placing the DJ as the focus of the club.
Although there is much urban myth about the Garage, and bootleg tapes of Levan sessions have surfaced, there has never been a live DJ set by Larry Levan at the Garage made commercially available before now.
The quality of the tapes is superb, and the session captures the full spirit of the Garage, the emphasis being on great tunes at a time when 'the message was in the music' -- a time before today's obsession with fluid mixing and little substance.
