The name is Denis. Second, if anyone here is missing the boat, it is you. You said, the singing career of Samantha Fox did not start until 2006!! LOL Get you facts straight, lay off the hallucinogens.

What I said Mr Denis...was that her debut single was not released till 1986.
So I stand by my facts once more...We will have to agree to disagree on this one my brother...

You Did Not say 1986, you said 2006!!--- look for yourself!-"Sam Fox from the Uk started topless modeling in 1983 but her singing career did not start until March 2006 with the release of her debut single "Touch Me" on the Stock, Aitken & Waterman lable." Those are your words! I was off by a few years, You were off by two decades!! LOL

Perhaps, I can help. Pete, remember, you & your crew went back to TITTLES in 86 when it was called SCARLETTS, so maybe it was then that the Samantha Fox visit happened. But Soul-Boy, you certainly were wrong. She was around these parts in those days, she played many local clubs back then. It wasn't 2006. That is for sure, and I don't do drugs! Never have! No credit lost, just a small error. It's all good!

Ed / Pete,

I made two typing errors, my first post was meant to say 1986 and not 2006 and my second was to spell Pete Denis wrong..I am sorry for the typing errors, however I simply stated that her singing carear did not start till 1986 and not 1983 as Pete thought. All I am saying that you were off by a few years. She probaly did tour in 86', that's not in doubt here. I never once stated you were a liar Pete, just a simple mistake was pointed out. We all make mistakes as my typing errors prove but there is no need to go for my jugular Pete, you should know me by now that I don't bullshit and bare any malice to anyone, especially you!

Soul-Boy. Don't you see, Pete is fu****g with you. LOL He gets Denis and Dennis all the time. He was simply busting your balls. He knew there was an explanation, he just added the drama for effect! Don't think he was actually upset. He wasn't. He just, "went with the flow". LOL



PETE'S NOTE:: He is totally right!

There's some great early Chicago tracks on this list and this means that LL maybe couldn't not mix but his ears and his taste of music was very active :D

When I went to the Paradise Garage from 1981-1987, Larry's playlist contained Chicago Tracks. It wasn't about matching beats for the most part; The programming from his mind and inner feelings told various stories during his sets.

I can imagine what kind of stories a DJ tell using jack tracks like Steve Hurley - ''Jack Your Body'',LNR - ''Work It To The Bone'',Hercules - ''Seven Ways To Jack'' or Chip E. - ''Like This''!!!
There's a lot of messages and deep meanings in them.....

Definitely messages sent with tracks released from Trax Records, DJ International and others from Chi-Town. Blaze, Fast Eddie, Ten City, and anything by Marshall Jefferson.

Robert Owens and more!!!!

There was not any House Music back in 1981 except if with the term House you mean songs like ''Magnificent Dance'' by the Clash or the post Disco releases of West End and Prelude records back then.
House Music is a Chicago thing that comes in 1983.
There's no need to take so seriously my opinion about LL's list,YOU'RE NOT Larry Levan or his lawyer,so keep your energy for some REAL posts here!!!!

With all due respect Delmar, we could go round and round discussing LL's prowess as a dj but I can't take the bit about "The programming from his mind and inner feelings told various stories during his sets" too seriously!..I do believe that LL's main attribute that set him aside from his peers was his programming but I don't believe that his aim was to create various stories and express his inner feelings in his sets. I think the hype of LL being in legendary status carries the myth of what he was all about IMO. I believe he just wanted to have fun while spinning and entertain his crowd with unusal tracks that you would not here anywhere else and I am sure he was not trying to convey any deep messages in his music. Let's face it, most of the time that he was working, he was under the influence of drugs according to most articles that are written about him. Nothing deep about that brother!...If you ignore the mixing and concentrate on the programming, LL was indeed a good dj but the dude is no role model and he certainly is no poet!!

I agree Mikey!!!
I was at The Garage when he was spinning HOT like a firecracker and I was there when he was apathetic. I was there when he played "Let Yourself Go" by The Supremes for 45 minutes straight (we were like WTF??) and I was there at the end of the night when he was rushing out of there. He spun where his many moods took him.
I wasn't there week after week; but when I was there he had his magical moments.
I also understand where drugs can take you while spinning. The many different moods that you go through comes out in your spinning. I can imagine that's why there are so many different opinions about LL's work.

One thing is for sure!!! His remixes with his name on it; whether he did them or not (I still hear the rumours) are songs of an era!!! That is the kind of music that transends boundaries; and I will always be greatful!!!
