Friendship on this day in history


Larry Levan plays his last weekend at the Paradise Garage in 1987.

Finding the Paradise Garage Classics 1976-1987 playlist in 1996, when I first gained access to the internet was the impetus for starting The song you hear Larry playing is by the first male disco diva: Sylvester. The song in question “You are my Friend” is surely the most beautiful ode to friendship ever confined to vinyl. 

If you would like to investigate Larry’s music further, I recommend the trilogy Club Classics & House Foundations (1995). Buy from Amazon here, here and here.
