Description

(RH Record of the week review at the bottom of this text)

The first ever reissue of one of the holy grails of house music, Larry Heard’s seminal 1989 masterpiece ‘Amnesia’, the album that contained some of the best ever versions of by then already classic Fingers material like ‘Can You Feel It’, ‘Washing Machine’, ‘Stars’ and ‘Mystery of Love’.

Generally considered as one of the definitive milestones in house music history (along with Fingers Inc’s ‘Another Side’, that was released a year earlier), this is a total must-have for anyone even remotely interested in electronic music.

Rush Hour Store Record of the week W30:

Over the past three decades Larry Heard’s seminal 1989 masterpiece ‘Amnesia’ grew out to become one of the most sought-after records in house music history. Now the first ever official reissue is finally here.

Rivaled in scarcity only by ‘Introduction’ (1992) and ‘Sceneries Not Songs’ (the 1994 Black Market album that got reissued in 2020, also on Heard’s own Alleviated Records), ‘Amnesia’ is generally considered one of the definitive milestones in house music history, along with Fingers Inc’s ‘Another Side’, that was released a year earlier.

Marking both the beginning and the end of the first era of house music and signaling the advent of the second phase of Heard’s work (for context, the gorgeously jazzy ‘What About this Love’ came out the same year), the album contained some of the best ever versions of by then already classic Fingers material like ‘Can You Feel It’, ‘Washing Machine’, ‘Stars’ and ‘Mystery of Love’ - all tracks that for the most part had already been released in different shapes and forms since the inception of Alleviated in 1985, with the exception of the title track and the alternate version of ‘Bye Bye’.

Thirty three years later ‘Amnesia’ is still a vital piece of house music history, this time pressed on three records instead of two, giving it a bit more space to breathe. Sounding gorgeous as ever this is still a total must-have for anyone with even the slightest interest in electronic music. (Rogier)
