Review

Despite Larry Heard's deserved reputation as the Godfather of Deep House, some of his best material is a lot more robust and jacking. Amongst house historians, there's rightly a lot of love for his work as Gherkin Jerks, which veered from full-on Chicago jack-tracks to thrilling Detroit futirism over the course of two hard-to-find EPs. Following welcome vinyl reissues of those two EPs, Alleviated have gathered that material - together with a sprinkling of previously unheard material from the producer's archive - on one essential CD. The unreleased material is good - particularly the Phuture-ish acid of "Ecstasy (full take)" and the sparse Chi-town analogue funk of "Reznaytor" - making it a must-have for fans of vintage analogue house.
