Mr Fingers – Amnesia (Reissue) 3XLP – Alleviated

It could be argued that Larry Heard’s first album as Mr Fingers, 1989’s Amnesia, was the first full-length to show the rich musical potential of deep house. It was certainly the greatest house album of its period and remains – as this reissue proves – a timeless classic. Now pressed on three slabs of wax rather than two to make it more DJ-friendly, the set pairs stone cold Mr Fingers classics such as ‘Mystery of Love (Dub)’, ‘Can You Feel It’ (presented in its arguably superior instrumental form) and ‘Washing Machine’, with lesser-celebrated treats such as the breathlessly jacking and percussive ‘Slam Dance’, the lusciousl;y kaleidoscopic ‘Stars’ and the early morning delight that is ‘For So Long’. It’s an album every house head needs in their life.
