Washing Machine/Can You Feel It/Beyond The Clouds

12-inch (Item 76886) Trax, 1986 — Condition: Good+

If you ask us, this is Larry Heard's finest moment, combining the raw energy of early Chicago house with a jazzy sensibility, warm tones on the keyboards and a spare approach that gives all the elements room to breath. A modern classic!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Red label pressing.)

Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw, such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
  • May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-, or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
  • In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount, and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

A classic early bit of Chicago Latin house that needs no introduction in these parts. Super stripped down, with some nice Latin-y percussion over the top. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Trax, 1986. Very Good-
Another great Trax single from Adonis, not quite as Acid sounding as "No Way Out", but a catchy groove nonetheless. You've got to love those 909 handclaps! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Trax, 1987. Very Good
Early tracks on Trax, with a very new wave feel, rather than the acid sound that was dominating at the time. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Trax, 1986. Good+
A soulful classic from Chicago! "Move Your Body" is a wonderful house tune – one with a warmer groove than usual, and vocals that really drive the track in a great way. Mixed by Chicago legend Ron Hardy, this track needs no introduction around these parts, and we'd be surprised if ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Trax, 1988. Very Good-
Classic from the Chicago house scene – and still a bonafide club floor shaker! "Get The Hole" is a persistent jam that continues on in the "Acid Hole" version – getting more beats focused as it builds. "Under Control" and it's dub version on the flip are ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Trax, 1987. Very Good-
Four tracks of seminal chicago house from Lidell Toownsell and crew, stripped down without too much acid influence, but still great! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Deep dubby almost techno feeling tracks from the first generation of house by Adonis with some help from Frankie Knuckles on the mix. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sire, 1983. Very Good+ (pic cover)
What can we say? Despite the stupid appearance of the band, "White Horse" was a classic breakdance/electro track that crossed over so big it had kids in Kansas running out to by parachute pants and squares of linoleum to play along with the kids in the Bronx. Despite that runaway hit ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
BC, Early 80s. Very Good+
Nice 12" version of this 80s groove number, with a tight "Heartbeat" type groove that's got a nice old school feel, some squelchy synths to give it electro authenticity, and a rolling almost stepper's piano line! 12-inch, Vinyl record
