This is the greatest sounding set from Ron Hardy, I have ever heard. Most tapes were transferred at like 24kbps. This is 320kbps and sounds like it.

For those who need an introduction (I shall give you one)

Ron Hardy along with Frankie Knuckles are probably most likely responsible for the house movement explosion in the mid 80's in Chicago. Frankie got the glory with the wareHOUSE, which he lived in a loft in the upstairs. Hardy does not get his dues and that is because he died in 1992 and never did interviews but the people that were inspired from the Musicbox go like this (Chez Damier, Marshall Jefferson, Derrick May, Juan Atkins, DJ Pierre among many others).

He was weird tho, because he would play reel to reel records and play weird stuff and pitch it up(hero!). Derrick May recalls him playing a stevie wonder track at +8.

Anyway, for those who have no clue about real house, here is an introduction from the legend.
