Finally, some 20 years after it was recorded (it hit stores on vinyl and CD a year later), Larry Heard has dropped a digital download reissue of 'Sceneries, Not Songs Vol 1', his first album under his given name (his previous full-length excursions were credited to Mr Fingers). It remains a classic full-length; a set in which he expanded on his usual detailed deep house sound and displayed the full scope of his musical vision. Of course, there's plenty of genuinely vintage, often intergalactic-sounding deep house on show (see 'Dolphin Dream' and the epic 'Midnight Movement'), but also forays into ambient ('Tahiti Dusk', 'Snowcaps', 'Winter Winds & Chills'), head-nodding downtempo beats ('Sumnertime Breeze') and jazzy mid-tempo gear ('One, Three, Five, Seven, Eight', where Heard lays down some impeccable solos).
