Looking Good Records (referred to as LGR onwards) was launched in 1995 as a sub-label of Good Looking Records. LGR has released to the time of writing 52 singles, 5 retrospective compilations under the title “Looking Back” containing tracks previously released as singles, as well as an unmixed 9-track compilation entitled “Visions” – available only in cd format – with contributions from various artists of the Good Looking Organisation roster.

Many of the LGR releases have been also included in the various installments of the Progression Session series. Continue reading

It has been a long trip down memory lane; a parade of countless classics from the back catalogues of all the labels that were prominent in the game throughout the second half of the 90’s (Good Looking, Metalheadz, Moving Shadow, Timeless, Skanna, Dee Jay Recordings, Creative Source, Creative Wax just to name a few…)
It is very hard to describe the feelings and the memories unleashed during that night making it almost a religious experience for the lucky attendants. I apologize in advance for the poor quality of my videos attached, but let them give a brief, but in no way conclusive, review of what happened that night.
