Various - The Best of Gherkin Vol. 1
Opening in 1987 and shutting shop in 1991, this lesser known Chicago house label made a huge impact in those four short years - releasing records from the likes of Larry Heard (an almost 'in-house' producer recording under the name 'Gherkin Jerks' as well as Mr Fingers/Fingers Inc), Derrick May, Ron Trent, Armando and plenty more.
This, their first compilation released in 1990, compiles 8 underground classics from Gallifré, North/Clybourn, Riley Evans, Larry Heard and others.
