Larry Heard to Reissue 1994 Album, Sceneries Not Songs

1994 saw the release of pioneering Chicago deep house DJ and producer Larry Heard‘s Sceneries Not Songs via Black Market International. On August 24th, 2020 he will reissue the nine-song album as a double-vinyl LP through his own label, Alleviated Records.

Prior to Sceneries Not Songs, Heard had primarily put out music through his Mr. Fingers pseudonym. The album marked yet a bigger a departure. Whereas his previous releases explored a more tranquil iteration of Chicago house, Sceneries Not Songs saw Heard touch on ambient, downtempo and jazz. “Question Of Time” – previously only available on CD – will be included as a bonus track.

Heard recently made a more defensive move to reclaim his more seminal discography. In June, Tap Music Publishing filed a lawsuit on behalf of him and Robert Owens against Chicago house label Trax Records over unpaid royalties.
