Alleviated Records represents the recording Label of celebrated dance music producer/singer Larry Heard established in 1985. The record company is releasing quality dance music and itís aiming to provide quality and integrity.
Larry Heardís legacy is undeniable, helping to shape the house music genre as well as influencing many producers with a wealth of soulful, forward thinking music that sounds as relevant today as it did 25 years ago.
Larry Heard (born 1960) is a musician widely known for the Chicago house music he produced in the mid-1980s and continues to produce today. He was a member of the influential group Fingers, Inc. and has recorded solo under various names, most notably Mr. Fingers.
The first 2 releases were issued with no label name indicated. The 3rd release was issued with the label name "Select Records" and it was then discovered that there was already a label with that name. The Alleviated name was used starting with the 4th release (though it did not formally appear on some records).
Alleviated Recordsí debut release was the now classic "Mystery of Love" by Loosefingers (later changed to Mr. Fingers). The Label released about eleven more singles and EP's before going into an inactive status in 1991.
A couple of the highlights of the Alleviated Records catalog are the now classic single "Shine" by Kriss Coleman (1990) and the now classic single "What About This Love?" by Mr. Fingers (1989). Also, it is not widely known, but the now classic single "Bring Down the Walls" by Robert Owens was originally released by Alleviated Records in 1986. Alleviated Records also has in its' catalog, the now "legendary" album "Another Side" by Fingers, Inc. (in Association with Musical Directions - London) that was originally released by Jack Trax Records (London) in 1988.
