Beyond Heaven: Chicago House Flyers Volume III / A 96-page paperback from Almighty & Insane Books, published 2022 / full color / 6 x 9 inches
We are pleased to present the third and final volume of the trilogy—Beyond Heaven: Volume III. This book reflects a more recent expansion of Mario “Liv It Up” Luna’s collection of Chicago house music flyers (a.k.a. pluggers), ranging from the years 1983 to 1992. The selection includes a number of rare and important flyers ranging from parties at the Muzic Box, Medusa’s, Sauer’s, and the Rainbo with heavy hitters like Ron Hardy, Frankie Knuckles, Mr Fingers, Marshall Jefferson, Steve “Silk” Hurley, Jesse Saunders, Lil Louis, Chip E and various combinations of the WBMX Hot Mix 5, to Luna’s own scene of Latino party crews, dance groups, and DJs across the Southside. Sharing the same format as the two previous, this volume once again brings you straight to the source for the who/what/when/where and visual aesthetics of the time when house music was born and took over Chicago!
