1. LISTEN: Nicky Siano Live at The Gallery, October 1976 (AUDIO).

    Monk-Uno says: An exclusive gift for Wax Poetics Nicky Siano has dusted off a recording from October, 1976 at The Gallery and converted it to digital format for the first time. The half-hour snippet of the night is remarkable in the breadth it covers over the course of its abbreviated length, amply demonstrating skills that would be picked up by a future generation of DJs (back-to-back doubles to extend intros, quick-mixing between different songs while keeping the mood and key intact, flawless integration of obscure non-hits to elevate them to anthem status, etc.).
