Jack Is The One Who Gives You The Key To The Wiggily Worm  

"Jack boldly declared: 'Let there be house!' And house music was born."

Larry Heard AKA Mr. Fingers produced this record in 1986. This record was a follow-up to his 1985 release Mystery Of Love. Early in his music career he was in a jazz fusion group with Adonis (whose music also has a similar sound). He later fronted the group Fingers Inc. and started producing tracks under several monikers. His tracks ushered in the deep house sound with an ethereal, serotonin laced groove that can give you a sense of the elation that those dancers felt on the dancefloor of The Warehouse in the mid-80's. This is the instrumental version, the more common version features a Dr. King like sermon about Jack and the origins of house music.

    It's not really the instrumental, it's the original.

    The other, with the vocal, is a later version.

    The speech is uttered by a man called Chuck Roberts.
    I don't think Larry Heard himself put that speech in, someone else did. According to Heard, Jack is "Just some guy"..
    The "In The Beginning.." monologue appeard first in 1987 on Rhythm Control - "My House" on Catch A Beat Records, which is a brilliant Chicago track.
    Many people thinks "Can You Feel It" is the originator of this speech, but it is not.
