Last Night a DJ Saved My Life - Warehouse Top 50 (Bill Brewster)

From FACT:
News of Frankie Knuckles’ unexpected death sparked an outpouring of affectionate tributes from around the world this morning, with all in agreement that his sets at Chicago’s Warehouse club around the turn of the ’80s helped define the direction of house music. To pay tribute to the Chicago legend, RBMA and dance historian Bill Brewster have pieced together a YouTube playlist that recreates a typically eclectic Knuckles set on his home turf, featuring ESG, Chaka Khan, Roy Ayers, Yello, Giorgio Moroder and disco, funk, electronic and jazz cuts from across the spectrum.
Actually, the playlist counts 49 tracks. Listen to them on YouTube or (41 tracks) on the Spotify playlist below.
