The article cites 1984 as being the year of the first original house composition release on record. The article cites the "early 1980s" for the formation of the house sound. But the early 1980s cease in 1984. I have having a discussion with another editor about this. The article on Chicago House states that the first releases of house compositions were in the "mid-to-late 1980s. So, barring influences and precursors which are covered elsewhere in the article, how can the early 1980s be cited for the first compositions AND releases?
The lead section in House Music, Kim Mazelle is listed as an early pioneer when she wasn't on any recording's until the late 80's (1987's House to House produced by Marshall Jefferson). Early pioneers mentioned like Knuckles/Heard/and Phuture in Acid house should be joined by Jesse Saunders (On And On 1984),Dj Ron Hardy, Marshall Jefferson with several tracks on Trax records 85/86, and even Jamie Principle who's "Your Love" had two incarnations in 85-87. Much of this information is already on Wikipedia in various locations including the main article "House Music". This information is also stated in the same way on several articles available on the web as well as interviews and videos. Ghoul922 (talk) 08:23, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
Influence of the song "Burnin' Up" by Imagination
According to the Wikipedia page dedicated to Body Talk (Imagination album), the track "Burnin' Up" has been acknowledged by Frankie Knuckles as a key track in the development of house music, and yet nothing is mentioned about it in this page. In fact, if you listen to it, you will find very hard to believe it was recorded in 1981! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 04:12, 6 May 2018 (UTC)
