Loft Classics is a series of bootleg recordings. The first series from 1 to 15 were released on vinyl in 1995. Volume 16 and 17 were released in 2007. They were later released as bootleg CDs. They feature tracks hard to find on legitimate vinyl releases. Most, though not all, of these selections were in fact played by David Mancuso at one time or another at his Loft parties; Mancuso is adamantly opposed to the series' use of the Loft name and Loft logo. Later, his own compilations were released as Various - David Mancuso Presents The Loft.
