All Music Guide:

While Larry Heard produced dozens of classic Chicago vocal tracks with the trio Fingers Inc., he reserved Mr. Fingers as a pseudonym for his solo career. During the mid-to-late-'80s, Heard alternated Mr. Fingers EPs -- over-stocked with classics like "Mystery of Love," "Can You Feel It?" and "Washing Machine" -- with the more commercially substantial recordings of Fingers Inc. By 1988 however, the group had split; after working on production with Kym Mazelle, Lil Louis and Ricky Dillard among others, Heard signed to MCA and debuted with 1991's Introduction. He returned in 1994 with Back to Love, then appeared to retire Mr. Fingers in favor of recordings simply as Larry Heard. [See Also: Larry Heard, Fingers Inc.]
