4.50 4

Late 90s reissue of the classic cut and paste single from the mid 80s plus "The Motorcade Sped On", a long sought-after track that was previously only available on a promo 7-inch. Double Dee & Steinski mix together dozens of samples of everything from JFK speeches and cartoon bits to movie dialog and even Mae West over a bed of classic break beats and early hip hop tracks. The Payoff mix is based on Whiz Kid's "Play That Beat", Lesson Two uses lots of James Brown, Lesson Three has everything else. "The Motorcade Sped On" is a funny collection of vocal samples from new reports of the Kennedy assasination that starts off with Ed McMahon introducing a Kennedy speech with "Heeeere's Johnny!"  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Def Jam, 1985. Very Good
Craziness! MCA (of the Beasties) and Burzootie go wild in the studio, and make a lot of noise with a drum machine. Not exactly an old school classic, but a goofy (and rare!) bit of early Def Jam in a nice maroon sleeve. 12-inch, Vinyl record
