El Michels return again to the Wu-Tang chambers – and the results this time might even be better than before!

Def Jam, 1987. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Stone classic LL Cool J! There was a time we didn't really rate this one on the same level as Radio, but listening with fresh ears after all these years – prime old school Def Jam with an energy that's really missing in so much of the hip hop to follow in the next couple years – and ... read more CD

The classic self-titled debut LP from Run-DMC – one that changed hip hop (and much of modern pop and rock) forever! There's little we can add to the canon for this record.
