A heavy set of work from the mighty Fresh Records – one of the most important New York indies of the second half of the 80s – and a label who dominated the scene with a host of key hip hop records and electro soul cuts! This massive 3CD package brings all the best Fresh sounds to light – and focuses on the wide range of styles that kept the company at the top of the heap for a handful of years – the groundbreaking work that would later be copped by bigger labels, but never be done as well as this. DJ/
historian Bill Brewster compiled the set, and adds in lots of notes – and the 46 track package features lots of 12" mixes as well. Titles include "To The Max" by Stezo, "It's My Thing" by EPMD, "Put That Record Back On" by Just Ice, "Last Chance" by Cyre, "Weekend" by Todd Terry, "Tonight" by Hanson & Davis, "Never Gonna Let You Go" by Chandra Simmons, "Lyrical King" by T La Rock, "Just Rhymin" by MC EZ & Troup, "Succe$$ Is The Word" by 12:41, "Freak The Funk" by Stezo, "IT Wasn't Me It Was The Fame" by EPMD, "Love Story" by Just Ice, "Across 110th Street" by El Barrio, "We Can Dance" by Chandra Simmons, "More & More Hits" by Nice & Smooth, "Breaking Bell
s" by T La Rock, "Get Retarded" by MC EZ & Troup, "Made By The Man" by Todd Terry, and "Funky For You" by Nice & Smooth.
