✨✧ Sugarhill Gang8th Wonder/Sugar Hill Groove ... 12-inch
Sugar Hill, 1980. Very Good ... $1.99
A lively little groover from the Sugarhill Gang – one based around the excellent "Daisy Lady" sample from 7th Wonder! The track makes great use of the original's brassy horns – inflecting a bright, almost Latiny finish on the tune – all to set the stage for some great rhymes from the crew! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Sugar Hill sleeve.)

Sugarhill Gang8th Wonder ... LP
Sugar Hill, 1981. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of the first full albums from the Sugarhill Gang – and a good sampling of their early tracks for Sugarhill! Includes the group's classic remake of "Apache" – complete with breaks stolen from the Incredible Bongo Band – plus the cuts "Funk Box" and "On The Money", which both have a compressed 80s groove soul sort of approach. Also features "Showdown", a classic old school battle track, recorded with the Furious 5 – plus the cuts "8th Wonder", "Hot Hot Summer Day", and "Kick It Live From 9 to 5". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sugarhill GangSugarhill Gang ... LP
Sugar Hill, 1979. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The eponymous LP by the Sugarhill Gang – with some of the most infectious late 70s/early 80s grooves ever laid to wax! This is one of the first-ever full-length hip hop albums – cut on the success of the massive "Rapper's Delight" single! The record purports to feature percussion by Tito Puente – and it's also got live instrumentation by Keith LeBlanc on drums, Skip McDonald on guitar, and Sylvia Robinson on vibes. Features a 5 minute version of "Rappers Delight", plus "Rappers Reprise", "Passion Play", "Sugarhill Groove", and "Here I Am". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original gatefold pressing. Cover has moderate wear.)

Candi StatonNightlites ... CD
Sugar Hill/Universal (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... About February 24, 2016
An obscure later set from Candi Staton – done on the heels of her bigger club hits, but in a very different mode! The style is very much in an 80s groove sort of bag – and Candi's backed on the album by the Sugarhill Gang and West Street Mob – but produced with a slightly southern feel by Dave Crawford, who'd handled some of Candi's other 70s sessions. The mix has an appealing indie sort of feel, and Candi's vocals are very upfront in the mix, even on the more electric tunes. Titles include "Love & Be Free", "The Sunshine Of Our Love", "Hurry Sundown", "Tender Hooks", "Count On Me", and "Suspicious Minds". CD

✨✧ SequenceFunk You Up (long, short) ... 12-inch
Sugar Hill, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
Three female singers/MC's with backing by the Sugarhill Gang Band – and rhymes that sound like they might have been written by the Sugarhill Gang. Maybe it's not up to the standards of other early female MC's like Sha Rock of the Funky 4 +1, but this is more like a 1979-era slow-tempo funk/dance track than a straight hip hop record. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Sugar Hill sleeve.)
