The "showdown...all the way live between the Sugarhillgang and the Furious Five". A nice early Furious Five cut that someone has sampled recently. And while were not the biggest SugarhillGang fans, they do alright on this cut with the Furious Five, who we suspect actually wrote the SugarhillGang's rhymes on this one. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a Sugar Hill sleeve, with a cut corner.)
A lively little groover from the SugarhillGang – 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

8th Wonder ... LP Sugar Hill, 1981. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first full albums from the SugarhillGang – 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
