Crash Crew ... LP Sugar Hill, 1984. New Copy (reissue)...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest hip hop acts from the early days of Sugar Hill – but a group who don't often get the same sort of cred as the label's bigger names at the time! The Crash Crew have a youthful energy that really lives up to their name – a loose approach to rhyme that sounds ... (Hip Hop) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
"That's The Joint" is one of our favorite grooves from the classic years of Sugar Hill Records – a killer cut based around Cheryl Lynn's "To Be Real" – with the original groove slamming nicely on the bottom, as Funky 4 Plus 1 trade lines over the top! The track's ... (Hip Hop) read more12-inch, Vinyl record

Message ... LP Sugar Hill, 1982. New Copy (reissue)...
The classic debut album by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five – one of the pioneering groups in hip hop -history- not that we didn't need to tell you that! With prototypical party jams and the original conscious rap landmark "The Message", all over old school grooves laid ... (Hip Hop) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The original message rhyme, or at least the biggest one of its day, a track that would spawn a lot of imitiations, including more than a handful of followups from the Furious 5 and Melle Mel. (Hip Hop) 12-inch, Vinyl record
The follow up to "The Message", and another classic early 80s number from Grandmaster Flash and crew. Once again, the theme is the trials of city life, and once again, they come up with another winning message cut. (Hip Hop) 12-inch, Vinyl record
Not the best of old school female rap, but still a lot of fun, and besides, it's Angie Stone's first group! This is the second Sequence LP, still with the Sugarhill house band and Sylvia Robinson's guiding hand at the production desk, and includes "Cold Sweat", "I Don't Need Your ...

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, who both give the whole thing a nice east ... (Soul) read moreCD
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 ... (Hip Hop) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Probably the best album ever cut by this DC funk group that defined the Go Go sound of the early 80s! The record features tracks that are a bit tighter than usual, with some nice heavy moments, and the occasional nice drumbreak. Titles include "Pump Me Up", "Drop The Bomb", ...
