"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

Duel ... CD Sugar Hill, 2004. Used ...
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 ... (Soul) read more12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Sugar Hill sleeve. Labels have a spot of marker.)
An obscure later set from Candi Staton – done on the heels of her bigger club hits, but in a very different mode!
