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

Jack McDuff —
Kisses ... LP Sugar Hill, 1980. Very Good ...
Sure, it's not McDuff's funkiest record – but this is an excellent batch of smooth soulful tunes that show that McDuff was perfect in just about any setting! The core group on the set is Jack's Heatin' System ensemble – with Joe Farrell on saxes and Phil Upchurch on guitar – but ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Believe it or not, the track's a nice midtempo modern soul groover from The Moments – even though it's recorded after Ray, Goodman, and Brown left for Polygram, and Sugar Hill was holding onto the name with a different set of singers. The cut's got a beautiful sweet modern sound, and a sound ... (Soul) read more12-inch, Vinyl record
A soul group on the legendary hip hop label Sugar Hill Records – but one that shares lots of elements with the best acts from the old school too! On a label where most of the other artists were borrowing basslines and beats from funk records of the late 70s, Positive Force provide the real ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a cut corner, large name in marker on both sides, and some notes in pen on back.)
"We Got The Funk" is a tune that definitely earns its title – a classic bit of boogie – and one of the few really standout non-hip hop tracks from Sugar Hill back in the day! The tune's a killer all the way through – almost a hip hop groove at times, save for the vocals ... (Soul) read more12-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

Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first full albums from the Sugarhill Gang – and a good sampling of their early tracks for Sugarhill!

Super rare test press of the classic 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 ... (Hip Hop) read more12-inch, Vinyl record
(Test pressing in a Sugar Hill sleeve. Labels have a record pool stamp.)
The incredibly rare second album from Wood Brass & Steel – the mighty funk group we've loved for years for their landmark debut from the mid 70s!
