GrandmasterFlash & The FuriousFive —
Message ... LP Sugar Hill, 1982. New Copy (reissue)...
The classic debut album by GrandmasterFlash & The FuriousFive – 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 down under Sylvia Robinson's watchful eye by the Sugar Hill rhythm section with Doug Wimbish, Skip McDonald, Keith LeBlanc and crew. That funky depth keeps it fresh to this today, with deeper classics like "Scorpio" and "It's Nasty", plus "Dreamin", "It's A Shame" and "You Are". LP, Vinyl record album
Fantastic! We can remember when this one came out – an early "scratch" record with loads of tricks on the turntable, and a collage of early break records – the first commercial cut and paste track that really put the block party DJ style on the map, a landmark moment in modern music! Just as mindblowing now as it was then, proof that sometimes simplicity trumps trickery! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Crucial electro from Flash & crew, with vocoder raps and the whole nine! 12-inch, Vinyl record

GrandmasterFlash's late effort, circa '86 – after disbanding the FuriousFive – though Rahiem & Kid Creole appear along with a number of other rappers!

"Ms. Thang", "Throwin' Down", "PLU (Peace, Love and Unity)", "Freelance" and "Fastest Man Alive". LP, Vinyl record album
