Get out Da Bomb Box and put on ya BK's This is classic Hip
Mike | 05/12/2006

"I first heard this album was in 88 when it fist came out I was like 12 or 13 at the time. I dubbed a copy from my cousin and I played it so much that the taped poped. The last time I can remember hearing it was in late 89 early 90. I feel the same way about this album now as I did then. Doug was on point with his ryming for the era of this album and is a MUST BUY every Old School Hip Hop artafacts library.This album got much respect on the streets back then, and it still does from me"
When Rappers Actually Had Skillz

"Doug E. Fresh is definitely one of the pioneers of hip hop but also of party hip hop. From that Genre with the exception of Biz Markie and Heavy D and Kid and Play, nobody had dance floors packed like Doug E. Fresh.

The Show & La Di Da Di (with Slick Rick) has to be one of the top 5 greatest rap/party singles ever release on wax hands down. And just when you think there was no way Doug E. Fresh could ever top "The Show" then the single "Keep Rising To The Top" came later on and had the Summer of 88 on pure lockdown.

This album is particularly memorable for me being that I live in the D.C. area and Doug E. Fresh was one of the first, if not the first hip hop artist to record live with a D.C. Go-Go Band when he recorded "I'm Getting Ready" w/D.C.'s own Rare Essence which was a smash in the Choco City and the rest of East Coast. That single is also on this album along with one of my favorite Doug E Fresh joints, "D.E.F.=Doug E. Fresh". "Cut That Zero" was a head knocker in which he sample Levert's "Cassanova" and reportedly got in a lot of legal trouble for sampling it without permission. I still think the "All The Way To Heaven" Lp is slightly better but there isn't a bad Doug E Fresh Album from back then anyway so it's all good. I'd wish they'd release a real Doug E. Fresh greatest hits joint and give him his just due like they do all the other artist who helped pave the way cuz Doug E. definitely put his work in and paid his dues."
No "The Show"

"I bought this CD before Amazon listed the tracks and was disappointed it did not contain the song "The Show". I did locate "The Show" on Old School Jams Volume 3 in case others are looking for that song."
