CD Reviews

Takes you back to dawn of rap/break dancing
Shawn Chittle | New York, NY USA | 05/29/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a young city kid in the glory years of rap and break dancing (1983-1985), this recording takes me back to that era perfectly. The people at Rhino have brilliantly compiled a wide variety of classic, essential tunes. Upon hearing them again for the first time, you will smile, laugh, and most of all, groove out to these masters."Jam On It" with its "Superman" reference and famous "Chipmunk" voices, is probably the best known tune from this era and defined a sound. My personal favorite has to be the hypnotic "Egypt, Egypt" which in my opinion was the only song to do the "Egyptian" breakdance move of the time. Its super high-tempo blazing electronic hi-hat and flanged-out computer voice rap makes it an instant hit at any party I DJ at and always prompts the "Where can I get that record?" from the crowd. Other notables are "When I Hear Music" and "Let the Music Play" which was confused and actually crossed over as pop. This entire "Street Jams: Electric Funk" collection is worth owning. I recommened the box set for value, and if you want to know where the original, unsampled, origins of rap are, this is your collection."
Great songs!

"The CD I really wanted to get was Part 1, but the local record store was out so I bought this one instead. I really love this whole disc! There are so many good early dance, freestyle and hip-hop songs on here. My personal favorite is Debbie Deb's When I Hear Music, which is very very catchy. Egypt Egypt is another cool track. Even the more pop crossover songs like Connie's Funky Little Beat and Shannon's Let The Music Play sound good on here. This is the perfect background for a party or a dance. Of course, there aren't any exceptional lyrics or deeper meanings, but it is enjoyable none the less. I am so excited to buy Part 1 now! I would definately recommend this to anyone who likes to dance or just wants to hear some catchy music that hasn't been overplayed on the radio."
THIS IS WHAT STARTED IT ALL!

"For the "Little Rich Kid" review below, he should realize that the tracks on this CD is what started it all for Hip Hop. "Little Rich Kid" is probably one of those youngsters that THINKS drinking Jin & Juice and acting like a thug is Hip Hop!

I realize that this stuff might be outdated to you young folks, but you must realize that these were the pioneers of Hip Hop. The newer generation (25 & under) won't relate to it, but you should give it the respect it deserves."
