Suggestion Of The Week - 45 Brothers - Showtime / The Zone

This is good. Some nice instrumental pressure from that London. 200 pressed up and as you can see mine's a respectable number 102. See below for details on obtaining a copy for yourself.

The Rapologists - The Hip Hop Beat

Ok, so you've all heard this one before but I feel I have a real connection to this record. Maybe it's the year hip hop music really took a form hold of me and I left all the punk and pop music behind. Maybe it's because it's a UK hip hop record although that wasn't a factor at the time. Maybe it's because I personally considered it to be the best cut on the streetsounds UK electro compilation. Or maybe it's because it's just a good record, period.
 I got mine from Beat Street records around 1987/88 I think and as you can see it's the US promo copy which I would say is a pretty scarce rekkid nowadays. It's exactly the same as the UK release on Billy Boy and I wouldn't be bothered either way I don't think but it's a nice addition if you can find one.
 If you've not heard it for a while give it another listen and depending on how old you are (feel) it might be the nostalgia injection you've been after.
