5.0 out of 5 stars Paradigm 9 Feb 2013
Format:Vinyl
Music was pretty bad before punk and disco blew away the "concept" album and 10 minute drum solos "performed" by musical poindexters who grew their hair long for "cred" and practiced and practiced while mom made them a peanut butter and spreadable marshmallow stuff sandwich with the crusts cut off and practiced more and pressed their noses against the window watching kids practice tackles and cheerleading and hang out in the front yard. "B-b-b-but they can't play their instruments! They're just talking over a Chic record! Am I the only one who notices this?! I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!! I can play the guitar and harmonica at the same time! The same time!! With cymbals between my knees!! Moommm!!!"
"Now you sit down and practice your lessons with earnest right this instant mister. Your father and I pay good money for your fancy instruments and expensive lessons so you don't have to compete in other areas on an equal playing field with kids that have more natural talent and make everything seem so... effortless. Damn you kids! Get off my yard!!!"

Cheers to the feel good hit that defined a generation.

In this album there are new up and comin artists testing the field of this type of music but there also the clasic artists to add as a guidline for those up and comming artists. This is one to buy if you are a big fan of the old school music or if you want to see what the music is like. If you are a first time listener this is a good beginning album to appreciate the music artists and the content of the music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely loved from 1st time I heard it in 1980 30 April 1999
By dmeyers@wvi.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have never really been a big fan of Rap, but in this case, it's the best. Back in 1980, I was working at a roller skating rink as a floor guard, the first time I heard Rappers Delight. When the song started, everyone went out on the floor and just started jamming. My sincere opinion of the song is, "IT'S A MUST HAVE ALBUM" in everyones music library.**********************

5.0 out of 5 stars After 20 years, they never stop entertaining us. . . 25 Dec 2001
By M. Kroll - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Sugarhill Gang, the ultimate in the "roots of Rap and Hip-Hop" take us back to when it all begin with this exhilerating anthology of their songs. From the traditional "Rapper's Delight" to other classics such as "Apache", to collaborations featuring the groups of the day, such as the Sequence, this album combines it all. No other anthology can take us through the roots of such a relatively new genre in music. This album will entertain even the most hardcore rap enthusiast, for it is the core of their dogma.
1.0 out of 5 stars Quite Disappointed! 25 Dec 2013
By Twauna Waters - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I expected the original version without all of the extra sound effects that take away from their art. I still want the original version. This was a great part of my early teenage years and I like to share it with my students in 7th/8th grade. What youth are listening to today is quite disturbing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trendsetter 17 May 2005
By Gary Selikow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As one of the first rap songs , Rapper's Delight(1979) has a very definite place in music history. to say it was a trendsetter is an understatement. If you think of it subsequent rap was a crib on this song. It is one of the very few rap songs that I like.

And unlike so much of today's rap it has nothing dirty or violent in it , just a lot of funky fun. It brings back so many memories to lovers of the early 80's disco period. Just hearing the cool beat makes you want to get down and jam :

"see i am wonder mike and i like to say hello

to the black, to the white, the red, and the brown, the purple and yellow".

Some parts of the long rap song are really humorous and make you laugh ,others are just mellow and make you groove. But you will love every minute of it. I love it for the nostalgia value. Bring back 1979 NOW!
