Format: Audio CD
This release came at a time when much of the music that had been created in the early years of the 1980's, and given the name 'Electro-Funk' had been largely forgotten. It was kept alive, for the most part, by a relatively committed band of individuals who continued to collect the 12" singles which had steadily grown in value and rarity in the intervening years since their originally being released.

For most people in the United Kingdom, their first exposure to 'Electro Funk' would have differed greatly according to the particular area in which you lived. But despite the regional differences that existed in terms of exposure and the personalities involved, a unifying element was the 'Streetsounds Electro' compilations. These were the brainchild of Morghan Khan, and for a very reasonable sum of money they gave listeners the chance to listen to records which might not have ordinarily been available outside the confines of a specialist black music shop.

The original albums with their iconic art work gave many people their first taste of what was a predominantly black musical artform, and for many would have inspired the start of a life long long affair with Electro-Funk and Hip Hop (of which Electro-Funk was broadly a development).

Here then we have an album which features a number of iconic tracks from that period, many of which have featured on similar compilations. The difference here is that you get tracks which featured on the original 'Streetsounds Electro' compilations presented in their unedited and original mixes, on an album which obviously draws on that original heritage.

back in the early 1980s i was buying the original tape versions of all the electro/hip hop tapes and was always seen going to and from college with my twin deck stereo. i still have all of the streetsounds tapes although they are pretty much kept just for the antique value and not played much.

that said, i was happy to see that some of my altime favourate tracks have been re-released on this the only true electro cd out there. (there are others but, without the legendary yellow strip and black letters it just isnt the same. i was glad to see that the tracks were electro and not hip hop re-labeled as electro as this confuses the issue some what, as i always saw rap music more hip hop and the vocoder synthy sounds of say al naafysh as true electro. Yes i know newcleus raps on their jam on it classic but what i realy mean is artists like public enemy and the like are hip hop and not electro (not in any stretch of the imagination). all the tracks on this album will have the old school fans wishing that they could go out there with their various blasters and re-live the moment. for the late 30 somethings and 40 somethings this album is pure music nostalgia without a doubt.

the combination of classic 80s sounds and melodies with strange sci-fi voices largely created by the vocoder make this genre special. the stories told in the lyrics of dancing in space or just simply breaking to the beat seem to have largely gone now a days and have been replaced by more aggressive subjects. the innocence of the music and the promise of that kraftwerk based sound seemed to promise the listener with something cool to take out onto the street. now i guess the best we can do in an age of ipods is simply quietly listen to it at home.

Ok, first off, a previous reviewer mentioned that there was a break in the Cybotron "clear" track in which classical music plays for a brief second, they are right it does and it seems to fit in an Electro sort of way, so who knows it could be a bizarre addition to the track via a remix that none of us have heard before.

Anyway, I have wanted to buy this for my collection for years and finally I have acheived it and it is amazing, it was like buying the latest electro album for the first time back in the day. All the tracks are brilliant, including the West Street Mob, its all good. I have finally been able to listen to the Russell Brothers in an un-edited version. You may be able to tell that I am pleased with this purchase and I am. From the get go its a good selection of some really bold tracks, classics if you will and my only hope is that the Street sounds family deem it fit to release a Volume 2.

Yes its expensive for a used album but you are not going to get these tracks anywhere else, buy it, listen to it, love it and play it again......one for the treble two for the base come on Davy D lets rock this place.....
