5.0 out of 5 stars love it love it love it, 18 Jun. 2002
By 
This review is from: Official Adventures of.... (Audio CD)
The seismic changes that created hip hop and rap are best heard in the context of a contemporary mix, and this album will have you on your feet instantly, wishing you'd been there when it first happened. A stellar collection, with few of the obvious choices; even Kraftwerk and YMO sound fresh in this context. And tracks such as Babe Ruth's "The Mexican" and Eddie Drennon's "Do What You Gotta Do" are fantastic discoveries, like superhits from a parallel universe. This album has the lot - soul, funk, r'n'b, hip hop, disco and rap - all in one beautifully melodic package.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old school hip hop for the congnescenti, 15 Mar. 2002

This review is from: Official Adventures of.... (Audio CD)
This album has been a long time coming. So many of the hits with GM Flash's name on the sleeve had nothing to do with him at all.
However, THIS release shows us how and why 1980's "...on the Wheels of Steel" mastermix came to be, and changed the world of music in the process. You can feel the stylus in the vinyl as you listen. You can imagine the records frantically being passed to Flash, as he cues up the next quick mix. Flash IS fast!
Buy this, and set the record straight (no pun intended)

5.0 out of 5 stars the best flash has done since wheels of steel, 10 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Official Adventures of.... (Audio CD)
this is what grandmaster flash is about block party hip hop the album has five tracks the dj originaly used in the 70s for his quick mix cutting up and scratching the breakbeats from funk,rock and disco including kraftwerk. The three tracks by flash is what he does best cut up records, these are the best flash has done since adventures on the wheels of steel.
