5.0 out of 5 stars Something for everybody
Consisting of 55 chronologically ordered tracks across three CDs and a fourth disc featuring a 60 minute mix by Grandmaster Flash, this collection represents excellent value for money and it's more or less a definitive history of hip-hop. Given that it's aimed at the mass market there are loads of mainstream crowd pleasers but there are also a lot of lesser known gems...

Best of the tracks are mainly on 1 album as with most compilations but it's all a matter of taste.

This review is from: The Grandmaster Flash Collection (Audio CD)
Consisting of 55 chronologically ordered tracks across three CDs and a fourth disc featuring a 60 minute mix by Grandmaster Flash, this collection represents excellent value for money and it's more or less a definitive history of hip-hop. Given that it's aimed at the mass market there are loads of mainstream crowd pleasers but there are also a lot of lesser known gems. The first disc is full of old school hip-hop classics (A Tribe Called Quest, N.W.A, Eric B & Rakim, etc.) and it's the best here - the beats and the clever use of samples are at times jaw-dropping. Grandmaster's mix is nothing particularly special but for the money, you can't complain too much. Clocking in at a few minutes short of a mammoth 5 hours, it’s housed in a neat triple gatefold digipak. Existing hip-hop fans and newcomers will find much to enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Covers each era but has a few artists I'd never heard of until now - but all makes for a great playlist!, 18 Aug. 2014
This review is from: The Grandmaster Flash Collection (Audio CD)
Cracking hip-hop retrospective, from the legend that is. Covers each era but has a few artists I'd never heard of until now - but all makes for a great playlist!

Bought this for my husband as most of the tracks remind him of his miss spent youth !
He loves it, plenty of classics and a few we didn't know but are just as good
Great for in the car and reminiscing :)

Fantastic collection of hip hop music, including some all time classics and some lesser known tracks. Perfect for someone who wants to get into hip-hop music and wants a way to get a taste for the genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underground Tunes!, 5 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Grandmaster Flash Collection (Audio CD)
Good but not enough old school hip hop or electro for me but did like the underground tunes that I had not heard before,
with a good DJ mix to finish it off! I hope he does a follow up!!
