An immense, essential, authoritative compilation of hip-hop's founders, that spans two CDs with the genre's founding tracks. It starts off with the most important: the Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight", a reconstruction of Chic's "Good Times" that is widely credited as the first commercially available hip-hop track (previously, the music had been confined to bootleg tapes and wild New York parties). The Sugarhill Gang, as explained by this album's excellent sleeve notes, were an artificial creation, kind of like a hip Monkees, used to exploit the potential of the leading label, Sugar Hill Records. As a result, none of the rest of their CD meets the same heights. Grandmaster Flash's Furious Five joined the Sugar Hill label, and released a stream of classics: "The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on The Wheels of Steel" (the track that samples Blondie and Chic), "The Message" and "White Lines (Don't Do It)". --Charlie Porter

I bought this thinking that I'd get a definitive collection of the best work by these two great artists. It's not that the songs aren't great, it's just that the production of this compilation is atrocious. Several of the Flash tracks are cut short, "Pump me up" even just stops abruptly not even half way through. No doubt this has been done to cram them all on one of the discs. If you're after a collection by Flash, buy one of the others instead.
