Here's the album to turn your musical hero's into zero's. Whether it's Fat Boy Slim's "Praise You" or De La Soul's "3 its the magic number" or Salt n Pepa's "It's Your Thang". This album has the ORIGINAL recordings from which all the classic cuts where taken. Its a real winner and guaranteed to be in the top 10 of anyones collection. You are seriously missing out if you don't buy this album!

Without any doubt this is a fine compilation of some truly outstanding tracks, if you've got your funk on then you will be well served by most of what's on offer here. Rock creek park (in particular) is a soul-funk anthem of legendary status, and the detroit emeralds (baby let me take you) are a much underrated outfit capable of superbly laid back grooves and pleasing ,mellow vocals. I only missed out giving a 5 star rating simply because this kind of compilation (nearly!) always has to compromise somewhere-filler this baby!-for whatever reason..

However, one mans(or wo-mans) filler is anothers class track. Well worth shelling out on

Back around the turn of the millennium there was a great deal of collections – such as Sampled and Back to Breaks: the True Sounds from the Original Block Parties - that celebrated hip hop and electronic music artists widespread ransacking of 1960s and 1970s funk, soul, and jazz tracks, for suitable break beats and samples. Quite understandably there was a lot of duplication between their respective track-listings. Super Breaks has that issue too. But just because it isn’t the first – or, indeed, the last - compilation to feature S.O.U.L.’s ‘Burning Spear’ doesn’t mean that it isn’t often entertaining. It features some superb original recordings that have been like a siren call to those who like to sample like Isaac Hayes ‘Ike’s Mood’, The Emotions’ ‘Blind Alley’, Syl Johnson’s ‘Different Strokes’, and The Blackbyrds’ ‘Rock Creek Park’.

However it isn’t made explicitly clear who Super Breaks target audience is. In the 8 page booklet that accompanies this 20 track CD there is introductory history by Dean Rudland that concentrates solely on the hip hop genre’s use of breaks and samples, yet by the time of the song-by-song sleeve-notes he has moved from the block party to the dancefloor, with namechecks for the likes of Bjork, The Chemical Brothers, ETA, Fatboy Slim, David Holmes, and Portishead. That lack of clarity is reflected in the occasionally loose selection policy. Jackie Wilson’s take on The Doors’ rousing ‘Light My Fire’ is picked despite the fact that Above The Law and De La Soul utilised Erma Franklin and Young Holt Trio’s versions, and though The Counts’ ‘Thinking Single’ does indeed have a blistering funk groove, it hasn’t actually been all that widely sampled.
