Format: Music CD, Def Jam Records. Rock music CD release from LL Cool J with the album Radio. Released on the label Def Jam Records. Hip-Hop music CD. This hard to find pre-owned music CD is fully guaranteed.
There are a few unmistakable footprints any fan of hip-hop can instantly recognise: the woodwind twist of Run DMC's "Peter Piper", Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick's "La Di Da Di", and the ferocious, burning, wax-and-metal battle cry of "LL Cool J is hard as hell!" on "Rock the Bells", from LL Cool J's 1986 debut, Radio. Although just a teenager at the time of this recording, LL booms with shocking authority on tracks like "I Can't Live Without My Radio" and "I Need a Beat". Rick Rubin completes the soundscape with Def Jam's early signature arena-rock guitar strangulations and mechanical drum fills. LL's bravado and vocal presence--despite the imperfect production on the CD and the juvenilia of "You Can't Dance" and "I Want You"--remain inescapable on Radio. --Todd Levin

I think it's fair to say that this is probably the first hip-hop album that was anywhere close to the mainstream that was able to stand on its own two feet. It set the blueprint for the next decade of hip-hop's development and stands as the first genuine classic album in hip-hop's cannon. It's a great shame that LL has never gone on to make anything that stands comparison to it... his gradual slide into R&B guest artist and so-so film appearances has not really done his talent justice... but for one album back in the 80s he stood like the gatekeeper to a great new wave of musical opportunities.
One of hip-hop's many great achievements has always been to invent new from old, to turn its listeners back to the music that it stemmed from, whether it is from samples, dj-ing or stolen phrases in the lyrics. It still uses those techniques today but it seems to me that the acknowledgement of the great music of the past, the music that helped shape the current output, is too often brushed aside.Read more ›
