It's not quite the first rap record, or the best, but Rapper's Delight--15 glorious minutes of the bass line from Chic's "Good Times", with a New Jersey crew spieling goofy routines about Superman and bad food on top--is one king hell of a party-starter. After that, they could have filled the rest of the disc with crowd noise and gotten away with it, but the Sugarhill Gang had a bunch of other party-jam hits, notably the almost-as-indelible "Apache" and "8th Wonder". Those songs show up here too, along with some entertaining non-hits and "Showdown", their rap-off with the Furious Five. What they're saying isn't really the point; the point is to move the crowd, and they're still hip-hop's greatest entertainers. --Douglas Wolk

I was listening to this album last week and the music kept me moving. You don't SIT in your chair, you DANCE, ;-)

Really love Apache and Hot Hot Summer Day. The latter one I found in a bargain bin when we were all still using vinyl. Haven't a clue what made me pick it up but as soon as I got it on the turntable, I loved it. The album features a long version of Rapper's Delight. It's the first time I've ever heard it. You know when you hear different versions of the 7" single cuts? Well, all those are included in this big recording. And it is huge - 14-and-a-bit minutes of it. I mean, you what!!!

I've still to play that on my radio station, ;-) I will be doing that. Lovely album.

This is a great mixture of amazing dance tunes with good rap lyrics. With one of the best hip-hop songs of all time in "Rappers delight" this album is a must have for anyone who wants a good dance album to listen to, who also likes their rap!
