  • happy birthday Rappers Delight

    35 years old apparently. Meant so much to me at the time and still does now.

    I saw the sugarhill gang about 10-12 years ago, they did a 'history of rap' where they played stuff like white lines and other big tunes from 'back in the day'. I say played it was more rapping over backing tracks but It was quite enjoyable and they were fantastic if ever so slightly more rotund than they once were and of course they ended on 'Rappers Delight' which made every one go a bit bonkers.

      You mean they didn't play any of their other big hits? Ha ha.

      I'm sure you all know, but Ed Piskor's Hip Hop Family Tree deals with all the Caz/Hank/Sylvia Robinson stuff beautifully. Vol 2 has just come out, and it's a cracker. Can't wait for Vol 3.

          Ha, yes.

          Just realised I really like 'Kick It Live from 9 to 5". In fact, I like a lot of past it's sell-by-date Sugarhill stuff, due to having that 'Rapped Uptight' vol 2 comp on permanent repeat as a teenager.

            Was kind of like the hip hop equivalent of T'pau playing selected hits of the 80s + China in your Hand at Butlins.
