Last Sunday i got up quite early , which is not very usual for me, because there was the Record Fair in town. I managed to find some bootlegs of super rare old school records. I’ll be honest with you don’t mind a bootleg , especially because the originals of these precious things go for thousands dollarspounds, and i still need to pay the rent!
Anyway i found these three amazing records:
Family Four – Rap attack
Grand Wizard Theodore – Can i get a soul clapp
Live convention 82
God, i was 6 years old when this stuff came out, but to me it still sounds fresh and amazing.
Well, today i’m going to post about the Live convention 82, which is a record that was made out of mixtape and was put out by Johnny Soul (R.i.p) Disco Wax label and features DJ Grand Wizard Theodore alongside rappers Waterbed Kev, Master Rob, Dot-A-Rock, Prince Whipper Whip and Ruby Dee, with Kool Moe Dee and Busy Bee.
There are so many samples taken from this recording (“Puertorico..oohh ohh” made famous by Frankie Cutlass, “this is a recording, this is a recording”…and many others) and DJ Grand Wizard Theodore cuts up classic breaks like “Do the funky penguin” and “Assembly line”: this is pure dopeness!!
i put it in two parts as the vinyl is and i hope you enjoy it !!!!
