Kurtis Blow – Kurtis Blow (1980-1998) (CD) (FLAC + 320 kbps)

1980, Kurtis Blow , , , 15.06.2016

Back in hip-hop’s old school era — roughly 1978-1982 — albums were the exception and not the rule. Hip-hop became a lot more album-minded with the rise of its second generation (Run-D.M.C., Whodini, the Fat Boys, among others) around 1983-1984, but in the beginning, many MCs recorded nothing but singles. Two exceptions were the Sugarhill Gang and Kurtis Blow, whose self-titled debut album of 1980 was among hip-hop’s first LPs and was the first rap album to come out on a major label. Thus, Kurtis Blow has serious historic value, although it is mildly uneven. Some of the tracks are superb, including “The Breaks” (a Top Five R&B smash in 1980) and “Rappin’ Blow, Part Two,” which is the second half of Blow’s 1979 debut single, “Christmas Rappin’.” And “Hard Times” is a forceful gem that finds Blow addressing social issues two years before Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five popularized sociopolitical rapping with 1982’s sobering “The Message.” Some of the other tracks, however, are decent but not remarkable. Switching from rapping to singing, Blow detours into Northern soul on the Chi-Lites-influenced ballad “All I Want in This World (Is to Find That Girl)” and arena rock on an unexpected cover of Bachman-Turner Overdrive’s “Takin’ Care of Business.” While those selections are likable and kind of interesting — how many other old school rappers attempted to sing soul, let alone arena rock? — the fact remains that rapping, not singing, is Blow’s strong point. And Mercury really screwed up by providing only the second half of “Christmas Rappin'”; that landmark single should have been heard in its entirety. But despite its flaws and shortcomings, Kurtis Blow is an important album that hip-hop historians should make a point of hearing. / Alex Henderson @ Allmusic/

Sugarhill Gang – Sugarhill Gang (UK Reissue CD) (1980-2002) (FLAC + 320 kbps)

1980, The Sugarhill Gang 13.11.2015

Alex Henderson@allmusic: ”Although the Sugarhill Gang didn’t invent hip-hop, they were the first rap act to have a huge international hit. Released in 1979, “Rapper’s Delight” was millions of listeners’ first exposure to hip-hop — before that, very few people outside of New York even knew what hip-hop was. the Sugarhill Gang were also among the first rap acts to record a full-length LP; when this self-titled debut album came out in 1980, the vast majority of old-school MCs were only providing 12″ singles. So The Sugarhill Gang is a historically important album even though it is a bit uneven. While “Rapper’s Delight” and “Rapper’s Reprise” (which features the Sequence, hip-hop’s first all-female group) are excellent, most of the material is merely decent. And the ironic thing is that half of the songs aren’t even rap. “Bad News Don’t Bother Me” and “Here I Am,” both of which find the Sugarhill Gang singing instead of rapping, are romantic R&B slow jams — and “Sugarhill Groove” is a sleek disco-funk number that hints at Roy Ayers. So this LP can hardly be called the work of hip-hop purists; in 1980, Sugarhill Records leader Sylvia Robinson (herself a veteran R&B singer) evidently felt that putting out an all-rap album would be risky. But, while The Sugarhill Gang isn’t a masterpiece, it’s still an album that hip-hop historians will find interesting.”
