whats your most prize tune in EACH DIFFERENT STYLE!

Postby Jack Johnson » Fri Jan 14, 2005 1:35 pm

It's friday, I'm bored at work and so I'm donning my anorak once more....
Following from the other thread, it's too hard to pick one tune (although i did) so how about one tune for each style you check for? should make a longer thread anyway....

Revive - Pick it up - Ernest Wilson - Fab blank 7"
Rocksteady - Hurting Inside - Wailers - Tuff Gong 7" (1st cut)
Ska - Man in the street - Don Drummond - Coxsone 7"
Early Roots - Let's Make Love - Dynamic Four - Faze Four 7"
Late 70's Roots - Down in the bottom of the well - Jah Mikes - Jah Mikes 7"
Early 80's Roots - Vives - Dandy Lion - Kulumi 7"
80's Digital - Youths of today - White Mice - Intellitec 7"
90's Digital - Hot Stepping - Yami Bolo - Digital B 7"
00's Digital - Strive - Luciano - Addis 7"
Hip Hop - Warm it up Kane - Big Daddy Kane - Test press 12"
Hip Hop / Ragga - Suicidal Murder - Jeru / Bounty Killer - Massive B 12"
Mashup - No Diggety - Black Street - JSTAR 7"
Old Skool House - Jay Dee - Plastic Dreams - ? the horsey label (gone!)
Bashment - The Return - Baby Cham - Mad House 7"
Pop - Living on the front line - Eddy Grant (don't laugh...brings back
memories!!) possibly the only decent pop tune ever.

Now that's exhaustive. Your turn!

Now that takes me back!

I still think Cowgirl by Underworld is the best. Still sounds hard-edged (and easy to beat mix too).

Did you ever hear 'Panoramic Shuffle' by 'Deep Piece'. Its a little more recent than the ones in your ten but it is (to use a phrase common at the time) wicked!

I always used to go mad for this one too:

You know the score in '94
HARD CORE!

Never heard that one as far as i know, B but was probably a little the worse for wear to catch any tune details at the time :twisted: ha ha.... probably heard it in my sub conscious once! So you were still raving when hardcore hit! that's a whole 'nother top 100 itself but i do find it all tends to sound a bit crap these days, unlike the classics from late 80's. How about "Mr kirks nightmare"? ORIGINAL DARK SIDE!!! I was practically a kid when that came out and we LOVED it! ahhh, misguided youth..... "Mr kirk, you'd better come down to the station house, your son is dead"..... what the fxxx were we on? actually, don't answer that.... :oops:

Apart from Songbook my other prized items are:

Soul: Complete Stax/Volt Singles Box Set Vol 1. First ever serious collection of soul that I got like this, plus my late Mum gave me some money towards buying it after a decent win on the bingo!

Hip Hop: Rampage - EPMD 12", was a present from a woman I was with then, ain't seen her since 1992 but those were good times....

Respect

Renegade Soundwave!! :D aah memories!! :D

Their first 12" Kray Twins was particularly twisted, also love their later lp 'How You Doin?' a dance concept lp...almost!

and who can forget Shut Up & Dance, they were another pair of hilarious and weird geezers!

Great stuff... 8)

gordon,

did you know Bill who used to own the little hip hop room in Looney Tunes / Bass Generator and then a little shop called Jams across the road from where Flip American clothing used to be?

used to get me fix of hip hop from him all the time as a kid.

he always had the latest hip hop 12s and lps and was a nice bloke to boot.

Didn't go into Bass Generator much mate but remember Jams, just around the corner from Chinatown.

I bought most of my tunes at Hitsville USA when it used to be up the stairs in the square, run by that woman who looked like Pat Butcher.

Respect

I used to go to their shop on Saville Row (?) round the corner from HMV on Northumberland street.

Every Monday all the latest 12s for 99p.
