Release Date:10/06/2009;Notes:UK double vinyl LP pressing. 2009 collection of ground-breaking early Hip Hop tracks, released to coincide with the 30th Anniversary of the release of the first Hip Hop singles. The music captured on those early records - by the Sugarhill Gang and the Fatback Band among others - was the result of a street level culture that had grown up in the wasteland of 1970s Bronx that had spread throughout New York's black communities. While MCs created the vocal hooks based on increasingly complicated rhymes, the musical beat was created by pioneering DJs cutting up old and new Funk and Soul records in ways that allowed them to play the bits of the records that the crowd responded and went wildest to. Super Breaks Back to the Old School gathers together some of the hottest tracks from those original block parties. 20 tracks BGP.;Track List:1. Funky President (People It's Bad) - James Brown;2.
