Ultramagnetic MCs – Critical Beatdown (FFRR 828137.1) (1988)

This consistently good record isn’t quite as novel as generally more lauded “Golden Age of Hip Hop” Lps by De La Soul, PE, Pete Rock, Gang Starr, etc. It might be a sign of my age that I tend these days not to listen to any Hip Hop recorded after ’97 (the early Rawkus Records stuff being my cut-off point)–or, more likely, that Hip Hop, like rock & roll, psychedelia, boogie-woogie, free jazz and other popular music sub-genres, had a certain shelf-life, which expired around that time. Discuss.

Another excellent find in Hythe, this time at the bootfair on the green
