various / street sounds - Streetsounds Electro 1

As seen on TV!!!!! Back to 1983 when I was in my second year of senior school the drag grey days when i'd slog through my lessons i'd only holding on to reality by my much needed jaunts to central Manchester at weekends to spend my £5.00 pocket money on Spectrum cassette games and various tat. Then one day the Street Sounds Electro 1 LP was crazilly racked out at the front of the original HMV store on Market Street, Manchester bearing the price of £4.99. This defining moment has stayed with me upto today such was the impact when me and my friends heard it as soon as we got back home. Little did I know back then that in 2005 i'd have lost all those friends and i'd be here reviewing an american repress of the same album - life's crazy journey. This classic comp brought many old school classics to the kids back in the day, most famous being 'Jam On Revenge (The Wikki-Wikki Song)' by Newcleus (I actually at the time thought that the wikki-wikki vocals we supplied by friendly aliens rather than state of the art vocoders, I had a vivid imagination in my early teens) then Break Dance (Electric Boogie) by West Street Mob and the amazing 'Return Of Captain Rock' by of course Captain Rock. Hidden away are complete gems like G-Force's superb 'Feel The Force' (£50-£100 on e-bay if you are lucky enough to find one) and the political Reagan diss 'Ray-gun-omics' by Project Future. Can't forget the insane and superior pac-man hard vocoder jam by Bobby 'Enjoy' Robinson, another insane rare item in original form. All this mixed to pre school perfection by Herbie Mastermind. High quality repress with dubious legality of course. Tough card sleeve and a pressing even more superior to the original. A completely essential purchase even if you still have a battered up original copy. Remember. electro is aural sex.
