Thoughts Released (Revelation 1) - MC Mell'O'

Thoughts Released (Revelation 1)

MC Mell‘O’ is a UK hip-hop legend. The Battersea-born rapper first made his mark as part of several dance troupes throwing down in Covent Garden, prior to exploding into rhyme, initially as part of the Jus Badd crew. His steely presence secured a solo deal with Rough Trade's Republic imprint, Mell‘O’wasting little time in laying down a clear marker with 1989's super rare Comin' Correct EP. But that was the calm before the storm of his debut solo LP THOUGHTS RELEASED (REVELATION I) - a hugely accomplished set that still defines British hip-hop to this day. In a break from the norm, Mell‘O’ split the original vinyl LP into two distinct halves. The first catered directly to the straight- up rap fiend, yet Mell‘O’ showed another, more enduring dimension on the flip, peddling positivity by the pound. This expanded edition comes with 6 bonus tracks, including all 3 main features from Comin' Correct.

Killer Album
 Ruthless Rap Assassins broke the mould. They shifted the nucleus of UK rap away from the capital to their native Manchester, offering a thinking man's alternative to the indie-dance of Happy Mondays and Stone Roses. Their debut LP, KILLER ALBUM, reflected the black British experience in a unique, often poignant way. All the way live from the notorious North Hulme estate, the trio of Anderson, Carson and a pre- Black Grape Kermit eschewed the phony Brooklyn accents of many London contemporaries for a hard-bitten, sometimes bitter but always razor sharp trawl through the harsh realities of low-budget living packed with depth, humour and social comment. The 20th anniversary edition of KILLER ALBUM comes with extensive liner notes and rare photos. Our Price: £9.95

Organised Rhyme
MC Duke has always been a top-ranker. The self-styled 'English rasta' was first spotted by UK original Derek B, destroying all challengers at a London open-mic contest. And even though the verbal whirlwind didn’t have the obligatory demo tape to his name, he was fast-tracked into the studio by Music Of Life producer Simon Harris - a prescient bit of business that quickly yielded British rap's first essential long player. A funky time capsule of hip-hop circa 1989, this remastered and expanded edition of ORGANISED RHYME comes with no less than 7 bonus tracks, including a rare live freestyle and four brand spanking new tracks - ample proof that the fire still burns strongly in this irrepressible blue-blooded legend of British hip-hop. Our Price: £9.95
