The first ever CD issue of
the classic debut album by arguably the most recognisable B-Boy /
Breakdancing acts ever. Originally released in 1984, Ready For Battle contains
the smash hit single ‘(Hey You) The Rock Steady Crew’ – (UK #6) and follow-up
electro B-Boy classics ‘Uprock’ and ‘She’s Fresh’.

“Ready For
Battle” was one of the first albums to be produced and co-written by the
legendary producer Stephen Hague who went on to work with the Pet Shop Boys,
Jimmy Somerville, Erasure, Holly Johnson, OMD and many, many more.

  

This special 2-disc
collector’s edition contains the full original 7 track album as well as all the
associated single edit, remix and instrumental variants that were issued at the
time, making this a definitive and comprehensive collection of all the
recordings made by the Rock Steady Crew at the height of their music career.
Also includes extensive sleeve-notes and a full colour 16 page booklet.

Also included is a DVD
containing the 2 existing original promotional videos that showcase all the
famous breakdance moves that the Rock Steady Crew were famous for – the first
act to take breakdance crew battles off the streets of New York and into
the commercial mainstream!

Press:-

“Early exponents of
the ‘turtle’, ‘spider’ and ‘coffee grinder’, South Bronx breakdance posse Rock
Steady Crew remain best known for their brief incarnation as a six-piece rap
act. (3/5*)

Rupert Howe (Q Magazine, August 2012)

Lino acrobatics were their forte, not droppin’ science, but this pop-electro is still fresh”. 3/5* (MOJO, August 2012)
