Mixing Bullets and Firing Joints

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Part of the exhaustive Salsoul reissue campaign undertaken by the U.K.'s Suss'd label in the early 2000s, Mixing Bullets and Firing Joints is the same exact release as Salsoul Jam 2000 released in 1997 by Believe in Music, only with a different title and much more attractive artwork.

This might not be revelatory for seasoned Salsoul fans, but they can surely appreciate Flash's interpretation of the label's catalog for those who aren't as clued-in. Credit is also due to this DJ for continuing to remind everyone about the deep connection between disco and hip-hop.
