The Best of Sugar Hill Records

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
If Rhino's massive five-disc summation of the crucial old-school label Sugar Hill makes you cringe, this single-disc set is a much better distillation of the label and the period than much else out there. It covers the three tracks that are hands-down classics -- "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugarhill Gang plus "The Message" and "White Lines" by Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five. In addition, there are at least a half-dozen minor standouts like the Sugarhill Gang's "8th Wonder" and "Apache," the Funky 4 + 1's "That's the Joint," Kevie Kev's "All Night Long Waterbed," and Grandmaster Flash's "Scorpio" and "New York New York."
