Dooley-O Watch My Moves

A few less-than-stellar rhyming moments can't overshadow how important-and good-this album is. Breakbeat legend and erstwhile Stezo producer Dooley recorded it back in the late '80s, and as a production showcase, it's fantastic. Dooley was touching some amazing grooves before other folks made them famous-witness the title track, the first ever usage of the legendary Skull Snaps break even before Stezo jacked it for "It's My Turn," for example. The overall feel here is straight '88, from the big chunks of funk to the party/braggadocious rhymes. If you want to hear beats the way they ought to be done, you better not sleep on this release.
