As a dedicated mixtape head' love and hate this CD. Love it because it's packed full of golden-era goodness; hate it because they have records I want (yo''mma knock you fools out for those Sir Ibu and 360 singles!). The track listing is the main attraction here: rare cuts from the late '80s and early '90s, featuring artists like Chill Rob G, Doug E. Fresh and Nice & Smooth, plus a bunch of more obscure names. The mixing is very smooth, but both DJs wisely stand back from turntable trickery, letting these songs speak for themselves.
