MC Drew - Take No Prisoners


Brilliant record this, thumpin' 808 bass on the A-side but the B-side, 'Big Nuts' is a bit of a let down. I don't know about you but the records from this era I heard as a kid are nearly all classics in my mind and almost all the ones that passed me by as a kid I find difficult to listen to even though I know if I had heard them back then they would also be considered classics, if you get me. For instance, I had 'Bad Boys' on just a few days ago and the missus heard it and said, 'Inspector gadget? What the heck is that?' and I had to try and explain it and struggled a little but I still think it's a fresh jam. However I had to ask myself if I would think it was dope if I'd never heard it in '85 or '86 or whenever it came out? The answer would be probably not but this one is an exception to that rule. 'I'm The Packman' by The Packman is another pretty odd record that I would certainly give the elbow today had I not been alive and well and b boying my best in '83. Enjoy this one though if you've not heard it 'cos it'll knock your socks off.

Any chance of a re-up on the amazing Davy DMX?

thanks for the review...
I thought this record was dead and buried... wow..

Dead and buried for some only. We have to try and keep stuff like this alive to show the new cats how it used to be and still should be! You have any unreleased stuff per chance? Thanks for the comment MC Drew.
