Mojo Magazine - The Roots Of Hip-Hop

While I don't always find these "Roots Of" discs to be commendable or complete, I am almost always impressed with the folks at Mojo Magazine. This contains some great old funk and rap joints for your ears and leads DaddyRich to believe that he should make his own 'roots of hip-hop series' - food for thought. Great oldies from Flash, Lee Dorsey ("Everything I do gon' be funky..."), James Brown and some strange inclusions like Blood, Sweat & Tears (WTF?) make this a nice little nugget for your collection.

01 Grandmaster Flash The Adventures Of Grandmaster Flash On The Wheels Of Steel
02 Lee Dorsey Get Out Of My Life Woman
03 Lowell Fulson Tramp
04 Rufus Thomas Itch & Scratch (Part 1)
05 Bar-Kays In The Whole
06 Mad Lads, The No Strings Attached
07 James Brown Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose
08 Blood, Sweat And Tears Lucretia Mac Evil
09 J.B.'s, The The Grunt (Parts 1 & 2)
10 Dramatics, The Get Up & Get Down
11 Al Green Here I Am (Come & Take Me)
12 Flaming Ember Gotta Get Away
13 Jimmy Castor Bunch, The It's Just Begun
14 Kool & The Gang NT
15 Cymande Bra
16 Parliament Flash Light
17 Fatback King Tim III (Personality Jock)

Boy, should you EVER do some compilations of your take on hip-hop's roots. Put that knowledge to some educational use.
