Rough guide to electro

I have prepared the john//peanut rough guide to early
80's Electro/Hip Hop & Rap, hardly definitive (for that, may I recommend
Freddy Fresh's "The Rap Records" available at not many bookstores, but
essential reading), but 50 records that did it for us young
impressionable breakers back in the day.

As with any list I ever make, it would probably look completely
different if I did it in 10 minutes time, such is life. In fact, if I
did it now, I'd need to find a home for Mixmaster Gee and the Turntable
Orchestra "Like This". (sigh)
