Biggest load of novelty tosh ever on the main side and Camp-Hop on side B. Never liked this overplayed, overrated piece of crap. Boring beats/rhythm, boring lyrics, boring rap. I hated Inspector Gadget and the theme which was used for the main hook of this tune. Even the beatboxing was overrated. Wasn't a big fan of beatboxing, very rarely did it sound like real drums or drum machine sounds anyway.

Fresh's previous two releases were much better, although not faves of mine not in the slightest. At the time, this was a turning point for hip hop and definitely not a good one as far as I was concerned as it encouraged even more crap farty, burping, grunting sounding beatboxing. There were fresher sounding rhythms bellowing and bleating out from my local pet zoo or farmyard FFS :(

My release on the runout has P(?) D-242-A-1 Trutone Dist Labs - P9 7 -85 that is for side A. The same is on the run out on side B except for D-242-B-2 on the Records number. The release info for this doesn't have this runout info.Does anyone have the same runout and is the reissue the only one that carried the Sexually Explicit Lyrics Warning on side B. Thanks

Hola, el numero de referencia de este disco esta mal, es este: CHST-2958 , le sobra una "C". Por favor que alguien lo revise, gracias. /// Hello, the reference number of the disc is wrong, is this: CHST-2958, to spare a "C". Please someone check it, thank you.

To tell this OG from the slightly later '85 reissue, note the B-side- 'WARNING Sexually explicit lyrics' is printed to the right hand side- it is printed centrally & at the bottom on the repress. And, I almost forgot, what a tune from Doug, such a talent & so young at the time- memories!

From looking at the label Logo's it would seem that the Label without the record would be the first pressing, as all previous records on this label, didn't have the record on the logo either but all subsequent releases seem to have it, so this record must have been the transitional release for the Logo.
