Personally speaking I don't know why now this isn't classed as a compilation lp because its essentially Malcom Maclaren compiling a bunch of black music together with a little of his own input.
However it's definitely the record that introduced the world to hip hop a then very small USA growing scene with Buffalo Gals.

The lp itself is not just hip hop but a wider range of black music styles. A Maclaren heist or a stroke of genius I'll let you decide.

The lp still stands the test of time as an introduction to what we could say now is World music.

I loved this album back in ‘83 and still do in 2019. It was unexpected, singular and a truly interesting piece of work. A real snap shot of what was possible in the early 80s. I may have could have done without Duck for the Oyster but regardless charms abound.

Very much like marmite...
You either love it or hate it...
I love marmite but cannot stomach this lp...
Why was it called Duck Rock? A pretty lame title...
Overall the lp is pretty terrible!
Now I loved some of the 12"s from World Famous Supreme Team i.e. Buffalo Gals etc but just never ever felt this lp what so ever..
But I will give it top marks for the cover by Dondi ! And the inner sleeve art work By Keith Haring RIP to both of these talented artists.

the l.p that made me want to buy a pair of decks and a mixer...I was only a tot when this came out but my mum used to play it loads....McLaren was of course a major arsehole who often took credit for things he shouldn't of....but all that aside this is a fantastic record made for dancing....combine this with the records The Clash were making at roughly the same time to gain a snapshot of Hip-Hop as seen through Birttish musical innovators eyes just as Hip Hop was taking its first steps out from the bock parties and into the clubs....
