Another South Florida banger! The perfect follow up to "Raiders Of The Lost Groove." Everyone should have a copy of this record.

Do all of you knew that Mario "T" is only an invention of James McCauley aka Dxj ?
It was him personally rappin' on "Strikin Back" together with Mitch Cason.
For your info, the Rapper with the higher voice was Dxj aka Mario "T".
So you can see that a white guy (scottish/irish/greek/german) was able to bust rhymes also in the Old School.
Great track in every case, I am sure that not everybody knew that one of the Rappers was Dxj personally.
The Rap on the flipside is done by Palmerforce Two, but I allready wrote a review for the 12inch of "Raiders of the lost Groove", you can check it out if you want.
in any case a very collectable record.
For your info, 15 years ago it was a nearly impossible to find record, we only knew it from the "Early Maggots" sampler....It was a big party when I have found it the first time beginning of the 90's.
Peace
