Notes

Copied from back of album jacket:

Hip House is now the most successful form of House. Because of this, everybody wants to take the credit for creating it.

When Fast Eddie's LP "Jack The Sound" came out in 1988, Hip house was born. Reviewed as "History In The Making: The Next Step In Music," Fast Eddie was able, in "Yo Yo Get Funky," to combine House and Hip Hop in a way that created a whole new style called Hip House. Tyree was right there to create the second Hip House record (Turn Up The Bass) when he invited Kool Rock Steady to rap on his new record, which went pop in the United Kingdom at #8.

Those who would try to take credit, remember this: The word "Hip House" was not used to label music until Eddie did it. He wanted to combine audiences of House and Hip Hop together. A rap on a House record does not make Hip House. The very first House records had rap on them in '84-'85. That, and the later recordings from England, are House raps. This is a compilation of the first and latest of Hip House.

Hip House:
A style that will be around a long time!

What a great rant on the sleeve! Sadly, the optimism at the end turned out to be more of an epitaph.
