Futuristic music that still sounds ahead of the game today. Will Beat Bop ever be bettered? Fabulous selection, pretty faultless.
I like this era of electro much better then when the hip hop started kicking in.

I remember getting a cassette copy of this when it first came out. The first two tracks by the B-Boys were way ahead of anything I had heard in Europe at that time in 1983, there was Kraftwerk and that was about it. The new use of electronics in this genre was so refreshing and different from what was going on in the UK commercial charts. This album took me off into the world of underground electronic music, away from all that was commercial. The stand out track on this compilation was definitely Al-Naafiysh which set quite a standard in the Electro genre. I think we have to thank Morgan Khan for introducing the Electro underground to a world of people who would never have got into this style of music. UK Fresh ’86 – who else was there? Great music….

I concour with the above review completely. I have been selling records in the Midlands for over a decade & have watched the Hard To Find empire grow from a small one person outfit into one of the biggest new & used vinyl Emporiums in the world. One thing that really bothers me though is the shoddy self pressed efforts that they release. I have heard countless tales from customers buying a bootleg from them that sounds like it was recorded from a tape. My favourite story however is the shocking tale regarding the first Prodigy EP. Having had the item myself I was shocked to see it listed on their site for £40! Now don't get me wrong the pressing was great on this (As it wasn't pressed by HTFR but by another Midlands outfit.)but to sell it as a collector's item original pressing is just wrong. For a start the label print was blurred. I saw copies of the same disc for sale everywhere else for £7.95! Please people do NOT buy their bootlegs unless you desperate. Also stealing peoples work & music is not nice! Their own pressings are terrible & should be avoided at all costs.

Sadly, this cd (and I assume this applies to the other cds of this series of the unofficial Street Sounds Electro releases on Hard To Find Records also) is a rather effortlessly produced vinyl-to-cd transfer without bothering of eliminating any vinyl noise. In fact the producers of this cd must have used a vinyl copy that was worse than my own original 1984 lp - the noises, pops and crackles are so predominant that at times they distract you from the brilliant mix.
When originally buying this cd via ebay I was hoping for a nice cd-transfer from the original mastertapes to get a noise-free version of this lp. So before you consider buying this cd you'd better think twice - if you own the original vinyl you can probably get a better result with trying your own vinyl-to-cd transfer via your pc and a standard sound editing program.

this is the best S.S.E. to me: The B Boys are just warming up, the Electro ballad from Xena is some kind of superb, Hashim is still a must. "Beat Bop" is a classic in Electro-based , psychedelic HipHop, Rammellzee's voice is reeaally cool. Grandmaster Flash is the last highlight.
