Captain Rock

Real Name:
Ronald Wayne Greene
Profile:
The Captain, a mainstay of the NIA label, has rocked it with three all-time classic cuts: the George Clinton-esque "Cosmic Blast", "To the Future Shock" and "Return Of Captain Rock". His other releases include "You Stink" and "Bongo Beats" which were more straight up rap cuts in comparison with his other electro tracks, and his debut "Cosmic Glide" which was more on the pre-electro disco-funk rap tip popular before Planet Rock changed everything. One of the great showmen of Hip Hop, as happy on stage as he is in the studio, Captain Rock surely rocked the house with his live performance on UK Fresh 86.

You can now get the LP on bandcamp. However the recording appears to be as flat as the CD version that was released.
Such a shame that this hasn't had a remaster or something , the tunes are GOLD ! GO the Aleems ,, who's other gems are also
MIA ( rather than on NIA ;-) )
