      Essential for all fans of 80’s Electro and Worth the purchase price for ‘Girls’ alone!

        Listening to this album again I can hear a LOT of what inspired Autechre. Dope.

          Some of these comments, wow. So in the east it was Afrika Bambaataa and in the west it was The Egyptian Lover. Both were born from Kraftwerk techno so anyone criticizing either should get their head checked. Egypt was very much a product of Prince also, so that explains much of the style, anyone ever notice his record catalog numbers? The only other west coast pioneer at the time at this level was Roger Troutman from Zapp. The west coast was also defining their own style unique from NY hip hop and they arrived at techno hop like Miami arrived at bass. In 1984 most people were looking for incredible beats to break to, advanced lyrical hip hop would be a few more years. It's really easy to tell who was there and who simply got "into vinyl" recently.

            I've only just gotten On the Nile, didn't know anything by Egyptian Lover. What the fuck? It sounds very good. Fantastic, actually. The music is youthful, brash, funny, funky, accomplished and deep. The mix is ... a disembarrassment. Transparent, spacey, not loud, not produced to death. So you can really turn this up!

              Why was this done from a vinyl source? Where were the master tapes in 1995?

                    Totally retarded review. Apparently you don't know nothing about rap history and what the role was for The Egyptian Lover. But no need to explain to you if you judge a record by it's cover. Apparantly you know nothing about 808 (or 303) neither and what the difference these machines made in the music world.
                    A man with such music taste should know better about music culture and innovating music.

                      Egyptian Lover is a West Coast Hip Hop legend! This album was so ahead of it's time. In 1983 he made electro tracks with Ice-T and Chris "the glove" Taylor for a movie about west coast Hip Hop called "Breakin' n' Enterin'! And even before that he was the main DJ for "Uncle Jamms Army" in L.A.! As for your thin 808 beats comment..... Have you ever seen anyone else play a TR Roland 808 live at a show like it is an instrument? I have seen him do it... and believe me the beats were not thin!

                        First hearing this, right now on the turntable. I really don't know why this supposed to be such a great album. Very thin 808 beats, but with some nice bleebs and bloobs. His voicing is more like talking than rapping. But I laugh alot about his girl-talk. It's pethatic especially combined with the coverphotos, but because of that it sounds as some over-the-top cult thing. Nice to have a retro laugh at parties, but never a real musical highpoint.
