Well, Grandmaster Flash did a world timeless Hit with White Lines thanks to Cavern.
This is a must have record for any music collector, extremly clever and amazing record.

Optimo which for a while I did not know was only a three minute song, Tony Humphries would play it seamlessly forever, you would think it was 20 minutes long. I don't know if he had an edit or if he was going back and forth with two copies, that cowbell and the percussion pounding on that Zanzibar sound system was crazy insane! You felt it all up and down in your esophagus like a second heartbeat I can still hear it.

"Cavern" is a great track, but everyone here knows that. Interestingly enough, I know someone who worked on the original video from '83 (which was the only video commissioned by 99 Records). When I told them how great the animation was, they were amazed that I knew of the video, and I'm pretty sure I'm the first person to ever tell them how great it was. Always keeping an eye out for the EP in the wild.
