      I have this box for years and years, bought it when it came out. Thought to look it up....worth a bit, so I guess it's time to sell, I'm not doing anything with vinyl in over 30 years now...

        Picked this up from car boot sale years ago for next to nothing. Fantastic spread of old school hip hop.
        Turned out to be a bit of a bargin too.

          I collected the original albums as the were released back in the day.. Then, when this box came out, I sold my vinyl separate albums and put the money towards the box.. I had to have the bonus disc.. Hop hop on wax.. I do remember feeling real gutted when I opened the box to find no sleave artwork inside.. Just generic white sleave with different more colourful Streetsounds electro label designs. 32 years later, I still have the box set. The box it's self is a little battered over the years, but the vinyl still looks clean and sounds great.. And I still love it :)

            Are the tracks mixed? sequenced, or full lenght?

              To be perfectly and truthfully honest I am not totally impressed by this boxset. The reason being is that I have collected all of the individually released "Electro Streetsounds" albums because you get the same amazing tracks by the same innovative artists and the album cover artwork is also highly original, timeless and second to none. You do not get the same high standard of artwork with the boxset.
              However what you do get on this album which you cannot get on the individual albums is the "Hip Hop On Wax" volumes 1,2 and 3 which have been produced by "DJ Born Supreme Allah" "DJ Red Alert*" and "DJ Chuck Chillout". These tracks are excellent slices of early Hip Hop and Electro.
              I must state that this is still, "quote unquote" an essential boxset which the discerning oldschool collector of quality Electro and HipHop would need to complete the "Streetsounds" series.
              A must for die-hard fans.

                THE BOMB. I learned a lot through this compilation to get an idea about the early times of hiphop-electro. Repetetive "assmoving" pattern tracks are collected with melodic masterpieces together here and definitely you know where all these samples come from which are used x-times nowadays. What a pity to be born too late for being a part of one of these block- parties at that time, the sounds are sure "lunacy on the streets" (Imperial Brothers - We Come To Rock is sounding somewhat modern, I'm heavily surprised). And now I'm curious to hear the other stuff from the artists who are credited here. Check out especially the bonus disc, the mixes are the ultimate shit!

                  This just takes me back to when I first got into hiphop as a kid, me and my friends used to try to breakdance and the electro tapes would be our soundtrack. When I got a bit older and was able to afford it, I bought this collection - priceless!
