My personal favorite Hip Hop records are:
Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five -The Message
Planet Patrol - Play at your own risk
Incredible Bongo Band - Apache
This records are the most memorable to me: "The Message" I got the album for my birthday from (still) my best friend in 1982. "Play at your own risk" I heard this record at the radio in 1982, I heard this record and I was...! "Apache" I heard this record for the first time in the 90's when Grandmaster Caz & DJ Tony Tone where on a tour in the Netherlands and I was guiding them, great honour. Grandmaster Caz was play/mixed this record on a festival and give me a mixed tape, mixed by himself, still own this tape today. All personal great memories.
I'm not from the Bronx, but I still Boogie Down
