Grandmaster Flash - The Official Adventures of Grandmaster Flash: Mixed By Grandmaster Flash (2002)
Not, as you'd expect, a greatest hits compilation, The Official Adventures of Grandmaster Flash amounts to something approaching a biography of the most deservedly name-checked DJ in the world. Along with the other hip-hop pioneers; Kool Herc, The Sugarhill Gang, and even Blondie, Grandmaster Flash has written himself into music history as the first DJ to refine and use the turntable techniques that make hip-hop what it is. The best-known hits--"The Message" and "Adventures Of Grandmaster Flash On The Wheels Of Steel"--are refreshingly missing, as are all contributions from the Furious Five, choosingmore… to focus on the work of Flash himself. What you do get is a fantastic selection of little-known mixes, collaborations with acts such as Kraftwerk, audio interview segments and authoritative sleeve notes from Frank Broughton and Bill Brewster, authors of Last Night A DJ Saved My Life. These answer such questions as how many members of the crew appeared on The Message (Answer: Flash and only Melle Mel from the Furious Five, which may explain why they're furious). Essential listening for anyone who's wondering where groups like The Avalanches got their frantic cut and paste style from, the answer to that is, of course, the original Grandmaster. --Chris Blenkarn
