I found a copy of EXPERIENCE UNLIMITED
"Knock Him Out Sugar Ray" 12" on VERMACK records today for a mere £6 (approx $10). A repress, I first thought, but I was pleasantly surprised by the discoloured paper sleeve and tell-tale SRC stamp in the run-out groove. This confirmed it as an original US 12" - that's good enough proof for me. I hate wack bootlegs and phony re-issues.
I remember when hip hop veteran TIM WESTWOOD would talk over this E.U. beat on his CAPITAL RAP SHOW back in the days, but it's an even better play out track for the b-boys and b-girls to rock to. A decent copy has eluded me for years ... until today.
For the impatient amongst you the break kicks in at 2:24.
Great find as usual. This break spoke to me as soon as I played it. Its the break Steady-B used for "bring the beat back. Play the first 15 seconds and you'll hear it too.
Thanks for keeping Hip Hop Alive...
nice find. classic break action.
