De La Soul were added to the bill of a festival i went to this past weekend in Sheffield. Unfortunately i had to get home before they played. I saw them back in '08 and need to again soon. They are regularly touring the UK so i have no excuses.
I've ever really been a vinyl collector. I picked up both of Jeff'sMagnificent EP's that came out, and i own a 2 Too Many 12" single with some Jeff remixes on and a comp calle WORD2 with New Kids on The Block on. But for my birthday my girlfriend surprised me with the first three albums on Vinyl. Very cool to own a physical copy of something with the original GANBT on and a the original cover for Rock the House. He's The DJ.. is awesome cos a few of the later tracks are extended versions. But annoyingly (Due to length on a vinyl) And In This corner doesn't include The Girlie had a moustache or my fave from the album, Jeff was on the beatbox.
This isn't new news, but there resentment towards Flash is understandable. Flash was clever in all of this i guess. I'm seeing Melle Mel and Scorpio Live soon at a festival which also has Sugarhill Gang and Wu Tang on the bill. Cannot wait.
