In Full Gear (Bonus Tracks)

In Full Gear by Stetsasonic
Released: Jan 1988
Label: Rhino
Before The Roots, there was Stetsasonic. The Strong Island hip-hop band was willing to try anything, whether it was Miami bass on "Miami Bass," dancehall on "The Odad" or, disastrously, quiet storm soul with a cover of the '70s chestnut "Float On." However, In Full Gear's finest tracks sizzle with funky rhythms, DJ-scratched samples from producer Prince Paul and hard rhyming from Daddy-O, Frukwan and MC Delite. Listen to the title track, "DBC Let the Music Play," "Pen and Paper" and the hip-house gem "Talkin' All That Jazz" to get a taste of one of the Golden Era's true sleepers.
