Run DMC, "Rock Box"
KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are at Greene Street Recording studio, 112 Greene Street, Soho, New York City for Run DMC's "Rock Box", first released on their self-titled debut LP on Profile Records in 1984...
"Having got to know Russell Simmons through Kurtis Blow, I was aware of Run DMC from the get go. Here was a hip hop outfit that presented itself pretty much as it did on the street. Their debut was, for me, the first Rap LP that was strong from start to finish and I played the hell out of it, although mostly on a boombox cassette.
Who would have thought that my favourite Heavy Metal record of all time would be made by two African American dudes from Hollis, Queens, but it was and it still is !" - KV
