    According to today's Musictap, The Greatest Hits of Grandmaster Flash, Melle Mel and The Furious 5 and The Best of The Sugarhill Gang will be coming to DVD-A May 25th.

    These should be great multichannel party albums (especially Sugar Hill Gang), and may even turn on a few friends to Hi-res once they hear you bang bang the boogie.

    I would have thought more people would be interested in these discs. I already own both on CD, and can't wait to get the Hi-res multichannel mixes.

    Sugar Hill is just good old fun hip hop, and Grandmaster Flash Mellie Mel and The Furious Five is wrap that actually has a message and meaning to the lyrics unlike a lot of today's mainstream offerings.

    Oh man, those sound SWEET. [​IMG]

    I hope that Rapper's Delight is going to be the 15 minute or so version of the song. [​IMG]

    I'm glad to hear this stuff is coming out in the new format. I can't stand contemporary rap music, but these guys, the pioneers of the genre, were incredible. Tks for the info.

    Was checking on these titles at Rhino & got a scare: look at the cover for the Grandmaster Flash dvd-audio & tell me what OTHER dvd-audio company's label looks like that? Gawd I hope THAT label has nothing to do with this release.

    The Sugar Hill dvd-audio looks O.K. though.

    Cduniverse.com has release dates of August 24 for both titles.

    I'm glad to hear that these are still planned for release! [​IMG]

    Any word on what version of Rapper's Delight will be on the Sugarhill DVD-A? I hope that it's the 15 minute version. [​IMG]

    Just a reminder that these titles come out today.

    And Rhino emailed me & said they are true multichannel recordings made from the multitrack tapes. [​IMG]

    I'm disapointed with what's on Grandmaster's. Sugarhill, the opposite! If it ever comes out, I'll get it.[​IMG]

    Thanks for the update Lance. I forgot these releases were on the way, as most Hi-res releses these days seem to be delayed. I wiill keep my eye out for them locally.
