Run-DMC

Old-school rap.

Run-DMC

(1984)
  1. Hard Times
  2. Rock Box
  3. Jam-Master Jay
  4. Hollis Crew (Krush-Groove 2)
  5. Sucker M. C.'s (Krush-Groove 1)
  6. It's Like That
  7. Wake Up
  8. 30 Days
  9. Jay's Game

Good album. I like all the tracks, especially "Rock Box". Great scratching by Jay.

"And only practise makes a real jam-master!"

King of Rock

(1985)
  1. Rock the House
  2. King of Rock
  3. You Talk Too Much
  4. Jam-Master Jammin'
  5. Roots, Rap, Reggae
  6. Can You Rock It Like This?
  7. You're Blind
  8. It's Not Funny
  9. Daryl and Joe (Krush-Groove 3)

Another good one, at least as good as the first. I didn't care for "Roots, Rap, Reggae", though.

Raising Hell

(1986)
  1. Peter Piper
  2. It's Tricky
  3. My Adidas
  4. Walk This Way
  5. Is It Live?
  6. Perfection
  7. Hit It Run
  8. Raising Hell
  9. You Be Illin'
  10. Dumb Girl
  11. Son Of Byford
  12. Proud To Be Black

OK album. "Walk This Way" with Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry was a big mainstream hit.

Tougher Than Leather

(1988)
  1. Run's House
  2. Mary, Mary
  3. They Call Us Run-DMC
  4. Beats to the Rhyme
  5. Radio Station
  6. Papa Crazy
  7. Tougher Than Leather
  8. I'm Not Going Out Like That
  9. How'd Ya Do It, Dee?
  10. Miss Elaine
  11. Soul to Rock-and-Roll
  12. Ragtime

The last decent album. "Papa Crazy" gets on my nerves; the rest is OK.
