I was just looking at a few 7" singles from Licensed to Ill days that I have, and wondering what the person who originally bought them must have thought (I'm not the original owner, because I was a kid when LTI came out). I've got this little record that is now almost as old as me, but there was a time when it was brand new.

Someone picked it up either out of curiosity or because this was the new hot track on the radio. Almost no one knew anything about the Boys besides these few songs that Def Jam put out. There was no drug-fueled Los Angeles era, no instrumentation and refined rap era, no matching futuristic jump suits era, no super-political era, no.... whatever era Hot Sauce Committee was (golden days of sandwich artistry era?) There was just a handful of songs in the semi-early days of rap that didn't seem to fit in anywhere. Someone was holding that record and living in that world, and I'm now holding it and living in a world where it's all over.

The single was actually Slow and Low/She's On It. Slow and low..... shit seems like it all went by so fast.

Back then when l was at school it was deemed cool if you liked electro, breaking dancing and RUN DMC and anything that sounded like RUN DMC.
