Editorial Reviews

The 1991 debut by this West Coast hip-hop legend revealed a marked divergence from the grim gangsta rap of his cousin Ice Cube; it was exuberant, eccentric and heavy on the P-Funk. Here are Dr. Bombay; Wack M.C.'s; Eye Examination; Mistadobalina; Made in America; Catch a Bad One (last two are remixes), and 10 more. Heavily influential hip-hop!

5.0 out of 5 stars Props for opening the vaults March 6, 2004
Format:Audio CD
With this "Best of" collection, Elektra has done what I wish every record label would have the guts/brains to do: it opened the vaults to give us access to the infamous glut of "previously unavailable on CD" hip-hop tracks. Over half of the songs on this Del retrospective are remixes, b-sides, or soundtrack cuts that are difficult or impossible to find anywhere else on CD. I have many of these old remixes & b-sides on cassette singles, and I am very happy to finally have crisp, clean digital copies to play, rip, and burn. You might fault the selection of songs dubbed "the best," but you can't fault the inclusion of so many rare and elusive treats. "The Undisputed Champs," "Catch a Bad One (Remix)," and "Burnt" are stand-outs, but there's really not a bad song on the whole disc. Yes, some of the remixes are disappointing--but, really, how could a remixer top the original versions of bonafide classics like "Mistadobalina" and "Dr. Bombay?" Impossible. Just be thankful that some doors have been opened to some previously lost and forgotten tracks. And let's hope that the trend continues. (Are you listening, Jive? Let's get a similar compilation of Souls of Mischief vaulted gems, okay?)

Format:Audio CD
This right here is basically a Del Greatest Hits album from the two albums that hes realeased on Elektra records (No Need For Alarm (1993) and I Wish My Brother George Was Here (1991)). Del would be dropped from Elektra around 1996 while he was recording "Future Development".

Now I have a beef with Elektra Records ever since I found out about the situation with that K.M.D. album "Black Bastards". In addition, around '04/'05, they would be bought out by Atlantic Records, but before they go, they would try to make some money by putting out some greatest hits albums under their name from some of their major artists (Brand Nubian, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Busta Rhymes, and more). This Del Tha Funkee Homosapien album would be apart of this also.

Now since he recorded two albums, Elektra would put some of the songs from them, as well as some rare 12" singles that were remixed that were not avaliable on the albums. The songs "Ahonetwo, Ahonetwo", "Mistdobalina", "Sleepin On My Couch" and "Dr. Bombay" were the funky tracks that would appear on the "I Wish My Brother George Was Here" and "Wack MC's" would appear on the "No Need For Alarm" album. Some of the remix tracks like "Catch A Bad One (remix)" and "Wrongplace (Cas remix)" would be good additions to this album (the origonals appeared on the "No Need For Alarm" album), although I don't think the remixes of the "I Wish My Brother..." album would amount to the origonals. Some of the unavailable tracks like "Burnt" (from the flipside of "Mistadobalina" single) features Casual and Souls Of Mischief thats good for many Hiero fans, while Pep Love and Q-Tip would join in for the track "Undisputed Champs", which is also pretty tight to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Odd choice of songs, but good no less February 20, 2004
Format:Audio CD
When I first saw the CD, I instantly bought it. It's a great CD, and it's been a while since a new Del CD came out. It's a great set of songs, but unfortunately, considering it is restricted to 91-93, there's alot of good stuff missing. There are some great songs, but I feel there weren't enough songs from "No Need For Alarm". Infact, only Catch a Bad one and Wack MCs are from it. Regardless, this is a Del Fan's must own.
Some of the remixes are almost better than the original, but others are rather disapointing (Mistadobalina to be specific).

Finally a new Del album after Both Sides of the Brain. This one should be good. It has remixes and other stuff. If you are a Del fan vote 'this review was helpful'. If your not a Del fan vote 'this review was not helpful'.
