Editorial Reviews

The Fat Boys were the highest profiled hip hop group in the early 1980 s next to Run DMC. They were part of the first corporate sponsored rap concert (Fresh Fest), they were featured in the movie Krush Groove, one of the first rap groups to travel to Europe, and they sold hefty amounts of records and continued to balloon throughout the decade. Their beginnings were humble like most but quickly catapulted into full stardom. Appearances on radio, TV, full tours, magazine spreads and they even had their own embroidered satin jackets! Their first single; "Reality" under the name Disco 3 was released unnoticed and that's when their fearless management of Charles Stettler and Lynda West decided to bring in one of the hottest names in rap at the time to produce; Kurtis Blow. The single "Fat Boys" with Kurtis became a instant hit and it also became the new name of the group. Kurt enlisted his music team to assemble what became the debut album by the Fat Boys. Larry Smith (Run DMC s producer and arranger), Davy DMX, Don Blackman, and a whole slew of other session players laid the raw backbeat for the three boys from Brooklyn to rock the house! What separated their album from the majority of other rap records at the time was the pure rawness of the songs. The humorous element dominated the record but there was a prime roughness to their style that gave them a hardcore edge. Songs like Stick Em, Fat Boys, The Place To Be & Human Beat Box easily display their boisterousness. The added jewels to this re-issue are the Mr. Magic (RIP) radio interviews. The growth of the group can be heard first hand between an early interview before their debut album and one after success. The unlisted 15th track is also a piece of lost audio history as it s Mr. Magic announcing the Disco 3 as the winners of the Tin Pan Apple After Dark Dance & Rap Contest at Radio City Music Hall (May 23rd, 1983); where the group got their record deal. This deluxe reissue serves up the classic rap album for the first time in 28 years, fully remastered with all the necessary ingredients...ALL YOU CAN EAT!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's about time, long overdue July 20, 2012
Verified Purchase
Just received this in the mail today and i'm very pleased and super excited. I used to have the record/LP when i was a kid. I was always a big Fat Boys fan. Still own a lot of their albums on Cassette and own Disorderlies on VHS. I can only hope and pray they re-release all the other Fat Boys albums on cd. The first is the best but the others are great too.

Now on to the Pizza Box. I love it. Very well done. This is gonna look awesome on my cd shelf. I haven't bought a new cd in quite a while but there was no way i could pass this up. The cd is stored in a cardboard sleeve but a nice added touch is a paper sleeve inside the cardboard just like records used to have.

It's hard to rate the tracks because the whole cd is great from beginning to end. Jail House Rap was always my favorite, and Human Beat Box and Stick 'Em were not far behind. But now i may have a new favorite, Can You Feel It? has grown on me over the years and i caught my self playing it over and over a few times already today. the rest of the songs are great too. The bonus songs are an added plus. I always felt All You Can Eat should of been on one of their albums. The interviews are great. This whole cd set is filled with so much history.

I do have a question, in the song Fat Boys, the parts when the girl sings the chorus sound distorted. Is it suppose to sound like that? I don't have my record anymore to compare.

This is my first review ever here on Amazon. I think i picked the right product to start with.

Quoted from the linear notes
"Yo hook my mic up please... make... Kurt make the bass come out so clear clear clear... please i'm asking you K.B. Ready? yea Ready?

5.0 out of 5 stars How A Re-Issue Should Be Done! July 20, 2012
Verified Purchase
Great packaging, remastering, liner notes, and bonus tracks. Uncredited track 15 is especially cool. This is how a re-issue should be done!

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY!!! September 7, 2012
For awhile finding the orignal Fat Boys cds was a real chore. Now we FINALLY have a remastered cd of the classic album by the Fat Boys! Not only does the remaster sound great but you get some really GREAT bonus material! Interviews from back in the day and early stuff from their Disco 3 stuff! Its a blast from the past that has been needed for a LOOONG time!

RIP Buff Love

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fat Boys Deliver on “Pizza Box” Reissue August 29, 2014
The Fat Boys Deliver on “Pizza Box” Reissue
Artist: The Fat Boys
Title: The Fat Boys
Label: TPA
28 years after its debut, the self-titled first LP from Hip-Hop pioneers The Fat Boys sees a stateside CD release for the first time. A buffet of golden-age beats and rhymes is waiting for listeners when they slide this into a CD player.
The hefty Brooklyn-bred trio—emcees Mark “Prince Markie Dee” Morales and Damon “Kool Rock-Ski” Wimbley, along with vocal-percussion prodigy Darren “Buff Love” Robinson-- began their career as The Disco 3 in the Reagan-era 1980s. Still teenagers at the time, the group entered a rap contest, where they won first prize—a record deal with Sutra Records. Reportedly, the guys were kind of disappointed as they had their eyes on the second-prize home stereo.
The contest’s promoter, Charles Stettler, hooked them up with “The Breaks” megastar (and Russell Simmons affiliate) Kurtis Blow. A string of catchy hit singles soon followed—and running a big tab on hotel room-service reportedly cemented the guys’ formal name change.
Overall, there’s a lot more going on here than most might assume. No 60s-pop covers or collabos with the Beach Boys or Chubby Checker to be found here. This is strictly Mark and Kool on the mic, Buff on the beatbox and Blow behind the boards. Blow was at the peak of his powers here as a producer, including Run-DMC collaborators Larry Smith and Davy DMX in the mix of session musicians. Sampling wasn’t the norm yet in Hip-Hop; indeed, live instruments are the rule here, not the exception.
The remastered set leads off with “Jail House Rap”, a nod to staying on the right side of the law.
