4.0 out of 5 stars One Upon a Time... June 16, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
...in 1961 to be precise, a Japanese crooner named Kyu Sakamoto had an international, Japanese language hit with a song called "Ue o Muite Arokô" ("I Shall Walk Looking Up") or, as the song came to be known in the English speaking world (for some reason), "Sukiyaki" (a kind beef hot pot dish).

As the meaningless alternate title suggests, most Americans couldn't understand a word Kyu was singing and had no idea what the song was about. Nevertheless, thanks to the catchy melody crafted by composer Hachidai Nakamura, the song shot to # 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts and stayed there for quite some time.

Two decades later, a forgettable disco act on their way out set some run-of-the-mill, kind of corny English language lyrics to Nakamura's infectious melody and, thanks to the appeal of the composition he had crafted, had a hit with their own version of "Sukiyaki".

Not long after that, hip hop pioneers Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh quoted a verse from the disco group's English version in a humourous, parodic, context as a small (but hysterical) part of their iconic collaboration "La-Di-Da-Di". In the early days, when "La-Di-Da-Di" was released on vinyl records and old fashioned cassettes, fans of the instant classic could hear the song in all of its unmutilated glory.

BUT when it came time to convert this gem to digital form, the disco has-been who penned the quoted verse, long forgotten by most of the world, apparently made a fuss, and so from that time to this, "La-Di-Da-Di" has NEVER been released on cd or as a download full and intact.

Had to have all this greatness in one amazing album, i'm A Bronx native and memba driving through Harlem the years of /87/88/89 , and hearing this as we passed 125th st , 145th st and all over the Bronx. my only problem is the editing on the show and la di dadi ,, how could they take out certain good parts.

What can you say about Doug E Fresh and the Get Fresh Crew. Classics that likely won't be duplicated again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only okay... June 8, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I wonder if Doug E. Fresh even gets paid for this CD. It seems suspiciously like a bootleg (maybe outside the U.S.). It can't be found in any of the internet music databases. Track titles are misspelled. And the two biggest hits are the watered down, edited versions. Now I know why it was so inexpensive.

All that aside, at least I now have a semblance of Doug E. Fresh's otherwise hard to find music.
