L’ LP di Kurtis Blow "Kingdom Blow" (1a stampa USA 1986 Mercury – numero di catalogo: 422 830-215-1 M-1) mi è stato donato da Wave qualche anno fa (lui ne aveva due copie). Sicuramente è uno dei miei dischi rap preferiti e quindi ho deciso di inserire in questo articolo la grafica della copertina (con Kurtis poggiato alle torri del World Trade Center) e dei file mp3 (mono) tratti da "Street Rock" (primo brano dell’album, in cui compare anche Bob Dylan) e "The Bronx" (secondo brano del lato A). Clicca sulle immagini per ingrandire.
