The line-up is a who's who of those who stood out from hip-hop's nascent block party days. The Double Trouble pairing of Rodney Cee and KK Rockwell, The Chief
Rocker himself, Busy Bee, the mighty line-ups of both The Cold Crush Brothers
and The Fantastic Freaks. The music captures the free-form, roaming nature of
the film – it's rough at the edges, it's occasionally amateurish, but it's completely,
utterly glorious.

The original Animal track listing, of which this is a reissue, is full of recurring
sounds and motifs, all of them co-produced by Chris Stein and Fab Five Freddy,
stepping away from breakbeats to produce a sound that reminds you of them,
while being totally unique. The epic drums are courtesy of Lenny 'Ferrari' Ferraro,
a Vietnam vet and punk drummer whose career spanned stints backing Aretha
Franklin and Lou Reed.

Over time, those sounds – the Charlie Chase and Grand Wizard Theodore
scratches, the indelible lyrics - have become hip- hop touchstones, endlessly
sampled and referenced, the bedrock of so much music to follow. That's because
the soundtrack perfectly encapsulated the essence of the film, the scene and
hip hop's emergence from The Bronx to the attention of the wider world.
Presented in this reissue with the original artwork, it remains the blueprint
