The top item is a full page ad that appeared in Soul Underground magazine back in March 1988.
It's for a gig at the Academy in Brixton, London, and featured acts that were on the New York hip hop label, Cold Chillin. The line up included Roxanne Shante, Biz Markie, MC Shan and Big Daddy Kane. UK's, Tim Westwood was the DJ.
Under the ad, from the same issue of the magazine, is a chart featuring the top 20 hip hop records that were on the go at the time, compiled by Groove Records & City Sounds shops in London, and in amongst all the classic 12's is one solitary album, namely Biz Markie's "Goin' Off".
So because it was a Cold Chillin release, I have accompanied the items with my vinyl copy of the LP.
