Baby Blue Soundcrew's mix of clubbish old skool hits on Urban Nostalgia Vol. 1 produces an album that any true hip-hop fan will enjoy.
Some of the tracks included on this non-stop party compilation are Bell Biv Devoe's deadly, 'Poison', EPMD's amazing 'Crossover,' Black Sheep's infamous 'The Choice Is Yours,' Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rocks' sample-laden 'It Takes Two,' Boyz II Men's landmark 'Motownphilly,' and LL Cool J's sensuous 'Doin It.' Also included is Cameo's classic 'Candy,' which Mariah Carey sampled and slaughtered on 'Loverboy.' Tony! Toni! Toné!'s "Feels Good" is another standout track.
Despite the fact that Lionel Richie's 'All Night Long' did not fit well with the album, I have to say that this is a quality old skool mix album. I thoroughly enjoyed this trip back in time. It is a nice mix guaranteed to get any party started.
