BLOGGERHOUSE presents: The Source Fat Tape & Sure Shot Singles (February 1995)

by Eric on March 18, 2012

Ahhhh, the infamous Feb. 1995 issue, the issue where Dana Dane’s LP, “Rollin’ wit Dana Dane”, received more mics (3.5) than “newcomers” Smif N Wessun’s stellar debut, “Dah Shinin” (3). Adding salt to the wound(s), “Dah Shinin” reviewer Joe Charles, closed the review with the following less-than-flattering sentiments:

“This (“Bucktown”) was the song that led many people to think that this group’s album would be the shit. Instead of sticking to this mode, they leap into tough guy BS and make their album a little weaker than it sould’ve. The tracks, by Evil Dee and Mr. Walt, are too similar (dirty, plodding beats and bumpy bass) and make them sound even more like Black Moon proteges. If they were hooked up with more diversified flavors, listeners wouldn’t feel deja vu and might be more satisfied.”

Wow, harsh words, undoubtedly, but these days I’d say that “Dah Shinin” although two years younger than “Enta Da Stage” is the better of the two albums and kept up with the times just a pinch better, in my opinion. Regardless, hit the skip to grab the tracklist for the Feb. 1995 Fat Tape & Sure Shot Singles…

Harsh words indeed for a classic LP like Dah Shinin & only 3 mics @*! Mind you standards were higher back then.
