The Sugarhill Gang - 8th Wonder (1981) - €10,00

The Sugarhill Gang are an American hip hop group, known mostly for its 1979 hit "Rapper's Delight," the first rap single to become a Top 40 hit.
The members, all from Englewood, New Jersey consisted of Michael "Wonder Mike" Wright, Henry "Big Bank Hank" Jackson, and Guy "Master Gee" O'Brien. 
The three were assembled into a group by producer Sylvia Robinson, who founded Sugar Hill Records with her husband, record mogul Joe Robinson. The group and the record company are named after the Sugar Hill, Harlem neighborhood.
“8th Wonder” is their second album. 
The album was released in 1982 for Sugarhill Records and was once again produced by Sylvia Robinson and James Cullimore. Though not as successful as the group's previous album, the album did feature the minor hits "8th Wonder" and "Apache", as well as such slick funk burners as “Hot Hot Summer Day” and the incredible bit of uptown dance alchemy “Funk Box” (shades of Prince here). 
An appearance by another Sugar Hill Records rap group, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five.
