    Great write up!

    Luckily, I'm the proud owner of the test press pictured in this thread. I asked Charlie about it and he replied:

    We made 100 pressings. Most of these were handed out to all the DJ's and MC's. I only kept a few. Jose may have been one of the Twins playing congas at the amphitheater in the movie 1981.

    For the longest time, it had been assumed only 10 or 20 of the test pressings were made.

    Hahaha! Looks like it's Skittles and Ex-Lax for me all day. I shoulda known better that I'd have to eat those words. Lesson learned, never say never at DWG, someone's always got it.

    Great info guys. Looks like I gotta get another 12". I'll update the blogpost with the scan and the good info you guys added. I'll drop it in a few. Good looks everyone!

    Nice blog post Rchecka.

    I could be wrong but I have a feeling Phill Most has a copy of the OG breakbeats & I also recall seeing a photo of Edan being given a copy by Charlie Ahearn. As I say I could be wrong.

    Amazing historical record to own, congrats Sureshot.

    I was always crazy about the Down by Law beat & before I new it was specially made for the film I was told by someone the break was by Blondie.

    This led me on a wild goose chase in Our Price etc checking every Blondie LP & 12" to no avail ;-)

    Is there any truth that it is Blondie's drummer Clem Burke playing on the breakbeats?

    Again not sure where I heard it from but always thought it could be true with the time frame & Blondies connection with the Hip Hop scene in New York, Fab Five Freddy etc.

    I have doubles of a re-issue of the Breakbeat LP but not on Music of Life records, will have to dig them out.

    Also have doubles of the OG LP which I used to do a routine with in DMC competitions, the intro to "Fantastic Freaks at The Dixie".
