Red Alert on Kiss FM (1992)

So far, this is probably my favourite tape out of the bunch Tobes gave me last month. Red Alert gets busy live on NYC radio in November 1992. Lots of treats on this plus a couple of songs I didn't recognise - can anyone ID the 'Give Me The Night' sampling track on side A?


I knew this was gonna be a good when the adverts at the start included a St Ides commercial by Willie D. That was (suprisingly) followed by Red dropping 'Secrets (Of Success)' by the UK's own Cookie Crew and then into some Ice Cube, Nice & Smooth and Brand Nubian. On side B you'll find Scarface, Gang Starr, D Nice and Slick Rick amongst others. Vintage stuff and highly recommended.

Because I know certain completist rap nerd types out there will want it, I seperated that Willie D/St Ides joint. You can download that here


  1. DOPE, thank you Step One (One...One...One)

    I would say that the "Give Me The Night" sampling track is

    E.S.P-Give Me the Night (Select 1991)



  2. Thanks man, another one for the wants list!
