MASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES AND LIMITED TO 2,000 NUMBERED COPIES: HYBRID SACD DRAMATICALLY HEIGHTENS RICK RUBIN´S PIONEERING PRODUCTION
Run-D.M.C.´s Raising Hell remains the turning point at which hip-hop crashed through mainstream barriers and never left. Anchored by the crossover smash "Walk This Way," the 1986 blockbuster still sounds like a revolution unfolding in real time. It has everything – hard-rock riffs, turntable scratching, itchy rhythms, hit singles – not the least of which are the trio´s invigorating raps and inseparable chemistry. And now it´s the first rap record afforded audiophile treatment, courtesy of Mobile Fidelity´s simply illin´ edition.
