“What possible appeal could [AOR] have for the street wise hip-hop producer? Well for a start these records were very common. Many sold in their millions, and even those that didn’t, at a time when the record industry was in very rude health were pressed in great numbers. If you were an impoverished would be hip hop producer they would be available for cents in thrift stores and other repositories of vinyl ephemera. Once they had bought the record they were in for a surprise. These records could contain a hell of a lot of soul.” (AOR Breaks liner notes).
