Exact repro of this 1982 release, manufactured by Rhino. "While they didn't garner the critical praise of their label cohorts, Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five, the Sugarhill Gang still produced their share of memorable slices of early hip-hop. Helping to bring Sylvia Robinson's Sugar Hill Records into the limelight, the label's namesake group erred more on the funk side of the hip-hop equation, plying a steamy, all-night mix of go-go grooves, straight funk singing, and rapping. 8th Wonder features the hits 'Apache' and the title track, as well as such slick funk burners as 'Hot Hot Summer Day' and the incredible bit of uptown dance alchemy 'Funk Box.'" --All Music Guide
