Delicious Vinyl came busting out of the gates in the late '80s with huges hits by Tone Loc
("Wild Thing," "Funky Cold Medina") and Young MC
("Bust A Move"), plus critically acclaimed records by the Pharcyde
and Brand New Heavies
. They never quite had another stretch like that, but that particular era was pretty terrific, as DV-10: A Decade of Delicious Vinyl
proves. The 14-track collection concentrates on the late '80s and early '90s, when the label was at their peak. Some may complain that some latter-day cuts are missing, but the fact of the matter is, this results in a better, entertaining listen, and gives an accurate portrait of the label's strengths.
