Dizzy Heights – Christmas Rapping

Polydor (UK) [WRAPX 1] 1982

Former member of DJ Newtrament’s band The Krew, this is Dizzy’s debut release and is one of the earliest UK hip hop releases. It was very similar to the disco rap style of Kurtis Blow’s “Christmas Rapping” and was issued in a couple of different sleeves. One was plain with details printed on the top right corner, the other was a picture sleeve with hype sticker.

Dizzy featured in the group The Council Collective with the Style Council & guests, Dee C. Lee, Junior Giscombe, Paul Weller, etc before signing to Parlophone in 1985.
