Ultimate Breaks & Beats 26??



Up until 2 years ago, Ultimate Breaks and Beats vol 25 was the last ever in it's series of breakbeat compilation albums.


For those of you who know, the story of volume 26 is a tragedy - Volume 26 was scheduled for release in 1991 but the untimely death of Lenny 'Breakbeat' Roberts, the founder of Street Beat Records and a tireless collector of original breaks meant that the UB&B series came to an untimely end and the next volume in the series was shelved, until, in 2006. The master tapes of Luis Flores edits were found and as a tribute to the late Lenny and Luis, the 26th release in the series came out as a very limted edition.


Unfortunately I haven't got the mp3 to put up. But being the avid/ anorak UBB collector that I am I will no doubt be purchasing this on vinyl just to add to my collection.


If anyone's got it digitally and they wouldn't mind sharing then please send a copy to me.

That series was a must, and it opened a lot of people to digging including myself. The album art was cool also. But I have always been curious why some records in the series have the "Street Beat Records" crossed out or cut out on the record label and the cover? Did Street Beat Records get sued or something?

Yep, I agree. UBB were my first taste of breaks and (most of) the covers are great, even the generic basic ones with no artwork.
I never noticed that Street Beat had its name crossed out on any though. I'll check mine and see whats up.

That series was and is essential for hip hop history.
I often wondered if the UBB influenced Marley Marl and others or the other way around.

Instead of downloading it, go get the DVD comp: http://www.fatbeats.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=4991

It includes 1-25 in full mastered aiff and mp3-format plus gatefold digipack with covers. For under $70.

That aside, IMO this 526 is a good take on what would have been the 26th volume some 15 years ago. About time "The Jam" made it.
R.I.P. Breakbeat Lenny.

Anything after Volume 25 is not official. SBR only produced its series on vinyl. The other products are also NOT official. Bootleggers.
