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.
