Everyone knows now how influential Grandmaster Flash was to the mechanics of DJing, with his invention and popularization of various mixing and scratching techniques. And speaking of the early stuff is best phenomenon mentioned above, his 7-minute piece The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on the Wheels of Steel not included on these records is arguably the finest DJ collage in hip-hop history. Flash soldiered on, assembling a new group and recorded They Said it Couldn't Be Done. Oddly, it's more consistent than the debut, with no flat-out bad tracks, but also no real high points.
