Promo Only, Inc., the nation's largest subscriber-based music and music video service, today announced the release of Hot Video Classics Best of Old Skool Volume 1, the latest in its series of music video classics on DVD.
Derived from "old is cool," becoming "old's cool," and finally "old school," Old Skool, as its known today, refers to the hip-hop of the late ‘70s, ‘80s and early ‘90s, a time of infectious beats, unbridled creativity, and subject matter that dealt largely with good times and friendship.
"It's with Old Skool's positive message and feel-good vibe very much in mind that we've assembled what we feel to be the essential Old Skool collection," said Jim Robinson, director, Promo Only. "A collection that will entertain, educate and enlighten for hours on end."
Featuring 39 digitally remastered music videos, Best of Old Skool Volume 1 track listings include such unforgettable classics as: Baby Got Back, Sir Mix-A-Lot; Return Of The Mack, Mark Morrison; This Is How We Do It, Montell Jordan; Poison, Bell Biv DeVoe; Whoomp! There It Is, Tag Team; Genius Of Love, Tom Tom Club; Rockit, Herbie Hancock; You Dropped A Bomb On Me, Gapp Band; Let's Groove Tonight, Earth, Wind & Fire; and Rapper's Delight (Full Version), Sugarhill Gang.
"We think hip-hop's rich tradition of rhythm and rhyme can still teach us a thing or two about good times and great music," concluded Robinson. "Who says learning can't be fun?"
