Often times, it’s the pioneers who led the way for many others that get overlooked but Egyptian Lover’s importance on West Coast hip hop cannot be understated. His electric, fully analogue sound heavily influenced Dr. Dre, Ice-T, DJ Pooh and many others. Stones Throw Records got their hands on the original master tapes of some of these genre-shaping recordings and they compiled them into the Egyptian Love Anthology. The project is a collection of unreleased and classic tracks from 1983-to-1988, totaling 22 tracks in whole. They’ve got a really nice release planned especially for physical copies of the project, which I want to direct you to check out down below.
