History of the megamix: Z-Rock Scratch Party

Back in the early 80s there was a series of bootleg 12"s released with multi-tracking scratch mixes on the Z-rock label. The mixes were kind of sloppy but captures the emerging DJ megamixing energy that could be heard on late night "black" radio stations at the time. This is what I spent my lunch money on back in the day at the local record store in tha West. Phunkula brings these lost gems for your enjoyment in a lame effort to preserve megamixing history (props to Disco Patrick for the label scans). Click on the label pics to leech.
