Slammin' Ol Skool Trax has a good cross-section of early '80s funk and mid-'80s hip-hop, featuring everyone from Parliament and Brick to Run-D.M.C. and Whodini. The selection is scatter-shot and the concept is under-developed, but it's a fun listen and it does contain some genuine classics, namely Parliament's "Flashlight" and Run-D.M.C.'s "You Be Illin."
