Run DMC Drops “Ultimate” Collection

Run DMC and Arista records has revisited past glories on a new CD/DVD titled called the Ultimate Run DMC,” a set which is currently in stores.

The album is a dense collection of smashes from pioneering of Jam Master Jay, Run and DMC, including 18 songs, 14 video clips and a mini-documentary.

The audio will encompass the group’s highest peak (1984 to 1988) and other difficult to find songs from that period. For example the album includes rare versions of 1983’s “Here We Go” and 1984’s “Together Forever (Krush Groove 4).”

The DVD segment includes the videos for “King of Rock,” “It’s Tricky,” “Mary, Mary,” “Rock Box,” and Walk this Way,” and other ground-breaking songs.

After the brutal slaying of Jam Maser Jay in November 2002, the group disbanded. DMC has continued to craft his solo album, Checks, Thugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll,
