Breaks The Atom (Breaking Atoms Extended)
Vinyl LP Record [2LP]
Actual Records presents Breaks The Atom, the extended reissue of the debut album from Main Source. The original full length Breaking Atoms is one of the most influential albums in Hip Hop history thanks to the virtuoso production of frontman/rapper Large Professor, whose heavy, and then, original, use of sampling has influenced Hip Hop producers to this very day. The album also sports the smash singles "Looking At The Front Door" (here mis-titled as "Out"), "Peace Is Not The Word To Play" and most notabley "Live at the Barbeque" featuring the break out debut of Hip Hop superstar Nas. Breaks The Atom includes the orginal 11 tracks and adds the heavily bootleged pre-album 12" singles "Think" and "Hellivision." The double LP also boasts the first two cuts off the shelved sophomore album The Science, "How My Man Went Down In The Game" and "Fakin' The Funk," this demo version offers different lyrics and vocal takes than the more common remix that appears on the White Men Can't Jump soundtrack.
