Stretch & Bobbito 1996 (Mr. Live & Tony Bones)

Peace to my boy Flav who set me off with 20 or so unedited Stretch & Bobbito cassettes from 1995-1996. Lot of good stuff to come when I get time. So far I got unedited nights including special guests the Pharcyde, Heltah Skeltah, Natural Elements, Darman, Royal Flush & Mic Geronimo, and finally I got the tape I've been trying to track down for the longest, the night with KRS, Lord Finesse & Supernatural. This is just what I've heard so far, a lot more, and when I get the time to rip them and sort them out they'll be up.

For now, here is a classic Stretch Armstrong Show with special guests
Mr Live & Tony Bones live in the studio. These guys had the fourth release on Bobbito's fondle em label. Listening to the tape and hearing them announce all the events going on that week brings back some memories, 1st ITF battle, Lyricist Lounge, and also mentions of 19th Rock Steady anniversary (which is why I'm guessing July 1996 on this). You'll hear Stretch in the mix and an interview/freestyle session from Tony Bones & Mr Live, running about 50 minutes. Check out a recent interview with Mr. Live on Masscorporation.

*updated links courtesy of Aleph/Steve B/Nobs/Philaflava feature full 4 hour show

Peace to Bobbito, again check him out at Bouncemag online, and Stretch at Konstant Kontact. I left off a track listing on this one so you can all be surprised, if anyone wants the list hit me up and I can leave it in the comments, although I don't know the last track played on this mix (if anyone wants to help me identify that). Peace to Andyman over at Rekordzonwheels dropping nearly all of the old Stretch & Bobbito freestyle tapes in digital form. Peace to everyone worldwide- trying to see some more comments so leave your feedback, opinions, thanks, whatever, keep me interested in this site.
