This record was so in demand when it aired on the radio in 1993 it was impossible to get and at that point it was still commercially unreleased however, I was lucky enough to trade a copy with my good friend and Legendary Digger Mark B.
3'Da Hard Way - A Dirty Cop Named Harry - Noontime Records - 1990 (AKA Hard Knocks)
Up to now my blog has been mainly posting up records from the 1980's but its about time I showed some records from beyond the golden era. I am kicking it off with a 1990 Classic, 3'Da Hard Way - A Dirty Cop Named Harry.
I have both the official press photos, press sheets, official letter headed company paper and official company envelope from the now defunct offices of Noontime Records.
According to J Miller they were offered a deal with Wild Pitch after releasing these versions. The vocals on this pressing are the original versions from the original recording sessions and not the later re-recorded Wild Pitch versions. for this reason and the fact it contains "Ladies" and "Strictly from the Bronx" this record is highly prized.
