Album of the Day
All the Greatest Hits
Formed around Roger Troutman and three of his brothers, Zapp was among the leading lights of the rich '70s/'80s Dayton, Ohio, funk scene. Signing with Warner Bros. at the suggestion of Bootsy Collins and George Clinton, Zapp and its frontman released a string of R&B hits for the label, the best of which are gathered on ALL THE GREATEST HITS. The collection's 17 tracks include such classics as “More Bounce to the Ounce,” “Dance Floor” and “Computer Love” and feature guest vocals from Shirley Murdock - along with plenty of Roger's signature “talk-box” singing. Released in 1993, by which time rappers including Tupac Shakur and the Beastie Boys had begun to champion Zapp, ALL THE GREATEST HITS became a platinum certified, Top 10 R&B album, and is now available as a double-LP on colored vinyl.
