Any audio of west coast funk or rap before '83 or so?
It seems like the Egyptian Lover/Wreckin Cru era is pretty well documented, and there are some decent oral histories available covering the late 70/early 80s, but I haven't turned up much in the way of actual audio examples of either a) live hip hop DJ and/or MC routines from the West Coast comparable to Cold Crush Live @ Harlem World and the like, or b) live disco/funk/hiphop DJ mixes (or playlists even) from KDAY, KJLH , KACE from the late 70s/early 80s. Does anything like this actually exist on the internet? I'm realizing I have no sense of what the scene was actually like there before the electro funk thing started happening. I know certain disco/funk/poplock jams must have been west coast favorites just because of what the G-funk era dudes sampled, but I'd love to hear those songs played in context.
