The Real Roxanne ‎– Roxanne’s On A Roll (The Norman Cook Remixes) (1989)

Following the massive success of U.T.F.O.’s “Roxanne, Roxanne” single in late 1984 and early 1985, over 100 answer records appeared, and several female rappers adopted the Roxanne alias; the Real Roxanne (born Adelaida Martinez) was perhaps the most talented of the bunch and really only had to contend with Roxanne Shanté for the title. It took her until 1988 to release an album, by which time the Roxanne fad had run its course; still, the self-titled release packed a wallop thanks to producers Jam Master Jay, Howie Tee, and Full Force, plus the Real Roxanne’s own forceful, sassy personality.

“Roxanne’s On A Roll” was written by Martinez and Shorty Fresh, produced by Jam Master Jay (Run DMC) and L.A. Posse and the UK were treated to some early Norman Cook remixes for the 12″ single.
