What possible appeal could AOR (Adult Orientated Rock) have for the street wise hip-hop producer? Well for a start these records were very common. Many sold in their millions, and even those that didn't, at a time when the record industry was in very rude health were pressed in great numbers. If you were an impoverished would be hip hop producer they would be available for cents in thrift stores and other repositories of vinyl ephemera. Once they had bought the record they were in for a surprise. These records could contain a hell of a lot of soul.

AOR Breaks is a new compilation of Classic AOR tracks, performed by the original artists, many of which have been sampled by some of Hip Hop's finest, such as Biz Markie, 2Pac, Warren G, Snoop Dogg, Puff Daddy and more.

The album features major artists including Steve Miller Band, Joe Cocker, Boz Scaggs, Michael McDonald, Toto, Kenny loggins, ELO and many others from the scene. Also included in this Deluxe Edition is a bonus second disc containing a continuous mix of AOR tracks by the Rainbow Connection.
