The Story of The 808

I remember back in the mid 80's going to Funk O Mart here in Philly and buying my first (and only) Roland TR-808 drum machine because I had seen one of the older guys in the neighborhood with one.  That machine (along with the 909) is what defined not only Hip Hop during that time, but also dance music in general.  Great to see a full documentary being done on this timeless classic and highly collectible machine.
