Chrysalis, 1996. Sealed (pic cover).... $11.99
Nice one from the slept-on Kollage LP. On "Three The Hard Way", Bahamadiah is joined by K-Swift and Mecca Star for this classic female posse cut, plus production by Premier makes it even doper. "Uknowhowwedu" is remixed by Ski of Original Flavor (and now Jay-Z). 12-inch, Vinyl record

Beastie BoysIn Sound From Way Out! ... CD
Grand Royal/Capitol, 1996. Used .... $4.99
Nice one! Even at their weakest vocal moments, we've always dug the Beastie Boys' firm committment to funky instrumental backing. Their albums are filled with lots of nice interludes, instrumentals, and backing grooves that always seem to get buried amidst all of the tracks with vocals. Now, this excellent collection brings together some of their best tracks in this genre, for an album that's got the sound of a lost jazz organ session, with lots of weird twists and turns thrown in. The set's a cool bit of instrumental funk with a very classic production feel, and a modern committment to the funky break. Every track's a winner, and titles include "Groove Holmes", "Sabrosa", "In 3's", "Bobo On the Corner", and "Shambala". CD

Black SheepWolf In Sheep's Clothing (2LP pressing) ... LP
Mercury/Get On Down, 1991. New Copy 2LP (reissue).... $22.99
A Native Tongues classic from 1991 – one that sounded great way back when, and has held up beautifully over the years – and rightly considered amongst the greatest hip hop albums ever! Wolf In Sheep's Clothing is playful rap at it's best, with funky and and funny cuts galore – but the title is apt, as the wit is pretty sharply barbed – especially when they're skewering hardcore and gangsta cliches. It's as brilliant as ever. Includes the massive "Flavor Of The Month", "Similak Child", "Pass The 40", "To Whom It May Concern", "Butt In The Meantime", "Strobelite Honey", "Are You Mad?", "Blunted", "For Doz That Slept" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(First ever 2LP pressing!)

CommonBE (deluxe edition with DVD) ... CD
GOOD/Geffen, 2005. Used CD/DVD .... $8.99
"I rap with the Passion of Christ, Ni**a, cross me!" BE isn't exactly a back-to-basics LP in the vein of his classic work for Relativity – but it is indeed a return to a focused, genuinely soulful, no BS approach – and it's a very welcome one at that! It seems like Com was a bit affected by some of the criticism folks had for the spacious, astral Electric Circus LP – if you ask us Common had no reason to apologize, but we'd be lyin' if we said we weren't hoping for another batch of tracks that sound like they could have been written on a front porch on the southside of Chicago. This is indeed that record – 12 tracks, few guest appearances, and a warm, consistent sound all the way through. There's a 3 track span on this album, from "Chi-City" through "Real People", that's seriously close to perfection. Welcome home, Common! Ruggedly produced by Kanye West, with a couple of stellar production contributions from Jay Dee! Other tracks include "The Corner" feat Last Poets, "Go!", "Faithful", "Testify", "Love Is. . .", "The Food (live)" (this great track has been circulating for a while since it was performed on Chappelle's Show, and we're thrilled Common and Kanye had the good sense to include it on the album), "They Say" featuring John Legend and "It's Your World (Part 1 &2)". This special edition version includes a DVD – featuring 40 minutes of bonus video footage – interviews, live captures, behind-the-scenes material and more! CD

Cormega feat The RevelationsRaw Forever (Best Of Cormega/Cormega X Revelations (2CDs) ... CD
Aura, 1990s/2000s/2011. Used 2CD .... $6.99
Queensbridge-bred veteran MC Cormega returns with an ambitious twist on the "Best Of" formula, to say the least – one disc featuring classic Cormega, and disc 2 featuring contemporary live funk & R&B crew The Revelations backing Cormega! The Best Of Cormega disc includes "Love Is Love", "Testament", "The Saga", "True Meaning", "Dirty Game", "Verbal Grafitti", "Get Out My Way" and more. The Revelations backed disc features 11 unlisted tracks with Lil Fame, Baby Pun, Tragedy Khadafi, KRS One, Big Daddy Kane, AZ, Nature and others – including backing vocals by Maya Azucena. CD

EminemCurtain Call – The Hits ... LP
Shady/Interscope, 1990s/2000s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold .... $4.99
A batch of some of the best and/or biggest hits from one of the most singular talents in the history of hip hop – love him or loathe him! Most of our favorite Shady tracks either pre-date many of the ones here or were buried on the LPs (such is the case with most greatest hits packages) but it's still worth picking up if you don't have all the LPs, particularly the lesser later couple! It includes a few new tracks, to boot. 17 tracks on 2LPs (including the intro): "Fack", "The Way I Am", "My Name Is", "Stan" (main version plus live bonus version feat Elton John), "Lose Yourself", "Without Me", "Like Toy Soldiers", "The Real Slim Shady", "Mocking Bird", "Guilty Conscience" feat Dr Dre, "Just Lose It" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Clean promo in a stickered sleeve.)

New GravDown To Earth (clean version) ... LP
Correct, 1996. Near Mint- .... $7.99
We dig this because it was one of our favorite Chicago hip hop records that came out of the mid 90s scene around town, with nice production by Dug Infinite, Andy C and No ID. And a guest appearances by Al Tariq of the Beatnuts. You may be digging for this because as near as we can tell, it was Kanye West's first production on wax. Either way, it's still dope. With "Snakebite", "City To City", "Though It Was On", "Line For Line", "One Puff", "Down To Earth" and "C'Mon", 11 tracks on this promo version. LP, Vinyl record album

Beastie BoysTo The 5 Boroughs ... CD
Capitol, 2004. Used .... Just Sold Out!
Another strong set by the Beastie Boys – who would obviously rather put out a very good album every five or six years, than a sub par album every year or two! Arguably, the Beasties broke all the of the ground that they ever will prior to 2004, but that doesn't mean that they're done making solid records. If To The 5 Boroughs is any indication, there's still quite a bit of life left in the Boys as they approach 40. Prior to each infrequent LP, we're worried that the post Paul's Boutique world of difficult, expensive sample clearance will kill the layers of pop pastiche sound bites that made P's B such a brilliant statement, and with this one we're once again very pleasantly surprised at what they're able to pull off. The soul and funk samples are still piled on in abundance (albeit with a more electro studio built backdrop), as are the block rockin' party rhymes, even if the tone's serious in spots. There are no attempts at funky jazz or punk rock this time – this may be the Beasties' most classifiable hip hop album. Add it to that ever growing list of good-to-great albums by aging artists who were coaxed back into the game in part by their feelings about post 9/11 politics. Tracks include the great throwback single "Ch-Check It Out", "Right Right Now Now", "3 The Hard Way", "It Takes Time To Build", "Rhyme The Rhyme Well", "Hey F**k You", "Triple Trouble", "Oh Word?", "That's It That's All", "All Lifestyles", "Shazam!", "An Open Letter To NYC" and more.
