New Criminal Element OrchestraPut The Needle To The Record Again (needle voc, Sky King needle dub, electro beats, Sky King radio) ... 12-inch
Criminal, 1987. Very Good .... $3.99
A late 80s Arthur Baker production, and a sort of a side bar in the cut and paste scene that was going on in and around NYC at the time. Not as essential as some other early cut'n'paste pieces, but still a nice break mix with that early Arthur Baker feel, and some nice editing courtesy Gail Sky King. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Man ParrishHip Hop, Be Bop (Don't Stop) (ext)/Heatstroke (club) ... 12-inch
Importe/12, 1982. Very Good .... $9.99
A classic electro groove – and one of the tracks that's a contender for the origin of the word "hip hop"! A very nice groove with an early Arthur Baker feel, and the kind of cut that we slept on during the 80s, but which sounds totally great today! 12-inch, Vinyl record

MC Connection/C BankBurnin' For Another Shot/One More Shot (inst) ... 12-inch
Next Plateau, 1983. Very Good+ .... $3.99
An early 80s electro track, from one of the architects of the sound, John Robie, who had a hand in a number of the early Afrika Bambataa singles as well Arthur Baker's breakdance classics. An uptempo track with loads of nice synthesizers and electronic drums. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Jason MoranModernistic ... CD
Blue Note, 2002. Used .... $2.99
A solo set by pianist Jason Moran – but one that's got the intensity of a full group session! We honestly didn't know how we'd respond to this one, but we find the album to be really compelling – a great blend of tunes from sources that include James P Johnson, Arthur Baker, and Muhal Richard Abrams, next to some sparkling originals by Moran. Titles include "Planet Rock", "You've Got To Be Modernistic", "Passion", "Gansterism On A Lunchtable", "Time Into Space Into Time", and "Gentle Shifts South". CD
(BMG club pressing.)

Naked EyesFuel For Fire (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1984. New Copy .... $13.99
Sweet electro pop from Naked Eyes – a record issued late in their early 80s run, but one that actually brings together lots of bits from earlier years! There's some alternate versions and remixes on the set – and the whole thing is actually more beat and bassline-heavy than most of their other full length sets – showing a good ability to cross over to the clubs when they want to! Titles include "What In The Name Of Love", "Eyes Of A Child", "Sacrifice", "No Flowers Please", "Answering Service", "Me I See In You", "Flying Solo", and "Flag Of Convenience". CD features 7 bonus tracks – including "Two Heads Together", "Sacrifice (Arthur Baker 12" mix)", "What In The Name Of Love (ext)", and demo versions of "Sacrifice", "Babes In Armour", and "Fuel For The Fire".

New OrderConfusion (voc, confused beats, inst, rough mix) ... 12-inch
Factory (UK), Early 80s. Very Good+ (pic cover).... $4.99
A breakin' classic – and the record that almost got Arthur Baker into a lot of trouble! The track's presented here in the original pic sleeve version – very abstract cover art and label notes, almost obscuring Baker's original relation to the tune – quite possibly why he felt free to issue his own US version of the track! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Rockers RevengeWalking On Sunshine '82 (long, short)/Rockin On Sunshine/Acapella Sunshine ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1982. Very Good .... $0.99
Not strictly hip hop, but a breakin/electro/dance classic! With that early 80's club sound and sung vocals, produced by Arthur Baker and Jellybean. The 10-minute Rockin On Sunshine mix is a mostly instrumental version, with much more spare production, where each drum/bass/snyth line is allowed to go on for a minute without all the other orchestration. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Side 1 has a mark that clicks on track one. Label has some pencil.)
