New Compton's Most WantedIt's A Compton Thang ... CD
Orpheus/Universal (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... Around November 19, 2014
For a long time we thought of these guys as a second rate NWA knock off, but this album's ultimately held up quite well to the test of time. Production by LA old school-er the Unknown DJ and CMW's DJ Slip give this set a nice stripped down west coast sound, with MC Eiht holding up his own end of things (and taking up the slack for the Chill MC) on the mic. 11 tracks in all, including "It's A Compton Thang", "One Time Gaffled Em", "This Is Compton", "Late Night Hype", "Duck Sick", "I'm Wit Dat" and "Rhymes Too Funky Pt 1 (Live at Lonzo's 1988)".

New ComptonCompton's Soul ... CD
Peng (UK), 2012. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet surprise from Andy Compton of The Rurals – work that's even more profoundly steeped in deep soul atmosphere – with Compton collaborating with seductive female vocalists for one of the sultriest underground soul sets we've heard in a while! This is one of those records that you'd expect to be good, given Andy's previous work – and it's actually a knockout! It's elegant and slow cooking, but it's too hypnotic and intoxicating to call it laidback. Smolders with keys, beats and bass with some jazzy soul flourishes. 9 of the 13 tracks are sung by Jaidene Veda, with some great spoken passages, too. Other vocalists include Diviniti, Kafele and Ladybird – and the singers write their own lyrics, giving the album a collaborative vibe as a whole. Includes "And It Rains", "Bluenotes", "Believing", "Imagined", "Where Do We Go", "Record By Record", "Tomorrow", "Oh Love I", "7 Days", "Soon" and "No Limits". CD
(Promotional sticker on booklet.)

Eazy-EEazy-Duz-It (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ruthless/Priority, 1988. Used ... $6.99
Eazy's first and best LP, from back when he was trying to kid everyone that he was still a teenager. As we all know, Eazy Duz It is a lot more of a companion piece to Straight Outta Compton than a standout solo album by Eazy E, with most the writing credits going to almost everyone involved with NWA EXCEPT Eazy. We all also know that that is a good thing, as the puckish MC was a much better mouthpiece than he was a great thinker. As an instrument of helium voiced anger and bile spewing, Eazy was pretty hard to top in those days (Eminem is Humpty Hump in comparison), and those tight, propulsive beats Dre and co. conjured up in the late 80s will keep our lowriders bouncing until the end of time. Truly a conceptual masterpiece, whether you're comfortable with that or not. Includes "Radio", "Eazy Duz It", "Boyz In The Hood", and "We Want Eazy", and the full 5150 Home 4 Tha Sick EP as bonus cuts. Remastered for the first time since the original release. CD

Willie HutchMack ... CD
Motown, 1973. Used ... $3.99
CD reissue of Willie Hutch's classic score about pimpin' & mackin'! The album (and film) is virtually a handbook for junior grade hoods, and we can remember back around 1990, when the first wave of candy-ass hardcore hip hoppers were coming up, this was sort of a holy grail. And it still holds up nicely, despite the legions of Compton wanna-bes who've overplayed it to death – with classic cuts like "Brothers Gonna Work It Out", "Vampin", "Theme Of The Mack", "Mack's Stroll/The Getaway", and "Slick".

NWAEfil4zaggin ... LP
Priority, 1991. Near Mint- ... $29.99
What sounded like a disappointing, and way too calculatedly provocative follow-up to Straight Outta Compton back in 1991 now sounds to us like the peak of Dr. Dre's career as a producer. The wall of sound here is massive – and dare we say it, almost up to par with the Bomb Squad's work with Public Enemy and the expatriate Ice Cube at the time. Plus, with the passing of the years, we can now find a lot more darkly humorous moments in all of the ultra-violent, damn near Clockwork Orange level mischief. Titles include "Real Niggaz Don't Die", "Niggaz 4 Life", "Appetite For Destruction", "Findum, F*ckum, & Flee", and many more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

New MasterfleetHigh On The Sea ... LP
Sussex, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
Unlike a lot of the east coast bands on the Sussex label, Masterfleet hailed from California – Compton, to be exact (which was also the home of The Jackson Sisters, The Sylvers, and War). This hard to find debut album is a mix of vocal soul tracks that have an East Coast sound, with other cuts that get a little bit more funk into the mix. The group's harmonies are quite good, and they really shine on a number of tracks. Titles include "Skull Stone", "Let Love Stand", "Well Phas I", "Until Tomorrow", and "Malfunction". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

New LAMPShades Of Green ... CD
Peng (UK), 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet collaboration from Lamp – a duo that features Andy Compton of The Rurals, and singer Ladybird – who's worked before with Soldiers Of Twilight and Llorca! Ladybird's got this sweetly slinky style of singing – and Compton's grooves here are a bit more laidback than with The Rurals – less house in the rhythms at times, and a bit more jazz funk – but of the smooth variety that really works perfectly with the lyrics! Some of The Rurals join in for backing, giving the record a solid groove that definitely holds up to the Compton legacy – and titles include "My People", "Love The Love", "Only You Know", "Fly Baby Fly", "Sun & The Moon", "Springtime", and "Your Fortune".
