Brian ColemanCheck The Technique Vol 2 – More Liner Notes For Hip Hop Junkies (paperback) ... Book
Wax Facts Press, 2014. New Copy ... $25.99 27.98
Golden age of hip hop historian Brian Coleman's second Check The Technique tome – the in-depth stories behind some of the greatest records of the 80s and early 90s – an even greater collection than the first volume! Coleman's approach is straight-forward and direct – chronicling a choice selection of 25 bonafide classic albums, breaking them down track-by-track, peppered by interviews with the artists, producers and other principle personalities behind the work, for the most honest histories that Coleman can get. Volume 2 uses a broader time frame than the previous collection, going as far back as 1981's Wild Style Breakbeats, and as recent as the late 90s for Mos Def & Talib Kweli's Black Star and The Coup's Steal This Album. Other records discussioned include The Cactus Album by 3rd Bass, A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing by Black Sheep, The Sun Rises In The East by Jeru The Damaja, Mantronix The Album, Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Links, Stetsasonic In Full Gear, Stunts, Blunts & Hip Hop by Diamond & The Psychotic Neurotics and more. Like the author's Check The Technique Vol 1 and Rakim Told Me, it's vital hip hop history, breezily readable and engrossing as can be. 525 paperback pages, and each chapter includes photos of the artists, the records and associated singles, and other choice historical tidbits. Essential! Book
(Initial copies are signed by author Brian Coleman! Quantities extremely limited – get 'em while we got em!)

The early 90s hip hop masterpiece from Diamond D! Along with Showbiz and AG's first EP, and Lord Finesse's first couple releases, this record helped introduce the world to one of the most solid crews in hip hop, DITC – who reigned supreme for years, making top quality records one after another. The classic and oft-imitated Diamond beats laid the blueprint for so much hip hop to follow – and the titles include "Sally Got A One Track Mind," "Best Kept Secret," "I'm Outta Here," "Check One, Two", "Freestyle (Yo That's The Sh..)" and more! Loads of great guest stars, like Lakim Shabazz, Big L, Fat Joe, and Brand Nubian. LP, Vinyl record album

Ovation, 1976. Very Good ... $19.99
A record recorded after Cleveland's more famous one for the Black Jazz label – but still with a nice funky feel, although the overall sound is a bit more produced. As with other albums from the time by Cleve, this one focuses on his funky instrumental stylings, and his talent as a nice soulful arranger, in the tradition of the Chess/Cadet scene that spawned him. Titles include "The Funky Cello", "Natural Rhythm", "Cleve's Jam", "Funky Funky Music", and "Bo's Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

GutsHip Hop After All ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), 2014. New Copy ... $22.99
Gritty sounds from Guts – a set that might well be great enough on its own if it were instrumental – but which also features a surprising amount of guest work from folks who include Masta Ace, Grand Puba, Tanya Morgan, Rah Digga, Cody Chestnutt, Murs, and others! The lyricists really push the album into the hip hop territory promised in the title – and remind us that although Guts' beats can have a farther-reaching approach at times, they work especially strongly in support of MCs – where the focus on acoustic roots and spare, simple elements almost take us back to some of the best production of the true school years. Titles include "Open Wide", "Man Funk", "Want It Back", "Roses", "Come Alive", "Looking For The Perfect Rhodes", "It's Like That", "Forever My Love", and "As The World Turns". CD

Daniel HumairTriple Hip Trip ... LP
Owl (France), 1979. Near Mint- ... $19.99
They certainly got the "hip" in this one right, because the album's one of Daniel Humair's greatest sessions – a real stunner from the end of the 70s, recorded in trio formation with vibes by David Friedman! Friedman had a great sound back at this point – a groove that was rhythmic sometimes, but modern at others – with echoes of Bobby Hutcherson's best work, but also a style that could fall off into its own chromatic hues – sounds that flurry around Humair's work on drums and percussion, but also seem to sometimes have a life of their own on the set. And while the bass work of Harvie Swartz is really appreciated on the more rhythmic numbers, there's almost a sense here that the album is being led by Freidman – so strong are his contributions to the set! Titles include "Circle Waltz", "Perimeters", "Bram Van Velde", "Rome Antique", and "A Swiss Celebration". LP, Vinyl record album

Ed PiskorHip Hop Family Tree – 1970s to 1981 ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2013. New Copy ... $19.99 27.99
A really wonderful little book – one that tells the tale of the early days of hip hop – but presents the story in the style of a Marvel Comics tabloid from the 70s! Ed Piskor's approach to the material is really unique – and he extrapolates historical details into an extended narrative of the scene in the South Bronx, Harlem, and Queens with colorful comic-style images. The book is surprisingly respectful, and really does a great job of juggling all the personalities and historical details – while still also finding a way to make the music come to life on the page, especially the live events that strongly helped to create hip hop in the years before it was recorded. The oversized book is 112 pages, on full color pages with a real comic book feel – and there's even a small discography at the back! Book

The fantastic second volume of the Hip Hop Family Tree – a beautiful graphic telling of the growth of hip hop on the New York scene – done in the style of some oversized Marvel Comics special edition from the 70s! The presentation is wonderful – and surprisingly really does the history justice – giving a visual flair to the kinds of information we've learned from Jeff Chang and others, with a similar way of linking things together so that the individual stories become part of a larger cultural development! The paper stock is great – pre-aged, like some vintage comic – but the cover is nice and strong, and really gives the book some heft – a mighty sweet oversized edition, with 112 full color pages!

Contemporary grooves, but all pretty darn funky – thanks to an excellent track selection by Tobias Kirmayer – the same guy who brought us the excellents Movements collections! A few of the titles here are of older vintage, but most are pulled from the same deep funk underground that Kirmayer services with his Tramp Records label – groups steeped in the styles of the 60s and 70s underground, but who serve up new work that's filled with plenty of funky roots! Despite the wide range of styles promised in the title, most of the titles here are on the grittier side of the spectrum – which is a good thing for us – and even the few tracks that are a bit more programmed still work with plenty of soulful and jazzy elements to keep things real throughout.

Fresh jazz funk beats from the Jazz Liberators – and top notch rhymes from the guests! "Vacation" with J-Live has the breezy groove you might expect from the title, but J Live's rhymes are all business. "Crazy MF" is actually pretty laidback, while "I Am Hip Hop" with Asheru is laidback, funky hip jam – Asheru rhymes with a hushed tone, but forthright lyricism, with easy going keys, some funky flute in the mix, a really kind of an unpredictable beat mirrored nicely by the bass. "Wink End" is a jazzy funk instrumental with some of the sweet, Jazz Lib piano! 12-inch, Vinyl record

New Booker T & The MGsPlay The Hip Hits – Previously Unissued Titles ... CD

It's like a dream come true! This CD contains 25 tracks of unreleased Booker T & The MGs material, cut during their classic years at Stax during the 60s, but never issued until the release of this CD! The tracks on the CD are all cover versions of other 60s tunes – "hip hits", if you will – but the group does as great a job as always with the material, taking each tune and investing it with a keen Memphis soul groove, thanks to Steve Cropper's raunchy guitar and Booker T's excellent organ! Titles include "Baby, Scratch My Back", "I Was Made To Love Her", "Day Tripper", "On A Saturday Night", "Spoonful", "Soul Man", "Downtown", "The Letter", and "Raunchy". Sounds like filler material – but it's great stuff by this classic instrumental group! CD

New Georgia Soul CouncilCostanza/Hip Shot ... 7-inch
Hip, 2013. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not the "Costanza" you might know from Seinfeld, but a tight funky number from the excellent Georgia Soul Council! The tune's got fast drums mixed with lots of Hammond riffing and tight horns – and the whole group shouts a catchy vocal bit at a few key spots. "Hip Shot" is even hipper – a real instrumental workout with some mighty nice guitar and organ lines throughout! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Roy HaynesRoy Haynes Hip Ensemble ... CD
Mainstream/Boplicity (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Drummer Roy Haynes works here with an ensemble that's definitely as hip as the title promises – a really righteous group that makes the album one of Roy's most spiritual records ever! Haynes was always a drummer who was really a cut above, even back at the start – but here, he really steps out strongly with a new musical vision for the 70s – working with a lineup that includes George Adams on tenor and flute and Marvin Hannibal Peterson on trumpet – but players who give the music a really bold feel, right from the start! The rest of the lineup is wonderful, too – as Carl Schroeder plays Fender Rhodes with this flowing vibe that's plenty soulful – alongside bass from Terud Nakamura and Mervin Bronson, conga from Lawrence Kilian, bongo from Elwood Johnson, and more drums from Haynes himself. Titles include a sublime reading of Stanley Cowell's "Equipoise" – plus "Tangiers", "You Name It", and "Satan's Mysterious Feeling". CD

New Shirley ScottLegends Of Acid Jazz (Hip Soul/Hip Twist) ... CD
Prestige, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two hip records from organist Shirley Scott – back to back on a single CD! First up is Hip Soul – early Shirley Scott at her best – working with husband Stanley Turrentine to craft a great set of soul jazz tracks! The mood is laidback and easygoing, and honestly, it's Turrentine's deeply soulful solos that really make the set crackle – bringing an edge to the record that Shirley didn't always have, even on her earlier recordings with Eddie Lockjaw Davis. Stan's tone is superb – with a subtle rasp that really breaks open the sound – and his playing is extremely well-handled – always keeping us on the edge of our seat, blowing as he goes with incredible confidence and creativity! The rest of the group features Herb Lewis on bass and Roy Brooks on drums – and titles include "Trane's Blues", "Hip Soul", "411 West", "By Myself", and "Stanley's Time". On Hip Twist, Shirley's joined by husband Stanley Turrentine, whose tenor work on any Scott album always takes it to the next level! Stan's tone is still nice and raw here – blowing out some hard and soulful lines that are the perfect complement to Shirley's more composed work on the Hammond. The rest of the group includes George Tucker on bass and Otis Finch on drums – and tracks include "Hip Twist", "Violent Blues", "That's All", "All Tore Down", and "Rippin & Runnin". CD

A damn classic entry in the Super Breaks series from BGP – one that's filled with crucial sample cuts from the old school – some really wonderful funky nuggets, brought together here as a great reminder of the tracks that first got us digging back in the day! There's less of the totally obscure numbers here than you might find on other Super Breaks volumes, but things aren't totally mainstream either – and the compilers have not only done a great job of pulling together tracks that were really important for hip hop, but have also managed to put a really fresh spin on the music altogether – reminding us once again that even in the age of digital music, nothing beats a well-done compilation! Titles include "Shifting Gears" by Johnny Hammond, "Mary Mary" by The Monkees, "Scratchin" by Magic Disco Machine, "It's Just Begun" by Jimmy Castor, "Africano" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Apache" by Incredible Bongo Band, "Got To Get A Knutt" by New Birth, "Get Up & Dance" by Freedom, "Super Sporm" by Captain Sky, "Who Is He & What Is He To You" by Creative Source, "Funky President" by James Brown, "Blow Your Head" by The JBs, "Johnny The Fox" by Thin Lizzy, "Let A Woman Be A Woman Let A Man Be A Man" by Dyke & The Blazers, "The Clapping Song" by Shirley Ellis, and "Get Ya Some" by Melvin Sparks.

New GutsHip Hop After All (with download) ... LP
Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Gritty sounds from Guts – a set that might well be great enough on its own if it were instrumental – but which also features a surprising amount of guest work from folks who include Masta Ace, Grand Puba, Tanya Morgan, Rah Digga, Cody Chestnutt, Murs, and others! The lyricists really push the album into the hip hop territory promised in the title – and remind us that although Guts' beats can have a farther-reaching approach at times, they work especially strongly in support of MCs – where the focus on acoustic roots and spare, simple elements almost take us back to some of the best production of the true school years. Titles include "Open Wide", "Man Funk", "Want It Back", "Roses", "Come Alive", "Looking For The Perfect Rhodes", "It's Like That", "Forever My Love", and "As The World Turns". LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent batch of lost Japanese fusion from the 70s – headed up by trombonist Shigeharu Mukai, and featuring some great instrumentation that includes Brazilian percussion, tenor sax, and plenty of sweet electric keyboards! The sound here is totally great – a soulful fusion groove to rival the best American work of the generation – but quite possibly even better, as the whole thing has that impeccable production style that made so many of the Japanese fusion albums of the time so great. And while you might think that a trombone is an unlikely instrument to be leading a sweet electric set – guess again, because Shige really makes the whole thing work! Titles include "Nimuoro Neina", "Hip Cruiser", "Once I Loved", "The Way", "V 1 Funk", "Manipura", and "Coral Eyes". CD

A stunning package for a wonderful collection – volumes one and two of Hip Hop Family Tree – both great volumes that tell the tale of the early days of hip hop – but presents the story in the style of a Marvel Comics tabloid from the 70s! Ed Piskor's approach to the material is really unique – and he extrapolates historical details into an extended narrative of the scene in the South Bronx, Harlem, and Queens with colorful comic-style images. The book is surprisingly respectful, and really does a great job of juggling all the personalities and historical details – while still also finding a way to make the music come to life on the page, especially the live events that strongly helped to create hip hop in the years before it was recorded. The special package features both oversized, full-color books with exclusive new cover art – in a super-cool slipcover – and a bonus comic book that teams up Spike Lee, Rob Liefeld, and Eazy E! Book

New Tower Of PowerHipper Than Hip – Yesterday Today & Tomorrow – Live On The Air & In The Studio 1974 ... CD
Real Gone, 1974. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Killer work from Tower Of Power – captured live in the studio, and with a frenetic funky groove that's even tighter than some of their studio material from the time! At their core, these guys were always first and foremost a live, lively ensemble with a razor-sharp approach to funk – one that comes through beautifully here in the album's heavy drums, searing horn parts, and sharp mix of guitar and keyboard lines – equally great on the instrumental cuts and the vocal ones! The previously-unissued performance was very well-recorded in 1974 – done for WLIR radio in New York, and finally great to have out after all these years. Titles include live versions of "Oakland Stroke", "Soul Vaccination", "Clean Slate", "You're Still A Young Man", "Just When We Start Makin It", "Down To The Nightclub", "What Is Hip", "Time Will Tell", and "Squib Cakes".

Sweet sweet Quincy! Although the Q's probably best remembered round these parts for his funky 70s work or classic 60s soundtracks, we also have to admit that we love him for his mellow grooves – the sly and seductive tunes that often hid out amidst his albums of the 70s and 80s, and which also featured early work by singers that later went onto much greater fame. This excellent set brings together 17 of those wonderful mellow moments – stretching back to some of Quincy's important collaborative A&M efforts of the 70s, and running up to some of his best work of more recent vintage. Titles include "Superwoman" and "Love Me By Name", with Patti Austin; "Body Heat", with Leon Ware; "I'm Gonna Miss You In The Morning", with Luther Vandross & Patti Austin; "Velas" and "The Getaway", with Toots Thielemans; "How Do You Keep The Music Playing" and "Baby Come To Me", with Patti Austin & James Ingram; "The Places You Find Love", with Siedah Garrett, Chaka Khan, & Herbie Hancock; "The Secret Garden", with El DeBarge, James Ingram, Al B Sure, & Barry White; "Sax In The Garden", with Barry White & Kirk Whalum; "Turn Out The Lamplight", with George Benson; and "Just Once", with James Ingram.

MiraclesRenaissance/Do It Baby (with bonus track) ... CD
Tamla/Hip-O Select, 1973/1974. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Incredible early-to-mid 70s albums from The Miracles – Renaissance and Do It Baby – plus a bonus Tom Moulton remix! First up, Renaissance truly is one, and proof that the the group could do amazing things away from Smokey Robinson! Of course, they've got a heck of a lot of great help on this set – from some of Motown's best, like Willie Hutch, Fonce Mizell, Freddie Perren, and even Marvin Gaye, who wrote and produced the album's standout track "I Love You Secretly", a stone treasure that's as good as any of Marvin's recordings from the time! The whole set is great, though, filled with wonderful songs that never got their due – and which will make this one stand for years as a treasure to fans of harmony soul! Titles include "I Didn't Realize The Show Was Over", "I Love You Secretly", "I Don't Need No Reason", "Don't Let It End", and "What Is A Heart Good For". The follow-up Do It Baby is another overlooked post-Smokey gem – a beautifully display of Miracles' unmatched soul harmony mastery – on a record that's just about as good as anything they did with Smokey. This one actually reminds us a lot of some of our favorite Philly albums coming out at the same time! Arrangements are handled by James Carmichael, Freddie Perren, and Willie Hutch – and it's heavy with slinky smooth soul groovers like "Do It Baby", "You Are Love", "What Is A Heart Good For", and "Give Me Just Another Day", one of a few great cuts on the record written by Leon Ware! This much needed Hip-O Select package includes a bonus track, too: Tom Moulton's mix of "Do It Baby" – which extends that classic cut to more than 7 minutes of dancefloor soul greatness! CD

Get Hip, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
A stunning array of sounds from a very underground scene in the 60s – work from the surprising state of Arkansas, a place we never would have thought to turn for nuggets like these! The is a heady blend of guitar and garage modes – with styles that maybe echo some of the better Texas underground material of the time, but which also takes us north to some of the best Wisconsin and Minnesota groups too. Yet unlike those local scenes, Arkansas hardly ever got its due back in the day – which makes this package all the more exciting – filled with surprises throughout, and supported by notes and information on every track. Titles include "Leaf On A Tree" by Barefacts, "Hit It" by The Shades, "You're My Girl" by Coachmen, "Wine Wine Wine" by Blue & The Gray, "Can't You Tell" by Vycounts, "It's Called Love" by Blues Foundation, "Apple Of My Eye" by Marion Deaton Group, and "Upsetter" by The Xciters.

New James BrownJames Brown Singles Vol 3 – 1964 to 1965 ... CD
King/Hip-O Select, Mid 60s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the most exciting years of James Brown's career so far – for a whole host of reasons! First off, James is really experimenting with different styles here – not just the roots of funk that would emerge more fully blown later in the 60s – but also bits of jazz as well, heard here on a number of instrumental, organ-heavy tracks! Added to the stylistic excitement is the fact that during these years, James was recording for more than one label – issuing work on Smash Records as well as King, thanks to some legal wrangling – a situation that further helped to open up his groove! This package may well be the most exciting so far in Hip-O's singles series on Brown – filled with both a and b-sides from the King and Smash years 1964 and 1965 – vocal and instrumental, rough and smooth alike! Collection features 36 tracks in all, plus full notes on each tune – with titles that include "So Long", "Out Of The Blue", "Soul Food (parts 1 & 2)", "Please Please Please (live)", "Again", "How Long Darling", "Have Mercy Baby", "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag (parts 1 & 2)", "I Got You (I Feel Good)", "Lost Someone", "I'll Go Crazy", "Think", "Try Me", "Tell Me What You're Gonna Do", "Out Of Sight", "Maybe The Last Time", "Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf", "Fine Old Foxy Self", and "Devil's Hideaway".

Essential peak solo material from Diana – her aptly self-titled set from 1976, showing Ms. Ross stretching out stylistically with incredible style and with beautiful vocals! Diana '76 is among her best work of the 70s – and that's saying something! It opens with the gorgeous "Theme From Mahogany" – and given that this album's release was timed well with the movie, you could be forgiven to think it could be a quickie product to ride the film's commercial coattails. Not at all! In fact, this album is a major creative triumph – songs ranging from elegant balladry, to jazzy soul, to sultry disco. It's one of those rare few cases in which a great artists covers miles of stylistic territory and reins it all into a consistent whole. We always loved this album, but re-approaching after all these years, we think it's a real masterpiece!

Rob AgerbeekHome Run ... LP
Medium (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
A definite home run from Dutch pianist Rob Agerbeek – a hip set recorded in 1971, and one that's done with a very soulful groove! The group's a quintet, and Rob really sparkles in this setting – pushing the players with a subtle skill that recalls Horace Silver at his Blue Note best – especially in the way that Agerbeek mixes upbeat grooving with more sensitive sounds on the set! Other players include Dick Vennik on tenor and flute, Willem Reinen on flugelhorn, Rob Langereis on bass, and Eric Ineke on drums – a really great group of players who fit toghether wonderfully here – pushing the grooves of the tunes strongly forward with warm energy, but also breaking out with some sharp solos of their own. Titles include the funky classic "The Chair Dance" – plus "Little Miss Dee", "Just Robbish", "Minor Rush", and "The Blue Countess". LP, Vinyl record album

Edip AkbayramEdip Akbayram ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
A seminal debut set from Edip Akbanyram – a 70s Turkish singer whose music is every bit as compelling as arabesk rock by Baris Manco or Erkin Koray! Like both of those artists, Edip mixes older Anatolian roots with a freakier, fuzzier style from the psych generation – mixing electric guitar with offbeat Eastern phrasing, rootsy percussion, and very hip production that gives the whole record a sound that's as bold as it is brooding! Like Koray at his best, the music often has a bit of a groove – not entirely funky, but with these strong undercurrents that really move us – despite the barrier of language. Titles include "Bosu Bosuna", "Dumanu Dumanu Oy Bizim Eller", "Kukredi Cimenler", "Seve Beni Beni", "Deniz Ustu Kopurur", "Yakar Inceden Inceden", and "Daglar Dagladi Beni". CD
