Boogie Down ProductionsGhetto Music: The Blueprint Of Hip Hop ... LP
Jive, 1989. Near Mint- .... $29.99
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS and those raw beats and absolute prime end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect framework for KRS's clear, consise and tough rhymes. It's also the blueprint for some of the best, tough and street aware hip hop to come. Includes "Jack Of Spades", "The Blueprint", "You Must Learn", "Who Protects Us From You?", "Why Is That?", "Breath Control", and "Bo! Bo! Bo!". LP, Vinyl record album

Why is this album sooooo tough to find in an original pressing? Along with Showbiz and AG's first EP, and Lord Finesse's first couple releases, this album introduced the world to one of the longest running and most solid crews in hip hop, DITC. Classic and oft-imitated Diamond beats that laid the blueprint for so much hip hop to follow, including "Sally's Got A One Track Mind," "Best Kept Secret," "I'm Outta Here," "Check One, Two", "F*ck What U Heard", "Freestyle (Yo That's The Sh..)" and more! 2 LPs, with loads of great guest stars, like Lakim Shabazz, Big L, Fat Joe, and Brand Nubian.

Georgia Soul CouncilCostanza/Hip Shot ... 7-inch
Hip, 2013. New Copy .... $4.99
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

Jutta HippCool Dogs & Two Oranges – Jutta Hip 1954 ... LP
L+R Records (Germany), 1954. Near Mint- .... $38.99
Incredible postwar bop recordings by one of the hippest groups in Germany! During the 50s, pianist Jutta Hipp cut a number of straighter sides for Blue Note that were recorded in the US – but this set features earlier German recordings, some later issued by Blue Note – all done with a killer quintet that features a young Joki Freund on tenor sax and Emil Mangelsdorff on alto! Jutta's core trio features Hans Kresse on bass and Karl Sanner on drums – but the real charm of the records is the horn players – working with amazing interplay that really makes the record shine – working in unison on many of the intros to the songs, cutting back and forth like a double-edged sword, then breaking out into wonderfully compact solos that easily rival the best of the west coast at the time! Titles include "Cleopatra", "Mon Petit", "Yogi", "Variations", "Laura", "Simone", "Two Oranges", and "Cool Dogs". LP, Vinyl record album

Andrew Oldham Orchestra16 Hip Hits (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca (Japan), 1964. New Copy .... $32.99
Andrew Oldham proves once again that his 60s pop music reach is wider than most – by taking on a whole host of tunes from artists he doesn't even have signed to contracts! The set's one of the most jaunty of the instrumental albums that Oldham recorded under his own name – and it offers Andrew the chance to come up with his own versions of tracks by The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Chuck Berry, and many others – served up in rock instrumental modes that mix guitar, electric bass, and larger orchestrations in arrangements by John Paul Jones and Oldham himself. Titles include "Blowin In The Wind", "Needles & Pins", "Chapel Of Love", "I Wanna Be Your Man", "My Boy Lollipop", "Then He Kissed Me", and "You're No Good". CD also features 16 more bonus tracks – a range of other 60s pop productions by Oldham that includes "Shang A Doo Lang" by Adrienne Poster, "Young Love" by Bo & Peep, "To Know Him Is To Love Him" by Cleo, Lonely Weekends" by George Bean, and Oldham cuts that include "365 Rolling Stones", "Oh I Do Like To See Me On The B-Side", and "A Sad Story".

Schreiber includes some nicely personal memories along with the photos – some great scene-setting words that make the pictures even more vivid than you might think. Includes photographs of De La Soul, Biz Markie, Prince Paul, Slick Rick, Dwele, Redman, RZA, Jay Z, Method Man, Common, Beastie Boys, and many others – and the book features both color and black and white, and comes in a cool 7" square hardcover style!

Tower Of PowerHipper Than Hip – Yesterday Today & Tomorrow – Live On The Air & In The Studio 1974 ... CD
Real Gone, 1974. New Copy 2 CDs .... $21.99 23.98
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".

VariousDaora – Underground Sounds Of Urban Brasil – Hip Hop, Beats, Afro, & Dub ... CD
Mais Um Discos (UK), 2013. New Copy 2 CDs .... $22.99
A really excellent little compilation – one filled with great sounds from the Brazilian underground, and a really rich blend of music that goes way beyond the straighter booty-shaking beats you'll find on other collections of this nature! The music here is often much deeper than some of the straight bass and hip hop coming out of the Brazilian charts – and although lots of these cuts do draw on American production influences, the overall presentation is much rootsier – with echoes of the samba soul generation and other great stretches of Brazilian grooves – even when things are somewhat electric overall. The whole thing's a very much-needed push deeper into the contemporary underground in Rio and Sao Paulo – and titles include "Obrigahh" by Doncesao, "Talarico" by Ogi & Stereodubs, "Cada Um Cada Um" by Espiao, "Balboa Da Silva" by Bixiga 70, "Mulato" by Iconili, "Sou De Salvador" by Rodrigo Campos, "Etiopia" by Sambanzo, and "Cala Boca Menino" by Afroelectrico. 2CDs, and 32 cuts in all!

Beatheads, 1998. Near Mint- .... $7.99
8 track compilation that brings together some great lost stuff from the years 1986 and 1987. We're happy to see "Give Me The Mike" by Kings Of Pressure back on vinyl – if you heard the Kings of Pressure LP, this is a completely different, and far superior group than appeared on the LP, and definitely up there as one of the hard-to-find classics of the mid-80's. "P.S.K. Rock The B Boy Stance" by Royal Ron and Pimp Pretty is another rare classic with that spare early Schooly D production that still stands up 10+ years later. "Cold Gettin' Dumb 2" by Just Ice is a continuation of Part 1 from the first LP and one of the better Mantronix productions. Also includes "Freestyle (live)" by Shante & Biz Markie, "The Tragedy" by The Super Kids (produced by Marly Marl), and "Ya Better Bring A Gun" by King Tee – still one of King Tee's dopest tracks. No proper cover, but nice heavy vinyl! LP, Vinyl record album

The package features 13 tracks in all – with plenty rare numbers – and titles that include "Cantaloupe Woman" by George Braith, "The Village Caller" by Johnny Lytle, "Ca'Purange (Jungle Soul)" by Gene Ammons, "Love Theme From Spartacus" by Yusef Lateef, "Brother John" by Cannonball Adderley, "Muscle Soul" by Phil Upchurch, "Eastern Blues" by Gary Bartz, and the completely fantastic "Nuther'n Like Thuther'n" by Willis Jackson – worth the price of the LP alone!

Tramp (Germany), 2007. New Copy .... $11.99
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. Titles include "Nothin But A Party" by The Blenders, "Get Clean" by The Nitesounds, "Skins Funk" by Skin Williams & His Dominoes, "Bubbles" by The Boogoos, "Violet" by Hi-Fly Orchestra, "Rhythmo" by Dusty, "Get High" by Dr Sonnenschein, "Barbados Stew" by Caldonia, "First Time Around" by Sagaflex & Rudy Tee, and "Trip To Afrika" by Baccarola.

Nascente (UK), 2005. Used .... $4.99
A nice little dip into the sound of modern Latin music – one that offers up some of the more soul-based styles of the scene, and which nicely gets past some of the fluffier hits and chart tracks! There's a groove here that's clearly influenced by mainstream R&B and hip hop, but which also borrows plenty of influences from older Latin modes – in a style that makes for a nice criss-crossing of modes that's not dissimilar to the work in the Favela Booty Barrio scene these days. The set features 15 tracks in all – including "What You Won't Do For Love" by Ricky Gonzalez, "Dejate Llevar" by Arianna Puello, "Mas Papaya" by Sidestepper, "Rebelion" by Yo Arroyo, "Quien Tiro La Tiza" by Clan 537, "Voz Sensual" by Big Boy, and "Walk With Me" by Alex Wilson R&B Latino.

Shigeharu MukaiHip Cruiser (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
1979. New Copy .... Around June 4, 2014
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

New Dorothy AshbyHip Harp ... LP
Prestige, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great stuff by the grooviest artist ever to play a harp! Dorothy Ashby had a unique soul jazz harp sound, and although the instrument she used is probably more thought of in terms of bedtime lullabies, she actually makes it swing nicely, and with a soulful sound that draws back to traditions of African stringed instruments. Ashby was part of the same scene as Yusef Lateef, and like Lateef, she managed to use odd instrumentation in new contexts, to get a very unique jazz sound. This set's got harp and flute in the lead, and features the tracks "Pawky", "Charmaine", "Jollity", and "Back Talk". Also reissued with the original cover art! LP, Vinyl record album

New Boogie Down ProductionsGhetto Music: The Blueprint of Hip Hop (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Jive/FTG, 1989. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS and those raw beats and absolute prime end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect framework for KRS's clear, concise and tough rhymes. It's also the blueprint for some of the best, tough and street aware hip hop to come. Includes "Jack Of Spades", "The Blueprint", "You Must Learn", "Who Protects Us From You?", "Why Is That?", "Breath Control", and "Bo! Bo! Bo!". 4 bonus tracks on this CD version: "Jack Of Spades (Extended Remix)", "You Must Learn (Live From Caucus Mountain Remix)", "Jack Of Spades (Instrumental)" and "Jack Of Spades (BDP Movie Mix)".

New Don Patterson, Booker Ervin & Houston PersonLegends Of Acid Jazz – Just Friends (Four Dimensions/Hip Cake Walk/bonus tracks) ... CD
Prestige, 1964/1967. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two organ and tenor classics – back to back on a single CD – with some bonus cuts too! Four Dimensions is sweet soulful work from the legendary Don Patterson – a great Prestige set that has tenorist Houston Person joining the organist's hip trio with Pat Martino on guitar and Billy James on drums! The tunes have that loping soul jazz sound you'd find in Person's best early work at the time – a groove that's got plenty of bottom, but also a nice dose of lyricism as well – and the use of Houston's horn here seems to bring out a different approach from Patterson than you'll hear on his sessions with Booker Ervin. There's a very slight hardbop element at times – and titles include "Sandu", "Freddie Tooks Jr", "Red Top", and "Last Train From Overbrook". Next up are most of the tracks from the album Hip Cake Walk – a massive pairing of the tenor of Booker Ervin and Hammond of Don Patterson – a record that's got a very famous cover image, and which marks for one of the greatest meetings of soul and modernism at mid-60s Prestige Records! There's no bass at all on the set – just lots of quick, tight rhythm lines from Patterson on the pedals of the Hammond – mixed with drums from Billy James, and served up with plenty of space for Ervin to open up on tenor – blowing with more soul than on some of his modernist sides of the time! Oddly, the CD does not include the title cut – "Hip Cake Walk" – but does include the other 4 tracks from the album, "Rosetta", "Sister Ruth", "Under The Boardwalk", and "Donald Duck". CD also features more Ervin/Patterson material from the same session – the tracks "Sentimental Journey", "Theme For Dee", and "Just Friends". CD

BBE (UK), 1998. Used 3CDs .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible! This set is like finding a lost treasure chest filled with prime hip hop tracks from the late 80s and early 90s! Kenny Dope pulled together a huge batch of rare tracks tracks that you can never find on wax, and the folks at BBE packaged the huge 4LP set in a super heavy-duty box that looks very sharp. Despite the "mixed by" in the title, the tracks are all separate, and not mixed together. The set includes such classics as "She Fe MCs" by De La Soul & Tribe Called Quest, (from the Clear Lake Auditorium EP that was only available on promo until now), "Resurrection" by Common Sense (previously available on 12-inch only), "DWYCK" by Gang Starr and Nice & Smooth (up there as one of the best tracks by either group, and that's sayin' somethin'), "Fortified Live" by Mos Def, "Flava Of The Month" by Black Sheep, "Straight Out Of The Jungle" by Jungle Brothers, "The Rhythmologist" by Jamose, "Forsaken" by Breez Evahflowin', "Shining Star" by Sunz Of Man, "Everybody" by Basement Khemists, "You Gots To Chill" by EPMD, "Off The Books" by The Beatnuts & The Punisher, "Hard Rhymes" by The Wascals, "Hardcore Hip Hop" by Rawcotiks, "Uptown Anthem" by Naughty By Nature, and lots lots more! This 4 LP set features all the tracks in straight original mixes – and the 3CD set has the original tracks, plus a full CD of the tracks mixed live by Kenny. Both sets are amazing, and this motherlode of great stuff is Kenny's gift to the hip hop world! Incredible! (We thought we had to say it a second time.) 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.

Booker T's definitely getting a bit funky with this one – stepping off with the incredible title cut, a tune which really complicates the groove from the earlier years! The sound is still solid Memphis soul, with a raw instrumental vibe – but the grooves are even better than before, and the set includes loads of great original number written by the group – the kind of cool tunes they most likely cooked up while jamming live in the studio! These gems include the seminal "Hip Hug Her" – plus "Carnaby Street", "Booker's Notion", "Soul Sanction", "Double Or Nothing", and "Slim Jenkins' Place". But the covers are groovy too – and include a version of "Pigmy", plus "Groovin" and "Sunny". LP, Vinyl record album

The sides are some of Blossom's last great jazz recordings – and the set digs through the recordings to sift past some of the more cocktail-oriented material in the Daffodil years. Much of this stuff features Blossom alone, accompanying her sweet vocals on acoustic or electric piano – but a few other cuts feature some extra playing, like "Yardbird Suite", which includes tenor by Phil Woods, or "Baby, It's Cold Outside", done as a vocal duet with Bob Dorough! Other titles include "I'm Hip", "Inside A Silent Tear", "In Your Eyes", "You Fascinate Me", "Round About", and "I'm Shadowing You". 15 tracks in all. CD

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

Sublime sounds from Booker T & The MGs – the group's first five albums, laid out in one totally package! The progression in Memphis soul here is wonderful – as the package starts with the initial Green Onions set – a record that grew out of a famous jam from Book and the group in the studio – then moves through Soul Dressing, And Now, Hip Hug Her, and Doin Our Thing – records that get funkier and funkier at each new spin – showing how the group really tightened up their style, and helped transform the sound of instrumental soul in the process! Loads of great Hammond from Booker T, mixed with killer guitar from Steve Cropper – and a motherlode of great cuts that include "Green Onions", "Comin Home Baby", "Can't Be Still", "Home Grown", "Think", "Soul Jam", "Taboo", "One Mint Julep", "Plum Nellie", "Outrage", "Night Owl Walk", "Double Or Nothing", "Sunny", "Pigmy", "Slim Jenkins Place", "Hip Hug Her", "Soul Sanction", "The Beat Goes On", "Blue Or Green", "Ode To Billie Joe", "Never My Love", and "I Can Dig It".

EmArcy/Hip-O Select, Mid 50s. Used 4 CDs .... $43.99
The fluid trumpet of Clifford Brown – presented in a sparkling batch of master takes recorded for Emarcy Records in the 1950s! Brownie only made the scene a few short years, before his untimely early death – but while at Emarcy, he cut some truly revelatory music, the sort of trumpet-based jazz that went onto influence decades of later players, and which still sounds amazingly fresh and vibrant today! And although Universal issued a previous larger set of Brown's music, this 4CD set is nicely compact, and just focuses on the instrumental master takes – no vocal numbers, false starts, or alternates – pure classic Clifford all the way through. Titles are pulled from famous sessions with Max Roach, plus the classic Brownie With Strings album – although the main material here is pulled from seven albums that bore the Roach/Brown name, including tracks released after Clifford's death. 49 tracks in all, beautifully packaged with a 64 page book, in a limited edition tin cover!

Clifford Brown with Helen Merrill, Sarah Vaughan,Emarcy Master Takes Vol 2 – The Singers Sessions (3CD set) ... CD

A beautiful package of work from trumpeter Clifford Brown – his complete Emarcy master takes for work with three key singers in the 50s – Helen Merrill, Sarah Vaughan, and Dinah Washington! Brown's trumpet has a fluid, soulful style that's easily one of the most modern of the time – which makes for a really striking accompaniment for all vocalists included – especially Washington, who really breaks out from her bluesier modes on the Clifford Brown sides – making an argument here that the trumpeter really helped take her singing to the next level! The lavish 3CD package is in a cool 7" book-style cover, with a really beautiful full color book inside – and the set features a huge amount of work with Washington (2 of the 3 CDs) – with titles that include "No More", "I've Got You Under My Skin", "What Is This Thing Called Love", "Lover Come Back To Me", "I'll Remember April", and some ballad medley tracks from a jam session. The last CD features work with Sarah Vaughan and Helen Merrill – titles that include "April In Paris", "He's My Guy", "Jim", "I'm Glad There Is You", "I'm Crazy", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Falling In Love With Love", and "Yesterdays".

James Brown's funky singles from the mid-to-late 70s – Volume 10 in the complete singles series by The Godfather on Hip-O Select – and he's still killing it, one cut after another! This is a fascinating period for JB, in which the Godfather was still working hard, and more often than not, delivering top tier funky soul – but he wasn't hitting the charts like he used to, while those that he doubtlessly inspired were hitting pay dirt with his style. He's working in number of modes, from swaggering, taut and masterful takes on his personal stamp on classic funk, some bluesy soul, a rare couple of ballads, the Godfather covering the King and more. Even with the stylistic breadth, he never dispenses with what mad him great in the first place – doing his thing with a vigorous, sweaty groove unlike anyone else! Includes "Superbad, Supersick" (Parts 1 & 2), "Dooley's Junkyard Dogs", "Everbody Wanna Get Funky One More Time" (Parts 1 & 2), "I Refuse To Lose", "Bodyheat" (Parts 1 & 2)", "Home Again", "Give me Some Skin", "People Who Criticize", "Love Me Tender", "The Spank", "Nature" (Parts 1 & 2), "It's Too Funky In Here" and many more.

An amazing tribute to the late Michael Jackson – a beautifully done package that brings together all of his early solo albums for Motown – plus some great bonus tracks as well – all wrapped up in a book-styled cover with lots of notes and vintage photos! The music here is tremendous – the first stand-alone utterings of the King Of Pop, done in a style very similar to the Jackson 5 material at Motown, but sometimes a bit more pointed and personal too – a very different version of Michael than you may know from later years. The set features the full albums Got To Be There, Ben, Music & Me, and Forever Michael – plus two more albums of material recorded in the 70s, but released later – Looking Back To Yesterday and Farewell My Summer Love. There's a whopping 71 tracks in all – and bonus tracks include original mixes of "Melodie", "To Make My Father Proud", "Twenty Five Miles", "Here I Am", "Girl You're So Together", "Call On Me", "Farewell My Summer Love", "Touch The One You Love", and "Don't Let It Get You Down".

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! Titles include "Theme From Mahogany", "You're Good My Child", "Love Hangover", "Kiss Me Now", "After You", "Smile", "One Love In My Lifetime", and "I Thought It Took A Little Time". The folks at Motown/Hip-O Select are giving it the masterpiece love for this 2CD edition – with the original album plus 9 bonus tracks on Disc 1 – plus 15 more bonus tracks on Disc 2! Bonus tracks include non-album singles "Sorry Doesn't Always Make It Right (Single Version)" and "Together (Single Version)", single and alternate versions of the best album tracks, rare, unreleased sessions material that include a sweet cover of Elton John's "Harmony", "Go Where Your Mind Is", "Le Lo Li" and much more, plus an interview with Diana. 33 tracks on 2CDs plus a nice booklet..
