Boogie Down ProductionsGhetto Music: The Blueprint of Hip Hop ... CD
Jive, 1989. Used ... $6.99
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!". CD

Red Label, 1985. Near Mint- (reissue)... $14.99
Late 90s reissue of the classic cut and paste single from the mid 80s plus "The Motorcade Sped On", a long sought-after track that was previously only available on a promo 7-inch. Double Dee & Steinski mix together dozens of samples of everything from JFK speeches and cartoon bits to movie dialog and even Mae West over a bed of classic break beats and early hip hop tracks. The Payoff mix is based on Whiz Kid's "Play That Beat", Lesson Two uses lots of James Brown, Lesson Three has everything else. "The Motorcade Sped On" is a funny collection of vocal samples from new reports of the Kennedy assasination that starts off with Ed McMahon introducing a Kennedy speech with "Heeeere's Johnny!" 12-inch, Vinyl record

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 ... $11.99
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 Daniel HumairTriple Hip Trip ... LP
Owl (France), 1979. Near Mint- ... $24.99
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

Main FlowHip-Hopulation ... LP
Brick/Wanna Battle, 2004. Near Mint- 2LP ... $6.99
Main Flow's long awaited LP – waving the flag for lyrically-centered underground hip hop. Main Flow's claim to fame so far, other than his early work with the under appreciated Mood, is his mixtape and singles appearances. He was wise to try to bring that vibe to his debut LP – which is essentially a series of duets with other respected MCs, rather than try to carry a thematic vibe from front to back. Of course that makes for an uneven whole, but the highs are well worth the listen. Guests include Talib Kweli, Raekwon, Planet Asia, Black Thought, Defari, Killah Priest and lots more. Tracks include "Loving The Game", "The Wire", "Classic", "Such A Fool", "Dice Roll", "Worldwide", "Mister Know It All", "She Likes Me", "Delivery Tactics" and lots more. LP, Vinyl record album

Shigeharu MukaiHip Cruiser (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $24.99
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

Mark MurphyHip Parade ... LP
Capitol, 1960. Very Good ... $7.99
A real turning point in the career of singer Mark Murphy – a great session for Capitol from 1960, done with creative arrangements from Bill Holman, and a sound that opens up strongly from Murphy's Decca years! In a way, the record is one of the first times that Murphy really got to do what he wanted to on record – and working with Holman, he really opens up in the inventive, expressive modes that would mark the Murphy sound of later years – a style that was light years ahead of other male singers in jazz! Some tracks have small combo backings, others have big band, and a few feature support from a larger chorus – but throughout the entire set it's clear that Mark's not just a run of the mill pop singer on Capitol, and can sing here with a level of jazz that few others on the label ever matched! Titles include "Firefly", "Lonesome Town", "Catch A Falling Star", "All The Way", "Venus", "Send For Me", and "Personality". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

VariousIn Prison – Afro-American Prison Music From Blues To Hip Hop ... CD
Trikont (Germany), 1960s/1970s/1990s. Used ... $4.99
A unique little collection – as you might guess from the title – one that explores prison themes in a variety of different styles, from blues on up through soul, funk, and hip hop! The groove here is relatively contemporary – and most work here is from the 60s onwards, with a strong stop in the late 60s/early 70s period before a jump up to some key prison-themed recordings from 90s hip hop. And although a few of the artists here were actually behind bars at the time of the recordings, most of the work is from the outside looking in – recorded by bigger soul stars raising awareness of the difficulties of incarceration in the US. As usual with Trikont, the collection is extremely well put together – with plenty of notes in English to support its song choices and ideals – and an expanded set list with 19 tracks that include "Claimin I'm A Criminal" by Brand Nubian, "Work Song" by Nina Simone, "Behind Enemy Lines" by Dead Prez, "Berta" by Big Lousiana & Rev Rogers, "Pardon Denied Again" by Robert Pete Williams, "Court Room" by Last Poets, "Short Eyes" by Curtis Mayfield, "Locked Up" by Akon, "IG On Death Row" by Tupac, "Free" by The Soul Snatcherz, "Prisoner's Plea" by Billy Boy Arnold, and "Run Charlie Run" by The Temptations.

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.

VariousThird Unheard – Connecticut Hip Hop 1979-1983 ... CD
Stones Throw, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $4.99
Great stuff, once again unearthed by Stones Throw! Third Unheard focuses with unflinching devotion on a scene that even the most diehard hip hop heads probably have little grounding in – Connecticut hip hop from the music's earliest days as an official movement – the end of the 70s and beginning of the 80s! Much of it has that Sugarhill post disco, stream of conciousness block rockin' style, but what makes this stuff so charming is how completely raw and unadorned of studio polish it all is. You'll recognize a few of the names, particularly Mr. Magic, but this is for the most part the deepest of the early hip hop underground. Raw, unvarnished, and funky as hell! Tracks include "Rappin' With Mr. Magic" and "Potential 1980" by Mr. Magic, Pookey Blow's "Get Up And Go To School", "Earth Break" by Mr. Magic AND Pookey Blow, "Party People" (remix) by Rappermatical 5, "Be-Bop Convention Theme" by Forum Band, "I Just Wanna Dance" by Cuzz Band, "Showdown Rehearsal" (live) by 2nd Showdown Crew and more!

VariousThis Is My Thing! – Deep Funk/Jazz Breaks/Hip Hop/Afrosoul – Selected By Tobias Kirmayer ... CD
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.

New Milt JacksonMilt Jackson & The Hip String Quartet ... LP
Verve, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very groovy album that has Milt playing jazzy vibes with a tight string quartet that does more than just back him up – they sort of solo and provide some rhythm, too, and give the whole album a very very cool sound. The rest of the lineup's great, too, because James Moody is all over the place laying down some great solos, and because Cedar Walton plays piano, and Ron Carter plays bass. We passed this up for years because it looked weak, but it's actually better than many of Milt Jackson's "straighter" LPs from this time, and is a perfect blend of styles with that great groovy late 60's Verve sound! Tracks include "A Walkin' Thing", "In Walked Bud", "A Little Too Much", "You Got to Pay When the Deal Goes Down" and "New Rhumba". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousThis Is My Thing! – Deep Funk/Jazz Breaks/Hip Hop/Afrosoul – Selected By Tobias Kirmayer ... LP
Tramp (Germany), 2007. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

New VariousDaora – Underground Sounds Of Urban Brasil – Hip Hop, Beats, Afro, & Dub ... CD
Mais Um Discos (UK), 2013. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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!

New Dorothy AshbyHip Harp ... LP
Prestige, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... 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

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

Decca (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

Hip-O, 1978. Used ... $8.99
The second volume in the Costello Show series of classic era Elvis Costello live – the complete Live At Hollywood High set from Elvis Costello & The Attractions released in it's entirety for the first time ever! The set was recorded at the auditorium of the school, coming hot on the heels of the release of the classic This Years Model album, and the set features both the fast and fiery Elvis style of the era and also manages to show his strength with melodies – plus his nearly unrivaled way of consolidating a couple decades of the best rock & roll and r&b influences into a tight package all his own. 20 tracks in all: the great solo piano backed version of "Accidents Will Happen", plus "Mystery Dance", "Living In Paradise", "Party Girl", "You Belong To Me", "Radio Radio" (soon after the Saturday Night Live situation)", "Pump It Up", "Goon Squad", "No Action", "Watching The Detectives", "Miracle Man", "This Year's Girl" and many more.

Diana RossDiana Ross (1976) (limited 2CD special edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1976. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 29.98
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..

New Diana RossTouch Me In The Morning (expanded edition – with bonus unreleased To The Baby album) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1973. Used 2CD ... $13.99
One of the more righteous albums from the early years of Diana Ross' solo career – a set that really has her moving past the familiar Motown groove of previous years, into a vibe that really shows the label's new California influence! The tracks here often feature expansive arrangements that mix soul and larger orchestrations – arranged by Gene Page, James Carmichael, Gil Askey, and Michael Randall – all of whom preserve the class that Diana's always had in her music, while still also opening things up to some of the more thoughtful elements of 70s soul. The album includes a nice medley of Oscar Brown Jr's "Brown Baby" and Marvin Gaye's "Save The Children", plus a version of "Imagine", and the tracks "Leave A Little Room", "I Won't Last A Day Without You", "All Of My Life", and "Touch Me In The Morning". Expanded CD version is amazing, too! CD 1 features the full original album, plus 5 more previously unreleased bonus tracks – alternate versions of "Touch Me In The Morning", "All Of My Life", "Leave A Little Room", and "We Need You". Then, CD 2 features the stunning To The Baby album – a previously unreleased effort that's appearing here for the first time ever, really continuing the vibe of Touch Me In The Morning! Titles include "A Wonderful Guest", "Young Mothers (alt)", "Part Of You", "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", "To The Baby", "A Wonderful Guest", "Imagine/Save The Children", and "Brown Baby (alt)" – plus two more bonus tracks, "When We Grow Up" and "Kewpie Doll".

Lalo SchifrinMission Impossible ... CD
Dot/Hip-O, Late 60s. Used ... $7.99
A familiar record – but a fantastic one! You probably all know the famous theme to "Mission Impossible" – Lalo Schfrin's beautiful jazzy number, with three piano notes revolving over and over again with incredible intensity – and the rest of the record is every bit as great, filled with a wonderful mix of groovy styles! The groove ranges from fast bossa to groovy 60s crime jazz to sparer tenser numbers that still manage to move nicely – and listening to the record over the years, our ears are always happily surprised at the level of genius that was allowed expression in the guise of a normal TV soundtrack. Plus, this CD also features a few tracks from the hard-to-find More Mission Impossible soundtrack – for a total of 14 cuts that includes "More Mission", "Self Destruct", "Intrigue", "Jim On The Move", "The Plot", "The Sniper", "Danger", and "Barney Does It All".

New Chuck BerryYou Never Can Tell – His Complete Chess Recordings 1960 to 1966 (4CD set) ... CD
Chess/Hip-O Select, 1960s. Used 4 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
The complete Chuck Berry recordings for Chess in the first half of the 60s – incredible stuff all the way through, richer, and more varied stylistically than his earlier proto rock/punchy rhythm & blues of the mid-to-late 50s – more than 100 tracks on 4CDs in this beautifully designed box for Hip-O Select! The earlier tracks from the 60s find Chuck expanding on his 50s hit sounds without sacrificing the gut level excitement – the simple chording, pummeling & rumbling rhythms continue, but there's a measure of control and a kind of, we hate to say it, but, maturity that permeates – and he's able to pull off more of a blues based mode as the years went on and he got a little older, without putting the old firebrand out, by any stretch of the imagination. That vibe comes especially into play with the piano of Johnnie Johnson and sax by Leroy Davis and others, and the box set includes the joint numbers with Bo Diddley from later in the decade, the classic Live In London recordings from '65, and tons of great stuff. Incredible material that's too often overlooked in Berry's canon – in a box set that's easy on the eyes, too! The first couple discs features recordings mostly from 60 & 61, and jumps to 63 or 64 at the end, while discs 3 & 4 features work from 63-66. 108 tracks in all, quite a few of which have never been officially released, with titles including "Drifting Blues", "Stop And Listen", "Adulteen", "The Mand And The Donkey", "Go Go Go", "Trick Or Treat", "Brown Eyed Handsome Man", "Johnny B Goode (Live)", "You Never Can Tell", "Fraulein", "You Two", "No Particular Place To Go", "She Once Was Mine", "Welcome Back Pretty Baby", "Wee Hour Blues", "Ramona Say Yes", "Lonely School Days" and much much more!
