New 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

Booker T & The MGsHip Hug-Her ... LP
Stax, 1967. Very Good- ... $19.99
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

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.

"Hip Shot" is even hipper – a real instrumental workout with some mighty nice guitar and organ lines throughout! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Milt JacksonMilt Jackson & The Hip String Quartet ... LP
Verve, 1968. Near Mint- ... $11.99
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

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

New 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

Andrew Oldham Orchestra16 Hip Hits (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $24.99
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".

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!

VariousIn Prison – Afro-American Prison Music From Blues To Hip Hop ... CD
Trikont (Germany), 1960s/1970s/1990s. Used ... $6.99
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.

VariousThird Unheard – Connecticut Hip Hop 1979-1983 ... CD
Stones Throw, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $6.99
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.

As the title says, it's a very hip ensemble! Roy plays with an introspective open-ended approach not always heard on his 60s sessions – and his group is a pretty soulful bunch of cats that includes George Adams, Marvin "Hannibal" Peterson, Elwood Johnson, and Taru Nakamura. The tracks have a running strident quality to them – especially the ones on which Carl Schroeder plays electric piano in a kind of Chick Corea-esque way. Titles include "Equipoise", "Tangiers", "You Name It", and "Satan's Mysterious Feeling". CD

Tracks are long, and although the recording quality's not up to a live Blue Note session, there's more than enough intensity in the playing to make up for it.

New Lord BuckleyMost Immaculately Hip Aristocrat ... CD
Straight/Rhino, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the strongest recordings ever made of the mad mad Lord Buckley! The album was issued in the late 60s for Frank Zappa's Straight label – but it features material recorded more than a decade before – at a time when Buckley was still alive, and one of the most bad-rapping comedian's to ever hit a stage. The approach is somewhat freer than some of Buckley's earlier sides – allowing the ersatz comedian a chance to really riff on a variety of subjects – talking with almost a jazz improvisational energy, in the way that made him a big favorite for the beat generation. The overall nature of the record is kind of hard to pin down – as it's not really comedy, just more of a freewheeling spoken session that's a bit jive, a bit beatnik, and plenty darn crazy! Titles include "The Raven", "The King Of Bad Cats", "Governor Slugwell", and "The Hip Einie". CD

A massive amount of classic sample tracks – all funky nuggets pulled from the legendary catalog of Stax Records! The set's the first American set we've ever seen to pay tribute to Stax from this perspective – and alongside a well-chosen batch of tunes, all remastered for the set, the collection also features track-by-track notes that tell the importance and revival of all the tunes within – helping identify later uses of the original grooves, while still showing plenty of respect for the originals! Titles include "Humpin" by The Bar-Kays, "Blind Alley" by The Emotions, "Ghetto Misfortune's Wealth" by 24 Carat Black, "Why Marry" by Sweet Inspirations, "Melting Pot" by Booker T & The MGs, "Hung Up On My Baby" and "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic" by Isaac Hayes, "Get Up & Get Down" by The Dramatics, "I Forgot To Be Your Lover" by William Bell, "Do The Funky Penguin" by Rufus Thomas, "As Long As I've Got You" by Charmels, "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" by David Porter, "After The Laughter Comes Tears" by Wendy Rene, and "Packed Up & Took My Mind" by Little Milton.

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.

Nascente (UK), 2005. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

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

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.

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

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..

Polydor/Hip-O Select, Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
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.

We've always thought we knew most of the great stuff from Paris at the time – but this series is honestly a really ear-opening one – as we're stunned at how many tracks here we've never heard before, and the way the collection goes way past the usual French female tunes that are often compiled and re-compiled so often – yet still have the same great grooves we love in work by France Gall or Francoise Hardy!

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

Al JawalaAl Jawala Live ... CD
Enja (Germany), 2013. New Copy ... $13.99 15.99
Very hip sounds from Al Jawala – a mix of Mid-East instrumentation and jazz, served up in a way that hearkens back to some of the earliest world jazz experiments of Ahmed Abdul-Malik, but definitely done with a contemporary twist as well! The reed work alone is wonderful – alto from Steffi Schimmer and tenor from Krischan Lukanow – set over bass, drums, and keyboards – sometimes used in dubby ways, sometimes a bit more straightforward and direct. Rhythms percolate in a wider range than the sounds you'd expect from straight jazz – showcasing some more contemporary modes from North Africa – and titles include "Cigani Salsa", "Talibanski Dub", "Backstabbers", "Taratata", "Fast & Furious", and "Blast Your Ghetto".
