Shan, and "Go On Girl" by Roxanne Shante. More by Salt N Pepa, Big Daddy Kane, 7A3, and Rick James.

New MC ShanBridge/They Used To Do It Out In The Park ... 12-inch
Cold Chillin, 1985. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
If you want to appreciate BDP's "South Bronx", you've gotta hear this one. If ya don't know...: MC Shan recorded "The Bridge", saying hip hop started in Queensbridge, Queens. BDP replied with "South Bronx", setting the record straight (as we see it). "South Bronx" uses the same beat and replies to "The Bridge" almost line for line. – MC Shan then replied with "Kill that noise" – followed by the final word from BDP with "The Bridge Is Over", Shan's first single was "Feed The World" on MCA (which explains KRS's line "You got dropped off MCA, cuz the rhymes you wrote was wack" on South Bronx.) We won't even begin with the other entries in the Queens/Bronx Battle like MC Poet's "Beat You Down", which was directed at KRS. (And somehow Poet returned to the game as a member of Screwball, with a new LP on Tommy Boy.) . . . And you thought the LL/Canibus/Wyclef battle went on too long! All that trivia aside, the record is up there as one of our favorites from the class of '85. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Vinyl has some silver paint marker in the runouts on both sides.)

New MC ShanDown By Law (expanded 2CD version) ... CD
Cold Chillin, 1987. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the benchmark LPs of battle ready rhymes and block rockin' Cold Chillin' beats – MC Shan's Down By Law, produced by the Marley Marl – in a deluxe 2CD version packed with rare 12" versions that appear on CD for the first time ever! Down By Law was the first of Shan's solid trio of LPs for Cold Chillin', uncommonly blunt in both the storytelling and rhyme schemes. A long slept on gem! Original LP tracks include the classic "Bridge", plus "Down By Law", "Left Me-Lonely", "MC Space" "Living In The World Of Hip Hop", "Another One To Get Jealous Of" and "Kill That Noise". Disc 1 also includes the previously unreleased tracks "Kill That Noise/Down By Law" (Live on WERS), "Live Routine" (broadcast) feat Biz Markie, Marley Marl Scratch demos and more!

New MC Shan featuring Michael Meyers.MC Shan &The Queens Connect (edit, street, inst)/MC's Freeze (edit, street, inst) ... 12-inch
Franchise, 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
After a few years offf, MC Shan makes a better comeback than we would have ever expected, with some nice production from Marley Marl. (And we're happy to see he's avoided the Steady B route.) The cut here is "MC's Freeze", a nice mid-tempo, high energy track, where he's joined by mixtape favorite Michael Meyers. 12-inch, Vinyl record

ScrewballWho Shot Rudy? (dirty, clean, inst)/ You Love To Hear The Stories (dirty, clean, inst) ... 12-inch
Screwball, 1999. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Another track about the assasination of the mayor of NYC. This one is a whole lot more specific – and to our ears, a lot funnier – than the earlier rhyme attacks on Rudy Guliani. From the intro using the 'If you see a devil smash him' sample to the line "like the Jews celebratin when Pharoah got killed..." Godfather Don produces "You Love To Hear The Stories" where Screwball deliver some nice rhymes looking back on the history of Queens MC's from Shan & Marley Marl up through Mobb Deep, etc. (One of the members of Screwball is MC Poet, who recorded "Beat You Down" as part of the whole BDP/Queensbridge battles back then...) 12-inch, Vinyl record

Burt BacharachTogether? – Original Soundtrack Recording ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1979. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A lost Burt Bacharach treasure – a bit later than classic vintage, but a wonderful album from the mature maestro – and sometimes overlooked, due to its status as a soundtrack! The work here is totally great – that mellow, easy-flowing style that Burt really perfected around the time of Living Together – served up here in a batch of sweet instrumental tracks, plus a few key vocal numbers with lyrics sung by Jackie DeShannon, Libby Titus, and Michael McDonald – all of whom slide down more into the Bacharach ethos than stand out as their usual selves – and we mean that in a good way! Titles include "I Don't Need You Any More", "In Tune", "If We Ever Get Out Of Here", "On The Beach", "I've Got My Mind Made Up", "Find Love", "Luisa", and "I Think I'm Gonna Fall In Love". CD

Elmer Bernstein/Shorty Rogers & His GiantsMan With The Golden Arm – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Decca, 1955. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of the greatest jazz soundtracks of all time! Elmer Bernstein wrote the score to Otto Preminger's chilling film version of Nelson Algren's book The Man With The Golden Arm – a sad tale of jazz, gambling, and heroin addiction on the streets of Chicago (not far from Dusty Groove, in fact!) – and in doing so, he came up with one of the first jazz soundtracks to really work strongly with a dramatic narrative. The film's striking theme is played in a number of variations, either with orchestral backing, or in small combo format by Shorty Rogers & His Giants, a crack west coast group that features work by Bud Shank, Shelly Manne, Bob Cooper, and Pete Candoli. The tracks work perfectly together as a suite of tracks, even without the images of the film – telling a tale of temptation, sadness, tragedy, and rebirth. Titles include "Clark Street", "Breakup", "The Fix", "Zosh", "Frankie Machine", and "Audition". Worth the price for the Saul Bass cover alone! LP, Vinyl record album
(80s MCA pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

New Jay McShannBig Apple Bash (Jazzlore) ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A much groovier record than you might expect – hardly the older-styled jazz session normally associated with Jay McShann, and more of a wide-ranging session that brings in some great contemporary touches! The album's something of a celebration for Jay – and it features wonderful guest work from players who include Gerry Mulligan on baritone and soprano sax, Herbie Mann on flute and tenor sax, John Scofield on guitar, Doc Cheatham on trumpet, and Eddie Gomez on bass. A few tunes have an older Kansas City sort of swing, but others have a vamping groove that's really great – and these numbers really stand out in the set with some great solo moments. Titles include "Crazy Legs & Friday Strut", "Blue Feeling", "Jumpin The Blues", "Dickie's Dream", and "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water". LP, Vinyl record album
(Atlantic Jazzlore pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

Hajime YoshizawaJapan ... CD
Village Again (Japan), 2008. New Copy ... $26.99
One of the greatest efforts so far from Hajime Yoshizawa – a set that has some heavy jazz influences, and almost hearkens back to his roots – yet one that's also awash in some of his best 21st Century soul styles as well! The album has a snapping acoustic energy that's right up there with other Japanese club jazz work in recent years – and features lots of tight piano work from Yoshizawa, played with a sense of imagination and energy that we haven't heard from him in years – a depth that's almost like McCoy Tyner at his best – supported by rhythms that take us back to some of Curtis Lundy's best work of years past. Navasha Daya turns in a few great vocal performances here – really sparkling away from Fertile Ground, and sounding more like a jazz singer than ever before – and other tracks feature guest work by Akiko and Shanti. Brilliant stuff all around – and with 13 tracks that include "Bristlecone Pine", "Time", "Aska", "Eastern Step", "Celebration", "Satellite Dancer", "Rain", "May", "Seeds Of Spring", and "The Color Of Peace".

New Gladys Knight & The PipsThat Special Time Of Year (original pressing) ... CD
Columbia/Sony, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
Although recorded a bit later than some of Gladys Knight's better-known Holiday work, this album's actually our favorite of the bunch – because it's got a looser, more soul-based feel that gets beyond some of the overdone modes of earlier Christmas work! Gladys is clearly trying to get more Christmas play on the radio with this one – and avoids the serious modes of earlier Holiday records by going for straightforward tunes that have a nicely modern soul approach to the arrangements. Backings are done by Gene Page, McKinley Jackson, and Larry Farrow – and a few tunes feature duets with Shanga or Johnny Mathis. Titles include "This Christmas", "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town", "Jingle Bells", "That Special Time Of Year", "When A Child Is Born", "I Believe", and "It's The Happiest Time Of Year". CD

New Harold MabernLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the best Harold Mabern albums we've heard in years – recorded with a trio of familiar partners, John Webber on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums – but in a freewheeling live setting that has the group really stretching out over some long, extended tracks! Mabern's sense of imagination in this setting is wonderful – and really takes us back to the soulful majesty we loved in his music during the 70s – and although a few numbers reflect the ballad mode of some of Harold's studio albums, even these have an open-ended creativity that really goes beyond the usual! Titles include "Dreaming", "Road Song", "Boogie For Al McShann", "Afro Blue", "Alone Together", and a surprisingly great take on "Sesame Street". CD

New MC LyteLyte As A Rock ... LP
First Priority/Atlantic, 1988. Used ... Out Of Stock
Lyte's first LP, and a hip hop classic that needs no introduction from us. Lyte raised the bar for female rappers on this late 80s album with her mic skills and lyrical finesse that took female MC's into a whole new realm, beyond "Roxanne" answer tracks. She takes on Roxanne Shante on "10% Dis", a classic battle track that sparked a great answer cycle in its own right. And the production, mostly by Audio Two is pure minimalist hip hop beatmaking, while the King Of Chill comes correct with the dopest side stick in the history of programmed beats on "Paper Thin", and Prince Paul goes nuts with the horn stabs on one of his earlier beats, "MC Lyte Likes Swingin'". 10 tracks in all, this LP also includes "I Cram To Understand You", "Kickin 4 Brooklyn", "Lyte As A Rock", "Lyte Thee MC", "I Am Woman", "Lyte Vs. Vanna Whyte" and "I Am Woman". LP, Vinyl record album

New Giorgio MoroderBest Of Electronic Disco – Deluxe Edition ... CD
Repertoire (Germany), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet early electro grooves from Giorgio Moroder – the German maestro who really helped transform the sound of the dancefloor in the 70s! The music here is heavy on beats and keyboards, but in a style that's quite different from club grooves in years to come – very much still in the warmer side of the disco spectrum, with a live energy that really keeps things compelling throughout! Moroder's been a key influence on house, techno, and other styles over the years – but there's still nothing like the greatness of the original grooves on this set! Titles include "Let The Music Play", "E=MC2", "From Here To Eternity (reprise)", "Utopia Me Giorgio", "First Hand Experience In Second Hand Love", "Too Hot To Handle", "I Wanna Rock You", "Solitary Man", "Knights In White Satin", "American Dream", and "Shannon's Eyes".
