Ice T, MC Shan, Big Daddy Kane, & OthersColors – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Warner, 1988. Used ... $2.99
Hard to believe how important this soundtrack was, back in the day. One of the first good hip hop soundtracks, and a motherlode of great cuts like "Paid In Full (7 minute Cold Cut remix)" by Eric B & Rakim, "Butcher Shop" by Kool G Rap, "Colors" by Ice T, "Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste" by M.C. Shan, and "Go On Girl" by Roxanne Shante. More by Salt N Pepa, Big Daddy Kane, 7A3, and Rick James. Marley Marl produced the motherlode of these cuts, and this was the early days of the Cold Chillin/Warner alliance. CD

MC ShanBeat Biter (radio, extended)/The Bridge/Dub Biter ... 12-inch
Bridge, 1986. Good+ ... $29.99
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 you thought the LL/Canibus/Wyclef battle went on too long! Plus, there's the a-side, "Beat Biter" MC Shan's classic cut where he accuses LL Cool J of stealing his beat for "Rock The Bells". He calls out LL at the top of the cut, but even if it wasn't clear who he's talking about, Marley Marl cuts in a sample of Foghorn Leghorn saying "I think we know who that somebody is..." The beats are, of course, similar to LL's "Rock The Bells", the verses are some of the best mid-80's battle rhymes, and the extended version has some nice scratching by Marly Marl. All that trivia aside, the record is up there as one of our favorites from the class of '85. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Original pressing, with a light blue label and black print, and 215 area code.)

Marley MarlMarley Marl Scratch (voc, dub) ... 12-inch
Nia, 1985. Very Good- ... $14.99
Marley's classic debut single, with MC Shan, erroneously credited as DJ Shan. With a big beat drum machine style he'd later abandon for his funky sample based approach, some nice early scratching, and a sound that's waaaaay back to the old school – just a drum machine, Shan on the mic and Marley on the 1's and 2's, the roots of the QB sound! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo, with the AMP etching and Sound Makers stamp in run-out groove. Label has some marker.)

New Marley MarlIn Control Vol 1 ... LP
Cold Chillin/Warner, 1988. Used ... Out Of Stock
The classic first long player from Marley Marl! Marley Marl's infective, standard bearing studio genius graces all the tracks on this LP – with performances by Craig G, Roxanne Shante, MC Shan, Master Ace, Big Daddy Kane, and Biz Markie. The set collected singles Marley produced for the above mentioned Cold Chillin' stablemates of the period, and it represents the coming of the sampler revolution that was soon to take over hip hop. An uncontested classic, and a triumph of hip hop production wizardry! Features "The Symphony", plus "Droppin Science", "Simon Says", "The Rebel", and "Wack It" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a promo stamp & some light wear.)

New DJ Eli & Shan Boogs (Cloudkickers)And So Kiddies...(dirty, clean, inst)/ Truly Gifted Ones(dirty, inst)/ Lay Puzzled ... 12-inch
Fondle 'Em, 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
"Truly Gifted Ones" features Yeshua Dapo Ed, J. Treds, and Pumpkinhead with more lively, uptempo production and rhymes than we normally expect from Fondle 'Em using a little bit of the old school, multi-part rhyming style that's been making a comeback lately. "Lay Puzzled" is a mostly instrumental midtempo track that definitely takes us back with the tinkling piano sample that MC Shan used on "Left Me Lonely!" On "And So Kiddies" Shan Boogs and Cage do a dis/parody of Eminiem, though we're not sure what the actual beef is. And as an added bonus you get two untitled instrumental jazz snippets. 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

One of the funnier Roxanne replies. This time it's Roxanne's parents doing the MC'ing. It bites from Shante's "Roxanne's Revenge", but still a must for Roxanne completists. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Giorgio MoroderBest Of Electronic Disco – Deluxe Edition ... CD
Repertoire (Germany), 1970s. New Copy ... $16.99
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".

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".

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".

Harold MabernLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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
