DJ Eli & Shan Boogs (Cloudkickers)And So Kiddies...(dirty, clean, inst)/ Truly Gifted Ones(dirty, inst)/ Lay Puzzled ... 12-inch
Fondle 'Em, 1999. Near Mint- .... $6.99
"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

New Marley MarlMarley Marl Scratch (voc, dub) ... 12-inch
Nia, 1985. Used (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Guest MC's include Godfather Don, Tripple Seis, Capone-n-Noreaga, Prodigy, Havoc, Cormega, and even MC Shan! 19 tracks in all, including "Take ItThere", "That S***", "No Expectations", "Urban Warfare", "H-O-S-T-Y-L-E" and "Attention A&R Department" LP, Vinyl record album

Burt BacharachTogether? – Original Soundtrack Recording ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1979. New Copy .... $13.99
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

Harold MabernLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2013. New Copy Gatefold .... $11.99 14.99
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

MC LyteEyes On This ... LP
First Priority, 1989. Near Mint- .... $19.99
MC Lyte's second full length record – a bit overlooked in the grand scheme, if only because the preceding Lyte As A Rock was a tough act to follow – so now's a great time to catch up with it! To our ears, Eyes On This is every bit as nice as the debut, and it that last of Lyte's no nonsense late 80s east coast rap efforts – before she started inching more towards a commercial style in the early 90s. An underappreciated classic! Includes "Cappucino", "Stop, Look, Listen" featuring Audio Two, "Survival of the Fittest (rmx)", "I Am the Lyte", "Cha Cha Cha", "Not Wit' A Dealer" and another song dedicated to Shante, "Shut The Eff Up! (Hoe)". Also includes "Throwin Words At U", "Please Understand", "Rhyme Hangover", "Funky Song" and "Slave 2 The Rhythm". LP, Vinyl record album

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 .... $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".

ShaktiShakti With John McLaughlin ... CD
Columbia, 1976. Used .... $3.99
Great post-Mahavishnu work from guitarist John McLaughlin – the debut of his excellent Shakti combo, a group who mixed Indian music with some tighter fusion moments! The style here is a lot leaner than some of McLaughlin's previous experiments – a small group lineup with violin from L Shankar, plus tabla, percussion, ghantam, mridangam, and John's guitar – all used together in really wonderful ways. The Indian roots of the music are often quite strong, and McLaughlin plays a fair bit of acoustic guitar in a respectful way that never intrudes too much on the other players – a huge change from his jamming fusion of the early 70s. The album features 3 long tracks – "Joy", "Lotus Feet", and "What Need Have I For This". CD

New MC LyteLyte As A Rock ... LP
First Priority/Atlantic, 1988. Used .... Temporarily 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 VariousFly Girls – B-Boys Beware – Revenge Of The Super Female Rappers ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s. Used 2CDs .... Out Of Stock
A fantastic tribute to the Fly Girls of hip hop – a filler free collection of some of the funkiest female fronted singles of the 80s – included a few genesis cuts from the 70s and a couple of important 90s numbers – blueprint rap from JJ Fad, Sweet Tee, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Bahamadia, Sparky D, Dimples D, Roxanne Shante and more! The set is heavy with classic material from NYC, naturally – as that's where hip hop was born – Soul Jazz does a fine job of selecting important cuts from other scenes, stretching back to the 70s for influential tracks by Camille Yarborough and Sarah Webster Fabio, and into the 90s for modern classics by Bahamadia and Missy Elliot. No label is more reverent to the classics they round up for killer compilations than Soul Jazz – and this is a great one – with rare photos and notes on each track. CD 1 includes "You're Goin Down" by JJ Fad, "Pump Up The Funk" by Princess MC, "Vicious Rap" by Tanya Winley, "I Got Da Feelin" by Sweet Tee, "Ego Trippin" by Nicki Giovanni, "Cha Cha Cha" by MC Lyte, "Paper Thin" by Bahamadia and more. CD 2 includes "I Can't Stop" by Sparky D, "Ladies First" by Queen Latifah, "To The Beat Y'all" by Lady B, "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly) by Missy Elliot, "Sucker DJs" by Dimples D, "Give It A Rest" by She Rockers, "Glimpses" by Sarah Webster Fabio, "Bite This" by Roxanne Shante and more. 20 tracks on 2CDs.

New DVDBig Fun In The Big Town (DVD) ... DVD
Five Day Weekend/Traffic, 1986/2012. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A landmark look at the rise of hip hop in the New York scene – filmed in the mid 80s, and featuring loads of vintage footage from the streets! The images here are alone worth the price of admission – but there's also plenty of compelling meat to the feature too – including vintage interviews with Grand Master Flash, Run DMC, Schoolly D, Mr Magic, Biz Markie, Doug E Fresh, Roxanne Shante, and CBS Crew – all done in voices that are as fresh as the music they were making at the time! The film is like finding a time machine back to the old school – and although the feature is only about 45 minutes, it packs plenty of punch. DVD
