VariousRelativity Urban Assault ... LP
Relativity, 1996. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The cut here is Common's "The Bitch In Yoo" (original, unedited version, complete with the soundtrack intro), his famous dis of Ice Cube and the Westcoast Connection, produced by Pete Rock, released only on promo 12" single and this promo-only sampler. By the time the LP came out, Common had supposedly settled his beef with Ice Cube, so the track doesn't appear on any Common LP. Beyond that, it's actually a pretty dope comp, with a few tracks that were harder to get at the time, including MOP "World Famous", Fat Joe "Firewater", DJ Honda "Out For The Cash" (w/ Al Tariq, Beatnuts, Fat Joe, Problems), No ID "Real Weight", PMD "Rugged-N-Raw", Beatnuts "Find That". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

BeatnutsIntoxicated Demons - The EP ... LP

The Beatnuts continue the gimme-the-cash theme (see "Find That Sh*t", "Do You Believe In God") on the third single from the Stone Crazy LP, but this time it's the hiding assets from the IRS trick. Nice guest vocals from Big Punisher and Cuban Links. 12-inch, Vinyl record

New BeatnutsStone Crazy ... LP
Relativity, 1997. Very Good- ... $2.99
Except for their crossover attempt, "Give Me Tha A**", Juju and Les (minus Al Tariq) use loads of David Axelrod samples to create more of the classic Beatnuts sound. "Thinkin' Bout Cash" features Hostile and Poet of Screwball (yep, it's the same MC Poet from "Beat You Down" fame). Also guest appearances by Big Punisher and Cuban Links. LP, Vinyl record album

"The Bitch In Yoo" is Common's famous dis of Ice Cube, released only on this promo 12" single.

Common SenseResurrection ... LP
Relativity, 1994. Very Good 2LP (reissue)... $14.99
In 1994 when everyone seemed to be turning hardcore, Common Sense wasn't having it. Introspective tales of growing up and living on the South Side that fit perfectly with No I.D.'s mellow production and spiced up with two guest appearances by Y-Not aka Twilight Tone. Classic LP, solid all the way through. Being in Chicago, people always ask us for this one, but the original is tough to find, even here. Now back in print with original cover art. With "I Used To Love H.E.R.". "Book Of Life", "Chapter 13 (Rich Man vs. Poor Man)", "Nuthin' To Do", "In My Own World (Check The Method)", "Maintaining", "Communism", "Watermelon" and seven more. LP, Vinyl record album

Relativity, 1996. Near Mint- ... $5.99
We always thought this was the more dope of the two Honda LPs. Unfortunately this clean promo version doesn't have all the tracks, instead just eight of them: "What You Expected" with Guru & Premier, "Dat's My Word" with Redman, "Strtaight Talk From NY" with Puba, Sadat X and Wakeem, "Biz Freestyle" with the Biz Mark, a short interlude with Common, "F*k Dat" with Sean Black, "International Anthem" with the Liks and "The End" with Al Tariq.

Quality production all the way through by The Beatnuts, Diamond D, Showbiz and Lord Finesse, with scratches by Rob Swift and Rock Raider. Features guest appearances by Grand Puba (that to our ears anyway, sound better than his solo stuff from that time), Diamond D, Kool G Rap, Apache, and King Sun. With the hits "The S**t Is Real", "Watch The Sound", "I'm A Hit That", "Flow Joe", "You Must Be Out of Your F***in' Mind" and eight more. LP, Vinyl record album

New CommonCan I Borrow A Dollar? ... LP
Relativity, 1992. Very Good (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Common's full length debut! This one's a little more uptempo and overall less serious than "Resurrection", and a few cuts that are as good as anything on that LP – Common went on to a pretty diverse career, and this is the blueprint material for his most respected records. Production by Twilight Tone, Immenslope, and the Beatnuts. Includes "Penny For My Thoughts", "Soul by the Pound", "Take It Eazy", "Breaker 1/9", "Two Scoops of Raisins", "Tricks Up My Sleeve", Blows To The Temple" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

New Tear Da Club Up ThugsPush 'Em Off (clean, album, inst w/hooks, acapella)/Hell Naw ... 12-inch
Hypnotize Minds/Relativity, 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two rowdy, rowdy cuts from this Three 6 Mafia off-shoot with DJ Paul, Juicy J, and Lord Infamous. Their name is derived from an earlier 3-6 hit "Tear Da Club Up", and that's pretty much what they're all about. "Push 'Em Off" is a violent, up-tempo riot starter that follows the classic Memphis formula for getting buck. "Hell Naw" is some crazy misogynistic raps that'll make you blush over a screwed-up Bambataa beat. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a Relativity sleeve.)

No I.D. produced most of this, and a few tracks were done by Doug Infinite. Includes "1 '2 Many", "Reminding Me Of Sef", "My City", "Real Nigga Quotes" and ""Retrospect For Life".

New No IDAccept Your Own & Be Yourself (The Black Album) ... LP
Relativity, 1997. Used ... Out Of Stock
Debut LP from Chicago's own No ID, who produced the first two Common Sense LP's, which was largely slept on, in spite of the nice rhymes and tight beats. With guest vocals by Doug Infinite, Common and Chicago's premier vocal duo - Syndicate. 15 tracks if you count the interludes, including "State to State", "Sky's the Limit","Original Man". "We Rock Like So", "Pray For The Sinners", "Two Steps Behind", "Jump On It" and more. In our eyes, a certified underground classic, and an essential piece of the Chicago hip hop puzzle. LP, Vinyl record album

New Don CherryOrganic Music Society ... LP
Caprice (Sweden), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
Early 70s greatness from Don Cherry – a double album's worth of profoundly spiritual soundscapes paired with lots of weird effects – and a very laidback groove overall! Tracks are written by Cherry, Terry Riley, Pharoah Sanders, and Nana Vasconcelos – and include performances by Don on trumpet, voice, and harmonium. Lots of cool percussion elements by the group, with some tabla and other Indian instrumentation. Titles include "Elixir", "Relativity Suite (Parts 1 & 2)", "Terry's Tune", "Hope", "The Creator Has a Master Plan", and "Resa". In a cool, trippy gatefold, too! LP, Vinyl record album

New CommonBE ... CD
GOOD/Geffen, 2005. Used ... $2.99
"I rap with the Passion of Christ, Ni**a, cross me!" BE isn't exactly a back-to-basics LP in the vein of his classic work for Relativity – but it is indeed a return to a focused, genuinely soulful, no BS approach – and it's a very welcome one at that! It seems like Com was a bit affected by some of the criticism folks had for the spacious, astral Electric Circus LP – if you ask us Common had no reason to apologize, but we'd be lyin' if we said we weren't hoping for another batch of tracks that sound like they could have been written on a front porch on the southside of Chicago. This is indeed that record – 12 tracks, few guest appearances, and a warm, consistent sound all the way through. There's a 3 track span on this album, from "Chi-City" through "Real People", that's seriously close to perfection. Welcome home, Common! Ruggedly produced by Kanye West, with a couple of stellar production contributions from Jay Dee! Other tracks include "The Corner" feat Last Poets, "Go!", "Faithful", "Testify", "Love Is. . .", "The Food (live)" (this great track has been circulating for a while since it was performed on Chappelle's Show, and we're thrilled Common and Kanye had the good sense to include it on the album), "They Say" featuring John Legend and "It's Your World (Part 1 &2)".

New Sam SamudioHard & Heavy ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
In case you don't recognize him from his beard on the cover, Sam Samudio is Sam The Sham – of Sam The Sham & The Pharoahs fame – stepping out here in a badass mix of rock and soul, all served up in a heady brew that's more early 70s Capricorn than straight Atlantic Records! The album was recorded at Criteria Studios with the Dixie Flyers, The Memphis Horns, and The Sweet Inspirations backing Sam up – but the overall sound is much more of a rootsy rock one than the soul you might expect from the setting. But that's actually ok with us, given the soul in Sam's earlier work – as coming out with a rocking mode is actually much more of a departure in some ways. Tracks include "Goin Upstairs", "Sweet Release", "Lonely Avenue", "Let's Burn Down The Cornfield", "Homework", and "Relativity". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a promo sticker.)
