New Don CherryRelativity Suite ... LP
JCOA/Klimt (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of Don Cherry's most spiritual, far-reaching projects – a wonderful record that builds both on his key avant work of the 60s, and some of the globally-inspired sounds he was cutting overseas! This date was done in close collaboration with the New York underground of the time – and the large group features work from a rich array of great musicians – including Charles Brackeen on soprano and alto sax, Carlos Ward on alto, Frank Lowe and Dewey Redman on tenors, Charlie Haden on bass, Carla Bley on piano, and Ed Blackwell on drums – working with additional string and percussion players in a sound that's completely sublime! There's a great ear here for unusual sonic twists and turns, yet these are mixed with some deeper organic tones, and some freer jazz passages – all to really ignite a great fire as the set rolls on. Titles include "March Of The Hobbits", "Tantra", "Desireless", "Infinite Gentleness", and "Trans-Love Airways". LP, Vinyl record album

New BeatnutsStone Crazy ... LP
Relativity, 1997. Near Mint- ... $5.99
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

Relativity, 1994. Very Good+ ... $13.99
The first full-length Beatnuts album – pressed on 2LP for the first time ever! Street Level is designed to succeed on, well, street level – but it's actually pretty damn diverse in retrospect! One of those more-is-more 90s albums with lots of tracks and some stellar production. Includes "Props Over Here", "Psycho Dwarf", "Hellraiser", "Ya Don't Stop", "Are You Ready" featuring Grand Puba, "Hit Me With That", "2-3 Break", and 10 more. LP, Vinyl record album

New CommonResurrection ... CD
Relativity, 1994. Used ... $7.99
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 impossible 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. CD

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

No IDAccept Your Own & Be Yourself (The Black Album) ... LP
Relativity, 1997. Very Good+ ... $16.99
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.

13 tracks (plus 5 interludes) produced by DJ Honda with vocals by Mos Def, De La Soul, KRS, Beatnuts, Al Tarik, Black Attack, Problems, No ID, Syndicate with tighter production than his first US album. The best cut here is "Travellin Man" by Mos Def. It has a sprawling, orchestrated track with Mos Def singing the chorus of Jerry Butlers melancholy "Memories Don't Leave Like People Do" – worth the price of the CD all by itself. CD

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

New Carl Allen & Rodney WhitakerWork To Do ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2009. Used ... $8.99
Great work from the rock-solid rhythm section of drummer Carl Allen and bassist Rodney Whitaker – two players who set up a wonderful groove for the set, then open the door for a host of wonderful guests! Most instrumentation is acoustic – save for a bit of guitar and Hammond at points – and there's a shifting lineup on the set that includes Vincent Herring on alto sax, Kirk Whalum on tenor, Vincent Chandler on trombone, Rodney Jones on guitar, George Colligan on piano and Fender Rhodes, and Dorsey Robinson on Hammond. Many tunes have a glowingly soulful sort of style – a groove that reminds us a lot of Muse Records right at the end of the 80s – unabashedly straightforward, and often with a nice nod to soul. Titles include "What's Going On", "Work To Do", "Grahamstown", "Relativity", "A Time For Love", "For Garrison", and "Speak To My Heart". CD

CommonBE ... CD
GOOD/Geffen, 2005. Used ... $4.99
"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 Andrew HillLive At Montreux ... LP
Arista/Freedom, 1975. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Solo piano work from Andrew Hill – very different than his Blue Note recordings, but also a return to the avant garde after his more mainstream last session for Blue Note. The record features 4 long tracks – three originals, and a version of Ellington's "Come Sunday" – and they're all snakey and introspective, with an intimate approach to the keys that reminds us of solo Monk of the 60s! Other titles include "Relativity", "Nevertisis", and "Snake Hip Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album

New Don CherryOrganic Music Society ... LP
Caprice (Sweden), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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
