New TramaTrama (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Cat/Clinck (Japan), 1977. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest albums on the legendary TK Records label – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of the imprint back in the 70s! This sole album by Trama is a stone cooker all the way through – done up in a heavy ensemble funk mode of the time, with some extra sharp bits around the edges – and a slight spiritual undercurrent too – almost a Soul Cal vibe at times! The guitars snake nicely around the keyboards, and Donna Allen's lead vocals really sparkle on some of the best numbers – widening the soulful appeal of the grooves, while the rest of the group still do their thing on instrumentation and backup vocals. Production is by Sax Kari, who's clearly going for a club vibe, but leaves nice rough bits around the edges – which gives the record a less polished feel than other TK disco records, and much more of an indie 12" sort of groove! Titles include "Gimme Some Lovin", "Captain Of The Ship", "If I Ever Do Wrong", "Come With Me", "Straight Groove", and "It's Amazing". CD

New OttoMTV Apresenta Otto ... CD
Trama (Brazil), 2005. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A live show from Otto – one of our favorite Brazilian talents from recent years, and an artist with a sound so fresh, even MTV can't mess it up! The DVD presents Otto's live appearance on the Brazilian version of the network – a pretty edgey batch of tracks that's hardly what you'd expect from the American arm of MTV – with really compelling, complicated rhythms underneath Otto's great vocals – all in a mode that's right up there with the genius we've come to expect from his studio albums. Titles include the now-classic "Bob", plus "Cuba", "Renault/Peugeot", "Low", "Pra Quem Ta Quente", "Anjos Do Asfalto", "Tento Entender", "Dias De Janeiro", "Por Que", and "Retratista". CD

New Ultramagnetic MCsFour Horsemen ... CD
Wild Pitch, 1993. Used .... $9.99
The last of the classic from the initial years of the Ultramagnetic MCs. The lyrics are still in the abstract style the Ultramags are famous for, but this time they're a little less manic – despite Kool Keith dropping his trademark madness. Ced Gee's production is still up to par to say the least – this one still sounds great! Tracks include "Two Brothers With Checks (San Francisco, Harvey)", "One, Two, One Two", "We Are The Horsemen", "Saga Of Dandy, The Devil & Day" (about Negro League baseball), "Adventures of Herman's Lust", and "Delta Force II." 14 tracks in all. CD

VariousDisco Giants – 20 Full Length Disco Classics Of The 80s ... CD
Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD .... $16.99
Way more than you'd expect from the title and cover – not a batch of familiar disco hits, but a treasure trove of club classics from the early 80s! Sure, some of the artists here are familiar – but most of them are from the indie side of the spectrum, and even the few big stars are represented by either non-hit tracks, or hard to find remixes that make this collection well worth seeking out! And given the early 80s focus of the track selection, there's less disco here than 80s groove and boogie-styled rhythms – heavy on the beats and keyboards, and still filled with plenty of great vocals. 20 tracks on 2CDs – with titles that include "Dreamer (long vocal)" by BB&Q Band, "Nights Of Pleasure (Nick Martinelli mix)" by Loose Ends, "You Can't Run From My Love" by Stephanie Mills, "I'm Out To Catch" by Leon Haywood, "Just Another Lover (12" mix)" by Johnny Kemp, "Fall Down" by Tramaine, "I Feel For You (12" mix)" by Chaka Khan, "Got To Be Real" by Selection, "Garden Of Eve (long)" by Yvonne Gage, "The Rhythm Of The Jungle" by The Quick, "Burnin Love" by Con Funk Shun, "I Need You" by Network, "Love Take Over" by Five Star, and "To Be With You" by Maxx Traxx.

New Ultramagnetic MCsAin't It Good To You (Unreleased Paul C Mix, Edit) (limited edition) ... 7-inch
Black Pegasus, Late 80s. New Copy (pic cover).... Just Sold Out!
Uber-rare alternate mix of an Ultramags classic – from the late 80s Critical Beatdown sessions! The original "Ain't It Good To You" is late 80s group rap of the finest caliber – and one of the standouts from the classic Critical Beatdown. The version on this limited edition 7" is an unreleased Paul C mix – purportedly from the original CB reel-to-reel – and also purportedly one of the last tracks Paul engineered before he left this world at the end of decade. Like the album version, it's working with the breakbeat classic Manzel "Jump Street" sample, but speeds up the beat a bit, for a slightly more frentic vibe, but it's still rooted in the funky soul source material. Includes the instrumental edit on the flip. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited edition.)

Rawkus, 1999. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two tracks from Common Sense. "Like They Used To Say" is produced by Dug Infinite, with a sample of the JB's "Pass the Peas" for the chorus, and Maseo of De La cutting in samples from over a dozen hip hop classics – from Ultramagnetic to EZ & Troup to MC Lyte to T-La Rock. "1.9.9.9." uses more mellow production by Hi-Tek, with vocals from Sadat X. CD

New Hank MobleyHank Mobley & His All Stars ... CD
Blue Note, 1957. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very unique album from Hank Mobley – one that has him working alongside Milt Jackson, in an unusual format that mixes the soulful Mobley tenor with some well-crafted work on vibes! The "all star" title is certainly appropriate here – as Mobley and Jackson are joined in a quintet by Horace Silver on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – almost bringing in an early Jazz Messengers sensibility to the record, but also hitting more of a looser, laidback blowing session approach. There's less of the tightness of other Mobley sessions from the time, and the record has the players really feeling each other out in the studio – with the sort of spontaneity you might hear in a Prestige or Savoy album from the time. Tracks are long, and titles include "Ultramarine", "Don't Walk", "Lower Stratosphere", and "Mobley's Musings". CD

Two tracks off the "Four Horsemen", plus remixes. "The Saga of Dandy, The Devil & Day" is Ultramagnetics ode to the stars of Negro League Baseball. On "Raise It Up" Kool Keith and Ced Gee return to the abstract vocal style of "Critical Beatdown", with nice uptempo production and guest vocals from Godfather Don. 12-inch, Vinyl record
