A tight full length debut from Baby Blak! You may remember Blak from his appearance on Jazzy Jeff's Magnificent LP last year, where he added a surprising lyrical depth to that project. He extends that vibe masterfully throughout his own debut, which also benefits mightily from DJ Revolution's firm hip hop production. It's the kind of LP we wish Nas was still making; lots of real world street stories without glamorizing or polishing over anything, and a no nonsense production style. Revolution handled the bulk of the booth work, but there's some great guest turns on the knobs by Soul Supreme, Joey Chavez, Kev Brown and others. Blak brings in some seriously skilled guest MCs, too, including Planet Asia, the soon to HUGE Obie Trice, Mr. Lish, Lady Alma and others. The whole thing's as tight as can be, and ranks as highly in quality as the other successful albums on the young, hungry Rapster label – which is already well known for signing artists like Jazzy Jeff, Freddie Foxx, King Britt and others and giving them the creative control they need to work well! Tracks include "Once You Go Blak", "Wake Up", "Tables Turn", "Crazy", "The Youth", "Starvin' Artist", "Peace", "No Coast All Stars", "Daddy Dearest", "Diamonds" and more.

El Nutto
Limelight, Mid 60s. Very Good- Gatefold
A great little album by Terry Gibbs – one that's free from the gimmicks that could sometimes mar his other efforts, and which really lets the vibist get a chance to open up in a session of straight ahead tunes with a surprising degree of soul! The group on the set's a quartet – with ... LP, Vinyl record album
