Joey D Vieira/David CriggerDrum Drops Vol 1 ... LP
Drum Drops, 1978. Very Good ... $11.99
A great little record – all drumbreaks all the way through! The record is a set of drum-only tracks performed by David Crigger, with the intention of making spare, straight drum tracks available for those that need them. Unlike other records of the type, these tracks are acoustic drums – not electric – and they're also all pretty long, with most numbers over 2 minutes in length. Joey D Vieira does a pretty nice spoken introduction to the record, and then Crigger takes over on drum tracks called "Funk Rock", "Straight Rock", "Rock Ballad", "Latin Rock", "Slow Disco", and "Fast Disco". Some of the genres aren't as good as others, but there are some nice bits on here! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a sticker spot & light wear.)

De La SoulAnd The Anonymous Nobody (with download) ... LP
AOI, 2016. New Copy 2LP ... $28.99
A major later career creative win for De La Soul – a mind-bogglingly diverse, frequently brilliant record that manages to rival their best early work in stylistic breadth! This one's an epic – a 17 track, nearly 70 minute opus that finds De La working with an eclectic group of collaborators on a project that finds them hinting at past glories – be it the laidback jazzy production of the immediate post-"D.A.I.S.Y Age" to their impressive, genre-defying collaborations with the Gorillaz and others – but it's very much a fresh effort with nary a whiff of nostalgia. It's a grower, too – a record you'll need to listen to a bunch of times to really get to the heart of it – and in a post-millennium age of instant gratification, you REALLY gotta hand it to Pos, Dave and Mase for defiantly making a true blue L(ong)P(layer) Titles include "Genesis" with Jill Scott, "Royalty Capes", "Nosed Up", "Pain" with Snoop Dogg, "Memory Of...(US)" with Estelle & Pete Rock, "Snoopies" with David Byrne, "Greyhounds" with Usher, "Drawn" with Little Dragon, "Whoodeeni" with 2Chainz, "Here In After" with Damon Albarn and more.

✨✧ DJ ShadowEndtroducing ... LP
Mo Wax/FFRR, 1996. Near Mint- 2LP ... $29.99
It seems like when this came out, critics, promoters, and even DJs liked to drop the term "Trip Hop" whenever possible, and this album was held up as the watershed mark. A few years down the line and it still holds up, but as an instrumental hip hop LP, as much as a rock album (Shadow's gone on to show his true colors with subsequent efforts) or anything else. Cinematic and epic in scope, this LP as much as anything else helped resurrect the career of David Axelrod, though some of us were hip to him all along, but Josh Davis is clearly a fellow traveller in the coloristic approach he uses, that never forgets the funk. Includes "Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt", "The Number Song", "Changeling", "What Does Your Soul Look Like (pts 1 & 4)" and "Midnight In A Perfect World". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later pressing on Mo Wax/A&M, including the printed inner sleeves.)

DJ ShadowEndtroducing (3CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Island, 1996. New Copy 3 CDs ... $39.99 49.98
Massive 20th Anniversary edition of DJ Shadow's masterpiece! It seems like when this came out, critics and even DJs liked to drop the then new moniker "trip hop" whenever possible, and this pivotal album is held up as the watershed mark. A number of years down the line, Endtroducing holds up stands the test of time as an instrumental hip hop LP, and even sort of an avant rock album – giving it a timeless feel that obliterates any trendy pigeonholes! Cinematic and epic in scope, this LP as much as anything else helped resurrect the career of David Axelrod (though some of us were hip to him all along) and Josh Davis is clearly a fellow traveler in the coloristic approach he uses – and never forgets the funk! This great 3CD edition includes the classic original album on Disc One – with "Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt", "The Number Song", "Changeling", "What Does Your Soul Look Like (pts 1 & 4)" and "Midnight In A Perfect World" – the bonus album Excessive Ephemera on Disc Two – and the all new (circa 2016) remix album Endtroducing Re-Emagined on Disc Three – with remixes by Adrian Younge, Lee Bannon,. Hudson Mohawke, Daedelus and others! CD

RakimSeventh Seal ... LP
SMC, 2009. Sealed 2LP ... $19.99
Here it is after an arduous, nearly decade long wait – Rakim's epically long in the making Seventh Seal – released on his own label after the much discussed departure from Dr Dre! Rakim's authority and gravity on the mic is still second to none, and Seventh Seal's best tracks stark and timelessly modeled backdrops for his Rakim's spiritually minded, tough wordplay. Producers include Jake One, Nottz, Slyce & others. Titles include "How To Emcee", "Walk These Streets", "Documentary Of A Gangsta", "Man Above", "Won't Be Long", the David Axelrod-interpolated "Holy Are U", "Message In The Song", "Put It All To Music", "Psychic Love", "Still In Love" and "Dedicated".

✨✧ BeatnutsStone Crazy ... CD
Relativity, 1997. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. CD
