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

✨✧ DJ CamMad Blunted Jazz ... CD
Shadow, 1996. Used 2CD ... $12.99
Heavy beats and funky grooves from DJ Cam – recorded back in his more formative years, when his sound was rougher, and more "in the crates"! The album's got a great mix of open-ended samples and jazzy instrumentation – sounding almost like early Greyboy work, but without as much of the jazz solos. Disc 1 features the album Underground Vibes – an instant classic that's been out of print for years – and disc 2 features a live set from 1995. Titles include "Return Of The Jedi", "Sang Lien", "Underground Vibes", "Gangsta Sh*t", "Suckers Never Play That", "Meera", "Lost Kingdom", and "London 1995". (New Grooves, Hip Hop) CD

El Michels AffairReturn To The 37th Chamber ... CD
Big Crown, 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
El Michels return again to the Wu-Tang chambers – and the results this time might even be better than before! Wu-Tang forged their initial sound out of a love of offbeat samples and unusual funk – so it's only fitting that one of the hippest funk groups around strip the music right down to its roots – performing new live interpretations with their wickedly sinister groove – all at a level that makes the whole thing a slow funk masterpiece from start to finish! El Michels has always been one of the few real standouts in the deep funk scene – and it's records like this that keep us loving them so much. And even though the set features vocals from Lee Fields on two tracks, and Lady Wray on one more – the instrumental groove is what dominates and draws our ears, on tracks that include "Tears", "Sipped Up", "Shadow Boxing", "Iron Man", "4th Chamber", "Shaolin Brew", "Drums For Sale", "Verbal Intercourse", "Tearz", and "Wu Tang Clan Ain't Nuthin Ta F Wit". (Deep Funk, Hip Hop) CD
Also available Return To The 37th Chamber (with bonus download) ... LP 19.99

Sir Mix-A-LotMack Daddy ... CD
Def American/Rhym Cartel, 1992. Used ... $3.99
A fine slice of funky hip hop from the early 90s by Sir Mix-A-Lot – gaining him pop culture ubiquity that's STILL prevalent decades later, thanks to "Baby's Got Back" – a booty so big that it casts a shadow over Sir Mix-A-Lot's legacy as a pacific northwest hip hop trailblazer! There's some solid stuff here, and deserves geniune respect for the best of it. It adds up to something a lot better than just a novelty hit. tIncludes "One Time's Got No Case", "Mack Daddy", "Baby Got Back", "No Holds Barred", "I'm Your New God" and a "A Rapper's Reputation" CD
(BMG music club pressing.)

✨✧ Frozen ExplosionFrozen Explosion ... CD
B-Boy, 1988. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the rarest records ever on B-Boy Records – Frozen Explosion, straight outta Belleview, Illinois – one of the few records on the pioneering Bronx rap label by a non NYC area crew! Frozen Explosion has been getting collector's attention for years thanks in part to a bit of the track "Mac Nife" getting spun by DJ Shadow a time or 2 and for the fact that this must be one of the hardest to find B-Boy Records ever pressed. With: "Rapman", "Cold Kickin'", "Smashing", "Babs", 'Direct Contact", "Iwo Jima", "Rapaholics", "Mac Nife", "Beaver Jam" and "Cold Dub". First time ever on CD! CD

Ghostface Killah & Adrian YoungeTwelve Reasons To Die (deluxe 2CD edition – with instrumentals) ... CD
Soul Temple, 2013. New Copy 2CD ... $5.99
Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge team up for this intriguing collaboration – one with a promising concept and they deliver on it in full – shadowboxing their way to a knockout! On the mic tip, Ghostface is in his comfort zone here – spitting lyrics laced with martial arts, mafia and supernatural imagery – and doing so with a furious flow and peak precision. Adrian Younge and his Venice Dawn group lay down the sounds – with dusty soul and funk, naturally – but what really pushes this one to a superior level are the unpredictable and ingenious nods to 70s Italian film scores, particularly in the giallo genre. Spooky, echoey keyboards and occasional angelic female backing vocals elevate the vibe and balance the grit. 12 tracks and no filler: "Beware The Stare", "Rise Of The Black Suits", "I Declare War" with Masta Killa, "Blood On The Cobblestones" with U-God & Inspectah Deck, "Rise Of The Ghostface Killah", "Murder Spree" with U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck and Killa Sin, "Enemies Around Me" with William Hart of the Delfonics, "The Sure Shot (Parts 1 And 2)", "Twelve Reasons To Die" and more. 2CD deluxe edition includes the full instrumentals on disc 2!
