DJ ShadowEndtroducing ... CD
Mo Wax, 1996. Used ... Just Sold Out!
It seems like when this came out, critics, 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". CD
Also available Endtroducing (3CD deluxe edition) ... CD 39.99

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,.

✨✧ DJ ShadowMountain Will Fall ... CD
Mass Appeal, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
DJ Shadow at his most stylistically sprawling –doing his thing as distinctively as ever, unpredictable from one track to the next, but very much himself whether it's a sample and scratches cut reminiscent of the Entroducing era or beats-enriched avant jazz or keyboards-heavy tracks! Lots of different moods at play here, whether it's topical rap with Mass Appeal label mates Run The Jewels, or atmospheric hip hop jazz with Dusty Groove favorite Mathew Halsall. You gotta hand it to Shadow for following his muse, regardless of expectations! Titles include "The Mountain Will Fall", the barbed, timely "Nobody Speak" with Run The Jewels, the modern mood jazz standout "Ashes To Oceans" with Matthew Halsall, "California", "Ghost Town", "Three Ralphs", "Depth Change", "Mambo", "Suicide Pact", 'The Sideshow" with Ernie Fresh and more.

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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!
