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 ShadowMountain Will Fall ... CD
Mass Appeal, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
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.

✨✧ VariousDiminishing Treasures ... CD
Rum Drunk, 1980s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A prime set of rare, unedited, remastered hip hop obscurities from the 80s – and a great batch of some of the source material for DJ Shadow's vaunted Diminishing Returns set! It's a great listen all the way through, with numbers that touch on 80s electro soul, DJ party rockers, and old school hip hop groove – most of it from much deeper reservoirs than those drained for run of the mill hip hop comps! Tracks include "What Are We Gonna Do" by Ultimate 3 MC's, "Non-Stop" by Sweet Trio, "Kato-B" by Shawn Brown, "Lady L Neets Enanon" by Emanon, "You Can't Win" by The Brothers, "School's Out" by Almighty El-Cee", "Style Wars" by Hijack, "Price Is Right" by MC Price And DJ Trouble and more!

✨✧ Genius/GZALiquid Swords ... CD
Geffen, 1995. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A Shaolin hip hop essential! Heavy numerological rhymes, and the best production on any Wu project (still to this day, even). One of our absolute favorite albums in the classic Wu pantheon, and indisputably one of the very best – one of the very few that plays with hard solidity from start to finish. The way GZA's lowkey, unfazable flow delivers this sharp, gritty storytelling over prime RZA production – seriously, it is real Genius! Includes "Labels", "Cold World", "Shadowboxin", "Liquid Swords", "Living In The World Today", "Killah Hills 10304", "Investigative Reports", "Gold", "Duel Of The Iron Mic", "4th Chamber", "Hell's Wind Staff", "Unexplained", "Swordsman" and "I Gotcha Back". CD
Also available Liquid Swords (with bonus poster) ... LP 19.99
