Tom Tom ClubTom Tom Club ... LP
Sire, 1981. Near Mint- ... $19.99
The first album by The Tom Tom Club – a group that started out as a side project by Talking Heads members Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz – but which went onto have a surprising life of its own! Like the Talking Heads at the start of the 80s, Tom Tom Club were very open to pulling together rhythms from the soulful underground – bits of Caribbean influence and certainly some sounds from hip hop too – but used in these cool sing-songy tunes that also had ties to the same New York underground scene that gave the world ESG and Liquid Liquid! Yet there's also a nicely complex set of textures, too – thanks to work on the record by Adrian Belew and Steve Stanley – both of whom can balance out funky elements and more interesting textures. The record took off immediately with the track "Genius Of Love" – inspired by hip hop, and respected by that scene too – as was the album's classic "Wordy Rappinghood". The whole thing's great – an excellent document of the moment, but more timeless too – and other titles include "L'Elephant", "As Above So Below", "On On On On", "Lorelei", and "Booming & Zooming".

VariousBoombox 2 – Early Independent Hip Hop, Electro, & Disco Rap 1979 to 1983 (3LP set – with bonus download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $28.99 33.99
The real sound of the old school, and the best beats from the streets – the kind of early underground hip hop tracks that still sound wonderful after all these years! These are tracks from the earliest years of the style – when funk was as much a part of the music as lyrics – and tracks were often surprisingly long, and spun out in the best sort of party mode – with an excellent focus on funky drum breaks and basslines, matched by lyrics from youthful crews and MCs that set the standard for countless artists to come! As with the first volume, the track selection here is wonderful – a mix of key classics from the Harlem and South Bronx scenes, plus some overlooked gems that are well-worth discovering – all wrapped up with the usual top-shelf attention to detail we've come to expect from Soul Jazz Records! The package features loads of great notes and photos – and titles include "Maximus Party" by TJ Swann & Pee Wee Mel, "Death Rap" by Margo's Kool Out Crew, "Lookin Good" by Eddie Cheba, "One Time Two Time Blow Your Mind" by MC Rock Lovely, "Let's Rock" by Harlem World Crew, "School Days" by Busy Bee, "Ah That's The Joint" by Kool DJ AJ, "Dancin Party People" by Little Skarsky, "Young Ladies" by Lonnie Love, "Rappin Partee Groove" by Rappers Rapp Group, "The People's Message Take Two" by Terry Lewis & Wild Flower, "Shake Your Body" by Manujothi, "Dr Ice Rap" by Zoot II, and "Rock The Message Rap" by Grand Master Chilly T & Stevie G.

Amazing import compilation from the late 90s featuring the best underground MC's and producers of the day – at least as dope as the Lyricist Lounge LP's. Almost all of the tracks are unique to this compilation and not available on any other LP or 12" – like getting 18 dope 12"'s for the price of a double LP. Tracks include Jigmastas "Threat", Network Reps w/Punch & Words "Games, Dames & Automobiles", Consequence, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Mike Zoot & FT "Nobody", Rasco w/Planet Asia "How Many X's", El Da Sensei w/Oorganized Konfusion, Mike Zoot & FT of "Frontline", Frankenstein w/Choclair "So I", the High & Mighty "Sun Moon & Stars", Walkin' Large "Self", Natruel "Natruel On Top", Lootpack "New Year's Resolutions", Eddie Brock "Relax, Relate, Release", Brixx w/Mos Def "If It's Allright Y'all", Da Grassroots w/Mr Roam "Price of Livin", Square One "Dayz To Come", L-Fudge "Dimmin' the Life", Ed OG "Let's Be Realistic", Matt Fingaz w/The League, P Dap & FT "Shoot Out", Mathematic w/ Bahamdia "Following Goals", and production from Kut Masta Kurt, DJ Spinna, Mr. Walt of the Beatminerz, Madlib, Hi Tek and Shawn J.

✨✧ OnraChinoiseries Pt 3 ... LP
All City, 2017. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
The triumphant conclusion of French beatmaker/producer Onra's Chinoiseries! 10 years after it began, Chinoiseries still trades in timeless boom bap, built from and inspired by and built from samples from Chinese music Onra picked up on his travels – giving it a very natural flow and a cohesive vibe. Volume 3 finds him really ratcheting up the moodier aspects – strings, bits of vocal and more – without skimping at all on the compelling beats and percussion. Wonderful stuff – here's hoping he comes back to it in the future beyond this stated final chapter! "The Final Chapter", "Loyalty", "Autumn Shining Over The Calm Lake", "Reminds Me Of...", "Hold My Hand", "Fake Porcelain", "Memories From 1968", "Last Cup Of Wine", "Zoodiac", "Trip To Yunnan", "A Distant Dream", "Moonlit Street", "Like The Seasons", "Voices In My Head", "Incantation", "Pearl Song", "Betrayal", "Persons On The Blacklist", "Bye Bye" and more.
