VariousPeanut Butter Wolf Presents – Stones Throw Ten Years (plus bonus mix CD) ... CD
Stones Throw, 1990s/2000s. Used 2 CDs ... $7.99
A great 2CD set of some of the best underground hip hop, deep funk and hazy leftfield jazz groove of the past decade on Stones Throw – compiled by Peanut Butter Wolf from the first 10 years of releases put out by his mightily influential label – some of which is appearing on CD for the first time ever! The well chosen tracklist is a wonderful overview of the far-reaching, but still strangely connected sounds Stones Throw has gifted us with over the years. You get the work of relative superstar projects led by J Dilla & Madlib, the anything goes jazzy soul sounds from Aloe Blacc and Dudley Perkins, straighter hip hop from MED, atmospheric digital grooves from Kousik, hard hitting funky soul from Stark Reality and Co-Real Artists, and so much more! The first retrospective of what we hope will be more decades of Stones Throw to come! 25 tracks in disc 1: "The Red" by Jaylib, "In Your Area" by Peanut Butter Wolf feat Planet Asia, "Low Class Conspiracy" by Quasimoto, "America's Most Blunted" by Madvillain, "Two Can Win" by J Dilla, "Take Me" by Fabulous Souls, "What About You" by Co-Real Artists, "Move Pt 2" by Oh No feat J Dilla & Roc C, "The Payback" by Madlib, "Falling" by Dudley Perkins, "Sunrays" by Yesterdays New Quintet, "Arrive" by Aloe Blacc, "Whenimondamic" by Lootpack, "Comrades & Dreams" (PB Wolf mix) by Stark Reality and more! Disc 2 is a bangin' hour long mix set featuring many of the above mentioned titles – and more from the Stones Throw vault – spun by DJ J Rocc! CD

AmnestyFree Your Mind – The 700 West Sessions ... LP
Now Again/Stones Throw, 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $21.99 23.98
Rare funk from the Indy scene of the early 70s – the long-overdue release of material recorded by a really hard-jamming, horn-heavy combo! Amnesty have a sound that's awash in the best large group influences of the time – a bit of Earth Wind & Fire, a bit of Parliament/Funkadelic, but also a grittier, more guitar-based groove at times too – one that rumbles heavily at the bottom of the rhythms, with a sound that's like Norman Whitfield-era Motown, taken to much greater extremes! There's actually a lot more Detroit going on in the work than Indy – but the horns also have a jazzier, more open-ended quality too – not just parts penned for simple funky rhythms, but ones that show some influence from the more righteous side of the jazz spectrum. The material was all recorded on two dates in 1973 – but only issued here for the first time – and together, the tracks are a great example of a hip group from the underground, really letting loose with a great sense of freedom. There's some vocals on the record, but almost more of a focus on the instrumentation overall – and titles include "Can I Help You", "Love Fades", "Trouble Will Remain", "We've Come A Long Way", "Liberty", "Mister President", "Free Your Mind", "We Have Love", and "Lord Help Me".

Beat Konducta (Madlib)Beat Konducta Vol 1 – Movie Scenes ... LP
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
A platter of Madlib beats – the first in a series of instrumental hip hop from 'Lib's Beat Konducta (formerly Beat Conductor) moniker! Madlib's production work has always had a filmic groove, and this set collects and assembles the most cinematic of said beats into an (unsurprisingly) incredible 2-sided piece. The soundscapes really kind of run the gamut of his hip hop styles – always soulful, and always funky, whether he's rocking a stone funk or an electro-modeled groove. Honestly, how much longer is it going to take for the mainstream to finally catch up with this genius!?! Tracks include "The Comeback (Madlib)", "The Payback (Gotta)", "Face The Sun (Africa)", "Stax (Strings)", "Left On Silverlake (Ride)", "Offbeat (Grooves)","Pyramids (Change)", "Eternal Broadcaster (Authentic)" and more!

Beat Konducta (Madlib)Beat Konducta Vol 3 – Beat Konducta In India ... LP
Stones Throw, 2007. New Copy ... $16.99 17.98
Hazy beatcraft steeped in Indian soundtrack style funk, strings and percussion from the indefatigable Madlib – Volume 3 in the increasingly adventurous and conceptual outings of the Beat Konducta! This time out Madlib, er, Beat Konducta is conducting beats, strings & things from India and/or otherwise East – but the way in which the beats bluntly thump is quintessential Madlib – you know it and love it from the first beat! 'Lib really breathes fresh life into this approach – going miles deeper than anyone out there doing the Bollywood-hip hop hybrid – coming up with a sound all his own. Masterful! "Onthanewthing", "Indian Deli", "Rumble", "Dancing Girls Theme", "Piano Garden", "Dark Alley Incidental Music", "Early Party", "Fifth Chant", "The Rip Off (Scene 3)", and "Sitar Ride".

Benny SingsCity Pop ... LP
Stones Throw, 2019. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
We've loved the music of Benny Sings for years – and can't understand why the man's not a much bigger success at a worldwide level – because his songs have the gentle soul and careful construction of the sorts of music that used to grace the airwaves decades back! Yet maybe the obscurity is always what makes Benny so great – as the songs here feel like lost AOR gems from a time when folks really knew how to make a record – but also sifted down to a core approach that never lets things get too overly-polished or commercial – kind of that modern love of classic modes that we also find in the music of Ed Motta, even though Ed's a very different singer overall. Titles include "Familiar", "Not Enough", "Duplicate", "Dreamin", "Summerlude", "Everything I Know", and "Nakameguro". LP, Vinyl record album

Grandmilly & ShozaeAdventureland ... LP
Stones Throw, 2018. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
Soulful and moody Long Island duo hip hop on Stones Throw – Grandmilly on the mic and Shozae on the beats! There's a kind of eerie mood to it, with some really great use of vocal samples throughout, and an approach to the beatcraft that's atmospheric but never too murky – always in service of the forthright rhymes. Grandmilly & Shozae both have been making steady waves in the east coast scene, together and with others, and this the first full length collaboration – and a promising one at that! Includes "Cyber Tech Suits", "Street Life", "Graffiti", "Pleasant Times", "Ferris Wheel", "Army Of Kings", "Alright", "The Man Show", "Chancellor" and "Phillip Lim (Grand Closing)".

✨✧ Mayer HawthorneJust Ain't Gonna Work Out/When I Said Goodbye (limited edition heart-shaped 10 inch on red vinyl) ... 12-inch
Stones Throw, 2008. Very Good- ... $8.99
A gritty, groovy bedroom soul single from Mayer Hawthorne – his debut for Stones Throw! "Just Ain't Gonna Work Out" is a timeless funky soul jam that feels like a lost, late 60s Detroit indie soul single on the vocal tip – but done over a minimalist funk beat that feels like something from the Cold Chillin playbook! Hawthorne sings both lead and harmony vocals on this sweet natured break up tune – doing it all himself, for kind of a one man group soul sound. Where the A-side nods a bit to golden age of hip hop with the breakbeat production aesthetic, "When I Said Goodbye" feels a bit more like and old school midtempo soul jam – with a tasty little bit of guitar in the mix, again a funky low fi production that's totally endearing. Sweet and flavorful – here's hoping a full length is in the works! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Homeboy Sandman & EdanHumble Pi EP ... LP
Stones Throw, 2018. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
A tight EP from indie rap dream duo Homeboy Sandman & Edan – and one we're happy to see out on Stones Throw, too, as it's strongly in the spirit of the label's leftfield hip hop roots! Edan's production here is cool balance of psychedelic synth funk and straightforward compelling beatcraft, such a fine foil for Homeboy Sandman's distinctive flow. It's pretty timeless in the artistry, while unafraid to riff on contemporary cultural shortcomings circa the late twenty-tens – and titles include "Grim Sessions", "The Gut", "Rock & Roll Indian Dance", "Unwavering Mind", "That Moment When...", "#NeverUseTheInternetAgain"and "Evolution Of The Sandman".

J Dilla at his grittiest, most rugged & raw – in both the production and rhyme realm – with all beats and rhymes by the Dilla himself! This set originally opened our ears to a different side of Dilla, a harder hitting aesthetic, with beats and grooves from out of leftfield that draw you in and hypnotize. Ruff Draft was originally released as a vinyl only EP for the European market, and it was tough to get ahold of from the get go – so hats off to Stones Throw for giving it the reverent re-release it deserves – fleshed out with bonus tracks! Titles include "Let's Take It Back", "Reckless Driving", "Nothing Like This", "The $", "Make'Em NV", "Crushin'", "Wild" (a previously unreleased track that's nothing short of mindblowing – a minimalist masterpiece), "Take Notice" and more. 14 tracks on 2LPs.

J Dilla (Jay Dee)Donuts ... LP
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99 23.98
The classic batch of instrumentals from J Dilla – one that strongly transcends the hip hop genre – and perhaps his rawest, and most adventurous listening experience ever! The loopy soul samples, rich synth/electro shine, and thumping bass and soul beats that Dilla largely made his name on are laced throughout, but he also takes things a step into stranger territory – with spacey elements that buzz as much as they groove! The cuts are never less than soulful and funky, and never really steps into his peer Madlib's brand of the weeded out style, either. We love how raw this all feels, too! It's easily identifiable as the work of Jay Dee, but at the same time, wholly unpredictable! One of the best releases that Stone's Throw ever released – instrumental or vocal! Includes "Donuts (Intro & Outro)", "Workinonit", "Waves", "Light My Fire", "People", "Mash", "Airworks", "Lightworks", "Stepson Of The Clapper", "One Eleven", "Don't Cry", "Geek Down", "Thunder", "Gobstopper", "Walkinonit", "U-Love", "Last Donut Of The Night" and more.

JaylibChampion Sound ... LP
Stones Throw, 2003. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99 22.99
Damn! The MASSIVE collaborative album from the dynamic duo of Madlib and J Dilla! Essentially, Madlib handles the production on the even numbers in the set with Dilla on the vocals, and the roles are reversed on the odd numbers. Each producer does his own thing, as only he can do it – Madlib brings the funky sampler genius – and Dilla rocks the thumping Detroit hip hop soul crunch. A number of guest rhymers step to the mic, including Talib Kweli, Percee P, Frank-N-Dank & Guilty Simpson, and the flow is seamless. Not only was this one of the best hip hop albums of '03, it also has a dyed-in-the-wool classic production style, and it sounds just as great a few years later! So very highly recommended! Tracks include "L.A. To Detroit", "McNasty Filth" with Frank-n-Dank, "Nowadayz", "Champion Sound", "The Red", "Heavy", "Raw S*!t" with Kweli, "The Official", "The Heist", "The Mission", "React" with Quasimodo, "The Exclusive" with Percee P, "Survival Test", "Starz" and "No Games".

A massive exploration of the music of Kashmere Stage Band – the legendary Texas funk combo whose work has been pushed heavily over the years by Wax Poetics, Stones Throw, and many others! The set goes even deeper than any of the previous vinyl reissues of work by the group – and features some previously unreleased tracks, and alternate takes on their funkiest numbers!

✨✧ MndsgnBody Wash ... LP
Stones Throw, 2016. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
A creative leap for Mndsgn – moving further into an 80s-inspired west coast boogie funk and soul vibe on Body Wash that he really just hinted at on Yawn Zen! In a way, he's working in a nice realm somewhere between the electro funk heat of peers like Dam Funk and the hazy, psych-fusion-soul jazz inspired vibe of a Thundercat or a Flying Lotus – but we don't want to diminish Mndsgn's distinctiveness, he's really in his own realm here. Keyboards, beats and atmospheric vocals set the mood, the latter element giving it a soulful depth we hadn't really charted for Mndsgn on his more abstract beats-focus work! Includes "Overture", "Cosmic Perspective", "Transmissionnn", "Lather", "Where Ever U R", "Vague/Recalibrate", "Ya Own Way", "Prelude 2 Purification", the appropriately exploratory "Searchin" (parts I, II & III) and "Guess It's All Over".

Spare moogy tunes from Jerry Paper – a singer who sounds about as you might expect from the cover, but who also has a surprisingly catchy style as well! Jerry clearly loves sounds from the past – as there's bits of AOR and boogie soul at work on the album – but he also never tries to do too much, and the real charm of the record is its simplicity – its strong reliance on keyboards next to Paper's vocals, which themselves never overdo things either. We really appreciate that Jerry's not trying to pitch himself as another blue-eyed singer for the LA scene – and find ourselves surprisingly charmed by tunes that include "Your Cocoon", "Grey Area", "Commercial Break", "Everything Borrowed", "Hugh Laughs", and "Losing The Game".

Lord Quas returns for another batch of booming, mad-blunted hip hop – an even more sprawling, surreal ride than the Unseen LP! Quasimoto was and still is Madlib's outlet for his most cartoonishly eccentric tendencies – and he really lets 'em fly on this set! The Unseen LP had more strains of the smoky jazz vibe of 'Lib's more mature productions – buried underneath the wacky funk and Quas/'Lib's instantly identifiable, hilarious mouthbreather rhymes. This one keeps it surreal throughout – sort of a cross between Madvillain, Prince Paul and a Max Fleischer cartoon – with Melvin Van Peebles dropping in here and there! Tracks include "Bullysh*t", "Greenery", "Crime", "Hydrant Game", "Don't Blank", "Bus Ride", "Bartender Say", "The Exclusive" feat MED, "Closer" feat Madvillain, "Strange Piano", "Life Is. . .", "Tomorrow Never Knows" and more.

SteoplesSix Rocks ... LP
Stones Throw, 2017. Sealed ... $11.99
A record that's as stark as its cover – a very cool collaboration from LA beatmaker GB (Gifted & Blessed) and British singer Yeofi Andoh – done in a style that may well be opening up whole new frontiers for underground cosmic soul! The record's got a nicely rough vibe – songs that emerge equally from the beats and vocals, but never with a polished feel at all – almost as if they're being improvised in the studio, as both artists try to bring their best to the proceedings, while also respecting the space of the other. The album's definitely one of the most offbeat in years from Stones Throw – but we mean that in the best way possible – and the whole thing is a great antidote to the kind of soul that's too easily fed up the food chain from the underground to the mainstream. Titles include "Fated", "Best", "We Like The Dark", "Real Enough To Be", "Six Rocks", "Roles", and "Courting Sunshine". LP, Vinyl record album

If you're expecting to hear familiar sounds of the continent, you'll be disappointed – but if you're ready for this amazing vision of a new global sonic landscape, then you'll really be blown away – as Sudan Archives weaves together the kind of cosmic currents you might expect from Stones Throw with lots of deep beats and basslines of her own creation – peppered occasionally with sounds from the Ghana visit, yet all fused into a new ball of sound that bristles and crackles with creative energy.

Stones Throw, 2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A batch of eclectic postmodern soul that's as original and instantly gratifying as anything we've heard on Stones Throw! Aloe Blacc more than lives up to the expectations we had for him after hearing his first couple of Stones Throw singles. His previous work in the adventurous hip hop outfit Emanon really only hints at his solo work – and it's even more bold in its idiosyncratic approach to an appealing groove! The almost entirely self-produced Shine Through (Oh No and Madlib produce one track each) is rife with an electronic sheen, touching on a bubbling psychedelic soul vibe we've never really heard before. A couple of tracks have guitar, bass, and keys that bring a more organic, but still kind of otherworldly groove – even touching on a cosmic Latin vibe on a couple of tunes! Tracks include "Whole World", a totally re-imagined take on Sam Cooke's "Long Time Coming" (produced by Oh No), "Are You Ready", "Busking", "Bailar", "Nascimento", "Dance For Life", "Patria Mia", "Shine Through", "Caged Birdsong", "Arrive", "Want Me", "One Inna" (produced by Madlib) and "I'm Beautiful".

A Stones Throw sci-fi masterpiece – one that was destined for greatness from conception, but we're still pretty well blown away by the final product! MC Doom and beatmaster Madlib couldn't be better suited for a collaboration. As much as we've dug the best of Doom's material of the last couple years, he's always needed a good editor – and Madlib brings nothing but the best sci-fi sound collages, scratches, and titanically driving funky beats – the grooved out 70s side of 'Lib's personality is wisely given a powder, while in the company of a vocal presence that's as insane as Doom. When it's not so pounding, the sound drops into the kinda gloomy, murky crackle of earliest Wu Tang. This is easily the best album of its kind since Dr. Octagon tore the flood gates open. Essential!!! "The Illest Villains", "Accordian", "Bistro", "Raid" feat Medaphoar, "America's Most Blunted", "Rainbows", "Curls", "Money Folder", "Hardcore Hustle","Fancy Clown", "Supervillain", "All Caps", "Rhinestone Cowboy" and more.

✨✧ NxWorries (Anderson Paak & Knxwledge)Yes Lawd! (with download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge's full length debut as a duo – and the most triumphant Stones Throw record in years! To this (still early) point in young .Paak's career, his voice has already proved to be a prime vessel for natural grit and mood, if not gamechanger songwriting, best paired with crackling, funk-steeped hip hop soul production. That's the case whether he's producing himself, working with a giant like Dr. Dre, or paired as he is here with Knxledge. Knx's production is a perfect backdrop – beats out front in the mix, classic Cali sample funk and soul framing the vocals – with a lingering haze holding it all together amazingly well! Intentional or not, Yes Lawd channels earlier Stones Throw classic LPs like Jaylib and Madvillain in the way it pairs distinctive contemporary talents for a joint duo effort, and after .Paak's solo shot Malibu, it's his second potential classic in a single year! Includes "Livvin", "Wngs", "What More Can I Say", "Kutless", "Lyk Dis", "Can't Stop", "Get Bigger", "Scared Money", "Suede", "Starlite", "Sidepiece", "Jodi", "Link Up", "Another Time", "Fkku" and more.

Funky madness! This one's exactly what is says – a live mix, recorded by this hip funky combo, sort of a mixtape of classic funky tunes, all slammed together in one massive performance! Breakestra run through some of the biggest funky 45s of the 60s and 70s, jamming hard in one live to tape performance that takes us back to the classic days of the JBs grooving in the studio with James Brown. Plenty of choppy guitars, hot bubbly organ, sweet keyboard licks, and hard heavy horns throughout! CD

Bass-heavy funk with a definite 80s influence – but served up here with a contemporary crispness that's the best calling card of Stimulator Jones! In a world where so many others find it easy to completely cop the sounds of the post-disco years, these guys take all the best elements and weave them into something that's completely their own – unabashedly bright and bubbly in their choice of melody, and crafting tunes that are way more than just a blend of beats, bass, and keyboards – even though the keyboards here are pretty darn great overall! Titles include "Need Your Body", "Water Slide", "Give My All", "Feel Your Arms Around Me", "Together", "Trippin On You", and "Suite Luv". CD

✨✧ Savath & SavalasLa Llama ... CD
Stones Throw, 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
The best work yet from Guillermo Scott Herren's most organic venue in his ever expanding world of aural mood mastery – the early 70s South American folk psychedelia inspired trio Savath & Savalas – the group's first album for Stones Throw! Eva Puyuelo Muns brings hushed, lovely vocals, sometimes harmonizing with male voices, and Herren's textured atmosphere blends post Tropicalia Brazilian psych folk influences with ambient experimentalism incredibly well! The group pinpoints the early 70s sounds that were happening in Brazil, specifically in Recife, Brazil, but we're hearing some pretty spacey stuff from the electronic experimentalist realms in the sound, too (up to and including Guillermo's work as Prefuse 73) – and it's pretty amazing that Herren, Muns and Roberto Carlos Lange are crafting grooves in a coherent way with such disparate influences. Titles include "La Llama", "Carajuillo", "Una Cura", "La Loba", "Barceloneta", Postlude", "No Despierta", "Adeu" and more. CD

We weren't certain whether this dope little compilation qualified as a soundtrack or not, but we are certain it might as well be considered THE soundtrack to the first half of the oughties, with the cream of the Stones Throw stable lacing this collabo with the Adult Swim network with pure niceness start to finish.

We'll be frank and admit we don't know as much about video games as we do vulgar, latenight cable cartoons, but this is a tight stand alone set of fresh Stones Throw hip hop & funk errata.

Stones Throw, 2018. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
A tight little EP by LA beatcraft maestro Knxwledge – showing some impressive stylistic range! The vocal track "Relapse" features Traffic on the rhymes, Knxwledge's production bringing in a laidback funky electro soul vibe for Traffic's gritty, though introspective LA streets-schooled rhymes. While "Relapse" finds Knxwledge crafting fairly straightforward, though no less effective hip hop than we're used to from him, the other side features a series abstract moody instrumentals – including "Rton", "ER", "Dnthesitate", "Hrdtobe" & "Summrain (Rton)". 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Jerry PaperLike A Baby ... LP
Stones Throw, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Spare moogy tunes from Jerry Paper – a singer who sounds about as you might expect from the cover, but who also has a surprisingly catchy style as well! Jerry clearly loves sounds from the past – as there's bits of AOR and boogie soul at work on the album – but he also never tries to do too much, and the real charm of the record is its simplicity – its strong reliance on keyboards next to Paper's vocals, which themselves never overdo things either. We really appreciate that Jerry's not trying to pitch himself as another blue-eyed singer for the LA scene – and find ourselves surprisingly charmed by tunes that include "Your Cocoon", "Grey Area", "Commercial Break", "Everything Borrowed", "Hugh Laughs", and "Losing The Game".

Treasure/Stones Throw, 1984. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Two rare electro soul tracks from west coast underground legend The Prophet! "Right On Time" is quite spare, and has more in the way of beats and basslines than it does a bold lead vocal from the man himself – as The Prophet almost seems to be lurking in the background at times, letting the groove speak for itself! "Tonight" is more upfront and funky – with a bassline that's nicely complicated at times, in a way that changes up from the usual boogie vibe of the time – and which gets especially weird when the chorus keyboards come in! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Eric Boss (Myron & E)Modern Love (with bonus download) ... LP
Mocambo (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
The solo debut of Eric Boss – a singer you might know as part of the duo of Myron & E – who gave us some great harmony soul records on Stones Throw and Timmion! Here, Eric is a much straighter soul singer overall – working with a sharp funky punch in the backings, with plenty of Mighty Mocambo help that you'd guess from the record's placement on their label! Tunes move nicely between 60s and 70s funky soul modes, but often with a more complex, contemporary vibe on the rhythms – and although the set features guest work from Gizelle Smith and Gift Of Gab, Eric hardly needs any help to make a strong statement on his own. Titles include "Bad Luck", "Closer To The Spirit", "I Wanna Ride", "Spiders", "Get Next To You", "Forward", "Merry Jane", and "Your Life Is Up To You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DionRuby Baby/Donna The Prima Donna ... CD
Columbia/Ace (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
A pair of Columbia Records classics from Dion – back to back on a single CD! First up is Ruby Baby – a solo debut by Dion DiMucci – working here away from his earlier Belmonts group, and really finding a way to sharpen both his vocals, and his approach to the music! Dion's really crafting his lead strongly on these tunes – emerging partly as a pop act, but also with some of the more sophisticated stylings that a singer like Bobby Darin was hitting as he aged past the teen set – even with slight jazz currents in the mix at times! The title cut was a huge hit for Dion – the classic "Ruby Baby" – and that gem sits here nicely alongside others that include "The End Of The World", "Fever", "The Loneliest Man In The World", "He'll Only Hurt You", "You're Nobody Til Somebody Loves You", "Gonna Make It Alone", and "Will Love Ever Come My Way". On Donna The Prima Donna, Dion really sounds great – stepping away from the straighter pop of his roots, and mixing in a bit of soul, and just a tiny current of the headier sounds he'd unlock later in the 60s! The production style is pop, but the material often goes far past that – into territory that definitely has more mature themes, but still delivered with that Dion DiMucci flair for swinging a lyric in just the right way! And as before, one of Dion's strongest suits is the way that he's able to bring in this subtle current of sadness, all while trying to shake it off with a catchy tune. Titles include "Donna The Prima Donna", "Flim Flam", "Oh Happy Days", "You're Mine", "I Can't Believe", "Be Careful Of The Stones That You Throw", "Troubled Mind", "This Little Girl Of Mine" and "Sweet Sweet Baby". Excellent reissue package – with great sound, and the usual Ace Records attention to notes and details! CD

An absolute funky monster! This set lays out an incredible batch of funk era singles from the vaults of Galaxy Records – and it shakes and burns all the way through, with lost funk bombs Bobby Rush, Rodger Collins, Bill Coday, Bobby Eaton, the Debonairs and others! It's comprised of mostly obscure 45s representing the stone funkiest records ever released by the Oakland-based Galaxy label – which was at this point sort of serving as the farm club for big brother label Fantasy Records. This one's essential, kids – just as worthy of your funk-loving dollar as the legendary rare funk compilations on Jazzman, Soul Fire or Stones Throw! 22 tracks in all: "Foxy Girls In Oakland", "Get Your Lie Straight", "Chicken Heads" by Bobby Rush, "Bring It On Up" by Loleatta Holloway, "I Love Her Too" by Lenny Williams, "People Say" by JJ Malone, "Try The Life" by Everyday People, "Man Power" (previously unreleased) by Ben & Larry, "My Money Is Funny" by the Right Kind, "The Iron Horse" by Merl Saunders & Heavy Turbulence, "I Get What I Want" by the Sequins and lots more!

✨✧ Mos DefEcstatic ... LP
Downtown/Universal, 2009. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mos Def's first and only LP for the Downtown label, and it's a real return to top shelf, distinctive hip hop for Mos – if the music retail world wasn't in such a strange, troubled period circa '09 this woulda made a much bigger impact and be considered a classic comeback! It's absolutely strong stuff, and to be honest, much better than we would have expected – even if we knew he had great hip hop left in him after some creatively wayward post-millennium years. The beats are compelling, unpredictable, and steeped in abstract global funk that would sound at home on Stones Throw – some of the beats are literally Stones Throw, given Madlib's Beat Konducta and Oh No's Oxperimental sounds to be found. If we weren't already loving it, Slick Rick drops an unforgettable guest appearance on the the moody "Auditorium", Georgia Anne Muldrow does her inimitable thing on "Roses", and Talib Kweli rhymes on "History". Mos rhymes skillfully throughout, and with an infectious immediacy, as if he dropped records this tight all the time. Sadly, he doesn't, so this one's all the more rewarding! Other tracks include "Twilite Speedball", "Revelations", "Pretty Danger", "Quiet Dog", "The Embassy", "Wahid", "Priority" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Dial, 1978. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Joe Tex is definitely not without funk on this sweet little set – a smoking TK Records session that carries strongly from the vibe of his "I Gotcha" years! Longtime producer Buddy Killen is still on deck to keep everything tight and right – a mix of Joe's southern soul roots with some sharper elements of the 70s – served up here at a level that may well be one of the most perfect blends of all the great Joe Tex styles – even though the record itself has kind of a hokey title and cover (which seems to have a bunch of white folks, obviously "without funk", ready to throw stones at Tex!) Joe wrote all the lyrics himself, and the few mellow moments have a wonderfully heartbreaking quality. Titles include "Loose Caboose", "Finger Popped Myself Into The Poor House", "How Do You Spell Relief", and "Who Gave Birth To The Funk". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy RowlesWeather In A Jazz Vane ... CD
Andex/VSOP, 1959. Used ... $9.99
One of the few records cut as a leader by west coast piano legend Jimmy Rowles – and one of the grooviest too! The album's a septet session, one that has Jimmy working with some great horn talents that include Bill Holman on tenor, Herb Geller on alto, Lee Katzman on trumpet, and Bob Enevoldsen on trombone. Arrangements are by Holman and Rowles – in a style that's got some beautifully evocative touches, as on Holman's other work of the time – almost a mixture of Kenton tonal writing with some of the lighter west coast styles of the time – often on familiar tunes, but in a way that really transforms them into sprightly little pictures in sound! Titles include "Heat Wave", "Throwin Stones At The Sun", "When The Sun Comes Out", "Winter Weather", and "Too Hot For Words". CD features 3 alternate takes too! CD
