Tommy Boy, 1985. Very Good+ (reissue)... $24.99
Faithful reissue of the classic cut and paste single that sparked off an entire sub genre of hip hop in the early 80s! Double Dee & Steinski mix together dozens of samples of everything from JFK speeches and cartoon bits to movie dialog and even Mae West over a bed of classic break beats and early hip hop tracks. The Payoff mix is based on Whiz Kid's "Play That Beat", Lesson Two uses lots of James Brown, Lesson Three has everything else. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Island, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant work! Would music ever be this great again? We're hard pressed to think so. Trevor Horn, fresh from his vamped-up work with Yes, hits the beat box with the Dudley, Horn, and Jeczalik team, and comes up with these crossover instrumental tunes that took a hip hop groove to the next level, shoved together sheets of sound and noises, and probably influenced the sound of 95% of TV commercials in the 90s! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Gasoline Alley, 1993. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early 90s anti-gang rap from a Chicago artist who really didn't do much else. There was a small radio groundswell behind this track when it was out, that has kind of an imitation G-funk feel to it. The "Stepper's mix" is just an extended instrumental. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Prelude, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the biggest classics from Sharon Redd's early 80s run on Prelude Records – a beat-heavy tune that's also got some sweet electric touches! There's a nice hook running through the whole tune – made even nicer by Sharon's vocals – and the single also features a mix by Francois K! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Truth & Soul, 2007. Used (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Wu Tang lyrical swordsman Raekwon teams with Brooklyn's finest modern funk groovers El Michels Affair on the "PJs (From Afar)" – a live in the studio re-imagining on the Pete Rock/Raekwon/Masta Killa track "PJs" – plus a handful of cinematic soul styled instrumentals! "PJs" is a live in the studio re-imagining of the Pete Rock/Raekwon/Masta Killa cut of the same name – a true hybrid of 70s style funky soundtrack soul – with an overall vibe that's more attuned to golden age hip hop thanks to the solid wordplay from the Chef! The Affair's live backing is surprisingly hip hop centered, too – with an incredibly sinister bass groove and persistent funky drums leading the way! "A Little Sloppy" is a brief bit of instrumental funk with a more ragged drum style. "Phil My Don" is a mirror image on the flip, with some spacey soul keys out front. "This One's For My Baby" is a longer funky instrumental, the most cinematic sounding tune of all. A straight up hip hop funk gem! 12-inch, Vinyl record

"Smurf" is a sweet bit of electro funk from Tyrone – with a tight breakdance beat wobbling through the cut, and lots of bass work over the top! An electro classic, in a pic sleeve featuring an early Futura painting on the front! 12-inch, Vinyl record

One of the hardest to find and best Strong City singles! You get 2 early Tony D tracks, with his trademark boom bap sound, and even a turn at the mic from Tony, a sweet Jazzy Jay cut up/transformer take on Eddie Drennon's block party break number "Do What You Gotta Do" and an early, early Diamond D production with funky hyped beat and rhymes by Raheem! 12-inch, Vinyl record

OdysseyInside Out/Love's Alright ... 12-inch
RCA, 1982. Very Good ... $5.99
A sweet sweet groove from Odyssey – tripping along in a snapping 80s beat supported by some "wheeet" keyboard work! The hook is very tasty – sung along by the group with a really nice little swing that makes the tune more playfully soulful than you'd guess at first! "Love's Alright" is great too – a stepping little groover with a warm bubbling groove that never lets you go! 12-inch, Vinyl record

PrinceSign O The Times (LP)/La La La Hee Hee Hee ... 12-inch
Paisley Park, 1987. Very Good (pic cover)... $8.99
Sure, the politics seem a bit silly now – but the track's still one of Prince's last really compelling hits. It's got a totally infectious hook, a spare Timmy Thomas-ish beat, and a strangely captivating vocal that really sticks with us. The flip's a bit silly – a 10 minute extended number with a silly jam kind of feel. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Cash Money, 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The B-side wins again, and it's by a landslide this time. Perhaps the greatest rap collabo in recent memory, "What Happened To That Boy" puts Birdman and The Clipse slanging the fiercest of cocaine raps over the hottest Neptunes beat ever. Add the fact that this song is super tough to find in this format, let alone the instrumental version, and this one's a no-brainer. Prrrrrrrrrr. . . 12-inch, Vinyl record

Party Time, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If we remember right, this cut by female MC Dimples D was the inspiration for Run-DMC's "Sucker MCs" and Roxanne Shante's "Runaway", or maybe it was the other way around. In any case, a nice example of early Marly Marl production over a snapping Lynn drum beat, that quotes Red Alert's "Heaven & Hell" theme. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Jus Born, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The seminal electro classic, with the hook that just won't quit. We always look back on this single as one of those proto-hip hop records, that doesn't really qualify as hip hop or even rap, but are almost instantly recognizable to heads everywhere. No rhymes here, just chanted/sung vocals over a popping drum machine beat and some nice electro sounding production that's heavy on the synths in the best possible way. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Harlem International, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure later tune by The Whatnauts – issued years after their classics for All-Platinum in the early 70s – but proof that the group is always great, no matter what the setting! This tune's got a mean mean boogie groove – and was sampled to great fame by De La Soul in "Ring Ring Ring", but stands beautifully on is own. There's a rollerskating bounce to the track that's completely sublime – and the tune steps on and on and on without missing a beat! Not on any LP, either! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Black RiotDay In The Life/Warlock ... 12-inch
Fourth Floor, 1988. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 incredible tracks from a young Todd Terry – a single that really put him on the map, and still sounds great today! "Day In The Life" features this cool wash of sound – surging and dropping on the beat, which is also augmented by some great splashing drums! The tune's got a darkly cosmic sound that's clearly the precursor of the broken beat approach – and it's backed here by "Warlock", which has an equally great sound. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has a sticker.)
