✨✧ Beastie BoysIll Communication (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Grand Royal, 1994. Used 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
What can we say? The Beasties continue their manic trio hip hop style mixed with the live jazz/funk/garage (as in rock, not house) sound and keyboards by Money Mark – featuring a bunch of their classic material, and underappreciated album cuts. The Beastie could really do no wrong at this point in their unlikely long career. And you can't go wrong with any LP that samples Ramelzee and K-Rob's "Beat Bop." Our favorite track was always "Get It Together", featuring a very sharp Q-Tip nearly stealing the show, and other tracks include the unstoppable "Sure Shot" and "Sabotage", plus "Futterman's Rule", "Shambala", "The Scoop", "Do It", "Heart Attack Man", "Bodhisattva Wow", and "Root Down".

✨✧ RamonesRamones (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sire, 1976. Very Good (reissue)... $11.99
The birth of punk rock as a bonafide genre, and not only that, a record that changed the rules – stripping rock and roll back down raw essentials – and unwittingly appearing as one of the greatest rock albums ever made. Given the stripped, buzzing simplicity, it's impossible to describe this record without sounding like a blow hard, but you really can't overstate what these four goony guys from Queens accomplished. 30-odd years of the most visceral pop music concentrated into 2 minute, 3 chord blasts of beautiful sonic catharsis – and they could barely even play! It's astonishing. Thanks boys! Tracks include "Blitzkrieg Bop", "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend", "Beat On The Brat", "Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue", "I Don't Wanna Around With You", "Loudmouth", and "Today Your Love Tomorrow The World".

✨✧ BeatlesPlease Please Me ... LP
Parlophone, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overstuffed album of early greatness – served up with a classic image of the Fab Four on the cover! The tunes are a mix of Lennon/McCartney originals and American soul and rock numbers that are reinterpreted wonderfully by the group – in ways that perfectly show why, unlike most of their contemporaries, The Beatles weren't just trying for slavish imitation of American authenticity – and instead were already taking off with new ideas inspired by the music! Titles include "Please Please Me", "Love Me Do", "Misery", "Anna", "I Saw Her Standing There", "Boys", "Baby IT's You", "Do You Want To Know A Secret", "Twist & Shout", "A Taste Of Honey", and "Chains". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK stereo pressing – black label with silver text, and black/white EMI logo at top. Cover is glossy on front, matte on back – either late 60s or early 70s pressing, most likely)
Also available Please Please Me ... CD 3.99

✨✧ PortisheadPortishead (single LP pressing) ... LP
Go Beat (UK), 1997. Very Good ... $24.99
The second Portishead LP, even spookier and darker than the first, but still with an infectious groove running underneath. Strings, brass and cinematic guitar all coalesce under Beth Gibbons for the signature unsettling Portishead sound. Eleven tracks in all, including "Cowboys", "All Mine", "Mourning Air", "Only You" and "Elysium". LP, Vinyl record album

Run-DMCRaising Hell ... LP
Profile, 1986. Very Good+ ... $24.99
The massive third album from Run DMC – made at the top of their game – an pivotal effort that brought them to peak popularity and helped break hip hop in a huge way in the pop culture landscape! Part of the album's strength is its guitar-heavy sound on some of the grooves – produced by Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons with a classic early Def Jam vibe, in the same manner that helped the Beastie Boys get their records in the hands of folks who'd never buy hip hop otherwise! That sound comes to culmination on the album's hit collaboration with Aerosmith on a remake of "Walk This Way", resulting in the commercial breakthrough, but the real triumph here is the increased complexity in both the lyricism, and the way Jam Master Jay serves up their beats – which makes for a stone classic all the way through, on tracks that include "Peter Piper", "It's Tricky", "My Adidas", "Proud To Be Black", "You Be Illin'", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jan & DeanPopsicle ... LP
Liberty, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little later album from Jan & Dean – issued just a bit after Jan's legendary car crash, and done with a sound that has a bit more darkness than before! The pair are still very much in surf/hot rod rocking grooves here – a mode that many other groups (most notably The Beach Boys) had shed by the time – but although a bit dated by 1966, the sound also comes off with a slight ironic twist here – not entirely in the left-field use of older modes done by Zappa in the late 60s, but also not that different either! Themes of the tunes are often odd, and not nearly a sweet before – unresolved, unfocused, and offbeat – and even though the guitars are strummed in conventional rockish mode, there's certainly something unsettling happening in the background. Titles include "Surf Route 101", "One Piece Topless Bathing Suit", "The Restless Surfer", "Popsicle", "She's My Summer Girl", "Summer Means Fun", and "A Surfer's Dream". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has light wear.)
