Hugh MasekelaBoy's Doin' It ... LP
Casablanca, 1975. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A mid 70s effort from Hugh Maskela, recorded in Nigeria, an excellent melding of his jazz inflected pop sound with some deeper soulful grooves. The vibe here is showing both some funk and disco influences, but with trademark South African style melodies floating over top and a dedication to Fela, you know there's some afro beat creeping in too. 6 tracks in all: "The Boys Doin' It", "Mama", "Excuse Me Please", "Ashiko", "In The Jungle" and "A Person Is A Sometime Thing". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Boy's Doin' It ... CD 6.99

✨✧ MountainClimbing ... LP
Windfall, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
Jammin! For heavy guitars and high-stepping vocals, Mountain couldn't be beat – and this early album was one of the group's best! The set kicks off with their stone classic "Mississippi Queen", then rolls into other heavy numbers like "Theme From An Imaginary Western", "To My Friend", "Sittin On A Rainbow", "Boys In The Band", "Sliver Paper", and "Never In My Life" – all served up with great guitars from Leslie West and heavy bass from Felix Pappalardi.

E Richard Sorenson & Six Boys In TroubleStreet & Gangland Rhythms – Beats & Improvisations By Six Boys In Trouble ... LP
Folkways, 1959. Near Mint- ... $49.99
A very unusual record – one that has the Folkways ethnographic team on the streets of New York, recording the songs and calls of "six boys in trouble" as they riff and sing on some rough and raw numbers! The record's an odd turn of the ethnographic ear to the American scene – and in terms of recording style, it's not that different than some of Folkways' percussion albums from Africa and Latin America in the post-war years – especially in the starkness of the recording quality. Most of the music seems to be improvised, and instruments include sticks and bongos – and other tracks feature the boys just singing and shouting, almost in a beat poetry way. Titles include "Bo Diddlie", "One Boy Playing Three Sets Of Bongo Drums With His Hand & One Drum Stick", "Gang Fight", "The Fox", "Money Honey", "I Want Some Food", "Shoe Shine Shakedown", and "Cha Cha Cha".

✨✧ Kanye WestCollege Dropout ... LP
Roc-A-Fella, 2004. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Kanye West finally dropped the full length in early '04 – and it's one of the best hip hop albums of that year. Kanye is probably the hottest beats producer of the year, too, having dug through the greatest soul hooks of the past few decades for his samples, and piled on the chunkiest, catchiest, thickest beats anywhere. And if he doesn't have the greatest vocal delivery in hop hop (if he did, he'd be Superman considering his production pedigree), he makes up for it with some masterful lines, like "I gotta apologize to Mos and Kweli/is it cool to rap about gold if I told the world I copped it from Ghana and Mali?" from "Breath In Breath Out". Hilariously, Kanye also found just about the sharpest theme for a record that we've scene in a while – the tangential connection between gang bangers and frat boys! He ain't granola, he ain't bling bling, he's just a guy from Chicago with a sometimes astoundingly strong production aesthetic, very smart rhymes and a lot of people who owe him great guest spots, and deliver. Were you looking for more than that? It's a triumph, one that Chicago couldn't be more proud of! "We Don't Care", "Graduation Day", "All Falls Down" with Syleena Johnson, "Spaceship" with GLC & Consequence, "Never Let Me Down" with Jay-Z, "Get 'Em High" with Talib Kweli & Common,"New Work Out Plan", the great single "Slow Jamz" with Twista & Jamie Foxx and more. LP, Vinyl record album
