IndeepLast Night A DJ Saved My Life ... LP
Sound Of New York, 1983. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Indeep are best known for the title single of this one – as "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life" still plays large for all of us, a bit hokey, to be sure, but with a great old school beat and some great guitar bits! This is the full album built around that single, and it's got some similar sounding tunes with a groove that's not too bad. Plus, you get to see what the band looks like on the cover – and trust us, they look terrible! Titles include "Buffalo Bill", "Love Is Like A Gun", "Slow Down", "Lipstick Politics", and "When Boys Talk". LP, Vinyl record album

New RamonesRamones ... LP
Sire, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
As great of a rock & roll album as there's ever been! 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. 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". LP, Vinyl record album

New Skinny BoysWeightless ... LP
Warlock, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first and best album by the ever slept-on Skinny Boys – recorded for Warlock with a raw, gritty sound! Weightless is a far more terse effort than the Boys ever recorded for Jive later on. It's actually one of the harder-hitting records we can think of on Warlock – a trait we love! Jock's human beat box is as prevalent and forceful as the rhymes, beats and scratches. Funky fresh hip hop that's very much of the era, but still a great listen now and forever! Tracks include "Jock Box", "Unity", "Get Funky", "Weightless", "Ill", "Feed Us The Beat", "Awesome", "Rip The Cut" and "Skinny Boys". LP, Vinyl record album

New NYC Peech BoysLife Is Something Special ... LP
Island, 1983. Very Good ... $6.99
One of the biggest moments of the New York club scene of the early 80s! The Peech Boys cut their teeth at the Paradise Garage during the classic Larry Levan years – and this album has them working with Levan to forge a record of crossover club grooves filled with linn drum beats and DMX riffing – all produced with a warmly soulful vibe that's classic Levan all the way through! The album's got a groove that mixes together bits of electro street soul with fuller, richer rhythms that are almost a precursor some of the mainstream house of years to come. Titles include a version of the group's classic "Don't Make Me Wait", plus the cuts "Love Kills Pain On Contact", "Life Is Something Special", and "On A Journey". Keith Haring cover, lots of positive vibes, and a lot easier to take seriously than the Village People! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a split top seam.)

New AtmosphereOvercast EP ... LP
Rhymesayers, 1997. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Definitely up there with the best of 1997, this 8 track ep starts off with the amazing "Scapegoat", an interesting look at blaming the world, where Slug runs through a list of things that are causing strife in life. "Primer" has hilarious and insightful verses from the perspective of the dead-end life of a white trash trailer park resident beating up on his wife/baby mother with the chorus "I own the Camaro and the mobile home, so where you gonna go." "Multiples" is another highlight, a dedication to underground MC's, b-boys, graffiti writers, and DJs. Quality mid-west hiphop from the indie heydays. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing in the stickered sleeve, with BPM stickers.)

New Kanye WestCollege Dropout – Radio Album Advance ... 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 the 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.
