✨✧ ClipseLord Willin' ... LP
Star Trak/Arista, 2002. Near Mint- 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
A neo-electro/drug rap/crossover hip hop classic produced by the Neptunes, and the debut LP on their own Star Trak label. Malice and Pusha T are smooth, confident rhymers with some stand-out moments, but the Neptunes are driving this train, much in the way Prince Paul commandeered early De La Soul productions. Like Paul, The Neptunes' fingerprints are evident on just about every second of every track, but it doesn't diminish the role of the rappers in the least. This is a true hip hop record from beginning to end, something the 'Tunes had shied away from around the same time with the hard rockin' NERD. Their production style saturated pop music at the time, but this may be the Neptunes first album-length masterpiece. Tracks include "Young Boy", "Ma, I Don't Love Her" featuring Faith Evans, "Ego", "Comedy Central" featuring Fabulous, "Gangsta Lean", "Let's Talk About It" featuring Jermaine Dupri, and more. Includes exclusive "Grindin'" remixes. LP, Vinyl record album

ClipseLord Willin' (CLEAN) ... CD
Star Trak/Arista, 2002. Used ... $0.99
The first Clipse album to see release – and a neo-electro/drug rap/crossover hip hop masterpiece produced by the Neptunes – the debut LP on their own Star Trak label. Malice and Pusha T arrive as smooth, confident rhymers with plenty of standout moments, while the Neptunes reach an early production peak. The Neptunes' fingerprints are evident on just about every second of every track, but it doesn't diminish the role of the rappers in the least. This is a true hip hop record from beginning to end, something the 'tunes had shied away from around the same time with the hard rockin' NERD and their more pop-oriented productions. We thought from the first needle drop that this was a record we'd be able to come back to for years and years and years, and that indeed holds true! Tracks include "Young Boy", "Ma, I Don't Love Her" featuring Faith Evans, "Ego", "Comedy Central" featuring Fabulous, "Gangsta Lean", "Let's Talk About It" featuring Jermaine Dupri, and more. CD

ClipseTil The Casket Drops ... LP
Columbia/Get On Down, 2009. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 22.98
Malice & Pusha T back with The Neptunes on the bulk of Til The Casket Drops – recorded Columbi, after the Jive Records swan song/uncompromising masterpiece Hell Hath No Fury back in '06, and this one still head-and-shoulders above most major label hip hop LPs circa '09! The couple of concessions to street rap radio can be forgiven with album tracks that cut as deep as the ones here – with a couple produced by DJ Khalil, and guests including Kanye West, Yo Gotti, Cam'Ron, Ab Liva, Keri Hilson & Nicole Hurst. Titles include "Freedom", "Popular Demand (Popeyes) feat Cam'Ron & Pharrell, "Kinda Like A Big Deal" feat Kanye West, "Showing Out" feat Yo Gotti, "I'm Good" feat Pharrell, "Door Man", "Never Will It Stop" feat Ab Liva, "All Eyes On Me" feat Keri Hilson, "Counseling" feat Nicole Hurst, "Life Change" and more.

DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh PrinceHe's The DJ, I'm The Rapper (with download & bonus album) ... LP
Jive/Zomba, 1988. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of those rare moments where a mainstream hit goes onto preface years of creative talent to come – even though the whole thing might have seemed like a bit of a one-off at the time! The young Will Smith is fantastic as the Fresh Prince – full of charm, at a level that really upped the game for so many other MCs at the time – especially because both his lyrics and his subject matter weren't maybe the most cutting-edge, but could really come over strong, thanks to the inherent stardom in his presentation! We could well argue that Will on the album introduced the whole idea of a crossover hip hop star – one able to do just about anything – but the whole record would be nothing without the creative skills of Jazzy Jeff – who went the complete opposite way after his pairing with Will – more expressive, more experimental – and even more firmly committed to the underground. Yet it was also that easy bridge between underground and fame that made early hip hop albums like this so great – as Jeff brings forward so many great musical moments on titles that include "Live At Union Square", "DJ On The Wheels", "My Buddy", "Rhythm Trax House Party Style", "He's The DJ I'm The Rapper", "Hip Hop Dancers Theme", "Jazzy's In The House", and "Human Video Game".

E-40In A Major Way (with download & bonus album) ... LP
Jive/Legacy, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
A strong early effort from Bay Area legend E-40 – his first with major label backing, stepping up and delivering in a major way – the title tells no lies! True to his roots, his working with Slick Wid' label collaborators both on the mic and in the production booth – including Sam Bostic & Mike Mosley, Studio Ton in the booth and B-Legit and more on the mic – and all-in-all, this is one of E-40's best full lengths. 16 tracks including the intro & outro, with"Da Bumble", "Spittin'", "Sprinkle Me", "Outta Bounds", "Dusted & Disgusted", "Smoke 'n' Drank", "Day Ain't No", "H I Double L", "Bootsee" and "It's All Bad".

Wu-Tang ClanIron Flag (with download & bonus album) ... LP
Loud, 2001. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
An underrated later Wu Tang effort from '01 – a lean 12 track set that lacks little to our ears, except for the then incarcerated ODB. RZA keeps the production solid, tight and simple – rugged, grimy foil for the rhymes, which sound pretty damn nice all these years later – as always the case with prime Wu material. That said it's not without some topical commentary, such as Ghost's unrivaled and unbridled brio in calling out George W. Bush on a record that came out just 3 months after 9/11. Definitely one of the last great Wu Tang Clan albums from the full ensemble. Includes "In The Hood", "Chrome Wheels", "Soul Power (Black Jungle)", the great single "Uzi (Pinky Ring)", "Babies", "Back In The Game" and "Dashing". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gang StarrOwnerz (enhanced CD w/bonus video material) ... CD
Virgin, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Ownerz, indeed. The first Gang Starr full length in 5 years, and only their third in the last decade picks up exactly where Guru and Primo left off. It's Hip Hop 101 from the purists with love to the believers, and a proud, healthy disdain for the pretenders. Premier's production is still everything you'd hope for – he's kicking serious, soulful sample genius even in these days of difficult rights clearance – none of that hot robot $*!t here. Guru and his cast of guest players (Freddie Foxxx, Krumbsnatcha, Fat Joe, M.O.P., Snoop, NYG's, Smiley and others) aren't pulling any punches with the industry knocking – Clipse's "Grindin'" gets redone in a skit as "(Hiney)", and in a guest spot, Jadakiss spits the line "I invest in haze and dope, because currently I'm a slave to (insert rhyming major label here.)" You already know that Gang Starr is probably the longest running, repeatedly successful group in the game, and as much as we'd love for them to be more prolific together, we won't complain as long as their sporadic albums have as many tight moments as Ownerz. Other tracks include "Put Up Or Shut Up" with Krumbsnatcha, "Sabotage", "Peace of Mine", "Deadly Habitz", "Who Got Gunz" with Fat Joe and M.O.P., "Riot Akt", "The Ownerz", "Zonin'", "Same Team, No Games" with NYG'z, the singles "Nice Girl, Wrong Place" & "Skills", and more. The CD is enhanced – featuring live video footage of Gang Starr performing "Skills" and "Full Clip", plus behind-the-scenes footage including interviews and more. CD

✨✧ Pusha TKing Push – Darkest Before Dawn – The Prelude ... LP
Def Jam, 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Former Clipse co-leader Pusha T steps out with really strong sophomore solo effort – and it's certainly some of best material in a decade or so! Tough rhymes, on point top shelf production, and style that wisely avoids current trends, even when he spits rhymes on topical subjects here and there. It's a testament to Pusha's pedigree that he can attract producers as prominent as Kanye, Timbaland, Puff Daddy, Q-Tip and others this long into his career, and the results do not disappoint. Titles include "Untouchable", "MFTR" feat The Dream, "FIFA","Got 'Em Covered" feat Ab-Liva, "Keep Dealing" with Beanie Siegel, "Sunshine" with Jill Scott and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Billy CobhamTotal Eclipse ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Full throttle fusion from Billy Cobham, the kind of stuff we once winced at because of the really over the top moments of heavy, heavy jamming, but that we find ourselves more sympathetic to these days, probably for the more sublime moments that poke through the onslaught here and there, including some nice spacey tracks. The Brecker brothers are up front, and the group has the tight electric approach you'd guess, with some easier grooves sliding in between the full on moments, and even a bit of funk, too. Includes "Solarization", "Lunarputians", "Total Eclipse", "Bandits", "Moon Germs","The Moon Ain't Made Of Green Cheese", "Sea Of tranquility" and "Last Frontier" LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby HutchersonTotal Eclipse ... CD
Blue Note, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A brilliant collaboration between vibist Bobby Hutcherson and reedman Harold Land – the first Blue Note album to feature the talents of the pair together, and a stone classic from the very first note! Hutcherson had already been making big waves for the label with his earlier sides – some avant, some soulful, all great – but adding Land's magical tenor and flute to the mix really opens his sound up a lot, and unlocks a lyrical quality in Bobby's music that really points the way to his flourishing years in the 70s! Yet all is not totally sweet – as both Land and Hutcherson maintain an edginess on the record that makes it more of a progression from the "new thing" years than a break – and pianist Chick Corea is on hand, moving through a very similar path in his own music too. Other players include Reggie Johnson on bass and Joe Chambers on drums – and the tracks are nice and long, with that free-wheeling soulful sound that Land seemed to nicely bring to Hutcherson's playing. Titles include "Herzog", "Same Shame", "Maxtrix", "Total Eclipse", and "Pompeian". CD

Chris BartleySweetest Thing This Side Of Heaven ... LP
Vando, 1967. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A sweet soul classic from late 60s Philly – the one and only album recorded by vocalist Chris Bartley – arranged and produced by Van McCoy! The style's really great – with a host of original tunes by Van that follow nicely in the style of Chris' hit title cut, and which show him off to be quite a well-versed singer. We're not sure why he never made it bigger – but possibly he was so eclipsed by the talents of Van it was hard to get out on his own! Includes the hit title cut – "Sweetest Thing This Side Of Heaven" – plus "Gotta Tell Somebody", "For You", "Sittin Pretty", "Hooked On You", "I'll Be Loving You", and "Sugar Baby".

BigyukiReaching For Chiron ... CD
Likely, 2018. New Copy ... $13.99
Fantastic future soul from Bigyuki – an artist who's got a really far-reaching vision for his music – even though his sound is very stripped down overall! The music here is almost a science fiction take on contemporary soul – with these really wonderful, almost sinister keyboards and basslines – used in electronic flows that are wrapped alongside guest lyrics from Bilal, Chris Turner and others – but which also are more than happy to hang around some beats, and shift in these beautiful instrumental modes! The whole thing is completely unique – immediately contemporary, but with the depth of keyboard work of the past – jazz elements in the mix somewhere, but nice and lean overall. Titles include "Burnt N Turnt", "Pom Pom", "Eclipse", "Simple Like You", "Soft Places", "NuNu", "In A Spiral", "2060 Chiron", "Boom", and "Belong". CD

John ColtraneKulu Se Mama ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
One of our favorite albums ever from John Coltrane – but a record that's sometimes eclipsed by the genius of A Love Supreme! The feel here is very similar to that one – long tracks that introduce a new mode of searching, spiritual jazz for the 60s – one that's performed by a core quintet with Coltrane, McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones – but which also features added players on the side-long title track! "Kulu Se Mama" is a tremendously bold statement in music – one that features a bit of spiritual vocals from Juno Lewis, plus added bass clarinet from Donald Garrett, tenor from Pharoah Sanders, and drums from Frank Butler. The two other tracks – "Vigil" and "Welcome" – are performed by a quartet, but are still equally great! LP, Vinyl record album

Eric DolphyOut There ... CD
New Jazz/OJC, 1960. Used ... $4.99
Eric Dolphy's second album as a leader – and already a bold step forward from the first! The format here changes from the more standard lineup of before – as Dolphy drops out other horn players, loses the piano, and brings the cello of Ron Carter into the frontline! Backing is by the bass of George Duvivier and the drums of Roy Haynes – and the mix of cello and bass creates the freely spirited sound that allows Dolphy to take off on even freer solo flights. The session has a very moody, very dark feel – especially on the tracks where Dolphy is playing B flat and bass clarinet – and titles include "The Baron", "Eclipse", "Sketch Of Melba", "Feathers", and "17 West".

Nedley ElstakNedley Elstak – Trumpeter ... CD
Nederlands Jazz Archief (Netherlands), 1960s. New Copy ... $19.99
Nedly Elstak may not be a household name – and he's certainly not going to win any charm contests with his pose on the cover – but he's a hell of a great trumpeter from the Dutch scene of the 60s, and comes across beautifully here on a collection of rare live material from back in the day! The set's a real revelation to us – as we'd never heard Elstak before – and in addition to these sparkling trumpet lines that lie somewhere between Clifford Brown and Ted Curson – with the warmth of the former, and bite of the latter – Nedly also plays some piano too – an instrument that he really handles wonderfully – with a real range on the keyboard, and this thoughtful depth of sound that really blows us away. Tracks are all live, but really well recorded – and players include Theo Loevendie on alto, Dick Vennik on tenor, Rein de Graaff on piano, and Willem Breuker on bass clarinet – on titles that include great Elstak originals like "Some Astronomers Wonder", "Love You So", "The Machine", "No One Around", "Double Eclipse", and "Beautiful Mountain".

Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A totally fantastic set from the turn of the 70s, and one of Freddie Hubbard's most soulful, spiritual albums ever – a seminal chapter in the evolution of soul jazz – and a record that was a keen inspiration for changes to come on labels like Strata East and Black Jazz! The group here features Kenny Barron on both electric and acoustic piano – really stretching out with a hip, open sort of sound – possibly his first of this type on record – and other players include James Spaulding on alto and flute, Reggie Workman on bass, Louis Hayes on drums, and Patato Valdes on added percussion – giving a more complicated groove to the best numbers. Tunes are all long and well-penned – three by Freddie himself ("Eclipse", "Spacetrack", "Gittin' Down"), one by Kenny Barron ("Black Angel"), and one by Walter Bishop (the original recording of his classic "Coral Keys"!)

Long Hair (Germany), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
The Ikarus on the cover looks like he's already crashing to the ground – but the group itself really soars to the skies – held aloft on a bold wave of fusion and jazzrock – in a style that rivals the best German groups of the time! Instrumentation includes organ, keyboards, reeds, and guitar – all layered together with really powerful bass and drums at the core – moving with more jazz than other progressive groups of the time – some tight combo energy instead of any need for individual solo noodling – even though there are some nice solos too. Vocals are shared by different members of the group, who do a great job of working with the fast jazzy changes of the songs – and titles include "Mesentery", "Eclipse", "The Raven", and "Early Bell's Voice". CD also features the bonus cut "Sunwave". CD

Rita LeeAtras Do Porto Tem Uma Cidade (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A wild solo project from Rita Lee – done after the breakup of Os Mutantes, and offered up almost as some sort of commentary on mainstream rock in the 70s! There's a much more straightforward approach to the music here – a sometimes-glammy sound that's echoed by the band's space-style costumes and makeup – but there's also some weirdly old-style rock instrumentation too, almost like the way that an artist like Gary Glitter could fold the 50s and 70s together in his music, and come across making something very weird and new. Here, the keyboards are almost stronger than the guitars – and Rita herself plays moog, melotron, organ, and piano – on titles that include "Tem Uma Cidade", "Menino Bonito", "Mame Natureza", and "Eclipse Do Cometa".

Charles MingusMingus Revisited (aka Pre-Bird) ... CD
EmArcy/Polygram (Germany), 1960. Used ... $3.99
An unusual chapter in the label-hopping career of Charles Mingus – a one-off date recorded for Mercury right after Mingus' legendary sessions for Columbia! The format here may well be Mingus' most ambitious to date – as the album features larger groups than before, exploring a range of musical ideas that run from Charles' own highly political expressions of the Civil Rights era to some of his landmark explorations of Duke Ellington! As always, the individual players in the group are given a strong voice in the proceedings – and the record bristles with energy from solos by Ted Curson, Eric Dolphy, Booker Ervin, Jimmy Knepper, Yusef Lateef, and a young Joe Farrell – as well as vocal performances by Lorraine Cousins, who sings on the classic "Weird Nightmare" and the haunting "Eclipse". A tremendous record throughout – filled with life, imagination, and boundless creativity – with titles that include "Mingus Fingus no. 2", "Weird Nightmare", "Eclipse", "Bemoanable Lady", "Half Mast Inhibition", and "Prayer for Passive Resistance".

Blue Note, 1964. Used ... $7.99
One of our top 5 favorite Blue Note records of all time – a bold and powerful session from trumpeter Lee Morgan, but one that sat in the vaults for 15 years before release! The session was recorded around the same time as Morgan's hit The Sidewinder (which eclipsed its release at the time) – but it's got the soaring, searching energy of later Morgan work on records like Sixth Sense or Charisma – a whole new groove at the time, and one that's explored perfectly by a group that includes Jackie McLean on alto sax, Curtis Fuller on trombone, McCoy Tyner on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Art Blakey on drums. Modal lines come into play with older hardbop and soul jazz modes – and the result is an explosive batch of tunes that resonate with bold power throughout! Nearly all tunes are incredible originals by Lee Morgan – and titles include "Tom Cat", "Exotique", "Twice Around", and the completely captivating "Rigor Mortis". A treasure, and one not to pass up!

One of Esther Phillips' biggest comeback albums from the 70s – a classic set that takes her deeply soulful vocal approach, and sets it to some sweet jazz funk backings – served up by guitarist Joe Beck, who almost gets equal credit on the album cover! The rest of the lineup is equally great – with alto from David Sanborn, more horns from The Brecker Brothers, and even a bit of work from Steve Khan – all fusion superstars in their own right, but who never eclipse Esther's lead. Titles include a good version of Grover Washington's "Mr Magic" – with the same funky undercurrent as the original – plus the tracks "One Night Affair", "I Can Stand A Little Rain", "Hurtin House", "Turn Around Look At Me", and a semi-hit version of "What A Diff'rence A Day Makes".
