✨✧ NWAStraight Outta Compton (picture disc) ... LP
Priority, 1988. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Benchmark west coast gangsta – and one of the hardest hitting albums of the era in any genre! We're not gonna lie, we played this record to death when it came out – and it still holds up better than most of the material put out by former NWA's, and most of the West Coast sound-alikes that popped up later. For better and for worse, the start of an era – with undeniable strength and a production style that'll never get old! Features "Straight Outta Compton", "Express Yourself", "Dopeman (rmx)", "I Ain't The One", the title track, "Gangsta Gangsta" and the only record ever condemned by the FBI, "F*ck Tha Police" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Burrowes with Mal WaldronLive At The Dreher ... CD
Marge (France), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A tremendous set from Jamaican trumpeter Roy Burrowes – a musician who's never been as recorded as often as he should, which is what makes this lost live set so special! The set was recorded live in Paris at the start of the 80s – with Burrowes on trumpeter, in a group that also features Mal Waldron on piano – at a time when he was doing some really wonderful work on the European scene, at a level that's almost a new wave of spiritualism in his music – which really seems to bring out the best in Roy! Also great is reedman Richard Raux – who plays some soulful tenor and soprano sax that works wonderfully alongside Burrowes – on long titles that include "Old Compton Street", "Seagulls", "Jamaica", "Searching", Going Back Home", "Symphony In Blues", and "Hard Talk".

NWAEfil4zaggin ... CD
Priority, 1991. Used ... $4.99
A stone classic from the west coast scene – and a record that just seems to get better and better over the years! What sounded like a disappointing, and way too calculatedly provocative follow-up to Straight Outta Compton back in 1991 now sounds to us like the peak of Dr. Dre's career as a producer. The wall of sound here is massive – and dare we say it, almost up to par with the Bomb Squad's work with Public Enemy and the expatriate Ice Cube at the time. Plus, with the passing of the years, we can now find a lot more darkly humorous moments in all of the ultra-violent, damn near Clockwork Orange level mischief. Titles include "Real Niggaz Don't Die", "Niggaz 4 Life", "Appetite For Destruction", "Findum, F*ckum, & Flee", and many more. Remastered for the first time, and includes the full 100 Miles & Runnin' EP as bonus cuts. CD

✨✧ Kendrick LamarTo Pimp A Butterfly ... CD
Interscope, 2015. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Kendrick Lamar takes wider creative left turns than ever before on To Pimp A Butterfly – with a funk steeped production style that filters tried-and-true P Funk influences through leftfield modern beatcraft styles, inspired by cats like Madlib to Thundercat, the latter of whom is an official contributor. Fresh material from an increasingly pivotal figure – who may not be revolutionizing the game on the level of the heavy critical praise he's heaped with, but he's certainly marching to his own beat, rather than chasing hits! Includes "Wesley's Theory" with George Clinton & Thundercat, "King Kunta", "These Walls" with Bilal, Anna Wise & Thundercat, "Aright", "For Sale?", "Institutionalized" with a Slick Rick-homage of a guest verse by Snoop Dogg (sign us up for any record that gives props to The Ruler...and extra points for transplanting that style of flow to Compton), "Momma", "Hood Politics", "The Blacker The Berry", "How Much A Dollar Cost" feat James Fauntleroy & Ronald Isley, "Mortal Man" and more.

✨✧ CoupKill My Landlord ... CD
Wild Pitch, 1993. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Boots, E Roc, and Pam the Funkstress bring the hip hop dialectic. From the glory days of revolutionary-Marxist-political rhymes in the early 90's when groups like the Coup and Digable Planets were quoting Mao and Franz Fanon instead of Iceberg Slim or the latest gangster flick. Although it's definitely all about "the cause", it's still good hip hop. And not everything is serious – on the "The Coup", it's funny to hear them they flip the styles from a bunch of NWA and Ice Cube songs (from "Straight Outta Compton" to "Once Upon A Time In The Projects") to tell the tale of an urban revolution. Tracks include "Dig It", "Not Yet Free", "I Know You", "Last Blunt", "Funk", "Fo Da Money", "Foul Play" and more. CD

✨✧ Jackson SistersI Believe In Miracles – The Jackson Sisters Collection ... CD
Universal (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The great mid 70s work of The Jackson Sisters – the Compton-bred sister act with only one official album to their name – but a rich legacy thanks to their wholly unique blend of rollicking soul and amazing harmony vocals! I Believe In Miracles – The Jackson Sisters Collection includes all of the tracks from the 1976 self-titled album – one of the most sought after rare soul LPs of the era – plus it's bookended by the furiously funky single "I Believe In Miracles"! The original version kicks the set off, and the titanic extended version closes it out. The Jackson Sisters were essentially a soul vocal group, but with a style that tended to skew hard and gritty. Occasionally, that grit dipped into full on, furious funk – as on the above mentioned "I Believe In Miracles", and the equally amazing "Miracles". (Similar titles, similar vibe, different songs.) Most of the other tracks have an easier soul sound, with bright harmonies, but the arrangements are still quite raw and hard! Other tracks include "When Your Love Is Gone", "Maybe", "Why Do Fools Fall In Love", "Rockin' On My Porch", "Shake Her Loose", "(Why Can't We Be) More Than Just Friends", "Rock Steady", and "Boy You're Dynamite".

✨✧ Robin HarrisBe-Be's Kids ... LP
Polygram, 1990. Used ... Out Of Stock
We don't need to tell you this album's about ten times funnier than the movie, and sadly the only audio document from one of the funniest black comics of 90s. Hilarious skits like "Gonna Change/Spare Change", "Proud To Be From Compton?", "Dumb A** Police", "Jeri Curl", "Ugly Woman", "Pac Man Game", "Love Faces", "Black Airline", "Why Brothers Drive Cadillacs", "Leave That Coke Alone" and lots more. LP, Vinyl record album
