✨✧ NWAStraight Outta Compton ... LP
Priority, 1988. Used ... Temporarily 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
(Original pressing. Cover has some wear.)

One of Tim Dog's best tracks, dissing NWA & other west coast MC's, over over hard Ultra-style beats and a sample from ESG's "UFO". 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Compton's Most WantedIt's A Compton Thang ... CD
Orpheus/Universal (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Pivotal west coast rap from Compton's Most Wanted! NWA cast such a long shadow in the late 80s, especially in the nascent gangsta rap and G Funk scenes, it was tough for top shelf peers and followers to get their due, but CMW deliver the goods and this record stands the test of time! Production by LA old school-er the Unknown DJ and CMW's DJ Slip give this set a nice stripped down west coast sound, with MC Eiht holding up his own end of things (and taking up the slack for the Chill MC) on the mic. 11 tracks in all, including "It's A Compton Thang", "One Time Gaffled Em", "This Is Compton", "Late Night Hype", "Duck Sick", "I'm Wit Dat" and "Rhymes Too Funky Pt 1 (Live at Lonzo's 1988)".

✨✧ Dr DreCompton ... CD
Interscope/Aftermath, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Dr Dre's first proper album in 15+ years, and you just know he wouldn't even bother if didn't have something solid to put there, right? Sky high expectations aside, it's a damn strong effort. Dre is in ringmaster and super-producer mode here, bringing in a diverse roster of vocal players and doing his distinctive thing behind the scenes a lot the time. Compton hardly ever directly retreads on the sounds of his past, which makes it all the more remarkable, because you KNOW this is a Dr. Dre record even if it doesn't sound exactly like his past work. Includes "Talk About It" feat King Mez & Justus, "Genocide" with Kendrick Lamar, Marsha Ambrosius * Candice Pillay, "It's All On Me" feat Justus & BJ The Chicago Kid, "One Shot One Kill" feat Jon Connor & Snoop, "Satisfaction" feat Snoop, Marsha Abrosius & King Mez, "Medicine Man" feat Eminem, Candice Pillay & Anderson .Paak, "Issues" feat Ice Cube, Anderson .Paak & Dem Jointz and more.

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 (limited 3-D lenticular cover) ... LP
Ruthless, 1991. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 29.98
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. LP, Vinyl record album
(In a 3D lenticular sleeve.)

Warner, 1991. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
The movie that set the stage for all the 'hood' films of the past decade, reintroduced the world to Compton, and made Ice Cube and Cuba Gooding household names.

Toni! Tony!, Monie Love, Tevin Campbell. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eazy-EEazy-Duz-It ... LP
Ruthless/Priority, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Eazy's first and best LP, from back when he was trying to kid everyone that he was still a teenager. As we all know, Eazy Duz It is a lot more of a companion piece to Straight Outta Compton than a standout solo album by Eazy E, with most the writing credits going to almost everyone involved with NWA EXCEPT Eazy. We all also know that that is a good thing, as the puckish MC was a much better mouthpiece than he was a great thinker. As an instrument of helium voiced anger and bile spewing, Eazy was pretty hard to top in those days, and those tight, propulsive beats Dre and co. conjured up in the late 80s will keep our lowriders bouncing until the end of time. Truly a conceptual masterpiece, whether you're comfortable with that or not. Includes "Radio", "Eazy Duz It", "Boyz In The Hood", "Eazy-er Said Than Dunn", "2 Hard Mutha's", "Nobody Move", "Still Talkin'", "I'mma Break It Down" and "We Want Eazy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kendrick LamarTo Pimp A Butterfly ... CD
Interscope, 2015. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

Priority/Capitol, 1992. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Eazy-E's wildly comic Compton riff on Christmas music – if ever you doubted his ear for satire and took his violent, profane street rap purely at face value, here's a pretty clear indication that he wasn't so deadly serious all the time! Rudy Ray Moore serves up an intro as Uncle Dolemite. Guests include Menajahtwa, Buckwheat and Will 1X of Atban Klann – later to be known as Will I Am of Black Eyed Peas (!!!). 7-inch, Vinyl record

Outburst/Universal (Japan), 1995. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Strong stuff from BG Knocc Out & Dresta – Eazy E proteges from the early-to-mid 90s west coast gangsta rap boom! They don't reinvent the wheel on Real Brothas, but "real" it certainly is – and a solid, nowadays under-acknowledged standout from the era. The rhyme skills are top notch – flowing as strongly as their more legendary Compton peers – on titles that include "Everyday All Day", "Jealousy", "Whose The G", "Life's A Puzzle", "Micc Checc", "Compton & Watts", "Do Or Die", "Take A Ride", "50/50 Love", "Real Brothas", Down Goes Anotha N***a" and more. 15 tracks in all. CD
