✨✧ NWAStraight Outta Compton (picture disc) ... LP
Priority, 1988. New Copy (reissue)... 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

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".

Polygram, 1990. Near Mint- ... $13.99
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.

✨✧ Wax PoeticsIssue #44 – October/November 2010 ... Magazine
Wax Poetics, 2010. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Wax Poetics has dual cover stars – Southern California soul & funk legends War on the front and the great Syl Johnson on the back! The eclectic Cali funk, soul, rhythm collective is nicely featured by Wax Po, in a story that's also a bit of a reflection on what life was like in Compton & Long Beach when the players were coming up there. Syl Johnson is interviewed in one of the best Syl articles we've seen in a 2010 – pretty much The Year Of Syl Johnson, in which he's thankfully getting the widespread props he's long deserved. This issue also has pieces on The Budos Band, Chris Clark, Melvin Davis, Johnny Colon, Al Cooper, Lonnie Jordan, Claus Ogerman, Record Rundown with DJ Muggs, the always great RE:Discovery section and more!

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Simon HarrisBeats, Breaks & Scratches Vol 4 ... LP
Music Of Life (UK), 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
14 different beats and a track of vocal stab for scratching, all produced by Simon Harris, so it has a very 80s feel to it. One of the original "DJ Tool" or battle records. Titles include "Heavy Loop", "Dopin Drums", "Mardi Gras", "Hold Tight", "Impeach!", "Compton Loop" and "Samurai Beats". LP, Vinyl record album

Ruthless/Priority, 1988. Used (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
The foundation of the sound that would rule hip hop throughout the 90s. Nice production from Dre, back when he was dropping more funk-sample based tracks, and plenty of attitude on the mic from Cube, Eazy and Ren. Off the Straight Outta Compton LP. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ BG Knocc Out & DrestaReal Brothas ... CD
Outburst/Universal (Japan), 1995. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A strong, consistent and nowadays under-acknowledged standout in the early-to-mid 90s west coast gangsta rap boom from Eazy E proteges BG Knocc Out & Dresta! They don't reinvent the wheel on Real Brothas, but it really is a solid snapshot of the sound and the era – and the rhyme skills are top notch – flowing as strongly as their more legendary Compton peers. Includes "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.

✨✧ NWAEfil4zaggin (limited 3-D lenticular cover) ... LP
Ruthless, 1991. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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.)
