NWAStraight Outta Compton (picture disc) ... LP
Priority, 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $31.99 35.98
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- ... $16.99
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.

✨✧ Kendrick LamarTo Pimp A Butterfly ... CD
Interscope, 2015. New Copy ... $17.99 18.98
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.

✨✧ Eazy-EEazy-Duz-It (with bonus tracks) ... CD
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 (Eminem is Humpty Hump in comparison), 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", and "We Want Eazy", and the full 5150 Home 4 Tha Sick EP as bonus cuts. Remastered for the first time since the original release. CD

✨✧ LAMPShades Of Green ... CD
Peng (UK), 2013. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet collaboration from Lamp – a duo that features Andy Compton of The Rurals, and singer Ladybird – who's worked before with Soldiers Of Twilight and Llorca! Ladybird's got this sweetly slinky style of singing – and Compton's grooves here are a bit more laidback than with The Rurals – less house in the rhythms at times, and a bit more jazz funk – but of the smooth variety that really works perfectly with the lyrics! Some of The Rurals join in for backing, giving the record a solid groove that definitely holds up to the Compton legacy – and titles include "My People", "Love The Love", "Only You Know", "Fly Baby Fly", "Sun & The Moon", "Springtime", and "Your Fortune".

✨✧ PrinceBlack Album ... LP
Warner, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Recorded in 1987, but never officially released until 1994, when Prince was trying to get out of his Warners contract. Prince's attempt to return to his more funky side after flirting with more straight pop songs was a Holy Grail amongst collectors for a time, and though we don't like it as much as his first couple of albums, there are more than a few good moments on here, and it certainly stands up better than most of what came after. 8 songs: "Le Grind", "Cindy C", "Dead On It", "When 2 R In Love", "Bob George", "Superfunkycalifragisexy", "2 Nigs United 4 West Compton" and "Rockhard In A Funky Place". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CoupKill My Landlord (2LP version) ... LP
Wild Pitch, 1993. Used 2LP ... 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. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ NWAEfil4zaggin ... LP
Priority, 1991. Used ... 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
(Original pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

Ruthless, 1988. Used ... Out Of Stock
What can we say? Just try to imagine what hip hop would be like today if this record never existed.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.
