DG ComptonContinuous Katherine Mortenhoe ... Book
New York Review Of Books, 1974. New Copy ... $4.99 15.95
Katherine Mortenhoe has only a week to live – quite a surprise in a world of the future where nobody ever dies from illness – which makes her case unique enough to warrant its feature on a televised reality show! The story was penned in the 70s – by a speculative fiction writer who was a contemporary of Philip K Dick and JB Ballard – and who, like them, was as much a poet of anxiety as he was a spinner of tales – in this case, contemporary worries both about illness and perception, which are intertwined in the week-long narrative of the book. A subtle book, almost lost at the time – not quite sci fi, but not far off – finally getting larger presentation in this great edition with an introduction by Jeff Vendermeer. 251 pages, softcover. Book
(Spine has a small remainder mark.)

✨✧ Kendrick LamarTo Pimp A Butterfly ... LP
Interscope, 2015. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... 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.

✨✧ NxWorries (Anderson Paak & Knxwledge)Link Up & Suede EP ... LP
Stones Throw, 2015. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Debut EP from Anderson.Paak & Knxwledge – teaming up as the duo NxWorries – with hazy hip hop beatcraft by Knxwledge and unique vocals by Anderson.Paak! Paak has a very distinctive voice, fresh from some standout moments on Dr. Dre's Compton record here and (justly) poised for bigger things to come commercially, but this fine EP on Stones Throw is definitely a creative win. Well worth picking up! Includes "Anthrime (Intro)", "Link Up", "DatWhip", "Suede" (vocal and instrumental), "Dntstop" and "Droogs". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ PrinceBlack Album ... CD
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".

✨✧ DJ QuikQuik Is The Name (with download) ... LP
Profile/Legacy, 1991. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
DJ Quik's classic debut – arguably one sturdiest records bridging the first wave of the LA gangsta rap era to the G Funk era of the early-to-mid 90s – and definitely one of the tighter and most focused albums of its kind around that time, when rap records were getting largely getting a little too padded with skits and filler. This one's lean and mean and really earns it's slow-building critical legacy. With "Sweet Black P***y", "Born & Raised In Compton", "Tha Bombudd", "Quik Is The Name", "Loked Out Hood", "Quik's Groove", "Tear It Off", "I Got That Feelin'" and "Skanless". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousCash-A-Likes – Men In Black Who Walked The Line – From The 1950s & 1960s ... LP
Southern Routes, Late 50s/1960s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The influence of Johnny Cash was a huge one in American music – not just in country, but in rock as well – especially given that some of Johnny's first important recordings came out on the Sun label from Memphis! Yet while the bigger sides of Cash's influence have been debated often over the years, he also had a huge impact on the underground, too – as you'll hear in this very cool collection of rare 45s that offer up a whole new version of the Johnny Cash sound! That fast-stepping rhythm of the early Sun singles informs most of these cuts – and Johnny's deep-voiced presentation of the lyrics also clearly has its place – as does the weird array of subject matter. But the whole thing is also way more than just a cheap cash-in collection (no pun intended!) – as the album's a fantastic portrait of the country underground that circulated on smaller indie labels, who mostly issued 45s. Titles include "Iron Man" by Bill Compton, "The Battle Of Earl K Long" by Ernie Barton, "Only Fools" by Wes Buchanan, "That's The Way It Goes" by Durwood Daly, "Long Legged Guitar Pickin Man" by Tar Heel Drifters, "Devil Train" by Johnny Doe, "Working All My Life" by Jim Nesbitt, "Lead Guitar Man" by Sammy Julian, "Ridin Fence" by Sleepy Labeef, and "The Cash Song" by Circle K Wranglers.
