✨✧ J-LiveAll Of The Above ... LP
Coup D'Etat, 2002. Very Good 2LP ... $11.99
Nothing fancy – just a way too long in the making, straight up hip hop record from J-Live, a record that cares a whole lot about the words for a change. J-Live seems to have scrapped whatever crossover ambitions he may have had a few years ago in his bungled major label nightmare, and clearly does what he does because he loves it. In a way this record would sit well next to Large Professor's even more regrettably delayed 1st Class in your collection – both have an unpretentious early 90s feel – LP's with that era's turgid production aesthetic, and J-Live with the scope, flow, and mindset of a Native Tongue. Tracks include "First Thing First", "How Real It Is", "MCee", "Once For The Griot", "Nights Like This", "Travelling","All Of The Above", "All In Together Now" and more. Here's a plus – as far as we can tell, J-Live is the only MC on this record – and a singular vision just doesn't happen often enough these days, does it? LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the insert. Cover has some wear along the opening.)

Brian ColemanCheck The Technique Vol 2 – More Liner Notes For Hip Hop Junkies (paperback) ... Book
Wax Facts Press, 2014. New Copy ... $19.99 27.98
Golden age of hip hop historian Brian Coleman's second Check The Technique tome – the in-depth stories behind some of the greatest records of the 80s and early 90s – an even greater collection than the first volume! Coleman's approach is straight-forward and direct – chronicling a choice selection of 25 bonafide classic albums, breaking them down track-by-track, peppered by interviews with the artists, producers and other principle personalities behind the work, for the most honest histories that Coleman can get. Volume 2 uses a broader time frame than the previous collection, going as far back as 1981's Wild Style Breakbeats, and as recent as the late 90s for Mos Def & Talib Kweli's Black Star and The Coup's Steal This Album. Other records discussioned include The Cactus Album by 3rd Bass, A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing by Black Sheep, The Sun Rises In The East by Jeru The Damaja, Mantronix The Album, Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Links, Stetsasonic In Full Gear, Stunts, Blunts & Hip Hop by Diamond & The Psychotic Neurotics and more. Like the author's Check The Technique Vol 1 and Rakim Told Me, it's vital hip hop history, breezily readable and engrossing as can be. 525 paperback pages, and each chapter includes photos of the artists, the records and associated singles, and other choice historical tidbits. Essential! Book

✨✧ Danger DoomMouse And The Mask (Metalface Version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Lex, 2005. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
You guessed it. Danger Mouse and MF Doom together – and also a collaboration with the writers and voice talent of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block of programming circa the mid 00s – so the dangerous duo make room for appearances by Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Space Ghost, Brak, Zorak, Harvey Birdman, the Sealab 2021 team and the Mooninites – plus live action characters Ghostface, Talib Kweli and Cee-Lo. Basically, you can look at the project as a crass, college age market research driven coup and an affront to classic hip hop – OR you can look at it as sorta less pretentious Gorillaz. We're rollin with the latter, and it's a helluva lot more fun, too!! DM's and Doom's styles compliment each other as well as Doom's and Madlib's – and the participation of Adult Swim makes this one of the few hip hop albums in which you actually look forward to the skits! One question, though. Where is Schoolly D? Tracks include "Sofa King", "ATHF", Mince Meat", "Old School" feat Talib Kweli, "Bizzy Box" feat Cee-Lo, "Space Hos" and more. Includes bonus tracks from the Occult Hymn EP and 2 unreleased tracks. 23 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ VariousCosmic Machine The Sequel – A Voyage Across French Cosmic & Electronic Avantgarde ... CD
Because (France), 1970s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet electronic sounds from 70s France – pulled from a range of sources that include disco records, prog rock sets, sound library sessions, and even film soundtracks – all served up with a very cool, very cosmic sort of vibe! The French scene took its electronics differently than some of the other European scenes of the period – and often mixed in bits of keyboards or moog with more conventional instrumentation – or sometimes worked in an all-electronic mode, but with a warmth that was different than the colder sounds to come in the post-punk years! As a result, the music here is surprisingly soulful at times, and often nice and funky – while still having some of the edgier modes you might expect from soundtracks or spacier records of the period. The range of talents here is wonderful – and this second volume in the series might be even more revelatory than the first – with tracks that include "Young Freedom" by Francis Lai, "Mouvement Decompose D'Un Coup De Marteau" by Pascal Comelade, "Moonshine" by Stereo, "Cristal No 3" by Moon Birds, "Indian Love Melody" by Georges Rodi, "Grand Prix" by Grand Prix, "Vadrouillard 3" by Roger Roger, "Main Theme From More" by Rosebud, "Signaux Codes Non Identifes" by Michel Magne, "Love Is All" by Pierre Porte, "Pepper Box" by The Peppers, "Ruitor" by Richard Pinhas, "Monkey Star" by Arpady's, "Les Soucoupes Volantes Vertes" by Heldon, and "Take A Chance (rmx inst)" by Queen Samantha.

✨✧ Pat ThomasComing Home – Original Ghanaian Highlife & Afrobeat Classics 1967 to 1981 ... CD
Strut (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A double-length look at the music of Pat Thomas – a key figure on the scene in Ghana during the 70s, heard here in a variety of settings and styles! The range of sounds promised in the title definitely rings true – as the music starts with early jazzy highlife, then moves through 70s Afro Funk – but Thomas was also always a forward-thinking artist, and some of the final sounds here almost preface changes to come for African artists on the global scene – modes that showcase Pat's work on the European scene after the late 70s coup in Ghana. The vocals are great – as deeply expressive as the rhythms are powerful – and the package features collaborations with Ebo Taylor, work with the famous group Maritata, solo projects, and tracks by the Sweet Beans, Broadway Dance Band, and Ogyatanaa Show Band. Titles include "Super Yaa Amponsah", "Merebre", "Eye Colo", "Yamona", "I Need More", "Who's Free", "Mpaebo", "Revolution", "We Are Coming Home", "Set Me Free", "No Money No Love", "Sack The Devils", "Ma Huno", and "Gyae Su".

✨✧ Medallions Featuring Vernon GreenSpeedin' ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful west coast vocal group work from Vernon Green & The Medallions – a group who were rooted in doo wop, but who also step out here with a sound that paves the way for plenty of soul as well! There was something different about some of these great LA groups from the 50s – a quality that was often tighter than some of the more street corner work of the east coast – a sensibility that really comes through in vocals like this, which seem to be striving even further for a powerful punch in the overall package! Green's lead really gives the harmonies something to focus around – and the tracks are a great mix of playful numbers and more heartbreaking tunes – with titles that include "Shedding Tears For You", "Unseen", "Give Me The Right", "Dear Darling", "59 Volvo", "Buick 59", "Coup De Ville Baby", "Push Button Automobile", "Rocket Ship", "The Telegram", and "I Wonder Wonder Wonder".

✨✧ Neal HeftiOdd Couple ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
The genius of Neal Hefti comes through for us again! Have you ever stopped to listen to the Odd Couple theme? Really listen to it – break it apart with your ears, and let the strange and complex nature of the groove sink into your brain? It's mad stuff, we tell you – one of the most genius moments ever in 60s scoring! This soundtrack features a few versions of Hefti's amazing tune – including one stunning vocal version, with very strange lyrics about Oscar and Felix that almost seem to "out" them as a real couple! The record mixes music from the film with snippets of dialogue – and titles include "Clean Poker", "The Odd Couple", "End Title", "Curse Of The Cat People", "Dirty Poker", "Metropole", and "Down With The Lights".

Shanachie, 2014. Used ... $9.99
Always-great work from Kindred The Family Soul – the unassuming duo who've really kept things strong over the years – and who always win us over with records like this! The pair sing together wonderfully – with a vibe that's rooted in spiritual modes, but turned towards very positive secular soul – and the backings follow most of the same modes Kindred first explored on Hidden Beach years back – a midtempo groove that really opens up the vocal flow. Titles include "Call Me Crazy", "Everybody's Hustling", "Loving The Night", "A Couple Friends", "One Day Soon", "Here We Go", "Drop The Bomb", and "Get It Got It". CD

✨✧ Tony Randall & Jack KlugmanOdd Couple Sings ... LP
Phase 4/London, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Terrible! But pretty darn wonderful, too – at least if you dig The Odd Couple! Considering their roots in Broadway, Randall and Klugman should be pretty decent singers – but instead, they decide to camp it up for this one, as they spend a lot of time arguing about and during sweet old-fashioned tunes like "The Inch Worm", "Johnny One Note", "Brush Up Your Shakespeare", and "Together Wherever We Go" – plus a very groovy version of "You're So Vain". The record also features the extended "Odd Couple Opera", the track "Friendship', and "Applause, Applause". Arrangements by Brit Roland Shaw – probably because nobody in America would touch the record, and an Englishman like Shaw hadn't heard of the show yet! In a great gatefold cover, too.

Mose AllisonMose Allison (Back Country Suite/Local Color) ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
Two early, rootsy Mose Allison sides, brought together by Milestone/Prestige in the 70s for this repackage. Most of this set is instrumental bluesy piano trio numbers, but Mose busts out with some vocals and even a spot of trumpet on a couple numbers, including an early version of his signature tune "Parchman Farm", plus "Lost Mind", "Blues", "Trouble In Mind" and "One Room Country Shack". He's joined by Addison Farmer or Taylor LaFargue on bass, and either Frank Isola or Nick Stabulas on drums, and the instrumental sides include "Blueberry Hill", the side long "Black Country Suite", "In Shalah", "I'll Never Be Free" and "Ain't You A Mess".

Aloe BlaccGood Things ... LP
Stones Throw, 2010. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 17.98
Cinematic soul rooted in the rawer organ, drums and horns vibes that resonated deeply in records from north to south in the 70s – done with a lean, tight and head nodding groove no doubt informed by Aloe Blacc's own roots in hip hop – on his best album yet and one of best raw soul styled albums ever to come from our friends at Stones Throw! Good Things is a giant leap ahead of Shine Through, Aloe's previous full length on the label. We loved that record for its gritty, unique approach to funky soul, but, Good Things reaches for the heights of Aloe's heroes from Donny Hathaway to Marvin Gaye – and comes closer than we could have imagined! It's produced by the Truth & Soul team, with a timeless funk & soul vibe comparable to their work with the great Lee Fields. We have a feeling we'll still be listening to this album 10-15-20 years from now. Essential! Titles include the underground breakout "I Need A Dollar", an incredible cover of The Velvet Underground's "Femme Fatale" (we must have dropped the needle on that 50 times in the first couple days we had it), "Green Lights", "Miss Fortune", "Good Things", "Loving You Is Killing Me", "Mama Hold My Hand", "Hey Brother" and more.

Ali Ag AmoumineTakamba ... LP
Sahel Sounds/Mississippi, 2011. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A really wonderful document of of the Takamba style of music in Northern Mali and Niger – passionate, energetic and hypnotically performed by Ali Ag Amoumine! Ali's home is in Timbouctou, a couple hundred kilometers upriver from the Takamba region, and it was here that this excellent recording by Christopher Kirkley took place. It's essentially traditional regional guitar music, electrified and played in droning, wholly entrancing patterns, while the rhythm is played on the calabash. The songs here are described as being informed by Ali's travels and including his own compositions, and it does have inimately personal feel, while also pulling us in strictly on the basis of the soaring, hypnotic sounds. Includes "Adernibah", "Khomeissa", "Fatimatou", "Damara", "Kalitay", "Hali Diallo", "Taliat Nouhirase", "Nouvelle Annee" and "Mali". LP, Vinyl record album

BadbadnotgoodIV ... CD
Innovative Leisure, 2016. Used ... $7.99
Badbadnotgood have always been pretty damn great, actually – and never better than on album IV – a remarkable step forward for the group! As ever, they take inspiration from some of the best prog, jazz, funk (and proggy jazz funk...they blend) of the 70s and beyond, but weave it into fairly distinctive and genuinely fun modern sound. It's built to last, too –we're sure be able to come back to their work in a couple decades and it'll still work! IV finds them with the confidence to trade in some fairly subtle, smoothed out moments between to more boisterous ones, and they're more dexterous in the instrumentation – especially in the horns, keys and percussion – but some great vibes, strings, flute and more when the mood calls. Includes the great vocal track "Time Moves Slow" with Sam Herring of Future Islands, "And That, Too", "Lavender", "IV", "Chompy's Paradise", "Structure No. 3", "Cashmere", "Hyssops Of Love" and more.

Rare early single from Italian singer-songwriter Franco Battiato – and in a melodic, sprawling psych pop style – with is something of a surprise given his more out there experimentation on later recordings! Both tracks start out with a fairly intimate sound, but build in atmosphere as they go, with nice string arrangements and passionate vocals. A great couple of tunes! 7-inch, Vinyl record

The return of avant pop/hip hop-inspired, playful and fun Beck after the stunning turn into melancholy and more baroque pop sound of Sea Change a couple years prior – working once again with The Dust Brothers! To Beck's credit, Guero doesn't sound so much like a throwback to "classic Beck" as much the next step forward, and it's a solid one full of memorable songs, oddball rap-inspired vocals, catchy choruses and freewheeling production. Titles include "E-Pro", "Girl", "Black Tambourine", "Scarecrow", "Go It Alone", "Farewell Ride", "Rental Call", "Emergency Exit" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
