CoupSteal This Album ... CD CD format
Dogday, 1998. Used ... $3.99
The Coup's third and arguably their best album – the late 90s classic Steal This Album! STA is much funkier than some of the later work from Boots and the Funkstress, but with just as sharp of a political vision. Now paired down to a duo, it's a tighter vision, and Boots vivid storytelling and barbed social commentary & satire lead the way over DJ Pam's beats. Includes "The Shipment", "Me And Jesus The Pimp In A 79 Granada Last Night", "20,000 Gun Salute", "Busterismology", "Breathing Apparatus", "The Repo Man Sings For You" featuring a great cameo by Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, and "Underdogs".

New CoupGenocide & Juice ... CD CD format
Wild Pitch, 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Coup's second album for Wild Pitch – and a record that stands as one of Boots & co's best – still one of group's best and tightest LPs and one of the most righteously rebellious political firebombs of the early 90s hip hop scene. The Coup truly broke the mold of what was expected from hip hop, and Wild Pitch Records in particular – defiantly funky hip hop muckraking at its sharpest. 14 tracks, counting the intro and outro, on this LP that was probably too smart for its own good. Includes "Fat Cats, Bigger Fish", "Pimps", "Takin These", "Hip To The Scheme", "Gunsmoke", "The Name Game", "Hard Concrete", "Repo Man" and "Interrogation". CD

New CoupKill My Landlord ... CD CD format
Wild Pitch, 1993. Used ... Temporarily 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. CD

Serge FranklinLe Grande Carnaval/Le Coupe De Sirocco ... CD CD format
Music Box (France), 1979/1983. Used ... $6.99
A warm European soundtrack from Serge Franklin – but one that's also served up with plenty of twists and turns to keep things exciting! The film's got a WWII setting – and Franklin mixes occasional bits of swing and jazz with the fuller orchestrations – which themselves have the evocative quality of a Morricone historical epic – never overdone, but shifting colors and tones in a really beautiful way. A few passages underscore military themes, but with a bit of humor – and titles include "Carnaval Circus", "Le Grand Carnaval", "Leon Et Walter", "Le Testament", "Sweetheart", and "Bolero Du Grand-Pere". The CD also features a handful of tracks from Le Coup De Sirocco – material that's got a similar warm feel as the larger orchestrations on the first soundtrack, but with a few playful moments too – on tracks that include "Sexy Sax Blues", "Narboni & Fils", "Ville D'Alger", and "Hey Baby Foot".

The material was recorded over a period of 20 years, but is linked together well through the sentimentality of Sarde's writing and Tavernier's stories. 20 tracks in all – including "Ce Soir On Fete Munich", "Bal De Nuit", "Paris Jardis Par Jean Rochefort et Jean Pierre Marielle", "La Visite", "Les Oubilettes", and "Je Suis Mort Il Y A Si Longtemps".

PK/Half Moon (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP ... Early March, 2015
The folks at Honest Jon's and PK have done it again! Scoring another reggae reissue coup by digging a little deeper and coming up with the goods: a batch of nice tracks from the 70s and early 80s heyday of the Toronto-based reggae label Half Moon Productions, when it played host to stars like Augustus Pablo, Stranger Cole, Johnny Osbourne and Leroy Sibbles, as well as a handful of lesser known local ringers, too. Producer Oswald Creary and the Super 8 Corporation house band may not exactly be household names to even the most die-hard fan, but then we never really were about household names here at Dusty, and neither are the selectors over at Honest Jon's. Like his contemporary Lloyd Bullwackie Barnes, Creary and crew crafted a batch of heavy, deep modern roots, with the cream collected here, 17 tracks in all: Joe Higgs "Creation", Stranger Cole "Freedom, Justice & Equality", Super 8 Corporation "Freedom Version" and "Free Version", Louis O'Connor "Lonely & Black", Pluggy Satchmo "What Rasta Say" and "23rd Psalm", Rothadam "Sampson", OJ "Things Felt Right", The Blenders "Why Did You Run Away?", Dill Smith "Set Me Free", Stranger Cole & Jah Levi "I'm Living", Bongo Ossie & The Moonlights "Black Society", Johnny Osbourne "Danger In Your Eyes", Bingi Kicks & G.Campbell "Sky Jack", Leroy Sibbles & The Otravis Band "Skyjacking Version" and Carl Dawkins "Luv Is Needed".

Brian ColemanCheck The Technique Vol 2 – More Liner Notes For Hip Hop Junkies (paperback) ... Book Book
Wax Facts Press, 2014. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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.

New Danger DoomMouse And The Mask ... LP LP format
Epitaph, 2005. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
You guessed it. Danger Mouse and MF Doom! The Doom team up albums are bound to fall flat at some point, but it doesn't happen on this one. The album is also a collaboration with the writers and voice talent of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block of programming, so the dangerous duo makes room for appearances by Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Space Ghost, Brak, Zorak, Harvey Birdman, Sealab 2021 and the Mooninites – plus live action characters Ghostface, Talib Kweli and Cee-Lo. Basically, you can look at the project as a crass, college market research driven coup and an affront to classic hip hop – or you can look at it as sort of a less pretentious Gorillaz. We're rollin with the latter, and it's a helluva lot more fun, too! Whatever it is, we love the f**kin' thing! 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. LP, Vinyl record album

Aloe BlaccGood Things ... LP LP format
Stones Throw, 2010. New Copy 2LP ... $15.99 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.

Cat's in the lead on trumpet, getting support from other players on the instrument – including Clark Terry, Ernie Royal, and Ray Copeland – plus Jimmy Cleveland and Frank Rehack on trombone, Earl Warren on alto sax, Jimmy Forrest and Ernie Wilkins on tenor, and Sahib Shihab on baritone. Titles include "Little Man", "Cat's In The Alley", "June Bug", "Adorable D", "Nina", "Birth Of The Blues", and "Blue Jean Beguine". LP, Vinyl record album

A couple of the Bama Lamas also serve as band members for the legendary Andre Williams, if you need any more evidence to their authenticity – and the tracks include "Tell Ya Once", "(Do) The Hurt", "Sugar Snap", "Sambuca", "(Do) The Crab", "Hunger", "Goin' Out", "Hungry Teenage Wolfman", "Monkey Bump", "Ghost Of The Voodoo King", "No More" and more.

Beach BoysFriends ... LP LP format
Capitol, 1968. Very Good- ... $14.99
An under-discovered album from The Beach Boys – and one of our favorite records by the group! The set's kind of a slinking back to the personal, quirky territory of Smile, but with a somewhat more intimate, less-ambitious feel – one that comes off like a tapestry of simple expressions from the group – surprisingly heartfelt at times, fragile at others, and always with a soul-bearing quality that's really wonderful. This one's light years from their surfer pop of a few years before – even a strong maturation from the Pet Sounds set of just two years back – and the harmonies really have the group hitting new strides – hardly a copycat of earlier male group modes, pure harmony heaven for the late 60s! The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Friends", "Transcendental Meditation", "Anna Lee The Healer", "Wake The World", "Meant For You", "Busy Doing Nothin", "Little Bird", "Be Here in the Mornin'", and "Diamond Head". LP, Vinyl record album

It must be said that it feels sharp and fresh and not like the fruition of a long brewing process, with ample space for improvisation along with the trio's impeccable sense of melody. Bishop plays trombone, Roebke is on bass and Rosaly is the drummer – each have played on many a top shelf jazz set the over the past decade or more and work together excellently here.

Flying Dutchman/Boplicity (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
A pair of later jazzy vocal LP gems by Teresa Brewer, both backed by jazz greats – Songs Of Bessie Smith with Count Basie and Thad Jones, and It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing with Duke Ellington – both released by Flying Dutchman in 1973! Teresa's popularity peaked a couple decades earlier as a girlish pop singer, and she succeeds strongly on both records – not just because of the jazz heavies in the band, but because she has the pipes and genuine affection for the material to pull it off. It's lovely stuff! Songs Of Bessie Smith have the bluesy overtones necessary to make it work, without trying the hide Teresa's naturally softer approach. Basie on piano throughout, with arrangements by Jones, and a great big band on half and more intimate arrangements on the other half. It Don't Mean A Thing. . .works just as wel, with Duke Ellington and Ernie Wilkins arrangements, and great Flying Dutchman players that include Bernard Purdie, Joe Beck and Mtume. 20 tracks in all, including "Trombone Cholly", "Gmme A Pigfoot", "I Ain't Got Nobody", "St Louis Blues", "I Ain't Got Nothing But The Blues", "Mood Indigo", "I'm Beginning To See The Light", "I've Got To Be A Rug Cutter", "Tulip Or Turnip", "I'ts Kinda Lonesome Out Tonight" and more.

A little funky, a little jazzy, and a great little record from saxophonist Hugh Brodie – playing here with his excellent Real Thing combo! The record's got a looser feel than other soul jazz sessions of the time – and a style that's straighter jazz one minute, and a bit more soul the next – especially on the tunes that feature vocals from Donna Brodie and other members of the group. Hugh himself plays tenor and soprano sax on the record, and there's almost a vibe here borrowed from Eddie Harris' great early 70s albums on Atlantic – with the same sort of freewheeling approach, coupled with some trippy touches on guitars – which are occasionally processed in weird ways! Titles include "Utopian Chant", "Truthful One", "The Get Down Song", "Cornbread & Beans", "The Real Thing", and "Tippin". LP, Vinyl record album

Bubble PuppyGathering Of Promises ... LP LP format
International Artists, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The lone album from the Bubble Puppy – a monumental effort of late 60s hard grooving psychedelia – and one of very best albums to come out of the original Texas psych scene! A couple of the Pup's labelmates at United Artists get a lot of revelry all these years later, and rightfully so – who would argue the importance of The Red Krayola and 13th Floor Elevators – but Bubbly Puppy deserve to be on that top shelf, too. The sound is tight and hard hitting, with trippy lyricism and groovy group harmonies, while the guitars range from cathartic fuzz to some surprisingly pretty melodicism. Not as far out as some of their peers, but the groove is absolutely killer. Titles include the benchmark single "Hot Smoke And Sasafrass", plus "Todd's Tune", "I've Got To Reach You", "Lonely", "Hurry Sundown", "Elizabeth", "It's Safe To Say", "Beginning" and much more.

Vanguard, 1968. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
Sandy Bull's third album – a pair of long pieces that combine the multicultural folk instrumental experimentation – with Bull playing guitar, bass, bass drum, oud and hand percussion – rolling in a bit more electric blues on one, and meandering psychedelic impulses on the other! The album features 2 sidelong pieces, "No Deposit, No Return Blues" and "Electric Blend" – the both recognizable as Bull's work if you've heard is previous couple of excellent LPs for Vanguard, but actually manage to work in more conventional grooves and more far out experimentation – splitting the difference in that regard. "No Deposit, No Return Blues" does work in some laidback electric blues guitar and spare percussion backing, but tinged with Sandy's Middle Eastern touches, too. "Electric Blend" works in the evolving sprit of his earlier "Blends", with with inspiration from the later 60s psych sounds. CD

The first single from Cherrywine, the project of Ishmael Butler (aka Butterfly) from Digable Planets! "What I'm Talking About" is a lot more about a great hook and a nice, stoned-sounding freestyle rhyme than the heavy title might lead you to believe. "Dazzlement" is a similar groover with a less imposing keyboard part, but a nicely thumping bass line that firmly stands out front. Both tracks have a pretty timeless moody synth groove, one that would have sounded as nice in any club trend of the last couple of decades, and as it probably will a couple decades from now! Cherrywine's nice Bright Black CD never made it to vinyl – but at least the first single found its way to wax! 12-inch, Vinyl record

A funky fusion classic from the 70s – totally great work from Chocolate Jam Company, a hip little group headed up by percussionist Leon Ndugu Chancler! The core sound is soul, but there's plenty of fusion touches as well – thanks to a great lineup of players that includes Oscar Brashear on trumpet, George Duke on keyboards, David T Walker on guitar, and even Dorothy Ashby on harp! Chancler sings lead vocals on most cuts – but he's also joined by Virginia Ayers and Leo Mille on some cuts too – making for a really well-rounded sound that's easily one of the best jazz-into-soul sessions like this from the 70s – almost topping the more famous work from folks like Lenny White or Mtume!

Sony/BGO (UK), 1967/1972. Used 2CD ... $9.99
A great couple of harder-to-find Ornette Coleman records – nicely paired up in a 2CD set! First up is The Music Of Ornette Coleman, from 1967 – which is beautiful record that serves as both a showcase for Ornette's "serious" writing efforts – and his ability to play with a larger ensemble! It kicks off with Ornette playing trumpet solos with The Philadelphia Woodwind Quintet as they perform his "Forms & Sounds" live. That's followed by recordings of Ornette's "Space Flight" and "Saints & Soldiers" performed by The Chamber Symphony of Philadelphia Quartet, a string ensemble that brings a new light to Ornette's compositions! Skies Of America is an ambitious record with full orchestra, in a haunting sound that's light years from any of his smaller group recordings of the 60s and 70s! There's an incredible feel to the strings used here – played by the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by David Measham – all tied up and dark, with swirling sounds that run up beautifully from the bottom, then take off to the skies promised in the title – opening the door for Ornette to come in and solo freely over the top – in a magical mix that easily makes the record a standout in his long and mighty career! Harmolodic theory is definitely a part of Coleman's conception here – but in very different ways than his quartet or quintet recordings. Lots of tracks on this one, including "Skies Of America", "The Men Who Live In The White House", "Sunday In America", "Dreams", "Native Americans", "Silver Screen", "The Artist In America" and more.

Arista, 1979. Very Good ... $0.99
Norman Connors at the top of his game – working here with backing from his own Starship Orchestra, in a groove that's completely funky, deeply soulful, and touched with a fair bit of jazz as well! The album's a great summation of all the sounds that Connors had crafted on previous records with a wider range of players – but really comes into sharp focus here with help from lead vocalist Adaritha – a singer who's got this sublime range that rivals Minnie Riperton on Capitol Records, but which also carries some of the deeper tones of Jean Carn's previous work with Norman. The album's well-balanced between mellow moments and jazzy groovers – all handled with the classic Connors sense of sophistication and class – and titles include the great groover "Be There In The Morning", the slow jamming "Handle Me Gently", plus the tracks "Your Love", "I Have A Dream", "Disco Partido", and "Invitation".
