✨✧ SerengetiDennehy (plus Beautyman EP – on colored vinyl) ... LP
Fake Four Inc, 2006/2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Serengeti's should-be legendary Dennehy – one of the smartest, funniest and (still!) freshest indie rap LPs of the first decade of the 00s! Firstly, it's made up of sharply-focused, sometimes hilarious, always hyper-intelligent rhymes – both satirizing and celebrating working class Chicago neighborhood personalities – over solid beats and production. Our favorite (of several) distinctive personalities Serengeti adopts is Kenny – quintessential southsider with a deez-and-doze delivery and a propensity to wheeze neighborhood institutions with a dead on precision that you might not fully appreciate if you haven't lived south of 26th St – but there's much to love for anyone who digs unique, lyrically-centered hip hop. The set features production by Midas Wells, DJ Crucial, Emynd and others – cats who find ways to match strong beats to eccentric rhymes about Brian Dennehy, the movie Critters, Chicago weatherman Tom Skilling, VHS era movie hero Tom Berenger, Minute Rice, Joey Cora (and other non-Cubbie Chicago sports figures you've probably never heard of), naval-gazing emo kids, non-alcoholic beer and heavenly neighborhood food dive Ricobene's. A leftfield hip hop masterpiece! Tracks include "Critters", "Feeding", "In's And Out's", "Dennehy", "Ipod", "Lineage", "Meth", "Love You But", "Derek", "Go Paint", New Dodge", "Derek In Paris", "The Neeg", "Ozzie Guillen" and "New Dodge". First ever vinyl version – with the bonus, previously unreleased Beautyman EP! LP, Vinyl record album
(A Chicago indie hip hop classic on vinyl for the first time ever – with "cloudy transparent & opaque black" vinyl.)

✨✧ VariousWarner Soft Rock Nuggets Vol 2 – It's A Happening World ... CD
Warner (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There's nothing "soft" about the nuggets in this great little collection – as all the tracks here are the cream of the crop of the late 60s pop scene in the US – not super-huge hits, but instead some overlooked gems that definitely warrant the "nuggets" in the title! Most of the work here is from the Warner/Atlantic catalog – but there's also some nice bits from other labels too – and the collection focuses on the warm, breezy, completely sublime sounds that have come to be known as Sunshine Pop over the years – music that's well-produced, but very personal too – and which often has a quality that's a bit deeper than the usual oldies radio material from the time. As usual with most Japanese collections we love so much, the track selection is ultra-hip, and also includes some rare 45-only titles – with two dozen tracks in all, a good number of which we might not have heard otherwise. Titles on this second volume include "It's A Natural Thing" by The Congregation, "No One Was There" by The Gates Of Eden, "Hung Up On Love" by The Other Voices, "Tell Someone You Love Them" by Dino Desi & Billy, "Beverly Hills" by Uncle Sound, "Many Are The Times" by Lee Mallory, "I Believe In Her" by The Tradewinds, "All" by James Darren, "Love In" by The Morning Glories, "My World Fell Down" by Sagittarius, "Happy" by Blades Of Grass, "If You Know What I Mean" by The Gas Company, "Don't Let The Rain Fall Down On Me" by The Critters, "Me Japanese Boy" by Harpers Bizarre, "Time To Love" by The Addrisi Brothers, "Don't Run Away" by Bruce & Terry, "I Could Be So Good To You" by Don & The Goodtimers, and "Will You Be Staying After Sunday" by Peppermint Rainbow.
