✨✧ Chairmen Of The BoardGive Me Just A Little More Time ... LP
Invictus, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album of 70s soul – and perhaps the most enduring full LP by this enigmatic harmony group! The vocals of General Crook alone are more than enough to win us over – some of the most distinct lead soul singing we've ever heard, pitched perfectly with the backings of the rest of the group. But the overall package is even better – righteous arrangements that really show the new Holland-Dozier-Holland energy for the 70s – more of a punch than most of Motown a few years before, and open to some headier elements that only serve to do even more with the vocals! Titles include the group's huge hit "Give Me Just A Little More Time", a totally compelling number with a scattershot beat, and some wonderful lead vocals from the always-great General Johnson – plus, their cover of Clarence Carter's "Patches" – which was a big single for them – and the tracks "Bravo Hooray", "Since The Days Of Pigtails & Fairytales", "Come Together", "You've Got Me Dangling on a String" and "Tricked & Trapped". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Pharoahe MonchPTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) ... LP
WAR, 2014. New Copy 2 LPs ... Out Of Stock
Master MC Pharoahe Monch returns! Post Traumatic Stress Disorder appeared just few short years since his previous full length effort, which is a huge boon for we fans of rhyme centric rap. It's damn good to have this cat in the game. PTSD has a fairly loose dystopian sci fi theme/story that's a sometimes metaphorical, some times explicitly laid out struggle for truth and honestly in crooked music business and difficult world in general – like the best kinda/sorta concept albums, the story doesn't get overbearing at any point, and Pharaohe's pen remains as sharp as ever, and his flow as excellent as ever. This one doesn't have the manic, bugged out energy of Internal Affairs, but that's not a knock – we take the more measured, smartly paced approach as a sign of maturity, and an eagarness to avoid repeating himself. Good stuff! Includes "The Recollection Facility", "Losing My Mind", "Heroin Addict", "Damage", "Bad MF", "Rapid Eye Movement" with Black Thought, "Broken Again", "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder", "DREAM" with Talib Kwelie, "Scream", "Eht Dn Arg Noisulli" with Stepkids and more.
