Boogie Down ProductionsGhetto Music: The Blueprint Of Hip Hop ... LP
Jive/Get On Down, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 22.98
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS, perfectly raw beats and overall peak end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect framework for KRS's clear, concise and tough rhymes. It's also the blueprint for some of the best, toughest, street conscious hip hop to come. It's a unique snapshot of the time, too, coming at the crossroads of hip hop's rise from the 80s streets to the mainstream, with KRS One standing for realness right there at the brink. Includes "Jack Of Spades", "The Blueprint", "You Must Learn", "Who Protects Us From You?", "Why Is That?", "Breath Control", and "Bo! Bo! Bo!". LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T & The MGsHip Hug-Her (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Stax, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
Booker T's definitely getting a bit funky with this one – stepping off with the incredible title cut, a tune which really complicates the groove from the earlier years! The sound is still solid Memphis soul, with a raw instrumental vibe – but the grooves are even better than before, and the set includes loads of great original number written by the group – the kind of cool tunes they most likely cooked up while jamming live in the studio! These gems include the seminal "Hip Hug Her" – plus "Carnaby Street", "Booker's Notion", "Soul Sanction", "Double Or Nothing", and "Slim Jenkins' Place". But the covers are groovy too – and include a version of "Pigmy", plus "Groovin" and "Sunny". LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T & The MGsPlay The Hip Hits – Previously Unissued Titles ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
It's like a dream come true – the kind of much-needed set for those of us who've always wanted more music from the too-short years that Booker T & The MGs were recording for Stax Records! This CD contains 25 tracks of unreleased Booker T & The MGs material – cut during their classic years at Stax during the 60s, but never issued until the release of this CD – working together to make a double-length collection that really expands their catalog for the label! The tracks on the CD are all cover versions of other 60s tunes – "hip hits", if you will – but the group does as great a job with the material – taking each tune and investing it with a keen Memphis soul groove, thanks to Steve Cropper's raunchy guitar and Booker T's excellent organ! Titles include "Baby, Scratch My Back", "I Was Made To Love Her", "Day Tripper", "On A Saturday Night", "Spoonful", "Soul Man", "Downtown", "The Letter", and "Raunchy". CD

Del Close & John BrentHow To Speak Hip ... LP
Mercury/Go Bop (Germany), 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
A hilarious album – not dated at all, and really pretty groovy stuff that holds up well over time! The format is this: Brent and Close are the hippie and straight man – presenting a guide to talking "hip", which is a mixture of beatnik and junkie slang, delivered in a variety of settings and interview styles. The album should be hokey, but given Close's hipness at the time, and his relaxed Chicago improv style, it comes off extremely well – and makes the album a treasure to listen to, filled with great bits that we'd love to see sampled on hip hop records (hint, hint!) Titles include "The Hang Up", "Basic Hip", "The Loose Wig", "Cool", "Uncool", and "Summary". LP, Vinyl record album

Georgia Soul CouncilCostanza/Hip Shot ... 7-inch
Hip, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99
Not the "Costanza" you might know from Seinfeld, but a tight funky number from the excellent Georgia Soul Council! The tune's got fast drums mixed with lots of Hammond riffing and tight horns – and the whole group shouts a catchy vocal bit at a few key spots. "Hip Shot" is even hipper – a real instrumental workout with some mighty nice guitar and organ lines throughout! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Claude Paradise Gray/Giuseppe U Net PipitoneNo Half Steppin – An Oral & Pictorial History Of New York City Club The Latin Quarter & The Birth Of Hip Hop's Golden Era ... Book
Wax Poetics, 2016. New Copy ... $18.99 34.99
A nice history of the classic hip hop culture in NYC that rose from Manhattan's Latin Quarter club – a vital mid 80s proving ground for legends and trailblazers of the time! No Half Steppin' is laid out beautifully in rarely seen photos, street flyers, and the first-hand knowledge of X-Clan cofounder and Latin Quarter host and manager Claude "Paradise" Gray, with author/activist/historian Giusseppe "U.Net" Pipitone, and a wealth of oral history from key players including Kurtis Blow, Grand Puba, Dana Dane, Prince Paul, Queen Latifah, Big Daddy Kane, Fab Five Freddy, KRS-One, Special K and many more. Paradise Gray was a major part of the team that helped turn the club into a hotbed for early hip hop talent, and many of the incredible photos here are from his personal archives. It's a solid time capsule – with tons of full color photos of destined-for-greatness figures on stage and on the scene, with some of the above mentioned heavies and many more. The textual history here nearly as rich as the photos, with chapters on the club's history, key performances over the years, the dance scene there, the impact of Public Enemy on the scene, and much more. Amazing! Paperback, 200+ pages. Book

✨✧ Terumasa HinoHip Seagull ... CD
Flying Disk (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $24.99
An overlooked set of 70s spiritual jazz from Japanese trumpeter Terumasa Hino – cut right at that perfect time when he was coming back inside, but wasn't nearly as slick as in his later years! Hino blows wonderfully here – really stretching out on some long, spacious numbers that show off all the creative tones he'd learned during his more spiritual years, while still hanging towards the warmer side of the spectrum with a hip electric lineup that includes Mikio Masuda on Fender Rhodes, John Scofield on guitar, and Clint Houston on Fender bass. The great Kohsuke Mine plays tenor and soprano sax, and there's vocals on two wonderful cuts – Tawatha singing on "This Planet Is Ours", a hip Harry Whitaker tune – and Kimiko Kasai on "Fall". Other tracks include "Life Trip" and "Hip Seagull" – and the album's got a wonderfully spiritual vibe overall! CD

Mark MurphyHip Parade ... LP
Capitol, 1960. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A real turning point in the career of singer Mark Murphy – a great session for Capitol from 1960, done with creative arrangements from Bill Holman, and a sound that opens up strongly from Murphy's Decca years! In a way, the record is one of the first times that Murphy really got to do what he wanted to on record – and working with Holman, he really opens up in the inventive, expressive modes that would mark the Murphy sound of later years – a style that was light years ahead of other male singers in jazz! Some tracks have small combo backings, others have big band, and a few feature support from a larger chorus – but throughout the entire set it's clear that Mark's not just a run of the mill pop singer on Capitol, and can sing here with a level of jazz that few others on the label ever matched! Titles include "Firefly", "Lonesome Town", "Catch A Falling Star", "All The Way", "Venus", "Send For Me", and "Personality". LP, Vinyl record album

Don Patterson with Booker ErvinHip Cake Walk ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Good+ ... $8.99
A massive pairing of the tenor of Booker Ervin and Hammond of Don Patterson – a record that's got a very famous cover image, and which marks for one of the greatest meetings of soul and modernism at mid-60s Prestige Records! There's no bass at all on the set – just lots of quick, tight rhythm lines from Patterson on the pedals of the Hammond – mixed with drums from Billy James, and served up with plenty of space for Ervin to open up on tenor – blowing with more soul than on some of his modernist sides of the time! The title cut – "Hip Cake Walk" – is a 16 minute groover, and other tracks include "Rosetta", "Sister Ruth", and "Donald Duck". Very cool cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Pete Rock & INICenter Of Attention – Hip Hop Underground Soul Classics ... LP
Vinyl Digital, Mid 90s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99 29.98
A once lost relic from hip hop's golden mid 90s era! This is the second of two albums from Pete Rock's archives of great unissue material to originally see release thanks to the knowledgeable crate diggers at BBE/Rapster, recorded during the period Pete Rock & CL Smooth were nearing the end of their contract with Elektra. Pete started putting together some side projects and a healthy archive of top notch productions featuring young & hungry MCs, some of which remained under wraps for years, and achieved legendary status. Of course this set's built on the staple Soul Brother #1 sound: rich and heavy with dense bass, propulsive beats, strong jazz and soul samples, and a tight over all sound, but the INI MC's are no slouch on the mic either, leaving us wonder why this only saw the light of day as a handful of promo singles. Rob O and Grap Luva handle the rhymes on the set with guest appearances by Q-Tip and Large Professor on "To Each His Own". 16 tracks in all, including the intro: "No More Words", "Step Up", "Think Twice", "Square One", "The Life I Live", "Krossroads", "Fakin' Jax", "What You Say", "Mind Over Matter", "Don't You Love It", "Microphone Wanderlust" and more!

The comic series that tells the tale of the early days of hip hop – but presents the story in the style of a Marvel Comics tabloid from the 70s! Ed Piskor's approach to the material is really unique – and he extrapolates historical details into an extended narrative of the scenes with colorful comic-style images. The monthly series anthologizes the stories in a way that's even truer to Piskor's comic book influences than the graphic novel collections. Amazing! Issue #2 features the story of "Rapper's Delight", and also stars Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Melle Mel, Keith Cowboy, Kid Creole, Mr. Ness & Rahiem. Book

Barry WhiteI've Got So Much To Give (with bonus tracks) ... CD
20th Century/Hip-O Select, 1973. Used ... $10.99
Barry White's got plenty to give here – a massive classic from his legendary early 70s years – and the first record to feature the maestro on his own as a lead act! The set's a masterpiece through and through – a sublime mix of soaring strings, soulful rhythms, and some killer compositions – a mini symphony in soul that forever set a standard for other artists to match! Barry's handing of the arrangements is great, with a bit of help from Gene Page – and when his magnificent vocals slide into the mix, things really take off – on a set of incredible cuts that includes the extended break classic "I'm Gonna Love You A Little More Baby", plus "I've Got So Much To Give", "Standing In The Shadows Of Yesterday", "I've Found Someone", and "Bring Back My Yesterday". CD features 2 bonus tracks – a killer instrumental of "Just A Little More Baby", and another instrumental of "I've Got So Much To Give". CD
