PigbagDr Heckle & Mr Jive ... LP
Stiff/Y Records, 1981. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Fast-riffing post-punk jazz from Pigbag – captured here at their lean and stripped-down best! The album's the group's first, and has them working in a flurry of spontaneous horn parts – saxes, trumpet, and trombone leaping together with a skittish energy that's kind of a jazz-based take on the frenetic grooves of more guitar-based UK groups of the same period. Rhythms are especially strong on most tracks, and given the tight vamping of the group along with the bass, there's a feel here that predates some of the more recent work on the club jazz scene – particularly the hard-wailing sound of Soil & Pimp Sessions. All tracks are instrumentals, and titles include "Getting Up", "Big Bag", "Dozo Don", "Brazil Nuts", "Brian The Snail", "As It Will Be", and "Orangutanto". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Schoolly DSaturday Night! - The Album (Jive pressing) ... LP
Jive, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The classic by Schoolly D – his second album, and the one where he really hits his stride – with profane humor and classic drum machine and oddball sample flavored production! It's almost hard-to-believe nowadays, but the un-PC rhymes were straight up scandalous back in the day – but Schoolly's laidback, charismatic delivery always tempered that language in our minds, and the production sounds fresh to this day. Not everyone agrees with us, but this is definitely one of our favorite favorite hip hop records of the later 80s! Inspired cuts include the title cut, "B-Boy Rhyme and Riddle", "We Get Ill", "Parkside 5-2", "We Get Ill", and the Code Money DJ track, "It's Krack", "Dis Groove Is Bad", "Get N' Paid", "Do It Do It" and the rest LP, Vinyl record album

Boogie Down ProductionsBy All Means Necessary ... LP
Jive, 1988. Very Good ... $19.99
Seminal late 80s righteous hip hop from KRS and Boogie Down Productions! By All Means Necessary shows remarkable change in lyrical style from Criminal Minded, delivering a eavy dose of knowledge at a time when so much hip hop was all about rocking the party. KRS's lyrics here mark a serious turn for political hip hop, and it sets a new standard production-wise, as well. Greatness! Includes "My Philosophy", "Ya Slippin'", "Jimmy", "Illegal Business", "Stop The Violence", "Nervous", "I'm Still #1", "Part Time Suckers", "T'Cha - T'Cha" and 'Necessary". LP, Vinyl record album

DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh PrinceHe's The DJ, I'm The Rapper ... LP
Jive/Zomba, 1988. Very Good+ 2LP ... $19.99
One of those rare moments where a mainstream hit goes onto preface years of creative talent to come – even though the whole thing might have seemed like a bit of a one-off at the time! The young Will Smith is fantastic as the Fresh Prince – full of charm, at a level that really upped the game for so many other MCs at the time – especially because both his lyrics and his subject matter weren't maybe the most cutting-edge, but could really come over strong, thanks to the inherent stardom in his presentation! We could well argue that Will on the album introduced the whole idea of a crossover hip hop star – one able to do just about anything – but the whole record would be nothing without the creative skills of Jazzy Jeff – who went the complete opposite way after his pairing with Will – more expressive, more experimental – and even more firmly committed to the underground. Yet it was also that easy bridge between underground and fame that made early hip hop albums like this so great – as Jeff brings forward so many great musical moments on titles that include "Live At Union Square", "DJ On The Wheels", "My Buddy", "Rhythm Trax House Party Style", "He's The DJ I'm The Rapper", "Hip Hop Dancers Theme", "Jazzy's In The House", and "Human Video Game".

Richard Jon SmithRichard Jon Smith ... LP
Jive, 1983. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Tightly-crafted 80s soul from Richard Jon Smith – a set that bubbles along with a nicely percolated groove, but which also comes across with a lot of warmth on the vocals! Richard's style of singing is light and loving – very much in keeping with his sweater-clad look on the cover, and in a mode that glides along wonderfully with the lively rhythms in the set. The record manages to strike a great balance between some light electro touches and Smith's more personal style of singing – in a mode that brings the two together perfectly, without an overly-contrasting groove. Titles include "Stay With Me Tonight", "She's The Master Of The Game", "Don't Go Walking Out That Door", "How I Miss You", "This Is The Moment", and "Baby's Got Another". LP, Vinyl record album

Too ShortBorn To Mack ... LP
Dangerous/Jive, 1988. Very Good ... $19.99
One of the quintessential albums that put the Bay Area on the hip hop map, and the first major label full length from one of the west coast's most prolific rappers. The minimalist sound works SO well here – there's not much in the mix besides drum machine, a bit of bass and the occasional cut or scratch – all the better to allow Too Short's street tales and profane rhymes pave the ground with singular power and charisma. Tracks include "Freaky Tales", "Partytime", "You Know What I Mean", "Dope Fiend Beat", "Little Girls", "The Universal Mix" and "Playboy $hort II". LP, Vinyl record album

Collection of 10 tracks from the days when DJ's were an essential part of any hip hop group. The concept here is that all the songs are either about the DJ or feature lots of DJ work. The bonus here is the version of "Eric B is President", a 6 minute mix that uses the vocals from the version on Zakia (not the vocals that appeared later on 4th & Broadway). Other tracks include "Code's Megamix" (a mix of early Schoolly D singles done by his DJ, Code Money), Run-DMC "Jam Master Jammin", Kurtis Blow "AJ Scratch", Cash Money & Marvelous "Ugly People Be Quiet", Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince "The Magnificent Jazzy Jeff", Grandmaster Flash "Larry's Dance Theme", Steady B & DJ Tat Money "Rockin Music", Whodini "Now That Whodini's Inside The Joint", Too Short "DJ Universal Mix" LP, Vinyl record album

The album that made Billy Ocean a superstar for a little while, one that had a HUGE couple of years on the charts, even longer service as a snapshot of its era, and is now one that we can look at freshly and appreciate for all of the unstoppably catchy pop soul craft that made it so massive in the first place! Billy's earlier Caribbean inflected pop and R&B was good stuff that deserved a bigger audience and boy did it ever find him with the mid 80s hits "Caribbean Queen", the killer ballad "Suddenly" and the crazy fun "Loverboy". Other tracks include "Mystery Lady", "Lucky Man", "Dancefloor" and "If I Should Lose You". LP, Vinyl record album

Bee Gees, Tavares, Yvonne Elliman, & OthersSaturday Night Fever ... LP
RSO, 1977. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
Yes, it was a mega-hit – and yes, it was one of those records that everyone who lived through the 70s seemed to own at one time – but after all these decades, you can't deny the power of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack – especially for the way that it mixed club soul classics with new original material! Obviously, the Bee Gees cover placement make them big stars of the record – but the set's also got some great early disco gems – like "Open Sesame" by Kool & The Gang, "Disco Inferno" by The Trammps, "KJEE" by MFSB, "Calypso Breakdown" by Ralph MacDonald, "Fifth Of Beethoven" by Walter Murphy, "If I Can't Have You" by Yvonne Elliman, "Boogie Shoes" by KC & The Sunshine Band, and "More Than A Woman" by Tavares. The Bee Gees reinvent themselves from the early days – and sing "Stayin Alive", "How Deep Is Your Love", "More Than A Woman", "Jive Talkin", "You Should Be Dancin", and "Night Fever" – and the set also features a few instrumentals by David Shire – "Manhattan Skyline", "Night On Disco Mountain" and "Salsation".

✨✧ Bob BrookmeyerBrookmeyer – Bob Brookmeyer & Friends (1980 pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Sound, space, tone, and color – a tremendous effort from trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, and a record with a really unique feel! The album features a wonderful group that includes Brookmeyer on valve trombone, Stan Getz on tenor, Gary Burton on vibes, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – all coming together in a way that's extremely equally-weighted – with less of Brookmeyer as the leader, than as a warm friend, gathering together a few key players in the studio. Given that Getz worked with Brookmeyer back in the early 50s, and had Burton in his group at the time, the album's always a link between both sides of a decade in Stan's career – but with the presence of the modernists on the rhythm team, there's a sound here that's much more unique – one that has a place for Stan's wonderful tone, and Brookmeyer's airy phrasing – but which also drives along in a rhythmically pulsing mode that almost puts Burton's vibes at the top of the set on some numbers. There's a change in mood from tune to tune that gives the record a remarkable depth, but without sounding schizophrenic – and titles include "Bracket", " Wrinkle Time", "Jive Hoot", "Skylark", "Sometime Ago", and "Who Cares".

Wolfgang DaunerRischkas Soul ... LP
Brain/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
A fantastic album from German keyboard giant Wolfgang Dauner – and maybe one of the few to perfectly balance both his soul jazz roots and his later trippier style! The music here is very groovy – much more in the mode of MPS Records electric jazz sets of the time than you'd guess from the album's placement on Brain Records – and the lineup features incredible work from Sigi Schwab on guitar – who can be open and spacious at some points, but then really jam with a groove at others! Likewise, the bassist Eberhard Weber can provide a lot of propulsion when needed, but also lay back and bow his cello in a more ECM-like way – and the album's two drummers, Fred Braceful and Roland Wittich, both show an equally deft ability to change up the groove! The real superstar, though, is the mighty Dauner – who plays piano, organ, and keyboards, plus a sweet bit of flute too – on tracks that include "Reading Machine", "Kamasutram", "Blues Far Out", "Flute Woman", and a freaky fuzzy take on Cannonball Adderley's "Jive Samba".

Babs GonzalesLive At Small's Paradise (aka Sunday Afternoon At Small's Paradise With Babs Gonzales) ... LP
Chiaroscuro, 1963. Sealed ... $16.99
A mad mad afternoon with the great Babs Gonzales – one of the hippest jazz singers ever! The set is one of Babs' best on records, and it features a mix of jazz vocals and hipster monologues that shows perfectly the mixture of talent and hustling that Babs used to make a name for himself in the New York scene. He's backed by a nice little combo that includes friends and songwriting partners like Horace Parlan, Clark Terry, and Johnny Griffin – and the set includes loads of great numbers like "Dem Jive New York People", "Keep An Ugly Woman", "Be Bop Santa Claus", and "Le Moody Mood Pour Amour". The whole thing's hung together with some great patter, and recorded in a way that shows the warm spirit of all the more famous folks who kept Babs going along during his glory years! This is the second pressing, on Chiarusco, but still a tough one to get a hold of! LP, Vinyl record album

A late 60's issue of Lord Buckley's rare early recordings for the Vaya label in LA – groundbreaking sides that predated most comedy albums, and which also had a huge influence on the spoken word recordings of the beat generation! The tracks were recorded live, with Buckley talking in a mixture of jive and gibberish that may well have marked him as the first true hipster on record – and which also puts him in a lineage that's somewhere between Slim Gaillard and Babs Gonzales. Titles include "The Nazz", "Jonah And The Whale", "Nero", "Gettysburg Address", "Marc Antony's", and "Funeral Notation" LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1976. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
A well-titled set – as it's the mid 70s, and the Ohio Players were certainly turning out a lot of gold! Their move to Mercury Records from the smaller indie Westbound was a real winning move – as it gave them a smoother soul feel that only expanded their groove, not restricted it! This tasty "best of" set features most of their top work from those years – with killer tunes that include "Love Rollercoaster", "Fire", "Skin Tight", "Who'd She Coo", "Feel The Beat", "I Want To Be Free", "Fopp", "Far East Mississippi", "Only A Child Can Love", "Jive Turkey (part 1)", and the great "Sweet Sticky Thing"!

Ohio PlayersSkin Tight ... LP
Mercury, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
Great work from the Ohio Players – and proof that moving to a big label could be a good thing for a funky group! This was the band's first album for Mercury – and although one might have the temptation to say that the label cut down the radical funk sound of the trippy Westbound years, the move also taught the band to sharpen up their act, and get out of the repetitive sloppy groove into which they'd been lapsing during the past few years. The record's a lot smoother than earlier work – with a polished funky sound that would soon push the band right up there with Earth Wind & Fire at the top of the soul charts. And although there's familiar funky numbers like "Skin Tight", "Jive Turkey", and "Streakin Cheek To Cheek" – the best moment on the entire album is the wonderful spacey soul number "Heaven Must be Like This", a seven minute mellow groover that's got a sophisticated jazzy soul style, with voices and piano soaring into the heavens, in a way that always still sends chills down our spine! That cut shows the band's tremendous growth – and it's one of their best-ever! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ RufusRufus Featuring Chaka Khan ... LP
ABC, 1975. Very Good ... $6.99
Great work by one of the archetypal funky soul bands of the 70s – and a group whose impact is still being felt today! Of course, one of the reasons for that is Chaka Khan's incredible vocals – caught here at a prime early point, and very nicely set against some warm electric keyboards and tight groovy guitars – which provide a groove that's live and spontaneous, and never too forced – just the right kind of energy to work perfectly with her approach to the lyrics, without any of the too-polished modes you'd fine from copycat groups trying to fake a sound like this. Rufus had been with Chaka for years by this point – fusing together a sublime blend of funk, soul, jazz, and rock – a sound they forged woodshedding in Chicago in the early days, let loose in perfect studio territory on the west coast of the 70s. The whole thing's a classic – and titles include "Jive Talking", "Sweet Thing", "Fools Paradise", "Circle", "Everybody Has An Aura", and "On Time". LP, Vinyl record album
