La LupeFiebre Con EL Diablo En El Cuerpo ... CD CD format
Discuba, Early 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 12.98
Early work from La Lupe – but a set that already shows the highly dynamic style that would make her a real standout in 60s Latin music! A number of the tracks here are listed as "rock" in the rhythms – which doesn't exactly mean that Lupe's singing rock music, but already shows an ear for the kind of elements that would cross over to larger audiences than just the usual Latin crowd – almost a prequel to the styles that would come up even more during the Latin Soul years! Many of these numbers are kind of a Spanish-language equivalent of Jovem Guarda modes in mid 60s Brazil – although maybe a bit less rocking overall – and Lupe's vocals are amazing in the setting, almost even more striking than in later years. Titles include "Alone", "Quiereme Siempre", "Fiebre", "Con El Diablo En El Cuerpo", "Crazy Love", and "Es Una Bomba". CD

La LupeEs La Reina (The Queen) ... CD CD format
Tico/Fania, Late 60s. New Copy ... Around August 1, 2014 (delayed)
La Lupe was certainly the queen of Latin music at the time of this set – and she works here in a mix of emotive ballads and more lively groovers that show the full range of her talents! Joe Cain handled arrangements on all of side one – and he casts Lupe in a string-heavy mode that really brings a dark undercurrent to the ballads and sadder songs used on the set. Hector Rivera takes over on side two, and puts Lupe in a more percussive setting that bubbles with life and joy – sometimes hinting at Latin Soul modes of the time, but mostly sticking into a rootsier, more traditional mode. Titles include "Puro Teatro", "Sueno", "Ultimo Adios", "A La Orilla Del Mar", "El Dia Que Yo Naci", "La Reina", "Me Siento Guajira", "Cafe Con Leche", "That's The Way It's Gonna Be", and "Guaguanco Bembe".

La LupeQueen Of Latin Soul/Reina De La Cancion Latina ... CD CD format
Tico, Late 60s. New Copy ... Around August 1, 2014 (delayed)
While Pete Rodriguez and Pete Terrace were battling it out for the "King Of The Boogaloo" title – La Lupe went ahead and dubbed herself "The Queen Of Latin Soul"! Oddly, though, the album's less of a strict Latin Soul effort than you might guess from the title – and is more of a mix of different modes, including some more heartfelt ballads that were more typical of Lupe's work – sung here with that heartfelt sense of soul that's most likely the real reason for her claim to the title! Arrangements are by Hector DeLeon, and bring a good focus on Lupe's incredible vocals through creative use of strings and percussion. Titles do include a Latin Soul version of "Fever", plus more traditional Latin tunes that include "Amor Gitano", "Aun", "Negruna", "Este Ritmo Sabroson", "Soy Sonerita", "La Tirana", and "Busamba".

VariousEl Barrio – The Bad Boogaloo – Nuyorican Sounds 1966 to 1970 ... CD CD format
Fania/Codigo, Late 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 12.99
Nothing bad here, as the grooves are all totally great – and pulled from the hardest-hitting side of the New York Latin scene at the end of the 60s! The collection does a great job of mixing together some of the key favorites from the classic Fania catalog with a few other bits that haven't been reissued before – and together, the tracks work perfectly to serve up that unique blend of soul, funk, and Latin that was going down in the Spanish Harlem scene during these crucial crucial years! Dean Rudland compiled and handled the notes – and he's definitely at the top of his game here. Collection features 16 tracks in all – including "Gimme Some Love" by Joe Cuba, "Morris Park" by Lenni Sesar, "Come & Get It" by Ralph Robles, "Bad Breath" by Bobby Valentin, "Mercy Mercy Baby" by Ray Barretto, "King Of Latin Soul" by Joey Pastrana, "Aye Que Rico" by Eddie Palmieri, "Mama's Girl" by King Nando, "Marilu" by George Guzman, "Fever" by La Lupe, "Happy Soul With A Hook" by Dave Cortez & The Moon People, "Camel Walk" by The Latinaires, "What You Mean" by Johnny Colon, "Guajira Con Soul" by Johnny Ventura, "Jumpin With Symphony Sid" by Ray Rodriguez, and "Baby Boo Boogaloo" by Vladimir & His Orchestra.

New Kanye WestLate Registration ... CD CD format
Def Jam, 2005. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Time will tell whether the sophomore LP Late Registration will prove to be as revolutionary of a commercial force as College Dropout turned out to be – but it's a better album! We loved the debut as much as the rest of the world did, but this one's an easier listen from beginning to end. The production is tight, the guests earn their spots, and the whole thing's furiously soulful. Much is being made of LA hipster/orch pop troubadour Jon Brion's co-production, but this is Kanye's show. On one level Kanye can rock a subject as cliched as "Gold Digger", and still come out with a fresh perspective that runs deeper than it sounds on the surface, then deliver a serious track about the evils of the diamond trade that still rocks the ice. And those are just the first singles. Another great one! Tracks include "Wake Up Mr West", "Heard 'Em Say", "Touch The Sky" feat Lupe Fiasco, "Gold Digger" feat Jamie Foxx, "Drive Slow" feat Paul Wall & GLC, "My Way Home" feat Common, "Crack Music" feat Game, "Roses", "Bring Me Down" feat Brandy, "Diamonds From Sierra Leone" (rmx) feat Jay-Z, "We Major" feat Nas & Really Doe, "Gone" feat Consequence & Cam'Ron and more!

New VariousIt's A Scream How Levine Does The Rhumba – The Latin/Jewish Musical Story 1940s to 1980s ... CD CD format
Idelsohn Society, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest collections of Latin music we've ever seen – and one of the first to really demonstrate the importance of the Jewish market during the postwar years! The New York scene wasn't just fed by a hotbed of Cuban and Puerto Rican customers – and Jewish listeners were a key part of its success in the 40s, 50s, and 60s – especially as a rising middle class found new time to enjoy itself both at clubs in the city and resorts up in the Catskills! The Jewish/Latin connection has been a big part of recording from the start – no real secret to anyone who's been buying Latin records for years – but this package goes out of its way to bring it all into sharp focus, with a really big booklet of notes, and a revolutionary selection of tracks that traces different elements through a variety of different Latin styles, plus a few other genres as well. Easily one of the most playful, powerful packages so far from the excellent Idelsohn Society – with 41 tracks that include "Exodus" by Ray Barretto, "Hava Nageela" by Celia Cruz, "El Molestoso" by Eddie Palmieri, "Cheek To Cheek" by Candido, "Arriba (part 1)" by The Barton Brothers, "Miami Beach Rhumba" by Xavier Cugat, "Matzoh Ball Merengue" by Jonny Conquet, "Pan Amor Y Cha Cha Cha" by Abbe Lane & Tito Puente, "My Yiddishe Mambo" by Mickey Katz, "Cucaraca Macara" by Harvey Averne, "Just Another Guajira" by Mark Weinstein, "America" by La Lupe, "Twist Of Hava Nageela" by Perez Prado, "Loco" by Don Tosii with Raul Diaz, and "Raleigh Riff" by La Plata Sextet.

New Robert GlasperBlack Radio Vol 2 ... LP LP format
Blue Note, 2013. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold ... $22.99 24.98
Mindblowing work from Robert Glasper – a set that makes us fall in love with his music even more than before – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given that we've loved him for years! Glasper's working here in his collaborative Black Radio format – but at a level that's even more perfected than the initial album of this project – a really groundbreaking blend of live jazz instrumentation and underground soul inspiration – served up by Robert's core quartet, with help from a whole host of wonderful guest singers! Glasper alone is worth the price of admission – Fender Rhodes and piano lines that are completely sublime, in that flowing groove that's only gotten better with age – and the combo also features wicked bass from Derrick Hodge, sax and flute from Casey Benjamin, and some damn funky drums from Mark Colenburg – who proves that you don't need any drum loops or samples to make music this great. The singers are the icing on the cake – a lineup that includes Faith Evans, Dwele, Jill Scott, Common, Lupe Fiasco, Lalah Hathaway, Norah Jones, and others – on titles that include "Calls", "Worries", "I Stand Alone", "What Are We Doing", "Trust", "Yet To Find", "You Own Me", "Somebody Else", "Persevere", and "Let It Ride".

Lupe FiascoLasers ... CD CD format
Warner, 2011. Used ... $5.99
Lupe Fiasco proves again why he's one of the most discussed figures in hip hop on Lasers – running the show here, but with some guest spots by Skylar Grey, Trey Songz, MDMA and others. Lupe is that fascinating figure who is more likely to be heard plotting a route out of the rap game than he his plotting a takeover – and that sometimes thematically weary, but always passionate and exuberant voice is at the center here. Titles include "Words I Never Said" with Skylar Grey, "Till I Get There", "Out Of My Head" with Trey Songs, "The Show Goes On", "All Black Everything", "Coming Up" feat MDMA, "Never Forget You" with John Legend and more.

New Robert GlasperBlack Radio ... LP LP format
Blue Note, 2012. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing new chapter in the career of Robert Glasper – one of our favorite new jazz musicians of the past decade or so! This set features loads of Glasper's enigmatic piano lines – those fluid, elliptical sounds that are always filled with plenty of soul and imagination – matched here with guest vocals from a host of key talents – including Erykah Badu, Lalah Hathaway, Musiq Soulchild, Meshell Ndegeocello, Bilal, and Lupe Fiasco! The blend is surprisingly wonderful – not a sell out at all, but a way for Glaspar's music to reach a rich new level of expression – as the vocals really help the instrumental elements come alive – and unlock this side of Robert's potential that was always lurking in the background. One of the best musical moments we've heard from Blue Note in years – with titles that include "Always Shine", "Move Love", "Ah Yeah", "Lift Off", "Afro Blue", "Cherish The Day", "Black Radio", and "Letter To Hermione".

New Lupe FiascoLupe Fiasco's The Cool ... CD CD format
Atlantic, 2007. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lupe Fiasco takes his style a kick & a push deeper than the perceived sunny positivity of his debut on second album The Cool – flashing some biting social criticism – and a sharp brilliance that shows he's too restless to simply coast! The clean, buzzing synth funk orchestra vibe that was a highlight of the Food & Liquor set encores here, especially on the tracks Soundtrakk produced – but the mood is a little heavier. Strong stuff in both overall quality and lyrical content, with some real standouts. F & L was no fluke – Lupe is the real thing! Titles include ""Free Chilly" feat Sarah Green & Gemstones, "Go Go Gadget Flow", "The Coolest", "Superstar" feat Matthew Santos, "Paris, Tokyo", "Hi-Definition" feat Snoop Dogg and Pooh Bear, "Gold Wathch", "Intruder Alert" feat Sarah Green, "Dumb It Down"feat Gemstones & Graham Burris, "Fighters" feat Mathew Santos and more.

Strut (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great overview of the far reaching strains of jazzy and funky music made in South Africa from the early 60s to the late 70s – the conclusion of the incredible Next Stop Soweto series on Strut – capping off the series with the best of the three! In a period of both physical and cultural segregation, truly exceptional music was made – much of it in a jazzy mode – relatively early soul jazz sounds and jazzy funk that's uniquely South African. African drums, percussion fused with region free jazziness and boundless spirit. Amazing stuff! The CD version includes 19 tracks on 2CDs: "Itumeleng" by Matsumi, "Joy" by Spirits Rejoice, "Emakhaya" by The Heshoo Beshoo Group, "Little Old Man (Maxhegwana)" by Early Mabuza Quartet, "Orlando" by Dennis Mpale, "Sibathathu" by Malombo Jazz Makers, "Spring" by Chris Schilder Quartet feat Mankunku, "Stay Cool" by Tete Mbambisa", "Ou Kaas" by Themba, "Pinese's Dance" by The Soul Giants, "Inhlupeko" by The Soul Jazzmen and more.

New Lupe FiascoTetsuo & Youth ... CD CD format
Atlantic, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nice progressive step for Lupe Fiasco – a rhymer who was ready to carve out his own distinctive niche from the beginning his career, and it's never been more unique than it is on Tetsuo & Youth – with diverse, though always soulfully resonant production by S1, Wiz Buchanan, DJ Dahi, Lupe himself, and others. It's almost damning to note an artist's maturation from a young hopeful to seasoned veteran, as "maturing" is too often mistaken for "getting old" – so we're running a risk by saying it, but Lupe Fiasco's style has indeed matured, but in an exciting, inspiring way. This is a guy who can start a track with a string section or even a banjo sample and still ring true as city-reared, straight up hip hop. This is a record we'll keep coming back to for a long time to come! Includes "Summer", "Mural", Blur My Hands" with Guy Sebastian, "Fall", "Prisoner 1 & 2" with Ayesha Jaco, "Little Death" and "No Scratches" with Nikki Jean, "Deliver", "Adoration Of The Magi" with Crystal Torres, "Spiring", "They. Resurrect. Over. New." with Ab-Soul & Troi and more. CD

New Robert DelgadoJamaica Disco/Dancing Queen/Tanz Unter Tropischer Sonne ... CD CD format
Vocalion (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A sweet trio of late 70s albums from Robert Delgado – all wrapped up together in a 2CD set! The music here all holds onto those Caribbean and Latin touches that made Delgado so great in the 60s – a unique pop instrumental approach to global genres that made Robert almost an A&M equivalent on the German easy scene! On these records, though, Delgado also brings in a bit of disco too – not a full-on New York groove, but lots of clubby touches alongside the easy instrumental modes – smoothing out the earlier styles a bit more for a mainstream dancefloor. The approach is surprisingly appealing at times – and the three albums together serve up a whopping 46 tracks that include "In Zaire", "Dance Little Lady Dance", "Verde", "Silver Bird", "Taboo", "Mambo Jambo", "Black River", "Guadalupe Limbo", and "Arawak".
