✨✧ Crash CrewCrash Crew ... LP
Sugar Hill, 1984. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest hip hop acts from the early days of Sugar Hill – but a group who don't often get the same sort of cred as the label's bigger names at the time! The Crash Crew have a youthful energy that really lives up to their name – a loose approach to rhyme that sounds especially live on the longer tracks on the album – mixes with a more tuneful style at times that almost prefaces the growth of the genre in years to come! "Breaking Bells" and "We Want To Rock" both have a massive South Bronx party feel – and other cuts include "Scratching", "On The Radio", and "We Are Known As Emcees". LP, Vinyl record album

Grandmaster Flash & The Furious FiveMessage ... LP
Sugar Hill, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
The classic debut album by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five – one of the pioneering groups in hip hop -history- not that we didn't need to tell you that! With prototypical party jams and the original conscious rap landmark "The Message", all over old school grooves laid down under Sylvia Robinson's watchful eye by the Sugar Hill rhythm section with Doug Wimbish, Skip McDonald, Keith LeBlanc and crew. That funky depth keeps it fresh to this today, with deeper classics like "Scorpio" and "It's Nasty", plus "Dreamin", "It's A Shame" and "You Are". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBoombox 2 – Early Independent Hip Hop, Electro, & Disco Rap – 1979 to 1983 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 22.99
The real sound of the old school, and the best beats from the streets – the kind of early underground hip hop tracks that still sound wonderful after all these years! These are tracks from the earliest years of the style – when funk was as much a part of the music as lyrics – and tracks were often surprisingly long, and spun out in the best sort of party mode – with an excellent focus on funky drum breaks and basslines, matched by lyrics from youthful crews and MCs that set the standard for countless artists to come! As with the first volume, the track selection here is wonderful – a mix of key classics from the Harlem and South Bronx scenes, plus some overlooked gems that are well-worth discovering – all wrapped up with the usual top-shelf attention to detail we've come to expect from Soul Jazz Records! The package features loads of great notes and photos – and titles include "Maximus Party" by TJ Swann & Pee Wee Mel, "Death Rap" by Margo's Kool Out Crew, "Lookin Good" by Eddie Cheba, "One Time Two Time Blow Your Mind" by MC Rock Lovely, "Let's Rock" by Harlem World Crew, "School Days" by Busy Bee, "Ah That's The Joint" by Kool DJ AJ, "Dancin Party People" by Little Skarsky, "Young Ladies" by Lonnie Love, "Rappin Partee Groove" by Rappers Rapp Group, "The People's Message Take Two" by Terry Lewis & Wild Flower, "Shake Your Body" by Manujothi, "Dr Ice Rap" by Zoot II, and "Rock The Message Rap" by Grand Master Chilly T & Stevie G.

VariousO Forro – Brazil Classics Vol 3 ... CD
Luaka Bop, 1991. Used ... $1.99
After coming up with classic compilations of MPB and Samba, David Byrne and the Luaka Bop crew turn their interests to Forro – folksy party music from the Northeast of Brazil, with surprising ties to Tex/Mex traditions, but an overall approach that's more sophisticated. There's a total of 18 tracks in all, with the requisite great set of notes – and titles include "O Fole Roncou" by Luiz Gonzaga, "Asa Branca" by Gonzaguinha, "Rejeicao" by Trio Nordestino, "Chiclete Com Banana" and "Tum Tum Tum" by Jackson Do Pandeiro, "Vou Com Voce" by Dominguinhos, "Festa Do Interior" by Gal Costa, and "Recordacao De Vaqueiro" by Clemilda.

✨✧ Parliament5 Classic Albums (Mothership Connection/Clones Of Dr Funkenstein/Funketelechy Vs The Placebo Syndrome/Motor Booty Affair/Gloryhallastoopid) ... CD
Casablanca/Universal (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 5 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funk fan's dream come true – five classic albums from Parliament, all presented in tiny LP-styled covers! First up is Mothership Connection – still some of the tightest, sharpest funk you'll ever hear – all these many decades later. The instrumentation is razor-sharp – played by giants like Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker, Bootsy Collins, and Bernie Worrell – and the lyrics still have all the edginess and naughtiness of the earlier years – tied together wonderfully to make a very unified album, and one that's full of classics too! Titles include "Mothership Connection (Star Child)", "Night Of The Thumpasorus Peoples", "P-Funk (Wants To Get Funked Up)", "Handcuffs", "Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)", and "Unfunky Ufo". Clones Of Dr Funkenstein has that tightened-up P-Funk sound that was working so perfectly at the time – still with all the fuzzy haired elements of earlier years, but presented with a bit more focus – and a powerhouse swing that really drives the tracks home with a funky groove on the bottom! There's a flowing sort of energy here that almost makes you think that the whole thing just emerged naturally from the brain of George Clinton – but all ensemble players have a strong hand in the action, and really get some great moments in on the set. Cuts include "Gamin' On Ya", "Do That Stuff", "Children Of Production", and "I've Been Watching You (Move Your Sexy Body)". Funkentelechy is a masterful dose of slick mothership jamming – perfectly woven together with that tightly compressed style that really served Clinton's production work well. The tracks are long, but never too loopy – and thanks to help from the Bernie Worrell, Jerome Brailey, Gary Shider, and the Horny Horns, the album stays very tight instrumentally all the way through! Loads of Parliament classics, including "Bop Gun", "Funkentelechy", "Sir Nose D'Voidoffunk", and the massive "Flash Light", which we've heard a million times, but which never ceases to amaze us! On Motorbooty Affair, The Mothership goes under water – as George Clinton and crew groove away nicely on this water-themed set of tracks designed to raise Atlantis from the deep! The overall sound is perhaps not as totally perfect as some of the earlier albums, but the P-Funk machine is still in full effect – cranking away nice and hard on tracks like "Liquid Sunshine", "Motor Booty Affair", "Deep", "Rumpofsteelskin", and "(Your'e A Fish And I'm A) Water Sign". Plus, the album more than makes up for a lack of standout tracks with a nicely-united theme – almost a "concept album" of the funky type! Gloryhallastoopid is a set that's very tight and funky, and which really picks up the groove first laid down on "Flashlight"! There's a tightly snapping approach here that rivals the best late 70s work by Funkadelic – the later P-Funk mode that's even more focused on rhythms than before, and which gets away from the sloppy stuff to really hit home with the groove! Tunes are steeped in horny horns, wah wah guitar, and lots of electric keyboards – and titles include "The Big Bang Theory", which is virtually a blueprint for the LA G-funk sound of the 80s – plus the tracks "The Freeze", "May We Bang You?", "Party People", and "(GloryHallaStoopid) Pin The Tail On The Funky".

✨✧ Sandra De Sa/Equipe Radio CidadeOlhos Coloridos/Bons Tempo – Sao Paulo ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1980/1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
"Olhos Coloridos" is one of the funkiest tunes we've ever heard from Sandra De Sa – not an all-out jam, but a number that begins with fast-riffing acoustic guitar over percussion, keyboards, and a sweet bassline – all given a slight modern soul production tip, and topped with Sandra's all-soul vocals! The flipside is even funkier – a great party number from Equipe Radio Cidade – clearly based on the style of "Rapper's Delight", with Portuguese spoken bits over a sweet "Good Times" groove! Almost seems to be a cover of the cut from the Chicago radio crew at WGCI! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ James LastBeachparty 3 ... LP
Polydor (Germany), Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A sunny sort of groove party from German Maestro James Last! Last had already been turning out lots of instrumental pop for the German scene in the 60s – but he reinvented his sound a bit with these classic Beachparty records from the early 70s – going for a groove that's upbeat and swinging, still with some of the brassy punch of before – but also adding in more tropical elements on percussion, and very effectively using a mixed male/female vocal group to add lyrics to the tunes! The singers are well-chosen – from British groups like Brotherhood Of Man, The Breakaways, and The Ladybirds – and vocals are all in English, with a sing-song sort of playfulness that might well be called a precursor to the sound of ABBA. And the music here is definitely in the same spirit of ABBA, too – poppy and catchy, as the Last crew take on lots of familiar hits of the day, and recast them into their own sort of groove. LP, Vinyl record album
