✨✧ Eazy-EEazy-Duz-It ... CD
Ruthless/Priority, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Eazy's first and best LP, from back when he was trying to kid everyone that he was still a teenager. As we all know, Eazy Duz It is a lot more of a companion piece to Straight Outta Compton than a standout solo album by Eazy E, with most the writing credits going to almost everyone involved with NWA EXCEPT Eazy. We all also know that that is a good thing, as the puckish MC was a much better mouthpiece than he was a great thinker. As an instrument of helium voiced anger and bile spewing, Eazy was pretty hard to top in those days (Eminem is Humpty Hump in comparison), and those tight, propulsive beats Dre and co. conjured up in the late 80s will keep our lowriders bouncing until the end of time. Truly a conceptual masterpiece, whether you're comfortable with that or not. Includes "Radio", "Eazy Duz It", "Boyz In The Hood", and "We Want Eazy". CD
(Original Priority/Ruthless version. BMG music club pressing.)

✨✧ NWA100 Miles & Runnin' EP ... CD
Priority/Ruthless, 1990. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The blistering 1990 EP by NWA – a fanbase divisive and critically underappreciated salvo in its day, despite being a fast seller – and a much sharper piece of work than it was credited for back in the day! NWA as a driven singular force was pretty much a thing of the past by this point, with Ice Cube having set off on his own path – turning the lyrical angry into a more interpersonal mode for sure, and also opening new creative production possibilities for Dr. Dre. Includes the masterful title track, which is blistering to this day, plus "Just Don't Bite It", "Sa Prize (Pt 2)", and "Kamurshol" – all of which hold up really strongly. CD

Just-IceDesolate One ... CD
Fresh, 1989. New Copy ... $6.99 14.98
The second post Mantronik set from the frequently slept on 80s rap genius Just-Ice – featuring production by none other than KRS-One – with a few righteous and ruthless tracks that stand up with the best from the earlier classic LPs! The rugged and raw KRS backdrop serves Just-Ice's gruff delivery very well – and if Desolate isn't the masterpiece it could have been, it's quality still eclipses many more popularly heralded albums from the era – and it's finally available after way too many years out of print! "Na Touch Da Just", "Desolate One", "Welfare Recipients", "Hijack" and a surprisingly dope performance by Heavy D on "Ram DanceHall Session." CD
Also available Desolate One ... LP 23.99

Alexa TarantinoFirefly ... CD
Posi tone, 2021. Used ... $9.99
Saxophonist Alexa Tarantino just seems to get better and better with each new record – stretching out here on a range of horns that includes alto and soprano sax, plus flutes and clarinet as well – and set up in a wonderful quintet that features the vibes of Behn Gillece, piano and Rhodes of Art Hirihara, bass of Boris Kozlov, and drums of Rudy Royston! If you know contemporary jazz and/or the Posi-Tone label, you'll know how great all these elements are individually – and together, they're even better than you might expect – as Tarantino leads the group through a strong set that mostly features original numbers, plus two Wayne Shorter remakes – very fitting, as there's an early Shorter spirit to the way some of these tunes unfold and flow. Titles include "Spider's Dance", "Mindful Moments", "Surge Capacity", "Firefly Code", "Lady Day", "Rootless Ruthlessness", and "Daybreak". CD
(Still sealed.)
