Sugar Hill, 1979. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The eponymous LP by the Sugarhill Gang – with some of the most infectious late 70s/early 80s grooves ever laid to wax! This is one of the first-ever full-length hip hop albums – cut on the success of the massive "Rapper's Delight" single! The record purports to feature percussion by Tito Puente – and it's also got live instrumentation by Keith LeBlanc on drums, Skip McDonald on guitar, and Sylvia Robinson on vibes. Features a 5 minute version of "Rappers Delight", plus "Rappers Reprise", "Passion Play", "Sugarhill Groove", and "Here I Am". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original gatefold pressing. Cover has wear.)

✨✧ Sugarhill Gang/ChicMeet Your Maker – Rapper's Delight/Good Times (2016 Black Friday Release) ... 7-inch
Rhino, 1979/1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first single in Rhino's Meet Your Maker series – pairing classic hip hop tracks with an iconic song for which it pulled a core funky sample! They couldn't have picked a finer example for the series debut, featuring Sugarhill Gang's most legendary number "Rapper's Delight" with the forever delightful "Good Times" by Chic – which might've just seemed like a wickedly funky pop tune in its day – but who knew that that bass and guitar groove would inspire a whole generation of hip hoppers?! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited edition.)

✨✧ Sugarhill Gang8th Wonder ... LP
Sugar Hill, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the first full albums from the Sugarhill Gang – and a good sampling of their early tracks for Sugarhill! Includes the group's classic remake of "Apache" – complete with breaks stolen from the Incredible Bongo Band – plus the cuts "Funk Box" and "On The Money", which both have a compressed 80s groove soul sort of approach. Also features "Showdown", a classic old school battle track, recorded with the Furious 5 – plus the cuts "8th Wonder", "Hot Hot Summer Day", and "Kick It Live From 9 to 5". LP, Vinyl record album

Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandScorpio/8th Wonder ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99 9.98
The Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band take on two classics from the old school – both with their trademark mix of steel drums and funk! "Scorpio" is the classic jam from Dennis Coffey – taken in a way here that's completely different, as the drums take on the guitar parts – and other percussion creates a massively skittish groove! "8th Wonder" is the classic track from Sugarhill Gang – but done here without any vocals at all, which leaves more fantastic focus on the bursts of sound that drive the tune, and that wonderful hook that hangs all the way through! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Candi StatonNightlites (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sugar Hill/BMG (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $12.99
An obscure later set from Candi Staton – done on the heels of her bigger club hits, but in a very different mode! The style is very much in an 80s groove sort of bag – and Candi's backed on the album by the Sugarhill Gang and West Street Mob, who both give the whole thing a nice east coast indie vibe – yet production is also by her frequent studio partner Dave Crawford, who keeps things right with the best sort of southern soul currents alongside the grooves – which, given Candi's vocals, may well make the set the strongest soul record released on Sugarhill. The mix has an appealing indie sort of feel, and Candi's vocals are very upfront in the mix, even on the more electric tunes – and titles include "Love & Be Free", "The Sunshine Of Our Love", "Hurry Sundown", "Tender Hooks", "Count On Me", and "Suspicious Minds". CD features bonus extended versions of "Suspicious Minds" and "Count On Me". CD

VariousEverybody Wants Some – Music From The Motion Picture (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Rhino, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 28.98
A sweet little soundtrack – filled with the sort of late 70s/early 80s gems you'd expect from this movie by Richard Linklater! The film's been called a sequel to Dazed & Confused, and the music is too – classic tracks pulled from roughly the same time period as the music used on the mixtape in Guardians Of The Galaxy, but maybe a bit more open-ended stylistically, too – with a lineup that includes "Cars" by Gary Numan, "Driver's Seat" by Sniff N The Tears, "Good Times Roll" by The Cars, "I'm Bad I'm Nationwide" by ZZ Top, "Maybe I'm A Fool" by Eddie money, "Whip It" by Devo, "Bad Girls" by Donna Summer, "Everybody Wants Some" by Van Halen, "Pop Muzik" by M, "Rough Boys" by Pete Townshend, "I Want You To Want Me (live)" by Cheap Trick, "Because The Night" by Patti Smith, "My Sharona" by The Knack, "Heart Of Glass" by Blondie, "Rapper's Delight" by Sugarhill Gang, "Every 1's A Winner" by Hot Chocolate, "Heartbreaker" by Pat Benatar, "Alternative Ulster" by Stiff Little Fingers, and "Let's Get Serious" by Jermaine Jackson. LP, Vinyl record album
(2LP pressing features 8 bonus tracks!)

✨✧ SequenceFunk You Up (long, short) ... 12-inch
Sugar Hill, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Three female singers/MC's with backing by the Sugarhill Gang Band – and rhymes that sound like they might have been written by the Sugarhill Gang. Maybe it's not up to the standards of other early female MC's like Sha Rock of the Funky 4 +1, but this is more like a 1979-era slow-tempo funk/dance track than a straight hip hop record. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Sugar Hill sleeve. Labels have a spot of marker.)
