Digital UndergroundThis Is An EP Release ... LP
Tommy Boy, 1990. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 16.98
Maybe just an EP, but a short set that's every bit as important to the Digital Underground catalog as their full length albums – as the whole thing is overflowing with the kind of funky tracks that made these guys a standout right from the start! The set's only got six tracks, but that maybe makes it even tighter and more unified than you might expect – as the whole thing's got that classic bass-heavy funk approach that made Digital Underground such a key link between hip hop and soul, in both their 90s present and the past. Tracks include "Same Song", "Tie The Knot", "The Way We Swing (remix)", "Nuttin Nis Funky", "Packet Man (Worth A Packet remix)", and "Arguin On The Funk". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition!)

Jonzun CrewLost In Space (yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Tommy Boy, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
Sweet breaking grooves from The Jonzun Crew – an early act in the Tommy Boy hip hop roster, and one who were maybe a bit more electro than the rest! Here, Jonzun Crew have a vibe that's nicely like Newcleus – lots of sharp drum machine beats, peppered with keyboards, vocoder on the vocals, and an overall outer space image that really fits their sound! Michael Jonzun is the vocalist and electronic wizard in the lead – and Jellybean remixed a few of the tracks for the album, too. There's a really unified feel here – Jonzun and crew definitely keep their sound strong throughout – on titles that include "Electro Boogie Encounter", "We Are The Jonzun Crew", "Space Is The Place", "Ground Control", "Space Cowboy", and "Pack Jam". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition – on clear yellow vinyl!)

Lord FinesseAwakening (25th anniversary edition – colored vinyl pressing with bonus instrumentals LP & 7" single) ... LP
Tommy Boy, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $32.99 36.98
A stone classic from Lord Finesse – a key moment when the DITC underground got a chance to hit the mainstream – and really show the rest of the world why NYC was still the undisputed center of hip hop! Finesse is fantastic, both as a producer and lyricist – and that collaborative vibe of the crates crew is still very much in place here – opening the door to appearances from MC Lyte, Showbiz, Kid Capri, OC, Akinyele, and KRS-One – while also holding onto a solid sense of identity that's made this one a treasure for decades. Titles include "Time Ta Bounce", "Brainstorm/PSK (no gimmicks rmx)" with KRS-One and OC, "Gameplan", "Taking It Lyte" featuring MC Lyte, "Flip Da Style", "Showtime" featuring Showbiz, "Speak Ya Peace" with Diamond, AG and Marquee, "Food For Thought", "Hip 2 Da Game", "True & Livin", "O Lord" featuring OC, "Words From Da Ak" featuring Akinyele, and "No Gimmicks" featuring KRS-One.

NoreagaNORE (clear with blue splatter vinyl pressing) ... LP
Penalty/Tommy Boy, 1998. New Copy 2LP ... $36.99 40.99
Maybe the best-ever album from Noreaga – a rock-solid debut that comes across with all the confidence of his image on the cover! The record's definitely got a "no sleepers" sort of spirit – and bristles with the kind of badass spirit that was the MC's calling card on every single track – nicely consistent, even though the set features production from a number of talents – Neptunes, Swiss Beatz, and others. Noreaga also opens the door to guest appearances from Nas, Busta Rhymes, Nature, Big Pun, and Jadakiss – but it's clear that the whole thing is definitely his own show, as you'll hear on titles that include include "Jump Off". "I Love My Life", "NORE", "Hed", "It's Not A Game", "40 Island", "Change", "Da Story", "Mathematics", "One Love", "Superthug"- and "Banned From TV". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Digital UndergroundSex Packets (180 gram blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Tommy Boy, 1990. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic debut from Digital Underground – an early 90s classic that opened the door for a whole new audience for hip hop at the time! The set effortlessly mixes old school funk with contemporary hip hop modes – and also maybe brings back in a bit of the party sort of vibe of early hip hop from New York – but with a definitely west coast spin here, given the heavy use of bass! The record opened the door for a whole new level of appreciation of older styles of soul and funk – while also giving both the group and hip hop in general a new platform from which to speak – one that was maybe seen by some as slightly commercial at the time, but which has gone on to be an undeniable part of the hip hop legacy! Titles include the hits "Doowutchyalike" and "Humpty Dance" – plus "Freaks of the Industry", "The Way We Swing", "Sex Packets", "Street Scene", "Packet Man", "Underwater Rimes (rmx)", "The New Jazz", "Rhymin On The Funk", "The Danger Zone", and "Packet Reprise". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition on clear blue vinyl – 2LPs, for better sound than the original!)

✨✧ Brand NubianOne For All (purple/green vinyl pressing – with bonus orange vinyl 7" single) ... LP
Elektra/Tommy Boy, 1990. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of those records that maybe snuck in a bit under the wire at the time of release – but a set that instantly went on to become a classic, and one of the greatest debuts of the early 90s! Not only is the production great – full of sophisticated samples and ways of putting them together that set a whole new standard for a generation – but Brand Nubian also found a way to take some of the energy of the Native Tongues' freshness, and turn it towards more serious themes – but all without the heavy-handedness that made some of their contemporaries date quickly. Hats off to Grand Puba, Sadat X, and Lord Jamar for such a great job right from the start – on titles that include "All For One", "Slow Down", "Drop The Bomb", "Concerto In X Minor", and 2 mixes of "Wake Up" (Stimulated Dummies mix and the penultimate reprise) – plus "Who Can Get Busy Like This Man", "Ragtime", "To The Right", "Dance To My Ministry", "Step To The Rear", "Try To Do Me", and "Dedication". LP, Vinyl record album
(One album is neon purple, the other is neon green – and the package comes with a bonus neon orange 7" single – with radio edits of "All For One", both voc and inst.)

✨✧ Queen LatifahAll Hail The Queen (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Tommy Boy, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The fantastic debut of Queen Latifah – a record that was done way before she was a star on the screen, and a set that also set a whole new standard for the female voice in hip hop as well! As you can tell by the cover, Latifah's got a proud, righteous vibe on the set – working with the Flavor Unit, and some especially great production from Mark The 45 King – who keeps things crisp and funky while the Queen serves up some fantastic lines! Other production work is by KRS One, Louis Vega, and Prince Paul – the last of whom handles the fantastic "Mama Gave Birth To The Soul Children", which features guest work from De La Soul. Other cuts include "Princess Of The Posse", "Ladies First", "Wrath Of My Madness", "Come Into My House", "Evil That Men Do", "A King & Queen Creation", "Latifah's Law", and "Dance For Me".

✨✧ House Of PainHouse Of Pain (clear with orange, green & yellow splatter vinyl pressing) ... LP
Tommy Boy, 1992. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The record that finally pushed so many blue-eyed doubters into the embrace of hip hop – and one of the few of its type that could deliver the same sort of punch as the best of the underground! In later years, the album's come to be associated more with fratboys than the group probably would have liked – but there's a raw, urgent power here that's hard to deny – especially in the skittish production that really draws on the nervous energy of the trio! DJ Lethal and Muggs' bouncing, head-nodding beats keep things moving with Everlast's rhymes standing up pretty well over the years – and titles include the anthemic "Jump Around", plus "House Of Pain Anthem", 'Come And Get Some Of This", "All My Love", "Put On Your Sh!t Kickers", "Shamrocks And Shenanigans", "Guess Who's Back", "Life Goes On", and "One For The Road".

VariousJazz In Jamaica – The Coolest Cats From The Alpha Boy's School ... LP
Honey Pie, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
Jazz in Jamaica, and a whole lot more – as the set brings together some key moments when the music was really shifting down in Kingston – still years before ska, rocksteady, and reggae, but with some definite differences in the way things come across! The Alpha Boy's School is a reference to the background of some of the key players – names that blossomed even more strongly in later years of Jamaican recording, with some who even achieved great fame recording over in the UK and Europe as well. But these are the giants at the start of their career – stepping out on some really great takes on more familiar jazz standards, but with a nicely inventive approach – as you'll hear on tunes that include "I'll Remember April" and "St Thomas" from Cecil Lloyd, "I Love Paris" by Lennie Hibbert, "Exodus" by Ernest Ranglin, "Rhythm" by Wilton Gaynair, "It Happnes" by The Workshop with Don Drummond, "Old Devil Moon" by Lance Hayward with Totlyn Jackson, "Let's Fall In Love" by Eric Grant, and "The Answer" by The Workshop with Tommy McCook. LP, Vinyl record album
