Gal CostaAo Vivo ... CD
Trama (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $4.99
A great little live album from Gal Costa – recorded as part of a concert performance for her Hoje (Today) album, but featuring a fair bit of other work as well! The style here is similar to Hoje – small group instrumentation, relatively spontaneous, with a good undercurrent of jazz – all of which really helps Gal break from some of the stiffer modes of her later years, and hit a warmly wonderful style that's filled with life and joy! The group on stage is relatively small, and the nature of the recording keeps things somewhat intimate – and Gal's vocals are very firmly in the lead throughout. Titles include "Antonico", "Jurei", "Hoje", "Luto", "Juventude Transvida", "Meu Nome E Gal", "Coisa Mais Linda/As Time Goes By", "Mar E Sol/Aguas De Marco", and "Santana". CD

OttoChangez Tout – Samba Pra Burro Dissecado (box version) ... CD
Trama (Brazil), 2000. Used 2CD ... $12.99
One of Brazil's most groundbreaking artists is back again – with a cool 2CD set that reworks his famous Samba Pra Burro album! The set's a blinding mix of beats and electronics, with a sound that's as fresh as Otto's original album – and although we have to admit that most of the producers and remixers are Brazilians that we've never heard before, that's what makes the album stand out from the ever-growing pack of other remix project on the market. In many ways, the whole thing pushes Otto's mixed up musical version even further than before – as these producers are free to take some real chances with the original ideas, pulling out some of the most interesting elements of the tracks and turning them into whole new tunes. Packaged in a lovely box set, with 2 slim CD cases and a full color booklet – and featuring 29 tracks in all! Remixers include Friendtronik, Nude, Muchacho Alves, Ram Science, Edu K, Apollo 9, Autolord, and Edgard – and titles include "O Celular De nana", 'Bob", "Distraida Pra Morte", "TV A Cabo", "Renault/Peugeot", "Low", "Cafe Preto", and "Changez Tout". CD
(Out of print. Limited edition to 5000 copies – and numbered too!)

OttoSem Gravidade ... CD
Trama (Brazil), 2003. Used ... $12.99
Another stunner from Otto – one of the most exciting Brazilian artists working today! The album's actually got a style that's more song-structured and tuneful than some of his other albums – moving a bit more towards straighter rock, but still with enough of the enigmatic production and quirky electronics that have always made his albums such a treat. The rhythms and instrumentation are enough to carry the album alone, but even better is Otto's wonderful voice – instantly captivating despite any language barriers, and getting better with age, in a style that reminds us of the vocal growth experience by Cateno Veloso as the 70s progressed. Titles include "Lavanda", "Nebulosas", "Amarelo Manga", "Amargosa", "Dedo De Deus", "Pra Quem Ta Quente", and "Tento Entender". CD

BatidaDois ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
The second album from Batida, and even more crackling than the first – bristling beats, bubbling electronics, and a strongly Brazilian undercurrent – all blended together in the best contemporary styles we've been hearing from the Soundway label of late! Vocals are by a shifting lineup of singers, but there's a core sound that always holds fast – thanks to creative production from Pedro Coquenao, who mixes favela-styled elements with a more thoughtful, intellectual approach that almost reminds us of the late Trama Records at their best. Things are nicely skittish overall – and titles include "Luxo", "Bantu", "Cooking Ugali", "Fica Atento", "La Vai Maria", "Chat With Mr Ochieng", and "Ceu". CD

Dr OctagonDr Octagonecologyst (3D lenticular cover) ... LP
Bulk/Geffen, 1996. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $31.99 35.99
Genius from the mind of Kool Keith aka Big Willie Smith aka Poppa Large aka Dr. Octagon. Since his days with Ultramagnetics, no one has mastered the abstract lyrical style like Kool Keith, self-proclaimed inventor of all rhyme styles. 20 tracks, with dope atmospheric features by the Automator and scratches by the legendary Q-Bert, including "Earth People", "I Got To Tell You", "Wild And Crazy", ""Waiting List (DK Snadow/Automator Mix)", "No Awareness", "Biology 101", "Technical Difficulties", "Blue Flowers", "A Visit To The Gynecologist", "Bear Witness" and more.

Hank MobleyHank Mobley & His All Stars ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $13.99
A very unique album from Hank Mobley – one that has him working alongside Milt Jackson, in an unusual format that mixes the soulful Mobley tenor with some well-crafted work on vibes! The "all star" title is certainly appropriate here – as Mobley and Jackson are joined in a quintet by Horace Silver on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – almost bringing in an early Jazz Messengers sensibility to the record, but also hitting more of a looser, laidback blowing session approach. There's less of the tightness of other Mobley sessions from the time, and the record has the players really feeling each other out in the studio – with the sort of spontaneity you might hear in a Prestige or Savoy album from the time. Tracks are long, and titles include "Ultramarine", "Don't Walk", "Lower Stratosphere", and "Mobley's Musings". CD

Tim DogSucker's Never Play/It's My Time – TR Love's Ultra 7 Series (previously unreleased – limited edition colored vinyl) ... 7-inch
Black Pegasus, 1990. New Copy (pic cover)... $35.99
A couple masterful, never released dawn of the 90s Tim Dog tracks – produced by Ced-Gee & TR Love – taken from TR Love's own Ultramagnetic archives! "Sucker's Never Play" is a furiously funky cut that rolls at fast clip, and with inventive, breathless rhymes by Tim. Classic level! "It's My Time" on the flip is just as great, with a slightly more measured approach, but it's ulitimately just as tough. An obscure demo that's as supremely strong as the officially released cuts back in the day! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Orange vinyl – and limited to just 300 copies!)

Madison Square Garage, 1987/1988. Used ... $3.99
Rare 80s funky east coast hip hop – great tracks by Most Wanted, The Heartbeat Brothers, Sport G & Mastermind, Phase And Rhythm and and others – great tracks cut for the Enjoy, Elite, Street Walk, Pelon and other labels with production throughout by the late Paul C! Paul C is better known for producing or mixing benchmark tracks for the Ultramags, Super Lover Cee and Casanova Rudd, and many more, but this more obscure material is super dope, too – a tight compilation from Madison Square Garage. Titles include "Good Old Days" by Most Wanted, "Time To Get Paid", "Can We Do This", "Bring The Bassline" and more by Heartbeat Brothers, "Louder" and "Live" by Sport G & Mastermind, "Brainfood" and "Hyperactive" by Phase And Rhythm, and more.

Two tracks from Common Sense. "Like They Used To Say" is produced by Dug Infinite, with a sample of the JB's "Pass the Peas" for the chorus, and Maseo of De La cutting in samples from over a dozen hip hop classics – from Ultramagnetic to EZ & Troup to MC Lyte to T-La Rock. "1.9.9.9." uses more mellow production by Hi-Tek, with vocals from Sadat X. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ DJ Moe LoveSlaughterhouse Cartel EP ... CD
Threshold, 2000. Used ... Out Of Stock
It seems like Ced Gee and Moe Love are getting an awful lot of mileage out of the renewed interest in Kool Keith and Ultramag. There's an Ultramagnetic MC's logo on the cover to this single, and that's how it was sold to us, but except for the fact that Moe Love was involved, we don't see the connection. The beats are tight, but there's no excuse for anything but these days. The songs are "Talk Of The Town" (clean, inst), "More Of The raw" (clean, inst), "Gun Clappin" (clean, inst, dirty) and a couple of shorter interludes. CD

✨✧ T La RockLyrical King (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Fresh, 1987. Used ... Out Of Stock
A mid 80s classic from T La Rock! T is still best known for his dynamite Rick Rubin-produced single "It's Yours", but he brought a lot of great stuff to this full length from a couple years later – in a style that clearly influenced cats from the Ultramags, to Kool G Rap and many others! He sports the brainy lyricism that still rocks a party and that incredible period production aesthetic. Co-produced by Mantronik, with scratches by Louie Lou, beat box by Greg Nice, and appearances by Special K and MC Serch. 10 original album tracks, including "Lyrical King", "Back To Burn", "Three Minutes Of Beat Box", "Bust These Lyrics", "This Beat kicks", "Big Beat In London" and "It's Time To Chill". CD version includes four bonus tracks "It's Yours (12" radio mix-1984)", "Breakdown (12" version-1985)", "Breaking Bells (12" version-1986)" and "Bass Machine (12" version 1986)". CD

✨✧ Ultramagnetic MCsFour Horsemen ... CD
Wild Pitch, 1993. Used ... Out Of Stock
The last of the classic from the initial years of the Ultramagnetic MCs. The lyrics are still in the abstract style the Ultramags are famous for, but this time they're a little less manic – despite Kool Keith dropping his trademark madness. Ced Gee's production is still up to par to say the least – this one still sounds great! Tracks include "Two Brothers With Checks (San Francisco, Harvey)", "One, Two, One Two", "We Are The Horsemen", "Saga Of Dandy, The Devil & Day" (about Negro League baseball), "Adventures of Herman's Lust", and "Delta Force II." 14 tracks in all.

✨✧ Ultramagnetic MCsFunk Your Head Up ... CD
Mercury, 1992. Used ... Out Of Stock
Follow up to Critical Beatdown with solid, funky production by Ced Gee and Moe Love, and Kool Keith just being Kool Keith – giving it some crazy charm that a lot people just weren't ready for at the time! Their first major label record, which seemed to take forever to come out, we recall a lot of folks being disappointed with this at the time – but there's ultimately a lot of quality cuts here! "Poppa Large", "Chorus Line Pt. 2", "Make It Happen" were favorite cuts from the outset, and with the benefit of hindsight and without burden of expections, other great ones include "Funk Radio", "Stop Jockin Me", "Bust The Facts" and "I Like Your Style" with many other standout moments. It's got a whopping 23 in all, and other tracks include "MC Champion", "Go For Yourz", "Message From The Boss", "Pluckin Cards", "You Ain't Real", "Moe Love On The ! & 2" and "Porno Star". CD
