MCA, 1999. 3LP (reissue)
LP ... On September 27, 2019
A landmark effort from the Legendary Roots Crew – one that a lot of folks hail as their greatest album – and there's a strong case to be made for that! Jazzy soul backdrops and lyrics that are both personally and culturally reflective – and it's also the best produced Roots album ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop LP)

Louis Moholo

Spirits Rejoice
Ogun/OTOroku (UK), 1978. (reissue)
LP ... About September 25, 2019
One of the strongest 70s statements from ex-Blue Notes drummer Louis Moholo – recorded in the company of fellow expatriots and UK avant jazzers that include Johnny Dyani, Evan Parker, Kenny Wheeler, Nick Evans, Radu Malfatti, and Harry Miller. The album shifts easily between strongly ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Capitol, 2004. 2LP (reissue)
LP ... On October 4, 2019
A masterful later album by the Beastie Boys – who always preferred to put out a great record every five or six years, than a sub par album every 2 or 3! All these years after Paul's Boutique, when the world of difficult, expensive sample clearance could've kill the layers of pop pastiche ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop LP)
Grand Royal, 1994. (reissue)
LP ... On October 4, 2019
What can we say? The Beasties continue their manic trio hip hop style mixed with the live jazz/funk/garage (as in rock, not house) sound and keyboards by Money Mark – featuring a bunch of their classic material, and underappreciated album cuts. The Beasties could really do no wrong at this ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop LP)
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1969. (reissue)
LP ... About August 15, 2019
The rare 3rd album by Gilberto Gil, and a key piece of the Tropicalia puzzle – one of the most wildly experimental albums from those years, and Gil's last before going into exile! The sound is much more electric than his other albums from the late 60's – and the production, songwriting ... LP, Vinyl record album (Brazil LP)

Ice T, MC Shan, Big Daddy Kane, & Others

Colors – Original Soundtrack (silver vinyl pressing)
Warner, 1988. (reissue)
LP ... On October 11, 2019
One of the first good hip hop soundtracks, and a motherlode of great cuts like "Paid In Full (7 minute Cold Cut remix)" by Eric B & Rakim, "Butcher Shop" by Kool G Rap, "Colors" by Ice T, "Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste" by M.C. Shan, and "Go On ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop LP)
Blue Note, 1956. (reissue)
LP ... On October 11, 2019
A wonderful pairing of this German pianist and American tenor star Zoot Sims – and an album that may well be the greatest that Jutta Hipp ever cut! Hipp was one of the rising stars of the German postwar jazz scene in the 50s – and although she issued other American albums in the decade ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Herbie Hancock

Inventions & Dimensions
Blue Note, 1963. (reissue)
LP ... On October 11, 2019
A really unique little record from Herbie Hancock – one that's almost completely improvised over Latin percussion! The setup is quite spare – and quite different than Herbie's other Blue Note work – and the group features improvised backgrounds by bassist Paul Chambers and 2 ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Joe Henderson

In N Out
Blue Note, 1964. (reissue)
LP ... On October 11, 2019
A stone killer from the early Blue Note years of tenorist Joe Henderson – a key example of why the label had so much faith in him right from the start, and why Henderson's horn was quite different than so many other players of the 60s! There's a sharp edge here, but there's also a soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Grand Royal/Capitol, 1995. (reissue)
LP ... On October 4, 2019
10-track EP including three different recordings of "Root Down" from Ill Communication, based on the Jimmy Smith's jazz/funk of the same name – the "Free Zone" mix, LP version and "PP Balloon" mix. Also some live versions of tracks from Check Your Head – ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop LP)
Capitol, 1989. (reissue)
LP ... On October 4, 2019
The Beasties' masterpiece – and one of the original nightmares for sampling opponents everywhere – the cut & paste hip hop classic Paul's Boutique! The Dust Brothers unapologetic way of weaving very famous samples with soul, funk and film score obscurities would steal the show if ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop LP)

RCA/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1974. (reissue)
LP ... About August 15, 2019
Wonderful work by Nina – the kind of record that once made purists turn up their noses, but which is now being rediscovered as a unique jazz/soul crossover album, filled with loads of nice moments! The instrumentation's pretty darn interesting – and includes sitar, harp, Spanish guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists LP)
RCA/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1976. (reissue)
LP ... About September 20, 2019
Weldon Irvine's last album for a major label – and a key set that marks the debut of the legendary Don Blackman! Irvine's still very much in charge of the session, but Blackman's emerging here with the strength that would show up on his later soul sessions – singing lead vocals on some ...

Do Not Pass Me By – Vol 2
Universal Awareness/Numero, 1973. (reissue)
CD ... About August 20, 2019
The even more obscure second volume to the great soul/gospel classic Do Not Pass Me By – and like the first, the product of a wonderfully spiritual setting on Chicago's south side – music created in the church, but with all the same vibe as the hippest secular soul coming from the Windy ... CD (Gospel CD)
Third Man, 1969. 4LP
LP ... About August 20, 2019
A fantastic document of the first-ever Ann Arbor Blues Festival – the start of a great event that would blossom into other styles of music in the 70s, but which stood as a strong blues-based event in its initial year of 1969! In some ways, the three day series of concerts is a roots answer ... LP, Vinyl record album (Blues LP)

LP ... About August 20, 2019
Sublime spiritual jazz from Strata East – one of the label's rarest recordings, and one of its hippest too! The set has an incredibly righteous feel – a blend of keyboards, saxes, guitar, percussion, and vocals that steps off with a very deep feel – one that's heavy on the best ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Lyman Woodard Organization

Live At JJ's Lounge 1974
P-Vine (Japan), 1974.
LP ... About August 20, 2019
A rare live performance from the legendary Lyman Woodard Organization – captured here at the height of their powers in the 70s! The Organization has a really unique approach to their groove – one that starts in jazz, but moves quickly into funk – with a spirit that you'd find in ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Liston/P-Vine (Japan), 1983. (reissue)
LP ... About August 21, 2019
A great set of mellow soul from the start of the 80s – not the Positive Force of "We Got The Funk" fame, but a different groove that has a nicely smooth groove! The style here is halfway between soul and AOR, but handled with an indie charm that really keeps things compelling ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)

B-Boy/Traffic, 1986. (reissue)
LP ... On August 23, 2019
One of the best debuts in the history of hip hop – and one of the most important albums the genre ever produced! Criminal Minded is landmark for a number of reasons. Among the biggest is, of course, that it was recorded with the late great DJ Scott La Rock – and he was soon to fall ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop LP)
Profile/Get On Down, 1988. (reissue)
LP ... On August 23, 2019
An underappreciated later effort from the mighty Run DMC – with slightly harder hitting beats, and an overall effectively terse style (hence the title) – and really the crew's last solid full length! You don't need us to tell you that Tougher Than Leather isn't the seminal classic ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop LP)
Profile/Get On Down, 1985. (reissue)
LP ... On August 23, 2019
Run-DMC's great second album, with rock hard production by Russell Simmons and classic cuts! It's fascinating to listen to this album all these years later, with the knowledge that this hungry hip hop act from Queens was so soon to conquer the world. Great stuff from a legendary crew!

Verve/Modern Harmonic, Late 60s. (reissue)
LP ... On August 23, 2019
An insane crazy mix of "eastern" instrumentation (sitars, tablas, etc) with groovy pop sounds of the late 60's – a perfect album in the Verve tradition, with some wonderful jazzy touches! Alan Lorber set the whole thing up – and peppered it with some great instrumentation, ... LP, Vinyl record album (Now Sound LP)
Sundazed, 1971.
LP ... About August 23, 2019
A fantastic live statement from the matured Byrds – a later version of the group that had already gone through their psych, country, and folk stages of the 60s – and who reemerge here in a way that really brings together the best of them! Roger McGuinn is at the helm, maybe a better ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)

A very early date as a leader by McCoy Tyner – cut at a time when he was making big waves in the John Coltrane Quartet, but also sounding plenty darn great on his own! The group here's a trio – with Coltrane associates Art Davis on bass and Elvin Jones on drums – and the warm ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Archie Shepp

Fire Music
Impulse, 1965. (reissue)
LP ... On August 23, 2019
Fantastic stuff – easily one of Archie Shepp's greatest albums, and certainly one of the pivotal points of 60s avant garde jazz! The album features Shepp leading a crack "new thing" line up that includes Ted Curson on trumpet, Marion Brown on alto, Joe Chambers on drums, Reggie ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Impulse, 1965. (reissue)
LP ... On August 23, 2019
A tremendous little album from Sonny Rollins – one of his most sharp-edged sessions of the mid 60s, and a bold departure from some of his previous work for RCA! The album has a crackling sense of energy that more than lives up to the exclamation point in the title – a starker quality ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Impulse, 1963. (reissue)

The title's exploding with Mingus, and the album is too – a completely classic effort for Impulse Records that's easily one of Charles' best of the 60s! Things are reigned in somewhat from the Mingus years at Atlantic or Candid, but the sound is still great – almost more focused than ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

A brilliant album of Latiny grooves from Diz!

Virgin, 1998.
