Thug Motivation – The Collection (clear vinyl pressing)

LP (Item 131846) Def Jam, 2021 — Condition: Sealed
Not the Let's Get It record, but instead a Thug Motivation collection of classics – a package that's overflowing with hits – including "Trap Star", "And Then What", "Soul Survivor", "My Hood", "Go Getta", "I Luv It", "Lose My Mind", "Way Too Gone", "Supafreak", "I Do", "MLK Blvd", and "Leave You Alone".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sealed copy. RSD 2021.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Public Enemy, EU & Others

Do The Right Thing – Soundtrack
Motown, 1989. Near Mint-
The classic soundtrack to Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing – lead, of course, by Public Enemy's "Fight The Power" – and beyond that is a pretty wonderful, and not always as intense cross-section of some of the finer urban soul and New Jack Swing, circa '89, breezy vocal-centric ...

Sire, 1989. Near Mint-
Ice T's third album, and a set that still has all the nicely biting style of his early best! The approach here is great – as political as the cover implies, but with a nice sense of wit, too – that quality that already made Ice stand so far apart from others who were getting mired down ...

Warner, 1988. Near Mint-
10 tracks from the late 80s crew headed by Ice T, including Low Profile "Think You Can Hang?", Everlast "Syndication", Donald Dee "Name Of The Game", Toddy Tee "I Need A Rolex", the Spinmasters "Bustin' loose" and others, mostly produced by Ice T ... LP, Vinyl record album
Delicious Vinyl, 1989. Near Mint-
The crossover rap classic from Tone-Loc! The biggest couple of hits are still ubiquitous decades later – and Loc himself, with that raspy voice and smooth charisma, still stands as one of more unique voices of late 80s hip hop. Loc-ed After Dark is also an early proving ground for the soon- ... LP, Vinyl record album
Next Plateau, 1988. Near Mint-
Salt N Pepa still in their best early mode – working with Hurby Luv Bug, and turning out tunes with a nice sort of indie-level street charm! Although countless others copped the poppy hip hop groove of the pair at the time, Salt N Pepa were still the first, and still managed to do it best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hard As Hell
Profile, 1987. Near Mint-
While this set was produced by Simon Harris, and there's not a ton of stuff to get excited about here, there is the nice ragga crossover track by Asher D & Daddy Freddy "Ragamuffin Hip Hop", and the break cut-up "These Are The Brakes" by DJ Hanway plus CJ Mackintosh "The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Delicious Vinyl, 1992. Near Mint- 2LP
Essential 1992 classic by The Pharcyde, the group's high water mark, and one of the greatest hip hop albums of the era!

Elektra/Modern Classics, 1993. Near Mint- 2LP
A jazz-inspired hip hop uberclassic! While Digable Planets might not have pioneered the jazzy hip hop vibe – we mightnod to the Native Tongues scene and DJ Premier's productions in the late 80s for that – Digables set a new standard with breezy but head nodding production and mellow, ...

Shirley Scott

Everybody Loves A Lover
Impulse, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold
A simple formula, but one of Shirley's best records from the mid 60s, and a tight batch of quartet tracks that also features Stanley Turrentine on tenor. The title cut's a classic jazz stepper in Chicago, with a subtly loping groove that works pretty darn well. Other tracks include "Blue ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kitty & The Haywoods

Love Shock
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+
Nice lost bit of Chicago female soul, produced by the Ohio Players, and with a sound that sounds a lot like their Mercury albums of the time – that is, with some hard slap-bass funk on most cuts, and some slower spacier sounds on others. Includes one of our fave tracks these days, the spacey ... LP, Vinyl record album
