Low End Theory (2LP pressing)

LP (Item 37071) Jive, 1991 — Condition: Very Good+
Also available
Tribe Called Quest — Low End Theory ... LP 34.99
Tribe Called Quest — Low End Theory ... CD 6.99

The second album from the immortal Tribe Called Quest – one of the absolute essential hip hop LPs, and a record that should be an anyone's shortlist of the best albums in several subsections of hip hop – just a straight up masterpiece anyway you cut it. The album is so high up on the ladder, we're a loss to add any fresh insight o the critical consensus, so just get it. Classics one after another, steeped in bass note snapping, head nodding funk jazz beatcraft of the first order! "Buggin Out", "Excursions", "Rap Promoter", "Verses From The Abstract", "Check The Rhyme", "Everything Is Fair", "Jazz (We've Got)", "What?", "Scenario" and more.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(2016 remaster with black and white labels.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Too Short's third album for Jive and sixth overall, still riding at a near peak level, since Born To Mack and Life Is...pretty much made a legend while still in his early 20s!

How Ya Like Me Now
Jive, 1987. Near Mint-
Kool Moe Dee's second album – a benchmark moment in mid-to-late 80s solo rap – and definitely worth a post millennium revisit! The title cut is a prime relic of the Kool Moe Dee vs. LL Cool J battles back in the day, and that along with "Wild Wild West" are bonafide classic ... LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic meeting of the minds – as director Jim Jarmusch makes a film that's a nod to the old martial arts films of the 70s that inspired the Wu-Tang Clan in their music – and RZA gets a chance to contribute to the soundtrack, with help from the Clan as well! The music is maybe the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Universal, 1998. Very Good 2LP
Mostly produced by Wyclef, with a couple of beats by Clark Kent, A Kid Called Roots and Salaam Remi, and a few nice cuts like "Second Round KO", one of the tracks in his battle with LL, that has stood up well to the test of time. Other tracks include "Patriots", "I Honor ... LP, Vinyl record album
Profile, 1988. Near Mint-
A once underappreciated later effort from the mighty Run DMC – with slightly harder hitting beats, and an overall tougher style – and it's ultimately the crew's last solid beginning-to-end LP! A worthy set that includes "Mary, Mary", "Beats To The Rhyme", "Run's ... LP, Vinyl record album
