LP, Vinyl record album

(€4.16 || £3.67 || ¥555) (approx.)

Early instrumental electro tracks produced by the Willesden Dodgers. A couple have a sound similar to some of the Whodini and Soul Sonic Force tracks from around that time.. (There isn't any scratching on the tracks – the "Scratch" in the title means the spare production makes the tracks suitable for scratching...) Twelve 5-6 minute tracks, in the 100-120 bpm range. (Cover has a cut corner and some stuck-on paper at the bottom.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Ghetto Music: The Blueprint Of Hip Hop
Jive, 1989. Good+
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS, perfectly raw beats and overall peak end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jive Rhythm Trax Vol 1
Jive, 1982. Very Good
Classic electro production from the Willesden Dodgers on these instrumentals released here as part of Jive's Rhythm Tracks series. Eight 4-5 minute tracks, all named after some of our favorite BPM's – "130", "114", "122", "108", "102", "1 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jive, 1986. Very Good+
We may be in the minority here, but we're still fans of that mid-80's Pop Art sound. The album is a collection of his earlier single on Pop Art, with "Bring The Beat Back", "Stupid Fresh" and the novelty cuts "Yo Mutha" and "Do The Fila" the answer to Joeski ... LP, Vinyl record album
Priority, 1990. Very Good+
A hard-nosed, funky masterpiece from Ice Cube – who hooks up with Bomb Squad for the incredible production! When Ice Cube left NWA he took a lot of the more sobering lyrical aspects of that landmark crew with him, and with the addition of the Bomb Squad's cut & paste rhythms and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tino's Breaks Vol 1
Tino Corp, 1998. Sealed
Instrumental hip hop breaks, mixed with the odd goof vocal samples for sampling. The beats are pretty decent, with lots of good bass-heavy beats. Created by video director Ben Stokes and Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto. LP, Vinyl record album
Biz Never Sleeps
Cold Chillin/Warner, 1989. Very Good
Biz's second LP from 1989 – what can we tell you about the Biz that you don't already know? As far as we're concerned there's a lot of MC's that could learn a lesson or two from the Biz, and producers too. Good time middle school hip hop, with nice sample based production and a great sense ... LP, Vinyl record album
Profile, 1988. Very Good+
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
Delicious Vinyl, 1989. Very Good+
The crossover rap classic from Tone-Loc! Temporary pop phenom this is not – the biggest couple of hits are still ubiquitous decades later – and Loc himself, with that raspy voice and smooth charisma, still stands as one more unique voices of late 80s hip hop. On top of those ... LP, Vinyl record album
Me & Joe
