All Balls Don't Bounce

LP (Item 54179) Capitol, 1995 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP
Originally: 39.99
Aceyalone's solo effort from the mid 90's, after the Freestyle Fellowship's major label LP "Inner City Griots" failed to make an impact in the larger, commercial world of Hip Hop. Production was handled by a lot of the more underground LA folks of the same period: Fat Jack, the Nonce, Mumbles & Vic Hop, and Abstract Rude of the FF makes a guest appearance. "Mic Check" & "All Balls" were the singles, but this one's filled with memorable tracks, when more adventurous hip hop was a lot less common: "Anywhere You Go", "Greatest Show On Earth" & "B-Boy Kingdom". 15 cuts in all, counting the couple of interludes, and because this was a promo-only vinyl pressing (during that black patch of the 90's when so much wasn't pressed on vinyl), many of the tracks are clean edits for radio play.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(NOTE – Promo in a stickered gatefold sleeve.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Who knew you could coax this many great jams out of the 808 and 909?

One of the best entries in RCA's classic "our man in..." series – and a nice one by Perez that has him breaking the format of his other releases for the label.
