Reachin' (A New Refutation Of Time & Space)

CD (Item 548526) Pendulum/Elektra, 1993 — Condition: Used
$4.99 ...

CD

A jazz-inspired hip hop uberclassic! While Digable Planets might not have pioneered the jazzy hip hop vibe – we might nod 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, laidback rhyme style that dug into the abstract lyrical realm more than any of their predecessors. Still sounds fresh today, too! Includes "Where I'm From", "It's Good To Be Here", "What Cool Breezes Do", "Time & Space (A New Refutation Of)", "Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat)", "Escapism (Gettin Free)", "Pacifics", "Appointment At The Fat Clinic", "Swoon Units", "Last Of The Spiddyocks", "Examination Of What", "Nickel Bags", and "Jimmi Diggin Cats".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Digable Planets

Blowout Comb
Pendulum, 1994. Used
A lasting classic from Digable Planets, and a record that really helped push the bar forward for hip hop at the time – at a level that's still kept this one strong all these many years later! Digable Planets weren't the first group to bring in some influence from jazz to their work – ... CD

Kanye West

Late Registration
Def Jam, 2005. Used
We loved the debut as much as the rest of the world did, but this one's an easier listen from beginning to end. The production is tight, the guests earn their spots, and the whole thing's furiously soulful. Much is being made of LA hipster/orch pop troubadour Jon Brion's co-production, but this ... CD
Def Jam, 2006. Used
Leave it to career iconoclast Nas to declare Hip Hop Is Dead on his Def Jam debut – a defiantly straight up hip hop record that's one of the leanest full lengths he's delivered since his abbreviated debut masterpiece! Hip Hop Is Dead, not surprisingly, is actually a very lively LP – ... CD
Madlib Invazion, 2011. Used
The supposed conclusion in the madly epic Medicine Show series from Madlib – Number 12, and it's a hazy, funky, rawly brilliant batch of hip hop remixes from the mid 00s onward – 60+ minutes and 30+ unlisted tracks that's pretty much quintessential Madlib hip hop! We're not going to ... CD

Slum Village

Yes
Ne'Astra, 2015. Used
Slum Village co-founder T3 and producer Young RJ deliver – with some J Dilla beats, along with the solid work of RJ – strong line up of guests appearances, including Bilal, De La Soul, Phife of Tribe Called Quest, BJ The Chicago Kid and more! Titles include "Love Is" with ... CD

Czarface (Inspectah Deck + 7L & Esoteric)

Fistful Of Peril
Silver Age, 2016. Used
Action-packed post millennium hip hop from Czarface – the increasingly impressive team of Wu veteran Inspectah Deck with 7L & Esoteric! Czarface's style is fresh take on some the wilder underground/grindhouse cinema, comic books and otherwise fantastically-inspired hip hop of Wu Tang Clan ... CD

Killah Priest

Heavy Mental
Geffen, 1998. Used
One of the better Wu side projects from 1998, includes "Fake MCs", "Cross My Heart", "Tai Chi", "If You Don't Know" & "Science Project", plus Killah Priest's version of the GZA classic "BIBLE (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth)". CD

Public Enemy

Fear Of A Black Planet
Def Jam, 1990. Used
PE's third LP, and their last with full on Bomb Squad production. With classics like "Fight The Power", "Burn Hollywood Burn", "Welcome To The Terrordome", "Power To The People", "911 Is A Joke" and the title track. CD

Run The Jewels

RTJ3
Mass Appeal, 2017. Used
A vital third act in the thankfully ongoing RTJ saga! The first album was unsurprisingly excellent, but surprisingly popular. The second album not only turned out to be a bigger hit, it was also a creative peak for both El-P and Killer Mike – which is really saying something. So the stakes ... CD

Edu Lobo & Chico Buarque

Album De Teatro
BMG, 1997. Used
Although the copyright on this CD says 1997, we've got a feeling that it's from an earlier time – judging by the look of Edu and Chico on the cover. The set's a haunting blend of the styles of these two masters of Brazilian music – with a full orchestra backing up the tracks, and a ... CD
