We're In This Together

LP (Item 7582) Profile, 1989 — Condition: Very Good

WC and DJ Aladdin working together as the producer/DJ duo Low Profile – definitely paving the way for more famous west coast rap to come – on a still strong, long under-appreciated album on Profile! WC would go on to make a bigger name for himself with Madd Circle, West Side Connection and solo endeavors, but man, this early LP with the underrated Aladdin not only feels live a pivotal bridge from the mid-to-late 80s gritty west coast rap sound to the G Funk to come, it's simply a strong record that stands firmly on it's own. Includes the standouts "Funky Song" and "Pay Ya Dues", plus "Easy Money", "Keep Em' Flowin", "Aladdin's On A Rampage", "How Ya Livin" and "Make Room For The Dub B U".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Profile, 1988. Very Good
A once underappreciated later effort from the mighty Run DMC – with slightly harder hitting beats, and an overall terse style (hence the title) that was always more effective than it got credit for at the time – and it's ultimately the crew's last solid beginning-to-end LP!

Jive, 1993. Near Mint- 2LP
Too Short riding high still in the early 90s – still pretty close to peak level and riding it in all it's profane, funky glory – carrying on the blaxploition vibe of Shorty The Pimp and the more straight forward, stripped down bass, beats and lyrical grit of his late 80s breakthroughs. ...

The best music in years from RZA – the man who introduced styliized martial arts soundtrack funk to hardcore hip hop – and the soundtrack to his own damn stylized martial arts film, The Man With The Iron Fists!
