Brother Arab

LP (Item 81612) Orpheus, 1989 — Condition: Sealed

An obscure one from the west coast electro innovator. 10 tracks total, including "She's Got A Big Posse", "Never Caught Slippin", "It's A Dope Thang" and "It's Time To Bone".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(NOTE – Still sealed with hype stickers, but cracked along the spine and halfway across the bottom seam, and half missing shrink in back.)


This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Kaos & Mystro

Outcast Vol 1
World One, 1989. Near Mint-
Nice hyped beats meets knowledge-style rhymes circa late 80s. Plus, all the songs were composed using the "Compu-Beat-Syntronic" process. Mystro does a nice job on the 1's and 2's. 10 tracks in all: "Mystro On The Flex", "Mystro On The Flex (dog mix)", "Trapped ... LP, Vinyl record album

Planet Patrol

Planet Patrol
Tommy Boy, 1983. Very Good
More of an EP than an LP, at least by today's standards. Planet Patrol features 5 musicians, but the real stars here are producers Arthur Baker and John Robie, who give this album a nice electro sound. With the classic early Tommy Boy single "Play At Your Own Risk", plus "Cheap ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jive, 1991/1992. Near Mint-
The first full length classic from Spice 1 – an MC who came up in the wake of Too Short on the west coast, but has definitely found his own style by the time of this set!

... LP, Vinyl record album
Delicious Vinyl, 1989. Very Good+
The crossover rap classic from Tone-Loc! The biggest couple of hits are still ubiquitous decades later – and Loc himself, with that raspy voice and smooth charisma, still stands as one of more unique voices of late 80s hip hop. Loc-ed After Dark is also an early proving ground for the soon- ... LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis Mayfield

Back To The World
Curtom, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Pure genius from Curtis Mayfield – and a record that's got all the righteousness and political power you might guess from the cover! The album burns with a sense of empowerment that's every bit the best strength of Curtom in the 70s – a sublime blend of heavy soul, funky undercurrents, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Fantasy, 1975. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
Sweet funky 70s work from Cannonball Adderley – a record that has him revisiting older tunes from his early soul jazz years – but in ways that give them a whole new electric vibe overall! The album's actually Cannonball's last full studio set, but it's also one of his greatest too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac Hayes

Hot Buttered Soul
Enterprise, 1969. Very Good
Amazing stuff from Isaac Hayes! Although Ike had first appeared on LP with the album "Introducing", this was the first record to really expose his true soul genius – and it was also the first release on Ike's successful sub-label at Stax, Enterprise Records. The record shows that ... LP, Vinyl record album
