Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five — Message ... LP 14.99

The classic debut album by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five – one of the pioneering groups in hip hop -history- not that we didn't need to tell you that! With prototypical party jams and the original conscious rap landmark "The Message", all over old school grooves laid down under Sylvia Robinson's watchful eye by the Sugar Hill rhythm section with Doug Wimbish, Skip McDonald, Keith LeBlanc and crew. That funky depth keeps it fresh to this today, with deeper classics like "Scorpio" and "It's Nasty", plus "Dreamin", "It's A Shame" and "You Are". (Original pressing. Cover has a gold promo stamp.)  © 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.

Music Madness
Sleeping Bag, 1986. Sealed
The follow up to the classic first LP! Listening to Kurtis Mantronik productions all of these years later is a definite educational experience, given the huge influence the crisp synth sounds had on the future of hip hop – not only as a matter of necessity, given the cost of sample clearance ...

Trendz
Mad Sounds, 1993. Good+
The one and only full length by early 90s trio Trends Of Culture – who may have not been trendy enough to bust out in a big way at the time – but this slept on gem is a buried treasure! Largely a self-contained unit here, with production by the group's MOL – with an remix assist ... 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
Raising Hell
Profile, 1986. Very Good
The massive third album from Run DMC – made at the top of their game – an pivotal effort that brought them to peak popularity and helped break hip hop in a huge way in the pop culture landscape!

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
