Songs Without Words Vol 1 (Instrumentals)

LP (Item 924428) Low Budget, 2013 — Condition: Very Good+

High-minded hip hop instrumentals from the reliable Kev Brown – and the first of what we're hoping will be a steady series of Songs Without Words volumes Low Budget Records! Personal favorites of Kev's as well as some previously unreleased beats – with head nodding funky beats all the way – and plenty of unexpected and unpredicatable textures – including some jazzy guitar textures, trippy vocal samples and many more deft touches. Solid stuff from a master! Includes "1% (Out The MPC)", "Life (Remix)", Batida", Look", "Another Private Conversation", "Come Back", "Whoever Programmed Us (Remix)", "Armada Latina (Remix)" and more. 13 in all.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Orange vinyl pressing.)

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.

XXX
Fool's Gold, 2011. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A raucous set from Detroit rhymer Danny Brown that finds that was poised to bust out pretty big like – and he's got the goods. His voice is unique, to say the least – with a kind of odd drawl that suits the semi-hinged, profane and undeniably skillful rhymes. Production by Frank Dukes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Celluloid, 1984. Very Good+
Bill Laswell's hip hop alter ego, but just from the beats side of the equation. A half dozen instrumental tracks, all DMX, 8-bit sampler and some scratching here and there.

Great US issue of 2 different albums that Webster recorded in Europe near the end of his life – Blow Ben Blow and For The Guv'nor.

Stevie Wonder

In Square Circle
Tamla, 1985. Very Good Gatefold
Mid 80s, and while never that bad (nothing Stevie does is ever terrible – well, except for "Don't Drive Drunk"!), the record lacks that certain greatness that you'll find on even the lesser Stevie Wonder albums. Titles include "Stranger On The Shore Of Love", "Spiritu ... LP, Vinyl record album
