Corner GangStone Out Of Your Mind ... LP
TSG/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $41.99 48.99
A mysterious bit of group soul from the 70s scene – a record that's full of original material, and delivered in a style that's very much like the best New Jersey and Philly indie sides from the start of the decade! By that, we mean that the group's a little rough around the edges – and we mean that in the best way possible, because the set eschews some of the more commercial styles that were coming up in the big disco year of 1976 – and instead goes for a stripped-down sort of vibe that really lets all the charm of the vocals come through! And although you might guess that the title track is a remake of a tune by the Chi-Lites – it's not, and that cut and most of the others are originals done for the album – titles that include "Like I Do", "Rich Man Alone", "I'm Gonna Be A Star", "When I Met You At The Circus", "Patience", "The Outsider", and "Stone Out Of Your Mind". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great Japanese pressing – with obi!)

✨✧ VariousIllmatic Collection ... LP
Strictly Breaks, 1960s/1970s. Near Mint- 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Don't like getting your fingers dusty? No problem, the folks at Strictly Breaks work hard so you don't have to! The next installment in their now famous "as sampled by . . ." series, this compilation of 31 tracks and 3 drum breaks covers a gang of material used by Nas (well, his producers actually). Loads of classic soul, jazz and funk, and each track is notated as to which song it was used in. Includes Gong "Babooji", Chris Barber "Petit Fleur", Vicki Anderson "Land Of Milk & Honey", Ahmad Jamal "I Love Music", Joe Chambers "Mind Rain", Heath Brothers "Smilin Billy Suite Pt 2", Eddie Floyd "Check Me Out", 24 Carat Black "Mommas Coming", Japanese Hair "Dead End", Love Unlimited "I'll Move You No Mountain", Blue Jays "What Do You Want", Bob James "The Sponge" and The Soul Children "Move Over". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Funk IncHangin' Out ... LP
Prestige, 1972. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
No hangin out here – because these guys are tighter than ever, and right on the money from the very first note of the set! A snapping drum break opens up the album – followed by a wickedly stepping bassline, a rolling conga part, and a vamping dance between Hammond and tenor sax – all to set the scene for a batch of grooves that's easily one of the finest ever from this Indy combo! The album's got a sharpness and tightness that balances beautifully between funky jazz and instrumental soul – a territory that's a bit like Kool & The Gang at times, but which has a much more jazz-based approach on the solos. The big cuts include "Smokin' At Tiffany's" and "Dirty Red" – and other tracks include a sweet cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Give Me Your Love", plus "We Can Be Friends", "I Can See Clearly Now", and "I'll Be Around". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has a cut corner, and some light wear – but vinyl is great.)

Bud PowellBud Powell's Moods ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1954/1955. New Copy ... $13.99
The moods of Bud Powell are some plenty darn ones – corners of sound that few other players had explored at this point in time – served up here especially well in the album's gentler numbers, which almost seem like evil doppelgangers to some of the more rote cocktail piano of the 50s! Powell's in tremendous form here – opening up with imagination on each new number, but never losing his sense of soul in styles that are too modern or too stiff. Rhythm is from Art Taylor on drums, and either George Duvivier or Percy Heath on bass – and titles include a great version of the Powell standard "Time Was" – plus the tracks "Buttercup", "Fantasy In Blue", "The Best", and "It Never Entered My Mind". Nice David Stone Martin cover too! CD

✨✧ Ice CubeAmeriKKKa's Most Wanted ... LP
Priority, 1990. Very Good+ ... $99.99
The solo debut masterpiece from Ice Cube – who links with Bomb Squad for the incredible production! When Ice Cube left NWA he took a lot of the more sobering lyrical aspects of that landmark crew with him, and with the addition of the Bomb Squad's cut & paste rhythms and jackhammer funk, and a bit of new ally Chuck D's social muckraking skills, he created one of the greatest hip hop albums of the 90s. Ice Cube at his solo peak! Features the unbeatable title track, "A Gangsta's Fairytale", "Better Off Dead", "Endangered Species" with Chuck D, "Turn Off The Radio", "Who's The Mack?", "To Come Here", "Once Upon A Time In The Projects" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a thin cutout notch, bumped corner, name in pen in a few spots, and a side two track sticker on back. Labels have name in pen.)

✨✧ Too ShortLife Is – Too Short ... LP
Dangerous/Jive, 1988. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second album from Too Short, and like the first, a set that firmly established both the Cali scene and the Bay Area as a hotbed of harder-hitting hip hop! And sure, there were countless later gangsta acts that slide into the sorts of cliches that often marred the genre – but back at the start, folks like Too Short, Ice T, and NWA were really exploding with a sense of message that was quite a surprise to anyone whose ears were pointed to the east – really opening the door for countless other scenes to add their two cents – including the big wave that would soon rise from the south. The whole thing still sounds surprisingly fresh all these many years later – and titles include "Life Is Too Short", "I Ain't Trippin", "Nobody Does It Better", "Cuss Words", "City Of Dope", "Don't Fight The Feelin", "Rhymes", and "Pimp The Ho". LP, Vinyl record album
(Dangerous/RCA pressing. Cover has some ring and edge wear, bent corners, and a name in pen on both sides. Labels have some pen.)

✨✧ Warren GRegulate – G Funk Era ... LP
Violator, 1994. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A benchmark LP from the first wave of post Chronic g funk – Warren G's blunted masterwork Regulate – G Funk Era! Regulate doesn't have the kind of huge singles that fueled the Dre & Snoop takeover – but it's cut from the same cloth and holds up just as well. Tracks include "Regulate", "Do You See", "Gangsta Sermon", "Recognize", "Super Soul Sis", "This DJ", "And Ya Don't Stop", "Runnin Wit No Breaks", and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing with Masterdisk etch. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp, light wear, bumped corner, and a name in pen on both sides.)
