MC SolaarParadisiaque (3LP set) ... LP
Polydor/Universal (France), 1997. New Copy 3LP ... $42.99 49.99
A tremendous third album from MC Solaar – an artist with such a sense of flow, you might not even realize that he's speaking in French! The album's longer than before, but has a wonderfully unified feel – lots of Boom Bass/La Funk Mob production – at a level that not only revels in the new turns the French funk scene was taking, but which also brings in a bit more soul than before – a quality that really helped Solaar become something of a global star with this record, and not just a novelty hip hop act rhyming in French! The whole thing's rock-solid – and titles include "Gangster Moderne", "Tournicoti", "Zoom", "Daydreamin", "Wonderbra", "Dakota", "La 5eme Saison", "Galaktika", "Les Songes", and "Les Temps Changent".

MC SolaarProse Combat (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Universal (France), 1993. New Copy 2LP ... $29.99 32.99
Maybe the crowning moment on record of the mighty McSolaar – certainly the first French MC to conquer the global world of hip hop, and also maybe one of the first non-American artists to show that other languages could work equally well with the music! The production here is every bit as great as Solaar's lyrics – handled by Jimmy Jay and La Funk Mob, the latter of whom you might know from albums of their own – definitely pioneering European talents in taking the best US modes of the early 90s, and mixing them with a fresher array of beats and samples! Titles include "Obsolete", "Dix De Mes Disciples", "La Fin Justifie Les Moyens", "Sequelles", "Prose Combat", "Nouveau Western", "Superstarr", and "Temps Mort". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MC SolaarQui Seme Le Vent Recolte Le Tempo ... LP
Polygram/Wrasse (France), 1991. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The full-length debut of MC Solaar – and a record that really opened up the door for French language hip hop around the globe! The different structure of French didn't always make it as conducive to beats and rhymes as English – but Solaar found a way to really make things happen, as you'll hear on this set – with really creative wordplay and a unique sense of timing – and a sense of wit and intelligence that put him in the same territory as the Native Tongues on our side of the Atlantic! Titles include "Caroline", "La Musique Adoucit Les Moeurs", "Bouge De La", "Funky Dreamer", "Quartier Nord", "Victime De La Mode", "Armand Est Mort", and "A Temps Partiel". LP, Vinyl record album

Sampled tracks from back in the day – a nice little collection that runs from 70s soul to early 80s boogie, with a few funky jazz cuts in between!
