Very cool sounds from Polish keyboardist Krzystof Duda – two long live tracks recorded in the 80s, but with this freewheeling spirit and sense of space that recalls 70s genius by better-known talents like Klaus Schulze or Jean-Michel Jarre! Duda plays a Moog Prodigy, which is especially nice – and has all these loopy lines that are completely wonderful – and also uses a Korg Polysix, Arp string ensemble, and a few other keyboards – but all with a sense of warmth that's very different than some of the leaner, tinnier 80s modes that you might have heard from other parts of the globe at the time. Titles include "Vivi Olim Homo" and "Radosna Medytacja" – both of which run well over 30 minutes in length! CD
Mobb Deep —
Infamy ... LP Loud/Violator, 2001. Near Mint- 2LP ...
Mobb Deep steps into a new millennium with a slightly bigger sound, but without losing the plot! Long-heralded for being gritty and raw in the best kind of way, Prodigy & Havoc had nothing left to prove on that front – so taking a slight left turn with a more introspective lyrical bent and some sweeter soul backing vocals on the hook is anything but a crime against their legacy if you ask us, it actually deepens it –- especially with the rhymes still in their cornerstone style on a lot of the tracks. 16 tracks in all, including "Get Away", "Bounce", "Hey Luv (Anything)", "The Learning (Burn)", "Get At Me", "Clap", "Crawlin", "There I Go Again" wiht Ron Isley, "I Won't Fall" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
