Showbiz & AGRunaway Slave ... LP
Payday/Island, 1992. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 24.99
A legendary record from Show & AG – and one of the best of the early 90s from the DITC camp! Runaway Slave came about during the end of an era when major labels still seemed to be hungry to popularize underground hip hop without watering it down – with London/Polygram stepping in to market & distribution for Payday Records – a label that ultimately served as an early proving ground for some of the most vital and popular hip hop artists ever – but this album has always been an underground phenomenon. It's a masterful one at that! Titles include that classic track "Bounce Ta This", "Represent", "Fat Pockets", "40 Acres And My Props", "Hold Ya Head", "Runaway Slave", "Hard To Kill", "Soul Clap" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

KinksEverybody's In Showbiz (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Konk, 1972. Used ... $4.99
An overlooked gem from The Kinks – a set that's got all the wit of their late 60s material, a bit of the rootsy currents of Muswell Hillbillies, and a lot more bite than the group would have in some of their next few albums to come! Ray Davies' pen is razor-sharp, as is his vocal approach – and the songs are maybe even more gritty than the group would have done a few years before – furthered by some of the instrumental currents that also bring in a few acoustic elements and some Americanized riffs, which are then also matched by an occasional twang in Ray's vocal presentation. Plus, the double-length set also features one album of studio material, and a second live album – almost as a "bonus" thrown in for good measure. Studio tracks include the hit "Celluloid Heroes", plus "Here Comes Yet Another Day", "Maximum Constipation", "Unreal Reality", "Hot Potatoes", "Motorway", and "Supersonic Rocket Ship" – and live cuts include "Skin & Bone", "Alcohol", "Banana Boat Song", "Lola", "Holiday", and "Mr Wonderful CD

Big LLifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous ... CD
Columbia, 1995. New Copy ... $4.99 8.99
The classic first solo album by Big L – with bedrock DITC production by Buckwild, Showbiz and Lord Finesse – perfectly framing the rhymes by Harlem's finest. Big L didn't leave a huge wealth of recordings before he was taking away from the world, but he started out strong, and this benchmark effort makes a pretty solid testament to his legacy. Alongside some of the period QB hip hop, this one is pretty close to the pinnacle of streetwise east coast 90s hip hop. 12 tracks in all: "Put It On", "MVP", "No Endz, No Skinz", "8 Iz Enuff", "All Black", "Danger Zone", "Street Struck", "Da Graveyard", "Lifestylez Ov Da Poor And Dangerous", "I Don't Understand It, "Fed Up Wit The Bullsh#t", and "Let 'Em Have It L".

Das EfxHold It Down (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
East West/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $32.99 38.99
Das EFX's third album finds them holding down a more jam-packed approach than ever before – longer by half than their previous LPs and with a strong sense of purpose! Das EFX appeared with such a unique rhyme style, by this point they really needed to balance the tasks of being recognizable as as the hard-hitting duo with the distinctive approach to rhymes, without relying on it as a gimmick, and here they largely succeed – with production from Premier, Showbiz, Easy Mo Bee, Klark Kent, DJ Scratch and more. Tracks include "No Diggedy", "Represent The Real" with KRS, "Microphone Master", "Hold It Down", "Bad News" with PMD, "Real Hip Hop", "40 & A Blunt", "Ready To Rock Rough Rhymes", and lots more!

Diamond & The Psychotic NeuroticsStunts, Blunts, & Hip Hop ... LP
Mercury, 1992. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $14.99 24.99
The early 90s hip hop masterpiece from Diamond D! Along with Showbiz and AG's first EP, and Lord Finesse's first couple releases, this record helped introduce the world to one of the most solid crews in hip hop, DITC – who reigned supreme for years, making top quality records one after another. The classic and oft-imitated Diamond beats laid the blueprint for so much hip hop to follow – and the titles include "Sally Got A One Track Mind," "Best Kept Secret," "I'm Outta Here," "Check One, Two", "Freestyle (Yo That's The Sh..)" and more! Loads of great guest stars, like Lakim Shabazz, Big L, Fat Joe, and Brand Nubian. LP, Vinyl record album

PlaceboPlacebo Live 1971 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
We Release Jazz (Switzerland), 1971. New Copy ... $28.99
A never-issued live set by one of the coolest European funk bands of the 70s – the legendary Placebo – not the current group, but a vintage ensemble that features wicked work on Fender Rhodes from the mighty Marc Moulin! The 1971 date of the set places it before the combo's famous albums in the studio – and in addition to plenty of open, flowing keyboard lines from Moulin, there's also a more spiritual sound from the group as well – more jazz than funk, but never in a too-jamming way – as the whole thing retains that strong sense of space and timing that's always made Placebo so different than some of their contemporaries! There's great fluegelhorn from Richard Rousselet, soprano sax from Alex Scorier, bass clarinet from Johnny Dover, drums from Freddy Rottier, and massive basslines from Nick Kletchkovsky – which really keep things moving over the course of the album-length "Showbiz Suite" – a cool track with lots of great changes!

Placebo (Marc Moulin)Ball Of Eyes (Japanese pressing) ... LP
EMI/P-Vine (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... About June 5, 2020 (delayed)
A very cool little album from Placebo – arguably the group's most soulful session ever, and one that draws heavily from American funky jazz at the start of the 70s! The grooves are nice and tight, and keyboards are focused on the most soulful sort of riffs – not nearly as tripped out as in later years, and really doing a great job of sending home the funky rhythms – almost in a way that's sort of early CTI at the best points! Marc Moulin's genius is already firmly in place – and he handles all arrangements, plus plays Fender Rhodes, electric harpsichord, and even what sounds like a bit of moog! Titles include "Humpty Dumpty", "Aria", "Showbiz Suite", "Ball Of Eyes", "You Got Me Hummin", and "Inner City Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Placebo/Sadi Quartet/Rene ThomasLive In Bruxelles – Jazz In Belgium – Three Days In April (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Rare work from the legendary funky group Placebo – recorded live here in a set that also features contributions from two other great Belgian acts too! Placebo dominate the first half of the record – and turn in a hard-driving performance that's heavy on Fender Rhodes from the legendary Marc Moulin – who has this way of playing that makes his keyboard lines all nice and chunky, and a perfect fit for the funky drums and tight horns on the tunes! The group's a septet, with two trumpets, two saxes, bass, and drums – all kicking out a great groove for the Rhodes, on tunes that include "Showbiz Suite", "Only Nineteen", and "Planes". Next up is strongly soulful work from vibist Fats Sadi – a player you might know from his 60s work on MPS and in the Clarke Boland Big Band – sounding great here in a quartet mode, with piano, bass and drums – ringing out out strongly on tunes that include "Burgos", "Gigi's Pad", and "Gospel Time". Last up is guitarist Rene Thomas – a player whose best-known work is from the 50s Parisian scene. Rene still sounds great here – and actually plays with a harder tone and more freewheeling vibe – in a trio with bass and drums, on the titles "Blue Tempo", "My Wife Maria", and "Chega Da Saudade".
