✨✧ BreakestraSexy Popcorn Pot (voc, inst)/Remember Who You Are (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Stones Throw, 2001. Very Good (pic cover)... $4.99
Two funky classics from one of the best new combos around! "Sexy Popcorn Pot" and "Remember Who You Are" are done here both in vocal and instrumental versions – with a groove that you'll swear was lifted straight from a lost box of funky 45s, but which is played live with impeccable care by the group! Excellent stuff – and the vocal versions are lifted from the Live Mix Part 2 LP! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover is slightly wavy from moisture.)

BumpsBumps ... CD
Stones Throw, 2007. Used ... $1.99
Breaks, beats and funky drums from Bumps – aka Dan Bitney, John Herndon and John McEntire of Tortoise – a mightily thumping set that sounds very little like their much vaunted flagship operation – serving up raw, funky beatcraft all the way through! Tortoise has always worked with bottom heavy grooving elements, beyond the experimentalism, and have never really gotten enough credit for that aspect of their sound. Bumps really lets them roll with it! Nothing but beats here – drawing from a diverse wellspring of funk, avant garde jazz and dubby influences! Titles include "A Safe Balm, "Biotic Discussion", "As Bond Did", "Crass Jenny", "Deal, Tree", "Hello, Leo", "Can You See", "A Dumb Month", "Exponent Memoir", "Nashira", "Fun Injury", "Intermission Pt 1", "Intermission Pt 2", "Don't Cry, My Son", "Swingland Hit" and more.

Jamael DeanBlack Space Tapes ... LP
Stones Throw, 2019. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
Spiritual sounds from the west coast underground – and a set that's maybe got a few more avant moments than other records of this kind! Jamael Dean plays piano in a shifting landscape of musicians – one that features percussion and production from the great Carlos Nino, some strings from Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, alto from Devin Daniels, tenor and flute from Aaron Shaw, and drums from Tim Angulo. The tunes rise up in a bold spirit that's not afraid to step outside at some key moments, but also returns more to the cosmic flow of the tunes – maybe a bit like Alice Coltrane might get free at some points on her Impulse Records albums, but never lose sense of the message. The sound here is very different than just a straight Coltrane mode, though – as there are some keyboard moments, and a real shift in mood between each track on the set – especially when there are slight vocal contributions from Sharada Shashidar. Titles include "Akamara", "Adawa", "Kronos", "Olokun", and "Emi". LP, Vinyl record album

Bruce HaackFarad Bruce Haack – The Electric Voice ... CD
Stones Throw, 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $4.99
Amazing electric grooves from synth innovator Bruce Haack – whose pioneering use of analog synths and vocoder vocals in the service of great, if far out songcraft was pretty much unrivaled in the 70s and into the early 80s – the period in which this excellent compilation on Stones Throw highlights! Haack's earlier successes were children's music in the 60s, and one of the coolest aspects of his 70s recordings was how that somewhat bright-eyed and innocent sing-song-y approached moved into more surrealist, weirder realms on albums like Electric Lucifer, that album's lesser known, still quite brilliant sequel, and albums like Haackula and Bite. Choice cuts from those albums as well as rare singles are rounded up for Stones Throw's impeccably curated overview. The electric voice and synth errata brings an otherworldly vibe to catchy songs – and Haack's use of the vocoder was followed by so many others who would become household names, from Kraftwerk to Pink Floyd. Amazing stuff! 16 tracks in all: "Electric To Me Turn", "Incantation", "Rain Of Earth", "Ancient Mariner", "Man Kind", "Rita", "Lie Back", "Snow Job"m "The King", "Party Machine" and more. CD

Mayer HawthorneStrange Arrangement ... CD
Stones Throw, 2009. Used ... $1.99
The full length debut of Mayer Hawthorne for Stones Throw – with both classic Motown and 60s & 70s Detroit indie soul influences, done the right way, and all of it wonderful and true to his heroes – after some promising early singles, we can now say emphatically that Mayer Hawthorne is indeed the real thing! On some of this material, Hawthorne is a one man soul band, with the tunes stripped to a gritty, raw soul essence – and on other tunes he gets some assistance on brass, strings and keys – pulling off a number of modes with equally excellent results. He evokes Curtis Mayfield when he gets the falsetto going, but other touchstone influences are apparent – a couple of the more uptempo tunes sound like they could be late 60s Temptations b-sides. Mayer may look like Dwight Schrute on the cover, but don't be fooled – his love for soul music is true and unironic, and he has the chops to pull it off! Titles include "A Strange Arrangement", "Just Ain't Gonna Work Out", "Maybe So, Maybe No", "Your Easy Lovin' Ain't Pleasin' Nothin'", "I Wish It Would Rain", "Make Her Mine", "One Track Mind", "The Ills", "Shiny & New", "Let Me Know" and "Green Eyed Love".

Heliocentrics13 Degrees Of Reality ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. Used ... $9.99
If this is reality, lead us onward – as the set is a mindblowing batch of trippy psych-funk from The Heliocentrics – even more offbeat and experimental than before, in ways that make the combo the true heirs to the legacy first begun by Stark Reality! The album's definitely funky at the core, but it's also filled with loads of amazing sounds – instruments tuned weirdly, played weirdly, and produced weirdly – so that over the heavy drums, there's often lots of freaky, fuzzy bits and tripped-out sounds – in ways that make the record feel like some lost acid trip outtakes from the Westbound studios of the early 70s – or like some obscure funk band that dropped acid at Andy Warhol's loft! The packaging offers up a visual example of what your ears will be going through when you tune into the music – and titles include "Mysterious Ways", "Collateral Damage", "Black Sky", "Calabash", "Path Of The Black Sun", "Mr Owusu I Presume", "Eastern Begena", and loads of cool interlude tracks too.

J Dilla (Jay Dee)Donuts ... LP
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99 23.98
The classic batch of instrumentals from J Dilla – one that strongly transcends the hip hop genre – and perhaps his rawest, and most adventurous listening experience ever! The loopy soul samples, rich synth/electro shine, and thumping bass and soul beats that Dilla largely made his name on are laced throughout, but he also takes things a step into stranger territory – with spacey elements that buzz as much as they groove! The cuts are never less than soulful and funky, and never really steps into his peer Madlib's brand of the weeded out style, either. We love how raw this all feels, too! It's easily identifiable as the work of Jay Dee, but at the same time, wholly unpredictable! One of the best releases that Stone's Throw ever released – instrumental or vocal! Includes "Donuts (Intro & Outro)", "Workinonit", "Waves", "Light My Fire", "People", "Mash", "Airworks", "Lightworks", "Stepson Of The Clapper", "One Eleven", "Don't Cry", "Geek Down", "Thunder", "Gobstopper", "Walkinonit", "U-Love", "Last Donut Of The Night" and more.

JaylibChampion Sound ... LP
Stones Throw, 2003. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99 22.99
Damn! The MASSIVE collaborative album from the dynamic duo of Madlib and J Dilla! Essentially, Madlib handles the production on the even numbers in the set with Dilla on the vocals, and the roles are reversed on the odd numbers. Each producer does his own thing, as only he can do it – Madlib brings the funky sampler genius – and Dilla rocks the thumping Detroit hip hop soul crunch. A number of guest rhymers step to the mic, including Talib Kweli, Percee P, Frank-N-Dank & Guilty Simpson, and the flow is seamless. Not only was this one of the best hip hop albums of '03, it also has a dyed-in-the-wool classic production style, and it sounds just as great a few years later! So very highly recommended! Tracks include "L.A. To Detroit", "McNasty Filth" with Frank-n-Dank, "Nowadayz", "Champion Sound", "The Red", "Heavy", "Raw S*!t" with Kweli, "The Official", "The Heist", "The Mission", "React" with Quasimodo, "The Exclusive" with Percee P, "Survival Test", "Starz" and "No Games".

Stimulator JonesExotic Worlds & Masterful Treasures ... LP
Stones Throw, 2018. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Bass-heavy funk with a definite 80s influence – but served up here with a contemporary crispness that's the best calling card of Stimulator Jones! In a world where so many others find it easy to completely cop the sounds of the post-disco years, these guys take all the best elements and weave them into something that's completely their own – unabashedly bright and bubbly in their choice of melody, and crafting tunes that are way more than just a blend of beats, bass, and keyboards – even though the keyboards here are pretty darn great overall! Titles include "Need Your Body", "Water Slide", "Give My All", "Feel Your Arms Around Me", "Together", "Trippin On You", and "Suite Luv". LP, Vinyl record album

As impressive a blend of compelling beatcraft and moody atmposphere as anything he's done to date.

Oh NoExodus Into Unheard Rhythms – Made With The Music Of Galt MacDermot ... CD
Stones Throw, 2006. Used ... $7.99
A landmark hip hop album from Stones Throw MC and producer Oh No – one that's assembled almost entirely of samples from the work of jazz funk pioneer Galt MacDermot – with a reverent roster of guest vocalists that include Pos of De La Soul, AG, Vast Aire, MED, Dudley Perkins, Frank N Dank and more! In a way, this is the first album of it's kind in the history of hip hop. The Stones Throw label has never made secret of just how deeply influenced they are by Galt's oeuvre – and this LP is not only a great show of respect to the composer, it's the best work Oh No's done to date. Fresh and funky all the way through! Titles include "Beware" feat Cali Agents, "Black" feat Wise Intelligent, "To Be An MC" feat K Jay, "Keep Tryin'" feat Roc C, "Know Better" feat Wordsworth, "Second Chance" feat Aloe Blacc, "Low Coastin'" feat AG, "Cut Session" feat DJ Romes, "Smile A Little Bit" feat Posdnuos, "Keep It Lit" feat MED & Wildchild, "In This" feat Murs, "Hank" feat LMNO, "Lights Out" feat Frank N Dank and more!

P's presence is inimitable as ever, with Madlib providing beats that are as straight up hip hop as anything he's done in '07 – with guests that include fellow mid school legends Diamond D & Prince Po, plus Aesop Rock, Chali 2Na, Vinnie Paz & Guilty Simpson. Titles include "The Hand That Leads You", "The Man To Praise", "Legendary Lyricist" feat Madlib, "Watch Your Step" feat Vinnie Paz & Guilty Simpson, "Who With Me?", "2 Brothers From The Gutter" feat Diamond D, "Ghetto Rhyme Stories", "No Time For Jokes" feat Chali 2Na, "Last Of The Greats" feat Prince Po, "The Dirt And Filth" by Aesop Rock, "Mastered Craftsman", "Raw Heat" (45 version), "Lady Behind Me" and more.

The hype sticker on this one might say it all – "First album in 34 years, still sounds like '84" – and that's definitely the spirit here, as overlooked soul artist Prophet serves up a host of sweet 80s keyboards and grooves! He's not alone, though – as Mndsgn is on board to help with all the instrumentation, songwriting, and production – allowing the sweetly light vocals of Prophet to shine even more, as he croons and grooves over tunes that are heavy on keyboards, and have lots of bassy touches on the funkier moments. Titles include "Wanna Be Your Man", "Party", "I Do Love", "Tonight", "Right On Time", "Dream", "Really Turn Me On", and "Ooo We Yeah". LP, Vinyl record album

A great full length album from Sudan Archives – an artist whose name is a bit misleading – as there's nothing Sudanese or archival in her sound! But the vibe of the record is maybe captured by the image on the cover – as the music all features violin, but in a contemporary soul setting that's also blended with her vocals – set to backings that are crispy and cosmic, and which maybe live up to the best sort of future soul music we were hearing from the Stones Throw label over a decade ago! Yet the violin really changes things up – almost making a 4AD take on soul music at times, although with an overall style that's a lot more contemporary Cali than vintage London – on titles that include "Did You Know", "Iceland Moss", "Coming Up", "House Of Open Tuning", "Limitless", "Stuck", Honey", "Ballet Of The Unhatched Twins", "Down On Me", and "Pelicans In The Summer".

A Stones Throw sci-fi masterpiece – one that was destined for greatness from conception, but we're still pretty well blown away by the final product! MC Doom and beatmaster Madlib couldn't be better suited for a collaboration. As much as we've dug the best of Doom's material of the last couple years, he's always needed a good editor – and Madlib brings nothing but the best sci-fi sound collages, scratches, and titanically driving funky beats – the grooved out 70s side of 'Lib's personality is wisely given a powder, while in the company of a vocal presence that's as insane as Doom. When it's not so pounding, the sound drops into the kinda gloomy, murky crackle of earliest Wu Tang. This is easily the best album of its kind since Dr. Octagon tore the flood gates open. Essential!!!

MF Doom and Madlib, two of the most ubiquitous characters in underground hip hop – hell, perhaps THE most ubiquitous characters in underground hip hop, pair up for an outing on Stones Throw!

"America's Most Blunted" is the DJ's game, with a string of strange samples and soundtrack vibe with a Cut Chemist feel. Madlib's knob twirlin' and wheel spinnin' on the two main cuts and remixes is much more in his funk beats and wacked samples guise than the mad jazz vibe he's been rocking on other recent projects. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Now Again/Stones Throw, 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Rare funk from the Indy scene of the early 70s – the long-overdue release of material recorded by a really hard-jamming, horn-heavy combo! Amnesty have a sound that's awash in the best large group influences of the time – a bit of Earth Wind & Fire, a bit of Parliament/Funkadelic, but also a grittier, more guitar-based groove at times too – one that rumbles heavily at the bottom of the rhythms, with a sound that's like Norman Whitfield-era Motown, taken to much greater extremes! There's actually a lot more Detroit going on in the work than Indy – but the horns also have a jazzier, more open-ended quality too – not just parts penned for simple funky rhythms, but ones that show some influence from the more righteous side of the jazz spectrum. The material was all recorded on two dates in 1973 – but only issued here for the first time – and together, the tracks are a great example of a hip group from the underground, really letting loose with a great sense of freedom. There's some vocals on the record, but almost more of a focus on the instrumentation overall – and titles include "Can I Help You", "Love Fades", "Trouble Will Remain", "We've Come A Long Way", "Liberty", "Mister President", "Free Your Mind", "We Have Love", and "Lord Help Me".

As much as we've dug the best of Doom's material of the last couple years, he's always needed a good editor – and Madlib brings nothing but the best sci-fi sound collages, scratches, and titanically driving funky beats – the grooved out 70s side of 'Lib's personality is wisely given a powder, while in the company of a vocal presence that's as insane as Doom. When it's not so pounding, the sound drops into the kinda gloomy, murky crackle of earliest Wu Tang. This is easily the best album of its kind since Dr. Octagon tore the flood gates open. Essential!!! "The Illest Villains", "Accordian", "Bistro", "Raid" feat Medaphoar, "America's Most Blunted", "Rainbows", "Curls", "Money Folder", "Hardcore Hustle","Fancy Clown", "Supervillain", "All Caps", "Rhinestone Cowboy" and more.

✨✧ Yesterdays New QuintetElle's Theme/Rerev/Herbal Scent/Sunrays ... 12-inch
Stones Throw, 2001. Very Good+ (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Stones Throw have done it again – breaking down boundaries between funk, hip hop, and turntable culture, offering up this brilliant 4 track ep from Yesterday's New Quintet! The album's got a mix of breaks, beats, and jazzy riffs that feels like Tribe Called Quest going through the Blue Note editing floor, circa 1971. Madlib (who is really most of the group) produced the whole set – and the tracks mix together easy beats, warm electric keyboards, and loads of great grooves! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousFunky 16 Corners ... LP
Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the best funky compilations ever! The folks at Stones Throw Records – home of some of the most funk-inspired hip hop of the past decade – have dug through the crates to come up with this incredible batch of 19 tunes, all well-researched, nicely remastered, and offered up here on a 100% legit basis! But even more than that, the selection of music is incredible – killer funky tunes of the sort that you'd shell out plenty for on 45, moving way past the standard loud funk mode, into a hip realm of jazz-tinged expression, complicated enough for today's beatheads, yet straightforward enough to keep the groove going! Titles include "Fish Head" by Slim & The Soulful Saints, "The Dump" by Soul Vibrations, "What About You" by Co Real Artists, "The Kick" by The Rhythm Machine, "Kashmere" by Kashmere Stage Band, "Tighten Up Tighter" by Billy Ball & The Upsetters, "Beautiful Day" by Spider Harrison, "Southside Funk" by Soul Seven, "In The Rain" by The Wooden Glass with Billy Wooten, and "Go To Work" by Revolution Compared To What.

Stones Throw, 2007. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hazy beatcraft steeped in Indian soundtrack style funk, strings and percussion from the indefatigable Madlib – Volume 3 in the increasingly adventurous and conceptual outings of the Beat Konducta! This time out Madlib, er, Beat Konducta is conducting beats, strings & things from India and/or otherwise East – but the way in which the beats bluntly thump is quintessential Madlib – you know it and love it from the first beat! 'Lib really breathes fresh life into this approach – going miles deeper than anyone out there doing the Bollywood-hip hop hybrid – coming up with a sound all his own. Masterful! "Onthanewthing", "Indian Deli", "Rumble", "Dancing Girls Theme", "Piano Garden", "Dark Alley Incidental Music", "Early Party", "Fifth Chant", "The Rip Off (Scene 3)", and "Sitar Ride".

Stones Throw, 2003/2007. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
J Dilla at his grittiest, most rugged & raw – in both the production and rhyme realm – with all beats and rhymes by the Dilla himself! This set originally opened our ears to a different side of Dilla, a harder hitting aesthetic, with beats and grooves from out of leftfield that draw you in and hypnotize. Ruff Draft was originally released as a vinyl only EP for the European market, and it was tough to get ahold of from the get go – so hats off to Stones Throw for giving it the reverent re-release it deserves – fleshed out with bonus tracks! Titles include "Let's Take It Back", "Reckless Driving", "Nothing Like This", "The $", "Make'Em NV", "Crushin'", "Wild" (a previously unreleased track that's nothing short of mindblowing – a minimalist masterpiece), "Take Notice" and more. 14 tracks on 2LPs.

Stones Throw, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge's full length debut as a duo – and the most triumphant Stones Throw record in years! To this (still early) point in young .Paak's career, his voice has already proved to be a prime vessel for natural grit and mood, if not gamechanger songwriting, best paired with crackling, funk-steeped hip hop soul production. That's the case whether he's producing himself, working with a giant like Dr. Dre, or paired as he is here with Knxledge. Knx's production is a perfect backdrop – beats out front in the mix, classic Cali sample funk and soul framing the vocals – with a lingering haze holding it all together amazingly well! Intentional or not, Yes Lawd channels earlier Stones Throw classic LPs like Jaylib and Madvillain in the way it pairs distinctive contemporary talents for a joint duo effort, and after .Paak's solo shot Malibu, it's his second potential classic in a single year! Includes "Livvin", "Wngs", "What More Can I Say", "Kutless", "Lyk Dis", "Can't Stop", "Get Bigger", "Scared Money", "Suede", "Starlite", "Sidepiece", "Jodi", "Link Up", "Another Time", "Fkku" and more.

A prime rarity from the Dam-Funk archives – showing his mastery of easygoing boogie funk era-inspired instrumentals was in near peak form even on what was originally issued as a tour-only CD-R! Recorded around the time of his seminal synth soul opus Toeachizown for Stones Throw, these 4 jams – "Electric Breeze", "Nyghtryder", "She Lights Me Up" and "Special Dimensions" – each living up to its title and make for a worthy late discovery. It's kind of a leaner, lighter side of the bright, breezy, neon-lit cosmic soul vibe he was perfecting at the time – really good stuff that deserves a wider release than it got at the time! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Dion Di MuciDonna The Prima Donna ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Dion really sounds great here – stepping away from the straighter pop of his roots, and mixing in a bit of soul, and just a tiny current of the headier sounds he'd unlock later in the 60s! The production style is pop, but the material often goes far past that – into territory that definitely has more mature themes, but still delivered with that Dion DiMucci flair for swinging a lyric in just the right way! And as before, one of Dion's strongest suits is the way that he's able to bring in this subtle current of sadness, all while trying to shake it off with a catchy tune. Titles include "Donna The Prima Donna", "Flim Flam", "Oh Happy Days", "You're Mine", "I Can't Believe", "Be Careful Of The Stones That You Throw", "Troubled Mind", "This Little Girl Of Mine" and "Sweet Sweet Baby".

Columbia/Ace (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
A pair of Columbia Records classics from Dion – back to back on a single CD! First up is Ruby Baby – a solo debut by Dion DiMucci – working here away from his earlier Belmonts group, and really finding a way to sharpen both his vocals, and his approach to the music! Dion's really crafting his lead strongly on these tunes – emerging partly as a pop act, but also with some of the more sophisticated stylings that a singer like Bobby Darin was hitting as he aged past the teen set – even with slight jazz currents in the mix at times! The title cut was a huge hit for Dion – the classic "Ruby Baby" – and that gem sits here nicely alongside others that include "The End Of The World", "Fever", "The Loneliest Man In The World", "He'll Only Hurt You", "You're Nobody Til Somebody Loves You", "Gonna Make It Alone", and "Will Love Ever Come My Way". On Donna The Prima Donna, Dion really sounds great – stepping away from the straighter pop of his roots, and mixing in a bit of soul, and just a tiny current of the headier sounds he'd unlock later in the 60s! The production style is pop, but the material often goes far past that – into territory that definitely has more mature themes, but still delivered with that Dion DiMucci flair for swinging a lyric in just the right way!

Maybe the best Madlib-produced LP since the highest peaks of the prime Stones Throw era, and Freddie Gibbs is on fire throughout! Each one does what he does best here and ups the ante. 'Lib is focused on crackling soul beats and hazy funk – masterfully utilizing vintage and contemporary sample sources from Donny Hathaway and Syl Johnson to Kaidi Tatham and The Heliocentrics – delivering the right kind of gritty headnodding vibe without compromising on his distinctive style. Freddie Gibbs is uncompromisingly raw and fiercely focused, varying the speed of his flow when the mood strikes, so what sounds like it might be an uncommonly inspired freestyle one second rolls into the most dexterous lyricism for the next couple minutes.

A compilation of pivotal mid 90s Dilla productions and remixes – classics and rarities from the Pharcyde, N'Dea Davenport, and the Brand New Heavies with guest appearances by Q-Tip and Mos Def – great stuff from the prime Delicious Vinyl years! It's full of bedrock jazzy funk from Jay Dee – a 2CD set with vocal versions on the first disc and a second CD featuring instrumentals.

Sparely funky, yet heavily atmospheric hip hop productions from unsung titan Kankick – made up mostly of late 90s material – and it's right up with some of our favorite leftfield producers of the period! Kankicks was perhaps best known as a Lootpack affiliate around this time, and sure enough, it's the kind of thing that would have sounded right at home on Stones Throw in the label's infancy. This ain't baby stuff, though, and it's aging quite well! Raw beats laced by vinyl grit, occasional hazy vocals and trippy atmosphere to spare. Relatively little heard excellence from an unsung producer! Includes "The A-1 Sound", "Witness Truthful Mystics", "One Reason Why", "A Song For My Forefathers", "Look At That", "Amplified Dynastical", "Lady Slick" feat Unorthodox, "Unpredictable", "To All The Duck Rap Radio DJs", "FLS (Do You Like)", "Night Shine", "Oodles Of Ounces", "Aquarian Meditation", "The Blowfly" (Kancritic feat Medaphoar), "Dig The Transition", "Bread And A Rolls Royce" and more.

✨✧ MadlibShades Of Blue – Madlib Invades Blue Note ... CD
Blue Note, 2003. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Madlib invades Blue Note! He gets free reign of the catalog for this mix of sampler genius and live band interpretations, too, as/with Ahmad Miller, Yesterdays New Quintet, Malcolm Catto, Medaphoar, and others from the Stones Throw camp. This one's truly a conceptual triumph, if there ever was such a thing – one of the greatest hip hop producers alive, given carte blanche with the source beats of the century! Madlib's Blue Note crates are heavily weighed in the mid 60s through mid 70s electric beats that often get the shaft in mainstream jazz round-ups, but floor the beathead world into overdrive. Re-interpretations, remixes, and revisions are spliced seamlessly with the source samples, creating a whole new world where hip hop and late model live funk not only co-exists with classic Blue Note jazz, but it actually draws a linear transition between the 2 genius art forms. Beautiful stuff – if the album isn't the most original idea to come along all of these years into the hip hop & jazz underground, it's certainly one of the most perfectly realized projects of its kind, ever! It's one for the time capsule – easily one of Madlib's masterpieces, and pure funky sample wizardry by any standard! Includes Monk Higgins' "Slim's Return" interpreted by Ahmad Miller and DJ Lord Such on cuts, "Donald Byrd's "Distant Land", "Ronnie Foster's "Mystic Bounce", Yesterday's New Quintet's adaptation of Wayne Shorter's "Footprints", Madlib Invazion's "Funky Blue Note", the Joe McDuphrey Experience take on Horace Silver's/Herbie Hancock's "Peace/Dolphin Dance" and lots more.

An overdue look at the lost Lamp Records – a crucially important indie soul label on the Indy scene of the late 60s and early 70s – a company that was never as big as Chess or Motown, but did a similar job of documenting its city's musical scene! Indianapolis was always a very diverse city – and gave the world bigger funk and jazz luminaries like Wes Montgomery or Funk Inc – but like most cities of its size, Indy also sported a rich underground of great singers and bands who were really trying to make it big – all really great artists who were captured in deep detail by the Lamp Records label! Now Again/Stones Throw have given us a slight look at this scene in the past – most notably with their reissues of work by Ebony Rhythm Band – but this is the first really detailed dig into the label, with a huge amount of material that's only ever circulated on very rare original pressings. The work is a great mix of group soul, funky cuts, sweet harmony, and even a bit of gospel – and titles on this 2LP set include "Somebody Please" by The Vanguards, "You Made My Everything" by Words Of Wisdom Truth Revue, "Hum Bug" by Diplomatics, "I Didn't Know" by Funder Cooper, "Go To Work" by Revolution Compared To What, "Everybody Who Wants To Be Free" by Amnesty, "Can I Call You Baby" by The Pearls, "Take Me" by Fabulous Souls, "High On The Hill" by Squidd, "Soul Heart Transplant" by Ebony Rhythm Band, "See The Lord" by Mighty Indiana Travelers, "Huh" by Tony Black & Revolution Compared To What, "I'm Only Human" by Embers, "It Swells My Desire" by The PHDs, and "More Than I Can Stand" by Moonlighters.
