Sugar Hill Gang8th Wonder ... LP
Sugar Hill, 1981. Very Good ... $8.99
One of the first full albums from the Sugarhill Gang – and a good sampling of their early tracks for Sugarhill!

Also features "Showdown", a classic old school battle track, recorded with the Furious 5 – plus the cuts "8th Wonder", "Hot Hot Summer Day", and "Kick It Live From 9 to 5". LP, Vinyl record album

Three female singers/MC's with backing by the Sugarhill Gang Band – and rhymes that sound like they might have been written by the Sugarhill Gang. Maybe it's not up to the standards of other early female MC's like Sha Rock of the Funky 4 +1, but this is more like a 1979-era slow-tempo funk/dance track than a straight hip hop record. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sugar Hill/Friday Music, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $48.99
A mighty look at one of the first great groups in hip hop – maybe not the originators of the style, but certainly the one to get some of the biggest exposure – thanks to the work of Sugar Hill Records, and some very catchy tunes! The Sugarhill Gang were one of the key groups involved in taking the spirit of South Bronx street parties to the mainstream outside the big city – and given all the hits on the set, you can bet that they did a pretty great job – on titles that include the very long original version of "Rapper's Delight", plus "8th Wonder", "Apache", "The Lover In You", "The Word Is Out", "Girls", "Kick It Live From 9 To 5", "Livin In The Fast Lane", and "Hot Hut Summer Day". Also includes "Showdown" – which has them meeting up with The Furious Five – and "Work Work The Body", with Big Bank Hank, Kory-O, and Wonder Mike! LP, Vinyl record album

Sugar Hill, 1982. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although Sylvia Robinson made her big money during the 70s recording soul for the All-Platinum group of labels – and then went over big to hip hop with her Sugar Hill label – she still managed to cut a few soul sides during the 80s, and the work of Harry Ray is some of her strongest from the time. Ray had broken away from the Ray, Goodman, Brown group at the time, had worked previously with Robinson in The Moments, and he's singing here in a sweet modern mode. Angie B of The Sequence joins Harry on "Love Is A Game", Sylvia joins in on "Sweet Baby", and other tracks include "Lost Affair", "I Will Love You Anyway", "It's Good To Be Home", and "I'm Willing".

Eddie HillHot Guitar – Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
Country music talent Eddie Hill is maybe best known to the world as the guy who gave the Louvin Brothers their first work, or as a big force on the Grand Old Opry – but he's also a hell of a guitarist who cut some fantastic sides during the postwar years – records that ring out with all sorts of great guitar modes that easily puts Hill right up there with some of the greats of his time! The package is the first to ever do justice to the strengths of Eddie's talents – and features singles recorded for Decca, Mercury, RCA, and Columbia, plus some rare Apollo Records work too – all brought together in a collection that has Hill stepping easily through a variety of hillbilly talents, always with plenty of vocal charm to match his instrumental strengths too. Titles include his classic "The Hot Guitar" – a commentary on all the rising hillbilly styles in 1951 – plus "The Gottalotta Song", "Black Denim Trousers & Motorcycle Boots", "High Wide & Handsome", "Lovin Spree", "Who Wrote The Letter To Old John", "My Sugar Booger", "Bless Your Little Thumpin Gizzard", "Melting Steel", "Mind Your Own Business", "Fire Ball Eight", "Buckshot", "Wild Cat", and "Hard Road To Travel".

✨✧ Kenny BurrellAsphalt Canyon Suite ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $18.99 About June 16, 2021
A stunner from Kenny Burrell – one of his most sophisticated and soulful sessions of the 60s! Kenny's working here with the ultra-cool arranger Johnny Pate – best known for his work with Curtis Mayfield, and his 70s soundtrack fame – but a heck of a creative talent when it comes to a jazz session like this! For the record, Pate's created these spare little backdrops – not nearly as full as those penned by Don Sebesky or Claus Ogerman – and with a gentle sort of grooving quality that really pushes Kenny along nicely. Burrell's guitar is very strongly upfront in the mix – working chromatic magic at a level hardly ever matched again on record! Side one features the extended "Asphalt Canyon Suite" – a magnificent tune that's simply sublime – and side two features 5 shorter tracks, "Things Ain't What They Used To Be", "Put A Little Love In Your Heart", "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "Going To Jim & Andy's", and "Sugar Hill". CD
(SHM-CD pressing!) This title is scheduled for release about Wednesday, June 16.

Josh LawrenceTriptych ... CD
Posi tone, 2019. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
A really wonderful album from trumpeter Josh Lawrence – a very strong-voiced talent who's got a way of being bright and sharp at the same time, and who can always bring lots of his own compositional strengths to bear as well! The core group is a quartet – with Lawrence blowing beautifully over piano from Zaccai Curtis, bass from Luques Curtis, and drums from Anwar Marshall – and the set also features some great alto from Caleb Curtis on two tracks, balancing out the sound of Josh in this strongly soulful spirit! Brian Charette brings some organ to the album's final track – a great remake of the Earth Wind & Fire tune "That's The Way Of The World" – and all other titles are Lawrence originals, with tunes that include "We're Happiest Together", "Composition #2", "Wind", "Earth", "Sugar Hill Stroll", and "Sunset In Santa Barbara".

Chess, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
We couldn't think of a better title for this one – as every track is a winner! The Moonglows are, to us, doo wop at its best – hanging here between the rough styles of earlier years, and the overproduced work of later ones. The group are working near accapella here – with just a bit of rhythmic backing and guitar – in a style that glides with effortless magic that few other groups, no matter how great, could ever hope to match! Titles include "Ten Commandments Of Love", "In My Diary", "Sincerely", "Blue Velvet", "Penny Arcade", "Over & Over Again", and the sublime "Most Of All". LP, Vinyl record album

SylviaPillow Talk ... LP
Vibration, 1973. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Wonderful stuff from Sylvia Robinson – the singer who scored big as a youngster in the Mickey & Sylvia group, and who later became the den mother of hip hop with her Sugar Hill label. This set was recorded during the time that Sylvia had a very successful run with her New Jersey group of soul labels like All Platinum and Stang – and it's a monument to her breathy sexy style, and is probably one of the raunchiest records to hit the top of the charts in the early 70s. The hit single "Pillow Talk" was bedroom fodder for couples all over the world – but the whole record's pretty darn nice, and equally sexy! Features the great "Didn't I", a slinky groover with a good sample riff – plus "Give It Up In Vain", "Had Any Lately", and "My Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Philly Joe Jones & Elvin JonesPhilly Joe Jones & Elvin Jones Together! ... CD
Atlantic (Germany), 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
A stunner of an album – and one that definitely draws plenty power from the double drummers in the lead! The set's way different than most of Elvin Jones' other work of the time – and is even more hard-hitting than some of the Philly Joe Jones sessions too – and, unusual for Atlantic Records at the time, the tracks are all quite long – with a very open, freewheeling sound! There's some great horn players who really help shape the sound of the tunes – Hank Mobley on tenor, Blue Mitchell on trumpet, and Curtis Fuller on trombone – and the piano of Wynton Kelly and bass of Paul Chambers ensure that the music is right in the groove. The set features three long tracks – "Brown Sugar", "Le Roi", and "Beau-ty". CD

Odion IruojeDown To Earth ... LP
Odion Limited (Nigeria), 1983. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Odion Iruoje is billed as the "Sound President" on the cover – a title he definitely deserves, given the amazing sound of this set – which mixes early 80s Nigerian electro sounds with a bit of influence from hip hop too! Iruoje's completely comfortable in both mides – and can craft grooves that flow effortlessly on waves of basslines, skittish guitar, and snapping percussion – mixing electric elements on keyboards with rootsier touches on talking drums – but all in a way that's completely organic, and opens up on some beautifully open, extended grooves! The leadoff track – "Identify With Your Root" – has a riff and a rhyme that would have been right at home on Sugarhill Records – but other cuts – like "Love Care" and "Aro Affair" – have some spacey keyboard bits and fuzz that almost moves into William Onyebor territory! Other cuts include "Ikebe", "Anogo Giri", and "Alhaja & Obiageri". LP, Vinyl record album

Not the same Bluenotes group that recorded with Harold Melvin back in the day – but a reworked combo with similar Philly roots, and one who definitely keeps the legacy of their sound alive and well! This isn't a group put together to cover the oldies club circuit – as instead, they've revised their name, and have younger singer Sugarbear Aikens in the lead – a deep-voiced vocalist with an approach that's different than Teddy Pendergrass or other Bluenotes singers – but which rolls across here with a similar blend of groove and mellow soul! Butch Ingram produced and arranged, with instrumentation from the rest of the Ingram family – and titles include "Don't Say Goodbye", "Sorry", "Where Is My Baby", "Never Too Late", "Somebody told Me", "Wait A Minute", and "Oh How It Hurts".

✨✧ Carver Seniors Class Of 83Get Live 83/Carver Senior Song ... 12-inch
Challenger, 1982. Very Good+ (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A high school record, but also one of the first hip hop singles to come out of Chicago! Given that in the early 80s, Chi-town was still focusing mostly on soul (and soon, house), the Windy City was way behind New York in terms of hip hop production – and most early rap efforts came out as novelty tunes by local personalities. But this little gem has a surprising level of quality – simple old school backings at best, copping a Sugarhill groove from the start – but some nicely scripted lyrics from a number of Carver High School seniors, presented in a way that's a bit more staid than the usual east coast single – but still quite nice, especially in comparison with the ballad on the flipside! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Positive ExpressChangin' Times ... LP
Victory, 1982. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great soul harmony trio – and one with a solid 80s groove! Positive Express recorded this one-off set for a smaller Sugarhill subsidiary in the early 80s – working in a tradition that goes back to the earlier All Platinum/Stang harmony work of the 70s (the group kicks off the set with a cover of an early Moments tune), but which also soars along on some bouncier, boogie-oriented grooves that are totally great. There's a snapping quality to most of the tracks – bringing an almost rollerskating groove to some of the best tunes – handled in a stripped-down indie soul mode that's totally great. Redd Hott provide the backings, and titles include a version of The Moments' "Not On the Outside", plus "Time Is Changing", "Welcome To The Party", "Do Me", "Love Injection", and "A Special Love Song".

Wonderful! This is a lost bit of New Jersey funk on the Turbo label, featuring a group that includes Doug Wimbish and Skip McDonald before they became part of the Sugarhill house band, and then part of the On-U Sound collective. The album's a great mix of warmly soulful instrumental grooving – with some tracks that have a tight uptempo feel, and others that are slower and harder, but equally jazzy. The whole thing's the kind of funky record that you'd love to find while digging through the crates – and it's had long life over the past few decades, thanks to the rich variety of tunes on the set. Includes the classic cut "Funkanova", an uptempo jazzy intrumental that continued to be a club favorite throughout the house years – plus loads of other good cuts, too, like "WBS Theme" and a version of "Always There".

✨✧ JonesesKeepin' Up With The Joneses ... LP
Mercury, 1974. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A seminal set from The Joneses – and a record that really set a whole new style for soul vocal groups in the 70s! The group soar into new heights with some of the growing sophistication of the east coast scene – bits of strings, tighter charts, and some cool pre-disco grooves – but they also really hold onto all their humanity, too – and still come across with all the charm of an indie group from a few years before – something that only a rare few of their contemporaries, like Blue Magic, could do at the time! The ballad cuts have this really fragile quality that's wonderful – while the groovers come across with this sense of pride and confidence that rivals the best at Philly International. The whole record's great – and titles include the classic two-part groover "Sugar Pie Guy (parts1 & 2)", plus "I Promise You", "I Can't See What You See In Me", "Fire", "Hey Babe (parts 1 & 2)", and "Please Let Me Stay".

Illegal Arts, 1980s/1990s/Mid 2000s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Bedrock beatcraft and DJ mix mastery from Steve Stein – including the hugely important Double Dee & Steinski mixes of the early 80s – paired up with solid later work for this excellent 2CD compilation! The Double Dee & Steinski stuff really couldn't be more important to the turntablist scene of the mid 80s, and its influence stretches up to and beyond the mash up DJs of the 00s. Monumental DJ funk and deftly blended samples. Astounding! Disc 1 is the retrospective material – featuring benchmark Double Dee & Steinski mixes: "The Payoff Mix", "Lesson 2 (James Brown Mix)", "Lesson 3 (History Of Hip Hop)", "Jazz" and "Voice Mail (Sugarhill Mix)" – plus the Steinski tracks "The Motorcade Sped On", "I'm Wild About That Thing", "Ain't No Thing", "Number Three On Flight Eleven" and more. Disc 2 is Nothing To Fear – A Rough Mix By Steinski – done for Solid Steel Productions and BBC London – 28 continuous cuts including "Swingset (10 beautiful girls mix)", "The Id (small world mix)", "By All Means Necessary (Malcolm & Bobby mix)", "I Like It Like That (Scratch It One Time mix)" "Country Grammar (hydro mix)", "Funk Construction (Prodigal Son mix)" and lots more. It's all in the title – it's a rougher set with the scratch & cut effects, bit not as dance club bubbly as other Steinski work. CD
