    His most slept-on album. Features Red Callender on the tuba. Red played with Mingus, Tatum, Gordon, Bird, and Garner. If you've never heard a bebop tuba solo... Do yourself a favor... While you are at it, listen to tuba in place of bass guitar on an electric blues album. So so sweet. #timsturntable #dustyfingers

  18. Macy Gray - The Id

    16 For Sale from $6.99

    This joint got lost in the shake up at the start of the century. The album was released the week after 9/11. The first single was released the week before, then of course forgotten. The second was released a couple of months later and it was hard for anyone to care. IMHO this album is among the finest examples of neo soul of the era, and ranks up there with D'angelo's Voodoo, released a year prior. The Id is also a Rick Rubin production no one talks about. I love poppy textures that hold up to critical listening. #timsturntable #dustyfingers

  19. Chino Horde - Chino Horde

    4 For Sale from $11.14

    Five months before Enter the Wu-Tang was released... Two months before Euronymous of Mayhem was stabbed to death... The same month that ground was broken on the rock and roll hall of fame... A month before Fugazi put out their first "grown up" album... Just days before Prince changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol... The very same day Janet Jackson released that record where that guy is holding her sweet tender boobies... File Thirteen No.10 was unleashed on the unsuspecting masses. Those masses, twenty years later, remain unsuspecting. #timsturntable knows what's up. #likeanemotion #dustyfingers

  20. John Coltrane - A Love Supreme

    3 For Sale from $23.50

    "ELATION-ELEGANCE-EXALTATION. All from God. Thank you God. Amen." - John Coltrane So many moments frozen in vinyl make my neck hairs stand on end. Just as this was music passing through the corporeal as if the player's body was no more than a medium, so does the sound transcend time. 1964 was only the year. An eternal message was captured then for all listeners to receive. #timsturntable #dustyfingers

  21. Stevie Wonder - I Was Made To Love Her

    30 For Sale from $1.25

    The first words sung on this album are autobiographical to many of my loved ones who sing along. This goes out to @allpurposecracker and @katielmohr who celebrate their 15th anniversary today. Also, 15 years ago today, @allpurposecracker's best man was nearly kicked out of his wedding reception for enthusiastically dancing with a folding chair! I would have featured the record that was playing, but I sadly can't recall the song. #stonesoberbutactingafool #timsturntable #dustyfingers

  22. Sly & The Family Stone - There's A Riot Goin' On

    36 For Sale from $6.49

    Times were changing. People had been excited about phallic spaceships going to the moon. Hippies, activists, and artists had branded themselves as unified against war. When the 60's ended, the hangover was intense. The Beatles called it quits, Don McLean said "bye bye" to "American pie," Elvis started getting fat and hanging out with Nixon, and Johnny Cash became "the man in black." A fire breaking out at a Zappa concert inspired "Smoke on the Water" causing hundreds of thousands of untalented and stoned youth to buy guitars, and possibly the first "head-bang." 1971 also brought Zeppelin's "Stairway," Bowie's "Hunky Dory," Alice Cooper's "Killer," and the formal establishment of heavy metal with Sabbath's "Master of Reality." "There's A Riot Goin On" was released 4 months after Jim Morrison's body was found dead in a bathtub. the Sly Stone had fired the white folks on his staff and locked himself in a studio at home with a case of drugs and a primitive drum machine (He'd fired his drummer.) Most of the music was played by Sly and various R&B and funk artists of the time instead of his band. The result should have been catastrophic. Instead, a collection of brilliant experiments emerged. The master tape was saturated with overdubs, creating extra texture and noise. Pure dark and raw funk lays the foundation, as the upbeat moments have a sarcastic tone predicting the emergence of punk. The drum machine sound was engineered to hallucinogenic perfection. In fact, this album is one of the first to feature a drum machine. It's interesting that this was also the year Richard D. James (Aphex Twin) was born... In fact, Timbaland, Method Man, Erykah Badu, Damon Dash, Craig Mack, Tupac, Missy Elliot, MC Breed, MC Lyte, Lil Jon, Questlove, Mary J. Blige, and Snoop Dogg were all born that year. Ok... So were Kid Rock and Marky Mark. I regret that I no longer have the original cover for this picture. It's one of my favorites. Listen to "Runnin' Away" to get a taste. TL;DR: I like this. Marky Mark. #timsturntable #dustyfingers #funkyfriday

  23. KutMasta Kurt* Presents Masters Of Illusion - Kut Masta Kurt Presents Masters Of Illusion

    11 For Sale from $22.00

    2000 represented a paradigm shift. Not just the rolling of the 90's moral subjectivism into moral panic. The music industry had been waging war, in secret, on it's customers. 2000 was the year that the industry demonstrated air superiority. Metallica sued Napster and within a few months, Napster was the new BMG Club. The year seemed to be a barren field of record-breaking Britney Spears "Oops! I Did It Again" and 'N Sync "No Strings Attached" CD coasters. Every band in the world suffering from the 1999 party hangover put out a "best of" disc. As a solid representation of the zeitgeist, The Marshall Mathers LP joined the ranks record breakers.

  24. Willie Nelson - Shotgun Willie

    1973 was a huge year for recorded music. In fact, I could devote several weeks out of my collection to it. I'll just say "Dark Side of the Moon," "Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ," and "Catch a Fire." I'll add some tags for 1973 stuff. Shotgun Willie represents a shift in genre for #timsturntable; however, the shift is not as severe as one would surmise. Willie Nelson became the first country artist on Atlantic Records for this album. Interestingly, it was recorded both in NYC at Atlantic Studios and in Memphis at Sam Phillips. Shotgun Willie is regarded as the first album of the "Outlaw Country" scene. While the outlaws are stylistically defined by their rock n roll attitudes and break with Nashville tradition, I see the integration of the Rhythm and Blues from Atlantic Records as the real departure. It's no secret that Willie is a fan of jazz and swing. If you listen to this record, pay attention to the electric bass sound. You'll notice that the shift in genre for #timsturntable is actually pretty subtle. Shotgun Willie is one of my favorite records. It sounds brilliant. It's Willie at his freshest best. Side A, Track 2 is Willie's version of Whiskey River brilliantly arranged with funky bass and setting the tone for a perfect album when it bridges into traditional country with the poetic lyrics: I'm drowning in a whiskey river, bathing my memory'd mind in the wetness of it's soul. Feeling the amber currents flowing from my mind, and leaving the heart you left so cold. #dustyfingers #1973albums #texasisntallsucky

  25. Aphex Twin - ...I Care Because You Do

    14 For Sale from $3.00

    Hiphop didn't have wings to spread. Hiphop is the allegorical DNA in musical expression that gives wings color. Kurtis Blow's "If I Ruled the World," as featured in Crush Groove, was released only ten years prior to Aphex Twin's "...I Care Because You Do." (To put that into perspective - ten years ago today, it was 2003: The year the USA invaded Iraq, and just before 50 Cent invaded Evanescence's Grammy acceptance.) "If I Ruled the World" split hiphop production's genes. The thermodynamic turbulence, generated by drum machine and sampled groove, rolls on today. William Gibson wrote "...the street finds its own uses for things." When the street, far removed from the experiments of music concrete, found digital sampling, the new palette of beat-based music rapidly led hiphop into its golden age. I don't file "...I Care Because You Do" In "hiphop," but I do listen to it as such. Richard James had gone from the club scene and dance music to studio breaks. His introversion was his "hiphop narcissism." I characterize this album this way because the beats are DOPE. In 1995, while other electronic music artists were using breaks to create jungle or neo-electro, Richard James created something completely unique, melodic, and rugged. This is not urban futurism, though. This is possibly rural futurism... or perhaps urban folk...? Also in 1995: Aphex Twin had a remix on NIN's "Further Down the Spiral," I started college, and both Eazy-E and Jerry Garcia died. These great albums were released: Big L - Lifestylez ov da Poor & Dangerous Deicide - Once Upon the Cross Mobb Deep - The Infamous Bjork - Post GZA - Liquid Swords Raekwon - Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... #timsturntable #1995 #dustyfingers
