(Semi) NEW CHANNEL PROMOTING SOME OF THE MUSIC AND VIDEO PROJECTS I AM INVOLVED WITH!:

http://www.youtube.com/user/PHlRE/videos

^^^Channel went up 02-13-12 and things keep getting better with some recovered randomness from the terabytes upon terabytes of recordings laid out on the cutting room floor.
Here you could find a small selection of the 1000's of hip hop beats which we have for sale:

It is fine to inquire about anything I have contributed or have in my collection, whether for general info or for those interested in buying, etc.

Thank you to all the super buyers and suppliers of information found only here!

Otherwise still looking for a translator. Do you know a southern dialect of Mandarin Chinese? Help me......:>

I actually enjoyed this CD, and I bought it on a hunch to listen to when I know it's time to dumb it down a little. I was not disappointed; within 15 seconds of the intro, you will get to hear the rapper, "Just Bleezy" , explain, ass backwards, that... See full review

In regards to the notes I left about the record being "mono-reprocessed", when I listened closely I think the channel separation and balance / panning is better on this Duophonic release than the stereo release!

This record certainly did live up to its printed expectations, evoking a constant "turn it down so you don't piss off the room mates" feeling. Amazing for its time of creation (1970!) and the subsequent technology available to create it. 5/5

Rated 5, despite the fact that Eminem is on the b-side, and that this is a bootleg. "No Idea's Original" is supreme. Even the Barry White sample (I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More, Babe) a little overused at the time, suits this perfect.

Hello, if this is the original pressing of this from 1949, it is 33 RPM Microgroove as shown on labels and documented in books and many websites, so it is not one of Columbia's first 45's, but is an early 7" format.

Thanks,
