These guys make The Village People look like ZZ Top in terms of over the top gayness.
First Star* - All I Want To Do

Wow, where did this come from? I can't speak to the rest of the LP but the b-side here-"My Grip Is Like A Cobra", the album's title track-has one of the dopest beats of the era and some rock solid rhymes from a legit female MC. Totally lost to the... See full review
John Coltrane - The Africa Brass Sessions, Vol. 2
posted a comment on John Coltrane - The Africa Brass Sessions, Vol. 2. over 4 years ago
Amazingly enough these are the tracks/versions that didn't make the first Africa Brass LP. How Impulse Records sat on a track as incredible as "Song Of The Underground Railroad" for some ten years is inexplicable, it's one of Coltrane's five best... See full review

The record where Springsteen cements his reputation as one of the great american short story writers of the 20th century. At least one film has been based on a song from this album (Sean Penn's "The Indian Runner" based on "Highway Patrolman") and i... See full review

If you haven't heard Merrill's rendition of "Lazy Afternoon" you're missing out on one of the greatest arrangements and vocal performances of all time. No other song from the 50s sounds as fresh today. The fourth of Merrill's five classic LPs recorded... See full review

Helen Merrill goes avant garde!! This might sound like a sacrilege but it actually works brilliantly as her voice drifts and soars above the cacophony with a natural ease only she could manage. I can't imagine any of Merrill's contemporaries of the... See full review

posted a comment on Helen Merrill - Something Special.... over 6 years ago
I believe this is a re-release of a record Merrill made with Dick Katz in 1967 called "The Feeling Is Mutual." The players are all the same and the track listing is identical with the exception of "You're My Thrill" which switches places on the A-side... See full review

It's hard for me to believe that after years spent chasing the world's best obscure records that i had never heard of this masterpiece until just a few days ago. This is a cross between David Axelrod's first two records, Impulse era Mingus, Italian... See full review

posted a review of Reality (15) - A Taste Of The Bass / Righteous Revolution. over 6 years ago
this is quite possibly the rawest hip hop record i've ever heard-fusion beats volume 2 is the only other record that comes to mind in terms of aural fidelity and that was recorded on a boombox at a live show. both sides of this 45 are as great as any... See full review
