Edan - Rapperfiction 12" (Lewis Recordings, 2000)
Edan - Torture Chamber Remix 12" (Lewis Recordings, 2005)
James Brown - Presents His Show Of Tomorrow (King, 1968)
A nice compilation from King Records that features cuts from JB, Vicki Anderson, Bobby Byrd, Marva Whitney, and others. This was a trade that I couldn't resist since the record was in such great condition.
Grootna - S/T (Columbia, 1972)
A solid rock record that sounds more a bit more Texas than California, and that ain't so bad!
Circus Maximus - S/T (Vanguard, 1967)
Womb - S/T (Dot, 1967)
Still fully digesting this psych rock lp, but so far it sounds incredibly promising and makes a real nice addition to the collection.
Archie Bell & The Drells - There's Gonna Be A Showdown (Atlantic, 1969)
Curtis Mayfield - Sweet Exorcist (Curtom, 1974)
Tower Of Power - East Bay Grease (San Francisco, 1970)
Cross the last three off my long time wants list. Finally! Strangely, I can't remember ever seeing this Tower Of Power album in the wild. I love their horn arrangements, and think they are consistently overlooked for their songwriting as well.
Freda Payne - Band Of Gold (Invictus, 1970)
I bought this one on a recommendation from dude at the spot, and once I dropped the needle on the first cut and instantly recognized the title song, I had to bring it on home. There are a couple songs on the album that should be of interest to rap nerds, particularly the last cut 'The Easiest Way to Fall' which so dope and provides the sample source for JVC Force's 'Strong Island'.
Betty Wright - Danger High Voltage (Alston, 1974)
I have quitely been picking up all the Betty Wright lp's I can track down. So far, all her 70's output is pretty strong. Plus, I love her outfit on the album cover.
The Time - S/T (Warner Brothers, 1981)
I consistently pass on this album because I see it everywhere and know that I can pretty much always land a used copy... but I finally scooped this one up and have been jamming to 'Get it Up' almost everyday.
