14564980_374010102932452_5267591944741060608_n

More from Black Friday RSD 2016! We’ve got another strong batch here, and the UGX x Outcast Texas-shaped die cut of “Int’l Players Anthem (I Choose You)” is just so dope. Comb & Razon Sound’s compilation of RARE Nigerian gems, Calabar-Itu Road – Groovy Sounds from South Eastern Nigeria, is also essential, and for the first time ever, we’re blessed with some deep James Brown material on James Brown’s Funky People Part 3 Vinyl 2LP. Speaking of funk, Isaac Hayes’ epic “Do Your Thing” is on vinyl for the 1st time, and the Afrocentric, “hip-house” 2nd album from the fun and conscious Jungle Brothers, Done By The Forces of Nature is deservingly put on double LP, you guessed it, for the first time ever. The pretty clear pink vinyl in the middle captures an evening with the legendary jazz musician Ornette Coleman, and finishing out this funky bunch is 180g pressing of live recordings (recorded at Monteral’s rising Sun Celebrity Club in 1978), from the trumpet legend Chet Baker, limited to just 4000 copies worldwide.

More Black Friday Record Store Day 2016 releases! You’ve seen the bootlegs, but this is the first official vinyl release of Bob Dylan’s The Real Royal Albert Hall 1966 Concert, for which the folk god went electric for a rowdy Manchester crowd. Don’t worry, the first half is all acoustic, but flip the record over and you get to experience a different side of Dylan. Also in available now is the latest release from the Pickathon vinyl series, with Angel Olsen and Steve Gunn sharing a LP w/ live recordings from 2014. Nothing but hits on the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Explore Equestria Pic Disc, and why even bother with a wreath when you can hang the “Christmas In Hollis” Pic Disc on your door this holiday season! We also got the SCENTED BROWN VINYL pressing of Mr. Hankey’s Christmas Classics for South Park lovers, and the indie rock outfit Rogue Wave takes on some of the biggest songs from the ’80s on Cover Me, pressed on an aptly colored opaque hot pink vinyl. Last but not least, Rootah and Disrupt dub out a track from the dub godfather Lee “Scratch” Perry. See above for more Black Friday RSD2016 releases!

Respect The Classics: 2Pac “2Pacalypse Now” Vinyl 2LP and The Roots “Illadelph Halftime” Vinyl 2LP Reissued

The Roots Illadelph Halftime Vinyl 2LP

roots-illadelphhalflife

With two albums under their belts, the legendary Roots crew released Illadelph Halflife in 1996. The samples-meets-live-instrumentation sound is truly something the Philly icons owned, and this is the LP that really opened up the group’s sound to a wider audience. Couple Questlove, Kamal, Hub, Rahze, and Scratch’s music with lyrics from Black Thought, it’s no coincidence that songs like “Section,” “Clones,” “It Just Don’t Stop,” and “UNIverse at War” still band after 20 years. Much respect to the Respect The Classics series for repressing this hip-hop classic.

2Pac 2Pacalypse Now Vinyl 2LP

2pac-2pacalypsenow

Another addition to the Respect The Classics series is the debut album from 2Pac. Originally released in 1991, this year marks the 25th anniversary of 2Pacalpyse Now, the album that highlights the late MC’s views on racism, poverty, teenage pregnancy, police brutality, and other societal ills. ‘Pac would go on to personify the “THUG LIFE” that he is more often associated with due to the subject matter of his subsequent works, but in songs like “Trapped,” “I Don’t Give A Fuck,” “Soulja’s Story,” and “Brenda’s Got A Baby,” the rap great offers a sharp, retaliative message toward real issues that are, unfortunately, still relevant today. A certified hip-hop classic without a doubt, and we’re glad to see a 180g reissue of the album.
