In a cramped club on the lower east side of Manhattan, armed with only an electric guitar, Jeff Buckley stunned audiences with his mysterious, emotionally uncompromising live sets, packed with eclectic covers and his own originals. The four-track Live at Sin-e EP, released in 1993 was his debut release for Columbia Records; here it's expanded as a numbered, limited edition in a deluxe hard-shell slipcase housing four individually designed LP jackets and an eight page, full color booklet of photos and liner notes.

Can I Borrow A Dollar?

New Vinyl: $41.98 Buy

While hip-hop was experiencing a creative revolution in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the genre was still somewhat restricted geographically, primarily dominated by New York City and Los Angeles.  Acclaimed artist Common was among the first successful rappers from elsewhere, officially putting Chicago on the hip-hop map with this debut album Can I Borrow A Dollar?.  Released in 1992, the album is a vintage boom-bap masterpiece, with famed producer No I.D. behind the boards on 12 of 13 tracks.  It also marks the beginning of a storied career, as Common would go on to release three gold albums, create classics with the likes of J Dilla and Kanye West, win multiple Grammys and even an Academy Award, and land several major roles as an actor.  Long out-of-print, Can I Borrow A Dollar? is now back on 2LP vinyl while supplies last.  This 25th anniversary edition also includes a bonus 7” featuring the rare B-side “Can-I-Bust” and the instrumental for the single “Breaker 1/9”. 

A Penny For My Thoughts, Charms Alarm, Take It EZ, Heidi Hoe, Breaker 1/9, Two Scoops Of Raisins, No Defense, Blows To The Temple, Just In The Nick Of Rhyme, Tricks Up My Sleeve, Puppy Chow, Soul By The Pound, Pitchin’ Pennies, Can-I-Bust (Bonus), Breaker 1/9 Instrumental (Bonus)

J Dilla

The producer’s own mixes – recently rediscovered - of his seminal EP, expanded with bonus tracks into a 2LP set, with extensive liner notes and unpublished photos.
When Ruff Draft saw its initial release in 2003, J Dilla possessed production skills on par with anyone in hip-hop – technically and creatively. “At the top of his game,” says longtime friend and collaborator, Karriem Riggins. After years of building while modestly deferring to others of both greater and lesser notoriety, Dilla finally completed the first solo endeavor on his own label, entirely on his own terms. The significance of such an autonomous success often gets overlooked, and partly accounts for why Ruff Draft is one of the lesser-referenced entries in Dilla’s oeuvre. “It’s a mysterious little project,” says his mother, Maureen Yancey. “But out of his entire career, that was the happiest time.”

Prior to recording the EP, Dilla found himself at a crossroads. Estranged from his label, MCA, and separated from the mother of his youngest daughter, frustration abounded both personally and professionally. Dilla spent parts of 2002 and 2003 working on an album for MCA that featured his rapping over contributions from other producers with whom he had connected and whose music he respected. At the time, he was known primarily for his beats, yet reviled for his MCing by most anyone not from his hometown of Detroit. The project was to be an intentional freak of the industry.

The project would go on to spur his collaborative album with Madlib, Jaylib, and would first showcase the template that he would take to his greatest heights with 2006’s Donuts. The Stones Throw reissue of Ruff Draft from 2008 featured remixes of the songs from the album, done without Dilla’s involvement. This version of the album takes Dilla’s recently discovered mixes of the album and restores his vision for the project. “Straight from the mothafuckin’ cassette,” as he phrased the sound he was going for on the EP’s intro. It is buttressed by unreleased tracks and is presented in two versions: LP one is the EP as it was originally released; LP 2 is the alternate version that Dilla had for the project. Author Ronnie Reese expands upon his original liner notes to further tell Dilla’s story, in a booklet complete with never before published photographs from the Ruff Draft photo session.

California

New Vinyl: $19.98 Buy

​The California EP pays homage to Wes’ first full-length release, Florida, where he spent much of his youth. The sonics on California share a similar tone: slow, vibey, & melancholic, a bit of a departure from the sound he has been known for in recent years. The vibe of the EP is somewhat dark, contrary to the warm and carefree lifestyle one would expect of someone living in California. This may very well be a reflection of the bleak underside of fame & excess in Hollywood​.​ The EP is much more than just a handful of tracks​; it's an introspective body of work.  Diplo has recruited industry heavyweights and newcomers alike, including Santigold, Dram, Lil’ Yachty, MØ, Goldlink and more, as well as LA-based artist, February James, who was commissioned to create inspired portraits of each of the artists that appear on the EP, housed in the gatefold jacket. 

SIDE A Worry No More (feat. Lil Yachty & Santigold), Look Back (feat. DRAM)
SIDE B Get It Right (feat. MØ & GoldLink) [Remix] Plus 3 currently unreleased tracks.

When Fleet Foxes visited Reykjavik last fall for the local Iceland Airwaves festival, they recorded this stunning version of "Crack Up", the title track from last year's critically adored album. Adding to the majesty of the song is Graduale Nobili, the 24 piece choir known for their work with Bjork. The B-side of this RSD 2018 single is a live take on "In The Morning" originally written by Barry Gibb, recorded at last summer's Montreux Jazz Festival.

One of the earliest MC5 singles! Packaged in new envelope style sleeves, with rare unseen band photos! The Motor City Five pressed on black vinyl at Third Man Pressing in the Motor City! Includes brand spankin’ new liners by David Fricke of Rolling Stone, who says, “In a 1966 live recording, the MC5 played ‘Looking at You’ like Motown raga. At United Sound, the band hit the zigzag riff at light speed and stayed there, framed by searing lead guitar and explosive drumming. ‘Borderline’ was a frantic jigsaw of power-chord jolts and sheet-like harmonies detonated again, at the Grande, for the live recording of the MC5's first LP, Kick Out the Jams.”

Nazz's second album was to be a double album (as per Todd's wishes), called Fungo Bat. Recording began in Nov 1968 and completed in Spring (March) 1969.

Patty Smyth and Scandal

Patty Smyth, both with her hit band Scandal and as a solo artist, is a true "New Wave Queen" and has always been, at heart, a rock and roll chick, and that's no truer today, now that she's back on the road.. If Smyth did nothing but marry New York punk poet Richard Hell (Television, Voidoids), then noted tennis punk and commentator John McEnroe, that would be amazing enough, but she's also earned both Oscar and Grammy nominations and recorded a series of hit singles and albums. Smyth was born in New York City, and had a very bohemian upbringing. Her mother managed legendary guitarist Link Wray and ran or owned several prominent Greenwich Village nightclubs, including the Gaslight, the Café Wha?. The group burst onto the scene in 1982 with a self-titled debut EP that turned out to be the best-selling EP in Columbia Records history, featuring the hit single, "Goodbye to You," a #1 MTV video. Scandal included the hits "Love's Got a Line on You" and "Win Some, Lose Some" on the group's first full-length album, "The Warrior", released in 1984, climbing into the Top 20 on the sales chart, eventually earning RIAA-certified platinum status. "The Warrior" remains popular to this day, featured on the radio station Flash FM in the video game Grand Theft Auto and in the third installment of Guitar Hero, Rocks the '80s. After Scandal broke up, Smyth's hard edged vocals caused Eddie Van Halen to invite her to join Van Halen (when she was 8 months pregnant!) but she declined. The first 3 sides were recorded at the Agora Ballroom in New Haven, Ct. on July 15, 1983 and side 4 was recorded from a date at Indiana University on October 22, 1984.

Spice 1 was first discovered by Bay Area legend Too $hort and became a member of $hort’s group The Dangerous Crew. Though lacking the national name recognition of Too $hort, Spice 1 is a legend all his own in and around the Bay. His name is an acronym for Sex, Pistols, Indo, Cash and Entertainment – also a fitting description of topics he rhymes about. Before dropping his debut full-length Spice 1 dropped an EP in ’91 on California Indy label Triad Records. The EP peaked at # 69 on the R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart, no small feat. With sales this brisk, he was picked up by Jive Records and this, his self-titled debut, was issued the next year. Week one sales were disappointing, but that all turned around the following week with 900,000 scans, a Gold record and a permanent spot in Bay Area Hip Hop history.  THIS RELEASE WILL BE DISTRIBUTED NATIONWIDE BUT WILL PRIMARILY BE FOUND IN CALIFORNIA RECORD STORES.

35th Anniversary reissue of Punk rock collaboration (UK SUBS' Charlie Harper with THE VIBRATORS' Knox, with the Subs Alvin Gibbs plus Matthew Best), + bonus, previously unreleased LP with 3 7" b-sides and a live gig. First time on vinyl since the original 1983 release. Limited Edition in RED vinyl. Gatefold sleeve with the original artwork, a photo-collage by Knox (in tribute to the Stones' Exile on Main Street cover).
In 1983 the UK Subs and the Vibrators found themselves at a loose end after some lengthy touring. Old friends Charlie Harper and Ian 'Knox' Carnochan got together and started making some music they shared a common love for.
Along with a cover of the New York Dolls and Iggy & the Stooges, they added their own compositions that fitted. A couple of punk classics emerged; 'New Barbarians' and 'Limo Life' were both chosen for release as 7" singles. Charlie and Knox, as the Urban Dogs went on to record a number of further albums together, and the collaboration continues to this day.

Filmed largely during Daptones December 2014 three-night, sold-out residency at the historic Apollo Theater, the documentary features a mixture of live performances and verite scenes that paint a robust picture of the Daptone family and culture. Not since James Browns legendary residencies in the '70s has Harlem's Apollo Theater played host to such an event.
