Alfredo Linares Y Su Sonora
Yo Traigo Boogaloo Record Store Day 2020 Edition
Vampisoul • 1969 • from 27.99€
What stumbles here from the Andes with Alfredo Linares, pours salsa sauce over quesadillas to wash it down with plenty of rum. Peru, piano, party – »Yo Traigo Boogaloo« shoots just right to install »Tropico 4« on the hard drive and pound a few dictatorships out of the ground, dance Cuban rumba on the roofs of Schwerin and finally suck the cocktails-all-simple-self-make-it-yourself book by Jamie Oliver disguised as a Christmas present 2014 out of the foil. Christoph Benkeser

Big L
The Danger Zone Record Store Day 2020 Edition
RBC • 2011 • from 38.99€
Big L’s fourth and last album, which was published posthumously in 2011, will be released on vinyl for the first time. Here you can find demo versions and previously unreleased tracks of the legendary rapper from Harlem, New York City. Refreshing flows and confident lines make the album a masterpiece of Bragging And Boasting. The feature list is considerable and stands for consistent underground rap: Among others, D.I.T.C., Gang Starr and Herb McGruff share the microphone with Lamont Coleman. Till Wilhelm

Boys Next Door, The (Nick Cave)
Door, Door Red Record Store Day 2020 Edition
Warner • 1980 • from 23.99€
Nick Cave hates his debut record. No wonder. At a time when the Australian was still regularly attacking statues of the Virgin Mary, he and his friends wrote “Door, Door “ an album that knew no boundaries between “The Queen is Dead”, “London’s Burning” and the Bee Gees. For Cave this is a blunder under a band name where you have to ask yourself seriously which grasses the boys were sucking on in Down Under. The Jesus shit is only two rehabs away, the life like punks on DMT: naked, zero, void. In 1988 Nick Cave wrote his best record.Christoph Benkser

Chet Baker
Young Chet Record Store Day 2020 Edition
Elemental • 2020 • from 41.99€

Curren$y
Pilot Talk Coke Bottle Green Record Store Day 2020 Edition
Empire • 2018 • from 18.99€
The discography of the Louisiana rapper is surprisingly scattered. After stations at Master P’s No Limit Records and Young Money Entertainment, Curren$y landed a distribution deal with RCA Records in 2010 and released »Pilot Talk«. The first of his albums to enter the US Billboard Top 50, Curren$y consolidated his status as a smart, detail-loving MC. Including: Production and background vocals by none other than Mos Def, a grandiose relic of the mixtape era. Till Wilhelm

Dave Pike
Jazz For The Jet Set Record Store Day 2020 Edition
Nature Sounds • 1966 • from 31.99€
When did people stop painting such covers for their records? In the sixties, of course. Dave Pike knocks around on the marimba, Herbie Hancock hits the organ, a crazy all-round beat through the pop year 66 with the best cover version of »Sunny« ever squeezed out of a jazz band. »Jazz For The Jet Set« dangles like a miracle tree in the Opel Manta, the climate-friendly middle finger for all those who board a plane for the Vienna-Munich route. Chrstiph Benkser

Mike Watt & The Secondmen
In Quintessance Record Store Day 2020 Edition
Yep Roc • 2020 • from 7.19€
At first sight it might be irritating: Mike Watt, bassist of legendary punk bands like Minutemen and fIREHOSE, joins an illustrious list of admirers of the British rock legend Squeeze with »In Quintessence« – besides Erykah Badu, Elvis Costello and the RootsAllerdings, Mike Watt’s oeuvre has always been too big for the punk rock drawer. With his long-term companions The Secondmen, he takes on the opener of the Squeeze debut album in classic power trio style, once with vocals, once instrumental. Andreas Schnell

Nocturnal Emissions
Tissue Of Lies White Record Store Day 2020 Edition
Mannequin • 1981 • from 29.99€
The post-industrial pioneers Nocturnal Emissions are being offered a reissue on white vinyl by the label Mannequin for the 40th anniversary of their debut album »Tissue of Lies«. Nocturnal Emissions, still consisting of Nigel Ayers and Caroline K in 1980, stirred up rumbling sound collages in the spirit of colleagues like Throbbing Gristle or Cabaret Voltaire, attacked their listeners with electronic noise and celebrated tribal factory floor radio. Underground heroes to get to know again. Tim Caspar Boehme

Notorious B.I.G., The (And Junior M.A.F.I.A.)
It Was All A Dream: The Notorious B.I.G. 1994-1999 Box Set Record Store Day 2020 Edition
Rhino Atlantic • 2020 • from 219.99€
If you are tired of picking out single albums of Notorious B.I.G., you should try this box set as soon as possible. This Vinyl 9LP is limited to 2.000 copies worldwide. There is a legacy in this package that we may never be able to comprehend, after all Biggie’s influence will be important for hip hop culture far into the future. Good bonus: Listening to Junior M.A.F.I.A. on vinyl is an extremely rare pleasure. Till Willhelm

Ol' Dirty Bastard
Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version 25th Anniversary Record Store Day 2020 Edition
RHINO • 2020 • from 129.99€
»Return To The 36 Chambers« turns 25 now. For its release, it has set standards, not only in terms of acoustic roughness, but also in the eloquence of the Wu Tang MC. ODB is a character, once you’ve heard it, you’ll probably never forget it. On nine Vinyl 7inches this album, which belongs to the underground like rats and ticket inspectors, is released on this year’s Record Store Day. Till Wilhelm

Sean Price & Small Professor
Latoya Jackson Record Store Day 2020 Edition
Coalmine • 2020 • from 12.99€
Rest in Peace, Sean P! To honor the memory of the exceptional MC, the posse cut »Latoya Jackson« appears as Vinyl 7″. As a guest on the A-side, Quelle Chris slides as soft as butter over the rough beat, on the B-side you’ll find the »Back To The Old School« remix with the only true Masta Ace. On the cover you can recognize him immediately, his performance is based on the artwork of the classic »A Long Hot Summer«. And also hot: The record itself is dipped in bright pink! Till Wilhelm

Solomon Burke
Back To My Roots Record Store Day 2020 Edition
Anagram Music • 1976 • from 56.99€
Solomon Burke, the Preacher from Philly, wrote the classic »Everybody Needs Somebody To Love« in 1964, influenced guys like Rod Stewart and Mick Jagger, and later got whitewashed by the Blues Brothers. For »Back To My Roots«, which burst into the disco era in 1976 like a baker at the Tik Tok convention for budding influencers, Burke tightens the vocal chords to work the bass with two fingers. Music to make children. Forever and ever. Christoph Benkeser
