USHER – Coming Home (Clear Vinyl, 2LP)

Double clear vinyl. Usher has changed music, culture, and countless lives. The multiple GRAMMY Award-winning diamond-selling international megastar, actor, dancer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist inspires change yet again in 2023 and beyond. Selling over 80 million records worldwide and collecting dozens of awards, he has simultaneously lit up the small screen on NBC’s The Voice and the big screen in blockbusters such as Hustlers. He has also tirelessly distinguished himself as a devout humanitarian, raising tens of millions of dollars for various causes and uplifting youth via his New Look Foundation. Since 1999 he has been providing opportunities for young people in underserved communities and enabling them to flourish and achieve seemingly impossible dreams. A true outlier, he is equally at home on the stage of his sold out My Way Las Vegas residency as he was on a 2016 government cultural mission to Cuba as part of President Barack Obama’s Presidential Committee for Arts and Humanities. This album marks the creative reunion of Usher and L.A. Reid, who haven’t worked together since 2004’s Diamond certified Confessions. The album was mainly recorded in Atlanta, GA with many of Atlanta’s hottest producers including Sean Garrett, Lil John, The Avila Brothers, Mel & Mus, Tricky Stewart, Rico Love, The-Dream, Jermaine Dupri, D Mile among many others. USHER is the 2024 Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show Performer.

J Dilla – Ruff Draft: Dilla’s Mix (Clear Vinyl, Black)

Limited clear with black colored vinyl LP pressing. When Ruff Draft saw it’s 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. This definitive reissue of Ruff Draft takes Dilla’s recently discovered mixes of the album – only ever issued on the rare, original vinyl EP – and restores his vision for the project… “straight from the mothaf***in’ cassette,” as he phrased the sound he was going for on the intro.

Living Colour – Vivid (180 Gram Viny)l

180 gram audiophile black vinyl. As one of the most influential rock groups in the late eighties, Living Colour proved that blending Hard Rock with Funk, Soul, Rap, and Punk can be a very successful undertaking. Their debut Vivid (1988) took some time to build up steam but eventually turned heads worldwide as the sheer quality of this album inevitably rose to the surface. Vivid spawned the hits “Glamour Boys” featuring Mick Jagger on backing vocals, and “Cult Of Personality”, which was awarded a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance in 1989. The single “Funny Vibe” features Chuck D and Flavor Flav from Public Enemy.

Mazzy Star – So Tonight That I Might See (Violet Purple Black Smoke Colored Vinyl)

On the band’s second album, the core emphasis remained a nexus point between country, folk, psych, and classic rock all shrouded in mystery, and Hope Sandoval’s trademark drowsy drawl remained swathed in echo. The hit single “Fade Into You” brought Mazzy Star unprecedented success.
