Artist: The Jones Girls Songs/Album: "You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else" (A Side)/ "Who Can I Run To"(B Side) - The Jones Girls Year: 1979 Label: Philadelphia International Records Location: Goodwill (North Hollywood) Price: $1.99
I originally thought that Xscape sung Who Can I Run To but it turns out it was the The Jones Girls. The records caught my eye because I usually always grab covers of songs I like. Though this actually is the original and not a cover. But its "You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else" that makes me glad that I bought this records. Its got a funky guitar and bass line, it'll definitely have people dancin'. This was actually a popular song but I admit that I never heard it.
This is some straight up old school G-Funk west coast hip hop. Representing Tuscon, Shug sounds like a combination of Tupac and Ice Cube, he is definitely an artist to check for if you come across one of his records. Check some of his other songs on the album posted online.
Artist: Bootsy's Rubber Band Album: This Boot Was Made For Fonk-N Year: 1979 Label: Warner Bros. Price: ??? (Less then $5)
Bootsy Collinsis mostly recognized because of his rhinestoned outfits and animated voice, but Bootsy Collin is badass on the bass and deserves the attention and recognition that he gets. “This Boot Is Made for Fonk’n”is a great album, though not as successful as previous albums it still should be added to any P-Funk collection. With members ofThe Horny Hornsproviding the background and Bootsy on the bass this album definitely deserves a listen.
I bought records before I even had turntables, as dumb as that sounds. I was still saving for the decks but in the mean time all I could think of the records I wanted to listen to when I got them, so I bought 'em. It was an incentive to me, save money buy turntables, play records. I had a reasonable amount by the time I got my turntables and not yet knowing how to mix or scratch (hard to scratch on Numark "DJ in a Box") I would just listen to the records. Finding new songs, new artists and just loving music. Hopefully you'll like the music that's been posted and we learn about "new" artists together.
