60's and 70's Soul, Funk, Disco, Party-Rap and Boogie from Arkansas's Legendary Independent Label the final installment presented as an all inclusive 4xLP Anthology.
Now-Again Records, in association with label-owner Lee Anthony, is proud to present the release of True Soul: Deep Sounds from the Left of Stax, a collection of rare and unreleased funk and soul music from the fabled Arkansas indie. Over twelve years in the making, this anthology presented over the course of two volumes of CD/DVDs and one four-LP box set seeks to establish True Soul's rightful place within America's funk and soul pantheon.
As much as this set is about the adventurous, always-funky and oh-so-rare recordings that True Soul made possible, it is also about Anthony, the man. A true, American up-from-the-bootstraps story, Anthony's is one in which his frontiersman's entrepreneurial spirit and vision remains undeterred as he sets up black-owned businesses in a post-Jim Crow South and succeeds in capturing recordings from the high water mark of America's funk and soul movement.
Anthony's story intertwines with the renowned Sam Philips an early mentor and patron and Memphis's Al Bell and Willie Mitchell with whom Anthony collaborated as he tried to cultivate Little Rock's funk and soul in the shadow of Stax and Hi Records. This anthology will make influence amongst the history of southern funk and soul is transparent, as his story of how he helped turn a stranded road band into the Gap Band.
This comprehensive True Soul Records anthology including a 10-page, booklet chock full of photos, ephemera and extensive liner notes - not only carries the rare distributed funk and soul 45s that led the likes of renowned collectors DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist to Lee Anthony's door in search of Anthony's fabled treasure chest, but also includes previously unreleased boogie, disco and party rap recorded in True Soul's early-80's twilight. You can find this all contained in a one of a kind 4xLP boxset, with each sleeve donning the True Soul logo that Anthony held so dear.1. Thomas East - 'Slipping Around (45 Version)'

The Litmus TestCut Chemists Litmus Test is a self-mixed retrospective showcasing one of the 1990s great DJ/producers repertoire.
Originally released in 2004, the album ushered in his solo era as a precursor to his Warner Brothers debut release
The Audience Is Listening.
A mix of selected productions/mixes Cut Chemist had done to date - some for hire, some for pleasure, and many for
the group hed become famous with, Jurassic 5. This compilation is a good snapshot of his career, and makes one
realize the level of talent that was quietly lurking behind the turntables in J5 - from his work with retro-funk label
Now Again (Bunkys Pick) to backpack Hip Hop kids Ugly Duckling to futuristic complex rappers Blackalicious
and bedroom cut-up exercises in Lesson 6, Cut Chemist made a case that established his legacy as one of the
greats of the era, expertly segueing and blending a catalogue of his own compositions, ending up with a new album,
which turns out to be a real solid listen.
For fans of: DJ Shadow, Edan, Q-Bert, Jurassic 5, Quannum, The Roots, Stones Throw Records and the Cut-Up genre.No Track Listing Available.$17.99Vinyl LP - Sealed Buy Now
Quality ControlJurassic 5 flexed serious old-to-the-new muscles in the '90s,
beginning with their independently released single
"Unified Rebelution" in 1994, and book-ending with their stellar debut
full-length: 2000's Quality Control. They walked a tightrope between
underground and mainstream hip-hop, and toured alongside rap peers
as well as punk rockers on the Vans Warped Tour.
With double the pleasure of your average hip-hop group - two DJs and
producers (Cut Chemist and DJ Nu-Mark); and four MCs (Chali 2na,
Akil, Marc 7 and Zaakir aka Soup) - they brought the late 1970s
"unison MC" style of pioneering groups like the Fantastic 5 and the
Force MCs to a new generation. Even more surprisingly, they did so out
of Los Angeles, whose hip-hop flavors generally leaned towards
Gangsta, G-Funk or Electro lines. Musically inventive and lyrically
forward-thinking, each song on Quality Control is a new adventure,
exploring engaging territory, delivered via one of the best live hip-hop
shows fans had seen in years.
From singles like the strutting groove of the title track to the throwback
doo-wop samples on "The Influence" and the catchy, keyboard
groove-driven "World of Entertainment (WOE Is Me)," to deeper album
tracks like the lyrical gymnastics of "Jurass Finish First" and the
thought-provoking "Lausd," Jurassic 5 consistently stepped to the
plate and their fans responded in kind, nearly pushing the album to
Gold status. Add the innovative DJ-and-sample workout which closes
out the album, "Swing Set," and you have one of the 2000s' most
unique and solid full-length platters.1. How We Get Along

Sound Of The Police (Out Of Stock)A live one turntable mix of African and South American inspired music.
This (record) contains African and South American inspired music from around the world. It was
constructed for the first of Mochillas Timeless series on February 1st, 2009. I had the privilege of
performing this set opening for Mulatu Astatke which was his very first Los Angeles appearance. I
recorded the rehearsal using the best parts of multiple takes. This live mix was performed using one Technics turntable, one Rane mixer, and a
Boss RC50 loop pedal. Only original 7 inch and LP pressings were used. Special thanks to everybody at Mochilla for having me part of this historic event. Shout outs to
Egon and Quantic for the opening sets and ongoing inspiration. Cut Chemist1. Track 1
