    Heaven Is In Your Mind

    Traffic was one of the most original and influential British groups of the 1960s, gathering a diverse set of individual talents in vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Steve Winwood, singer/guitarist Dave Mason, drummer Jim Capaldi and reeds player Chris Wood. The foursomes expansive talents and formidable creative chemistry allowed the musicians to integrate an array of folk, jazz, pop and R&B elements, infusing their eclectic stylistic mix with a playfully psychedelic spirit that perfectly captured the experimental sensibility of the times.


    Traffics historic 1967 debut LP (produced by noted studio vet Jimmy Miller) was released in the U.K. as Mr. Fantasy, but initially reached U.S. shores in altered form as Heaven Is in Your Mind/Mr. Fantasy. The American edition featured an altered track listing and new cover art with Winwood, Capaldi and Wood but not Mason, who had quit the band prior to the albums release.


    The U.S. LP added the British singles Paper Sun, Hole in My Shoe and Smiling Phases to the albums running order, along with a short snippet of the U.K. single Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush as a recurring motif between tracks. The American edition also tacked on the short closing track Were a Fade, You Missed This, which is actually the fadeout of an alternate version of Paper Sun. The American LPs title was quickly amended to Mr. Fantasy, and it was under that name that most stateside fans came to know the album, with the original U.S. edition becoming something of a rarity.


    In any form, and under any title, Heaven Is in Your Mind/Mr. Fantasy ranks as one of the most audacious and inventive rock albums of its time. Such catchy tunes as Paper Sun, Hole in My Shoe and Heaven Is in Your Mind combine stylistic adventurousness with effortless melodic appeal, while more introspective numbers like Dear Mr. Fantasy and Coloured Rain capture early stirrings of prog-rock and jazz-fusion.


    Sundazeds new vinyl edition of this seminal vintage disc completely restores the albums rare original U.S. cover art. The LP also features the albums incredibly rare mono mix, which differs substantially from the albums more familiar stereo mix. Pressed on pristine high-definition vinyl, Heaven Is in Your Mind/Mr. Fantasy now looks and sounds better than ever.

    Mastered from the Original Island Records Tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray


    Traffic were one of the premier architects of the acid rock movement in the '60s and blossomed further into one of the most important super groups of the '70s. Their recordings are the soundtrack to a generation of music enthusiasts that continues to this day and will forever stand the test of time.

Whether standout tracks from the pens of Dave Mason like the classic rock smash anthem Feelin' Alright? or the prog-rock masterpiece Winwood and Capaldi's classic Forty Thousand Headmen, the Traffic album has surely earned its currency over the years as one of the more important albums of the classic rock era.


    Filled with the piano driven melodies and vocals of the legendary Stevie Winwood, the hard rocking vocals and guitar work of the masterful Dave Mason, the explosive sax breaks by the late Chris Wood and the power drumming and vocals of the late great Jim Capaldi, the Traffic album will always be one of the most revered albums in their extraordinary career.

    Drive Soundtrack (Gold Vinyl) (Awaiting Repress)

    Gold Colored Vinyl


    Various Artists with Original Motion Picture Score by Cliff Martinez. A Hollywood stunt performer who moonlights as a wheelman discovers that a contract has been put on him after a heist gone wrong.


    The soundtrack features original music by Cliff Martinez (The Lincoln Lawyer, Traffic) with Eurosynth-styled songs by Kavinsky & Lovefoxxx (''Nightcall''), The Chromatics (''Tick of the Clock''), Desire (''Under Your Spell''), College featuring Electric Youth (''A Real Hero''), and Riziero Ortolani featuring Katyna Ranieri (''Oh My Love''). Rolling Stone Magazine named Drive the No. 1 movie of 2011.


    The Drive soundtrack raced to the top of the iTunes album charts, hitting No. 4 within a week of its digital release and peaking at No. 35 on the Billboard Top 200. The soundtrack re-entered the charts in February 2012 when the film was released on DVD.


    ''One thing that was unique for me about this project was having songs exert such a strong influence on the score,'' said Martinez. ''That helped to create a unified, one-size-fits-all, style of soundtrack... the 80s electronic pop style made a lot of sense to me. I knew that Nicolas [Refn, director] was in love with that sound and I saw a way to acknowledge it with vintage synth sounds and cover most of the dramatic food groups while referencing that style.''


    This blending of score and song is the perfect vehicle for Cliff Martinez. Martinez moved to California in 1976, just in time for the punk movement. He had stints as drummer for the Weirdos, Lydia Lunch and Foetus frontman Jim Thirlwell, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Dickies. He was also the drummer in the final incarnation of legendary iconoclasts Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band.


    Martinez has since received compositional credit on many of Steven Soderbergh's projects including Kafka, The Limey, Solaris, Gray's Anatomy, Schizopolis, Traffic (which earned four Oscars and earned Martinez a Grammy nomination), and the upcoming film Contagion. He also composed the music for Espion(s) and A L'Origine, two French films released in 2009 - the latter earned a Cesar Award nomination for best original score. His other credits include Pump Up The Volume, Wicker Park, Wonderland, and The Lincoln Lawyer.

    Mirror Traffic


    Produced by Beck


    Coming off a triumphant year of Pavement reunion shows, Stephen Malkmus has returned to the studio with Beck producing to record his fifth solo album, Mirror Traffic. Early press reactions are already calling this gorgeous, crystalline production the album weve been waiting 10 years for him to make, and it certainly contains the most heartfelt and indelible songs hes written in years. Gone are the long guitar workouts and jams that marked the last couple of Jicks albums, replaced by incredibly
    catchy and endearing pop songs.


    Recorded in Becks studio over a period of two years, the 15-track album ranges from hard-rocking political commentary (Senator), to touching, winsome folk (No One Is), to astonishingly virtuosic but melancholy and contrite kiwi pop (Stick Figures In Love). The sonics are stunningly clear and impactful, while the lyrics are as inventive as ever but more meaningful than they have been since Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain.

    Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic

    Hey, what's this? Well that, my friend, is the newest album from The
    Gotobeds, entitled Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic. It's their second
    full-length LP and their first for Sub Pop. Whoa, whoa, please slow down.
    I'm already completely lost. What you just said sounded like a stream of
    complete gibberish. Okay, I'll lay it out for you and if you have any
    questions could you yell them at me? SOUNDS GOOD. The Gotobeds
    formed vaguely around 2009 in Pittsburgh and play a mutant strain of rock
    music that is often filed under punk, indie rock, or 99-cent discount bin.
    WAIT, THE GOTOBEDS? I HEARD THEY WERE KNUCKLEHEADS! Only if
    the knuckle is the part of the human body that contains the brains. Much
    like their previous releases on underground stalwart labels like Mind Cure
    and 12XU, this new album artfully slips intelligence and experimentation
    into a dying art form. It's a harder feat than you'd think.


    And sure, their live shows have often been compared to an all night party
    where I feared for my life and the lives of everybody in the five block
    radius, and their recorded output is akin to the sonic manifestos of four
    men deprived of human love and raised on beer and Swell Maps, Mission
    of Burma, and old Fall records. But what you get with The Gotobeds,
    delivered in spades on this album, is smart, noisy rock with just the right
    amount of stupid.


    FAIR ENOUGH. SO HOW'D THIS GET MADE? It was recorded in bursts
    over several months of 2015 in their friend My War Matt's basement in
    Pittsburgh. Unlike previously, the songs were conceived and recorded in
    blocks, which resulted in a more experimental feel. But this is no chin
    stroking curate's egg. You like loud, double guitar leads? OF COURSE I DO.
    WHO DOESN'T? You're in luck, because this album is carpeted with em,
    thanks to Eli Kasan and TFP. On a song like 'Bodies,' it sounds as if
    you've walked into the biggest Guitar Center, but, you know, not terrible.
    Keeping it all locked down is the rhythm section of drummer, Cary Belback
    and bassist, Gavin Jensen. They allow the downright prettiness of a song
    like Red Alphabet to shine, and the lyrics on the anti-sexism thrash of
    Crisis Time to punch through.


    THIS ALL SOUNDS WONDERFUL, IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I NEED
    TO CARE ABOUT? Eh, probably not. Except that Tim Midyett (Silkworm,
    Bottomless Pit, Mint Mile) and some bum (Protomartyr) are featured as
    guest vocalists on Rope and Why'd You, respectively. Also, I'd be remiss
    to not mention the fact that the band's live show is a testament to the
    cathartic nature of speed, skill, repetition, noise, and red stage lights. If
    you don't believe me, ask the bands they have played with, like Total
    Control, Tyvek, or The Replacements. Also, they rep Pittsburgh harder than
    anyone possibly could and come off better for it...which is saying
    something.


    I THINK I UNDERSTAND. BLOOD // SUGAR // SECS // TRAFFIC IS THE
    GREATEST ALBUM SINCE THE LAST GOTOBEDS RECORD? Yes. Now
    please stop yelling. -Joe Casey, Protomartyr

    Territory (On Sale)

    Territory is the follow up to the Charlottetown band's Polaris Prize nominated and internationally acclaimed sophomore album, Little Jabs. Once again produced by Joel Plaskett, Territory builds on the promise of Little Jabs as the band continues to write and record sunny pop gems for the heart and head. The album also finds Two Hours Traffic discovering the shadows at the side of the road. Right from the get go this becomes apparent as the gold into lead alchemy of the rousing opener Noisemaker kicks in and by the time the title track tells its tale of disillusionment and betrayal you know you are settling in for a drive to the darker side. Indeed, songs such as Weightless One, Drop Alcohol, Wicked Side, and Lost Boys all explore the approaching dusk but just like the more hopeful tracks on the album (Happiness Burns, Sing A Little Hymn) they all lock into the close your eyes, sing along choruses and instantly memorable lyrics that have put Two Hours Traffic on the melodic map.



    Initially conceived as a two-piece, lead singer Liam Corcoran and guitarist Alec O'Hanley recruited bassist Andrew MacDonald and drummer Derek Ellis while attending university in their hometown of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. After releasing their April Storm EP in 2003 a friendship was struck up with Halifax hero Joel Plaskett who offered to produce the band's first proper album. They've been working together ever since. While their eponymous debut and their follow up Isolator EP were received warmly by critics, it wasn't until 2007's breakthrough Little Jabs that the world really took notice. Appearing on dozens of year-end best of lists, Little Jabs also garnered an ECMA for Best Pop Recording and was a finalist for the coveted Polaris Music Prize.

    Criminal Minded

    In listing the greatest albums in hip-hop history, one title never seems to
    stray from the upper echelons, no matter how many years pass: Boogie
    Down Productions' undisputed classic from 1986, Criminal Minded.


    Released amidst a battle between BDP and MC Shan that would redefine
    the New York rap landscape as it was then known, the album, which
    features the songs "South Bronx," "Criminal Minded" and "The Bridge is
    Over," captures the excitement, urgency and raw power that embodies
    hip-hop culture as we know it, with KRS-One's aggressive yet intelligent
    lyricism backed by Scott La Rock's hard-hitting, stripped-down beats.


    A true classic, Criminal Minded has been recognized by Vibe Magazine,
    The Source and Rolling Stone as one of the most important albums of all
    time. Traffic Entertainment Group and B-Boy Records are proud to
    present Criminal Minded, presented inn a double-LP pressing.

    Criminal Minded 7 Box Set

    Traffic Entertainment Group and B-Boy Records are proud to present one of the most influential and
    original albums in music history: Criminal Minded by Boogie Down Productions in a never before released form. One of the most legendary releases in the history of music is now available as a unique and collectable 7" box set. The entire original album is included across five 45s, housed in a durable box lined with two versions of the B-Boy Records logo. Each 45 is enclosed in a mini replica of the B-Boy 12" jacket.


    A true classic, Criminal Minded was included in Vibe Magazine's 100 Essential Albums of the 20th
    century. KRS-ONE's combination of street slang and Webster's dictionary knowledge backed by Scott La
    Rock's hard hitting, minimal beats helped set this album apart when it was originally released in 1986. With this now-classic debut album, BDP's hardcore stylings helped to redefine the New York rap music scene. Criminal Minded elevated the standards and proved that rap could be a dynamic and consciousness-raising medium. Since its release, KRS-ONE has gone on to become one of the most
    prolific and critically-acclaimed artists in Hip Hop history.


    This deluxe 7 inch box set is a new chapter in the storied history of one of recorded music's genuine
    treasures, Criminal Minded.

    I Wish My Brother George Were Here

    In the early 90s hip hop took a turn and gangsta-style rap dominated, making waves off
    the West Coast that rattled throughout the world. The East Coast's dominance was
    descending despite the success and positivity of Native Tongues acts like De La Soul
    and A Tribe Called Quest, who favored thought-provoking humor and cleverness over
    gangsta rap's grittiness and grim outlook. It was in this landscape that Oakland, CA's
    Del The Funky Homosapien emerged in 1991, with his debut release
    I Wish My Brother George Was Here.


    Cribbing equally from the East Coast's irreverence and wit, and the West Coast's
    P-Funk inspired production, (the album was produced by Del's cousin Ice Cube) Del's
    debut has rightly been heralded as a benchmark album for underground hip hop. I Wish My Brother George Was Here not only produced the underground classics Dr. Bombay and Mistadobalina (#9 on the 1992 Hot Rap Tracks Charts), but also set the scene for the success of the other less gangsta West Coast
    artists like The Pharcyde, Digable Planets, and of course Del's compatriots in Souls of Mischief.


    Above all else, Del is credited with injecting some much needed light-heartedness at a moment when it was truly needed.
    Since his debut Del has gone on to work alongside Gorillaz, Wu-Tang Clan, El-P, Handsome Boy Modeling School, and
    as a member of the acclaimed hip-hop supergroup Deltron 3030, and even with Dinosaur Jr.


    Traffic Entertainment now presents I Wish My Brother George Was Here as a special double LP reissue, featuring the
    original artwork, and all of The Funky Homosapien's witty and innovative rhymes intact.

    In God We Trust

    With Grand Puba's departure shortly after the issue of the group's debut full-length, Brand Nubian as a trio
    was no more. Grand Puba went on as a solo artist while Lord Jamar and Sadat X (formerly Derek) kept the
    Brand Nubian name and released the amazing follow up In God We Trust. The album quickly silenced anyone
    who had any doubt that they would be able to follow up their debut classic with another classic as they did just
    that.


    "Allah U Akbar starts things off and was a clear sign that they were back in business in a very real way. Songs
    like "Pass the Gat" and "Steady Bootlegging" show the no nonsense style that had come to be expected from
    the Nubians, while "Love Me or Leave Me Alone" surprised all with how perfectly they blended the subject
    matter of woman and relationships, without it being corny. "Black Star Line", "The Travel Jam" and "Ain't No
    Mystery" all round out the album and are a perfect mix of cutting edge production and the five percent subject matter the group is known to espouse.


    The albums classic single, the Diamond D produced "Punks Jump Up to Get Beat Down" was the cut that truly
    lit a fire under hip hop's collective rear-end. The album version of the song went hard but the remix utilized in
    the music video-confirmed that THIS Brand Nubian were here to stay.

    93 Til Infinity

    One of hip-hop's great lost masterpieces, 93 'Til Infinity is the best single album to come out of Oakland's Hieroglyphics camp, and ranks as a seminal early classic of the West Coast underground. The Souls of Mischief weren't even out of their teens when they completely redefined the art of lyrical technique for the West Coast, along with fellow standard-bearers Freestyle Fellowship, the Pharcyde, and Hiero founder Del tha Funkee Homosapien. The Souls come off as four brash young MCs who are too smart for their own good, yet they're so full of youthful exuberance that it's impossible to dislike them for it. They're also excellent storytellers, punctuating their tales with a wry wit and clever asides; still, they're able to take on the grittier subjects of violence and death with a worldliness beyond their years.


    The production -- all by various core Hieroglyphics members -- is just as good as the raps, driven by complex beats, unpredictable basslines, and samples drawn from spacy fusion records and East Coast jazz-rap crews. Main Source and Gang Starr both provide track foundations here, and it's possible to hear the intricately constructed loops of the former and the lean attack of the latter (circa Step in the Arena) in the record's overall style. A better comparison, though, would be to the effortless flow and telepathic trade-offs of A Tribe Called Quest. In fact, 93 'Til Infinity seems to actively aspire to the fluidity of the best Tribe albums; tracks often segue directly into one another without pause -- and the transitions are seamless. Although the title cut is an underappreciated classic, 93 'Til Infinity makes its greatest impression through its stunning consistency, not individual highlights. Put it all together, and you've got one of the most slept-on records of the '90s.

    No Need For Alarm

    After breaking out of the Bay Area underground scene in the early 90s Del The Funky Homosapien made a radical turn with his sophomore release, 93's No
    Need For Alarm." Casting aside the familiar G-funk vibe of his debut, perhaps as "No Need" was produced without the involvement of his cousin Ice Cube, he moved into a jazzier - some would say more East Coast direction on this project. The verbal content on "No Need" shifted as well, moving away from comic interludes and towards a focus on battle raps. "No Need For Alarm" was produced with his Oakland based Hieroglyphics Crew with Domino, A-Plus and Casual all contributing beats making the record one of the three "Hiero Golden Age" releases (along with Souls of Mischief's "'93 til Infinity" and Casual's "Fear Itself").


    Though some critics are harsh on "No Need For Alarm" and claim it's not as strong an effort as Del's debut, many disagree and see this release as being
    the first where Del really stood out. Regardless of which side of the fence one falls on that topic, it's without doubt that No Need For Alarm has stood the test of time and remains a challenging and uncompromising follow up from one of the most talented and eccentrically gifted artists to to ever emerge from the world of west coast hip hop.

    The Sleeping Bag Sessions

    Whether it's Hip Hop, it's face pointed reverentially to the Old School, or House stealing Disco riffs by the truck load,
    people are increasingly intrigued by back-in-the-day. And common to both the aforementioned scenes and much more
    is one person, Arthur Russell, a man some regard as the best songwriter of the 20th century.


    In 1981 Arthur set up Sleeping Bag Records with Will Socolov. The first release was the album "24-24 Music" as
    Dinosaur L. If you're wondering about the name it would appear Arthur would often use the names of extinct or
    near-extinct animals. On one production credit he's "Killer Whale, whilst the logo for Sleeping Bag is a Koala bear! Will
    remembers how they came up with the name for their label.


    "We were joking about names, and James Brown was on with "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" and I was sleeping in a
    sleeping bag in my apartment and I kind of made a joke about that, and Arthur said that was a great idea for the name
    of the company!"


    The line up was pretty much the same as the Loose Joints sessions, (which boasted the Ingram Brothers rhythm
    section) and a similar stream-of-conscience approach was taken with the recording itself. Russell arranged the beats
    so there'd be a change every 24 bars (hence the title) and the band would have to improvise the songs over the top. He
    also made sure he went into the studio when there was a full moon! The album is again very experimental, and makes
    occasional uneasy listening but the same magic is very much in evidence.


    Arthur would continue to be involved in production and mixing duties for the label, but parted company with Socolov
    in 1985. Arthur sadly died of AIDS in 1992 leaving behind many songs; as one obituary put it, it was though he simply
    vanished into his music.
