Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Awaken, My Love!
Box Set - GLS-0209-01
Sealed 2017 180-gram 45 Rpm Double Lp Box Set, Cut At 45RPM. Includes Glow In The Dark Jacket With Exclusive Booklet Inside, Virtual Reality Headset With Instructions And Pharos Vr Companion App. Album Download Included, Offer Subject To Expiration. "Over The Course Of A Backpack's Worth Of Mixtapes And A Couple Of Albums That Won Him Commercial Success, If Not Critical Acclaim, Childish Gambino (Aka Donald Glover) Staked A Claim As One Of The Brainiest, Weirdest, And Most Inventive Rappers Around. His 2015 Ep Kauai Widened His Approach A Bit, With Glover Doing More Singing Than Rapping In A Hazy Modern R&b Style, Showing Off A Voice So Smooth That It's Almost Unfair That One Guy Can Have So Much Going For Him. While Working On His New Tv Series, Atlanta, Glover And His Longtime Sidekick Ludwig Göransson Seem To Have Had Some Kind Of Musical Awakening Brought On By Late-'60s Dipped-in-psychedelia Soul And Early-'70s Earthy Funk. "Awaken, My Love!" Has Fuzz Guitars, Vintage Synths Of All Kinds, Burbling Organs, Grimy Basslines, And Masses Of Backing Vocals Adorning The Songs; The Influence Of Sly Stone And George Clinton's Various Groups Is Strong, And Glover Doesn't Rap At All. He Does Use His Voice Like An Acrobat, Though, Sometimes Crooning Sweetly, Other Times Screaming Like A Demon. He Doesn't Have A Classic Soul Singer's Voice, But What He Does Have Is Personality And It Comes Through Loud And Clear, Even Through The Murkiest Moments Of Nasty Funk. Glover And Göransson Construct The Album Like A Soundtrack To A Nostalgic Trip, Hitting All The Sweet Spots Of That Magic Moment When Funk And Soul Got Truly Odd And Inspiring. Tripped-out Ballads Like "Me And Your Mama" And "Terrified" Bump Up Against Massive Jams Like "Riot" And "Boogieman," And Totally Oddball Moments Like "California" Match Up Well With Heartfelt Songs About Fatherhood ("The Night Me And Your Mama Met," "Stand Tall"), Which Give The Album Its Heart. Empowering Pop-soul Songs ("Have Some Love"), Gloomy Tales Of The Entertainment Biz ("Zombies"), Late-night Detours Into True Love ("Redbone") -- Everything Glover Tries Comes Off Just Right And Every Note On Every Song Is Perfectly Placed. Göransson And The Tight Crew Of Musicians Must All Be Dedicated Students Of The Era's Sounds, And They Play With Controlled Passion And Fire. It's Not An Academic Exercise By Any Means, Though. The Songs Are All As Memorable As Bootsy Collins' Star-shaped Sunglasses, And Glover's Vocal Gymnastics And Impassioned Delivery Vault Things Past Into More Rarified Air. It's True That The Album Owes A Deep Debt To The Sounds That Inspired It, But There Are Times When The Music, Voices, And Words Come Together To Make Something That Sounds Owned By Childish Gambino Alone. It's A Departure, An Update Of The Past, A Statement Of Artistic Intent From One Of The True Polymaths Of The Millennial Era, But Above All, "Awaken, My Love" Is A Stone-cold Blast From Beginning To End." Tiny Snag To Shrink & Bottom Of Obi-Strip On Underside Of Box. more

Because The Internet
Colored Vinyl - New - GLS-0152-01WM
Sealed 2022 Limited Edition Reissue Pressed On "Pink Toes" Colour Vinyl. Bottom Left Corner Ding & Crease. "Having Left His Full-time Role On The Hit Comedy Community To Concentrate On Music, Rapper Donald Glover Aka Childish Gambino Gets Broader And Bolder On His 2013 Effort Because The Internet, An Indulgent Kaleidoscope Of Studio Tricks And Celebrity Problems That's Still Wildly Attractive Thanks To Its Smarts And Ability To Swing. That Latter Bit Comes Courtesy Of Primary Producers Glover And Ludwig Goransson, Who Mix The Edgy Sounds Of Indie Rap And Indie Pop With The Best The Mainstream World Of R&b Has To Offer. Cool, Radio-friendly Crooner Lloyd Shows Up On The Creamy West Coast Dream Called "Telegraph Ave.," While "3005" Comes With A Chorus So Uplifting And Bright, It Makes The Nerdy Stay-at-home Wallflower At Its Center Sound Epic And Sexy. The Booming Influence Of The A$ap Mob Is Felt On Numerous Cloudy Cuts Like The Grand "Worldstar," Where Popping Pills At Coachella, A Martin Scorsese Reference, And A Twisted Sax Solo All Congeal Into A Dank Glop Of Hip-hop Hash Oil. Then There Are All The Instrumental Interludes That Divide The Album Into Chapters Or Suites, Because This One Reaches For Art With Some Interruptions For Getting Flashy On "The Worst Guys" (Where Chance The Rapper Is Merely Chance The Hypeman) And Crashing On The Couch For Either A Spliff, Or Maybe Spliff And A Sweet Snuggle, With Jhené Aiko's "Pink Toes." All Of It Flows Splendidly And Gambino's Wit, Hipness, And Lyrical Dexterity Are All Still Strong Points, With "I Got More Tail Than Petco," "More Green Than My Whole Foods/and I'm Too Fly, Jeff Goldblum," Plus A Reference To The "Ain't Nobody Got Time For That" Meme Being Some Examples. Still, Even With All These Strong Points, Gambino Often Frames His Angst And Anger With The Burden Of Being Born Rich (Something He Mentions Quite Often On The Album), Providing Plenty Of "We Should All Have Such Problems" Bait Or "Hierarchy Of Needs" Ammunition, Depending On The Listener's Viewpoint/bank Account. Even The Short "The Party" Finds Him Inviting Friends Over And Then Yelling At Them To Get The "F" Out, But There's Long Been A Wide Gap Between The Life Experience Of Rappers And Their Fans, Something Supported By The Growling Background Vocals On "Crawl" Provided By Mystikal, An Mc Who Did Plenty Of Hard Time When Most Of His Fans Have Not. Connecting With The Album Is Nearly Impossible, Understanding It Is Difficult, And Often Enough, Its Inflated Ego Is Irksome, But Because The Internet Is Too Free And Fascinating To Be Dragged Down By These Complaints, So If A Yeezus With More Flash And Fun Is What's Required, Gambino's Got The Good Stuff."

Camp
New - LP - GLS-0121-01
Sealed 3LP Trifold Black Vinyl Edition, With Custom Yellow Hype Sticker. Sticker Is Like 2011 Press But Unable To Confirm If Its An Original Or A Repress. Tiny, Light Bottom Right Corner Crease. "In The Time Before This Wonderful Album Named Camp Existed, The “actors Who Rap” Proposition Would Have Been All Red Flags. Brian Austin Green, Mr. T, Joaquin Phoenix, And Many Others Are On The “cons” List, While The “pros” Would Have Been Drake (Barely Counts, Unless Degrassi: The Next Generation Was Your Thing) And Maybe Avn Award-winner Dirt Nasty. These Were The Horrible Odds Community Star And Comedy Writer Donald Glover Was Up Against When He Took The Internet’s Wu-tang Name Generator To Heart And Became Rapper Childish Gambino, But Anyone Who Right-clicked On One Of His 2010/2011 Mixtapes Can Tell You, He Beat Those Odds, And With Camp, Indie Rap Fans Won The Lotto. The Gloriously Different And Wonderfully Inspired Rhymes That Downloaders Experienced Are Here Once More, And Gambino’s Style Is Still That Attractive Blend Of Heartfelt And Humorous Or, In A Nutshell, I-just-wasn’t-made-for-these-times-and-yet-i-love-the-internet With “that Ain’t Even Ironic Bitch/i Love Rugrats!” Being A Quintessential Punch Line/decree. He’s Got That Kanye-sized Swagger On Lock Too, As The Triumphant “all The Shine” Struts With Vibrant Colors, And He's Just As Complicated, As The Track Slowly Descends Into Self-doubt And Earth Tones Before It Fades Into The Soft And Meek “letter Home,” All Of It Adding Up To Some Kind Of Bizarre And Ambitious Bipolar Backpacker Suite. Nerdy Wonders And Insightful Laughs Are The Reasons You Want To Visit Camp Gambino, But You’ll Stay For The Lush, Surprisingly Large Production From Glover And Ludwig Göransson, Along With The Thrill Of Untangling It All For Hours On End, Separating The Incredibly Cool Moments From The Touching Ones And Figuring Out How This “actor Who Raps” Packaged It All Sensibly In A Concept Album About Summer Camp That Doubles As His Showcase Debut. Try It And Be Stunned Or Submit To It And Be Satiated; Camp Is Like The Drake, Cudi, And Kweli Camps All Offered Their Best, But It’s Really Just Glover And His Overwhelming Bundle Of Talent, Taking Indie Hip-hop To New Levels After Spending The Day Working Alongside Chevy Chase. Remarkable." AMG Review By David Jefferies. more
