East Coast Rarities Volumes 50-59

Friday, February 4th, 2011

Stepping in quickly on the heels of the last set come volumes 50-59 in my east coast 12 inch compilation series. I’m going to try to get these all up in a relatively short period of time so that people who want to collect the whole series don’t have to wait forever. I know 10 editions at a time might be hard to keep up with but there are harder things in life to make it through. I hope these compilations find you kicking back and digging the selection.

East Coast 12 Inch Rarities Volume 3

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009


Today I am bringing you volume 3 from my east coast 12 inch series. I know I’ve said it before, but there are mountains of these. I just completed volume 115 the other day so there is a ton of music in store for you fans of that grungy, dark east coast hip hop. Most of these artists are from New York except for track 5, and I THINK Black Eye is from Washington Dc, but do not take my word for it. It might be New York too. The other exception to the NY rule is Real Live, apparently from New Jersey. These east coast 12 inch compilations have been a long time habit for me, and this is one of my early efforts. One of my favorite tracks is number 6. The Flatlinerz have in my own humble opinion, been unfairly labeled as wack imitators by fellow heads. I have to cry foul at this merciless accusation and rush to defend their product as high-grade. Maybe I’m smoking something but I’ve always dug them. Here’s a link and the tracklist. Enjoy!
