Vinyl Love 31-40

More vinyl love

I've a lot of Jhelisa records Dorado used make a good effort on the design side of things too

A great album and a cover very much of it's time some nice tunes on this!

One of the best albums of 2010 and another visually striking piece she rocks!

Like many great artists in music history, Ike Turner was a complex character who did a lot of wrong as we all know. It's a shame that this has diluted the legacy of his music amongst many; because their were not many more important people in rock n'roll. Jurassic 5 plundered this amazing album.

What an artist-one of the very best!

The pic says it all

Definition of the word "FLY"!

De la Soul ain't dead!

No copies left in One Stop Records in 94 so my man Curty Cut gave me his own personal one-soundtrack to a great summer in the States

Rest in Peace Curty Cut, who died at only 32 in 2002

One of the most iconic soul covers; my favourite singer of all time

Vinyl Love 21-30

Another 10 from my collection!

Great artwork on KIng Britt's Philly throwback debut including this

Sly Stone tricky jumping like this with skinny jeans!

The late Malcolm McClaren brings the vinyl love

The hair was of it's time, but they have always been originators behind the mic!

Dooley O was on Black on Red a few years ago when David Long brought him to Cork-he signed this re-issue of a great track with Steezo

another icon this time one of our own more people should check this album too

More old skool

A bonafide jazz classic on Blue Note records oh yeah!

From the same era this was a lovely 12" from Heights of Abraham, an off-shoot of Fila Brazilia used spin their records a lot

More vinyl love this was a nice concept album from a Philly crew who had some great tunes in the early 90's

Vinyl Love 11-20

Here's some more of my favourites from my collection

Love all of the Slave album covers too the disco era artwork was always interesting!

"Got a freaky, freaky, freaky, freaky flow control the mic like Fidel Castro"

more vinyl love and more Motown

Grace Jones albums are also always amazing think I have nearly everything she did on wax one of my favourite artists and visually spellbinding to this day

A Tribe Called Quest with arguably the greatest rap album of all time-and an iconic cover!

An always interesting artist with a crazy assed cover!

One of the best DJ's ever to visit Jam was Jazzy Jeff, a good guy too this was some record from back in the day

"It's like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder how I keep from goin under"

Public Enemy delivered one of great albums of all time back in 88, which they signed for me nearly 20 years later

Warmed up for this legend a few times and had him over at Jam where he signed this, a great album too

Vinyl Love parts 1-10

I've decided to start posting up pictures of my favourite records. I used have about 20,000 vinyl albums and 12"s and still have well over half of that so as you can imagine there is some great art and some iconic covers.

Here are the first ten!

Let's start off with the legendary B-boy and graf artist who passed this week, this was a pioneering tune
Ramelezzee RIP

Since it's Jam's 8th Birthday tomorrow here is a classic from way back in the Sir Henrys days unreal cover and banging tune

"Now for my next record, i'd like to return to the classics"

"Dance this mess around" and other nice tunes from a great new wave band

One of the best Stevie Wonder album covers and an under-rated album

another great cover, another great band and one of the greatest songs of all time-great price too!

1993, Fish Records, Liberty St! (got it signed years later)

Gig is cancelled in Cork, but at least the music is still here EPIC music on Motown

Love this; Mahalia Jackson

Finally for now, a bit of modern day soul and a signed copy of a great album

Yo this is my blog that's updated pretty much every day before 1pm Irish time
